COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Flame is a very interesting concept and there is not enough space to describe it here. Youll have to visit our website for the complete story. But it will suffice to say that this is the "birth beer" of the concept. In this stage it is a blend of Autumnal Fire and a formula for something we whipped together and called "Imperial Fire." Combined they form the beginning of the Eternal Flame, a deeply amber hued Doppelbock that is 9.1 ABV of silky malt intensity.

Interesting. Has sort of an ethereal/zesty syrupyness. Flavor is very much caramel candy - - somewhere between the lightness of Werthers Original and the gumminess of Kraft Caramels, followed by a steely alcohol attack and lingering bitterness. Im finding this really hard to drink, and impossible to enjoy, but Im trying my best.

Pours a clear amber with slight off white head. Aroma is malted with hints of roasted caramel, stone fruits, and dates. Taste is sweet with a spicy finish Overall, I really enjoyed this beer because of the spicy warmth for the winter, but not an amazing beer.

hazy red-amber, tepid with no head. Dusty, cheesy diacetyl nose, bit of cherry and toast. Flavor is heavy cherry, sticky with lowest carbonation, bitterness toast and light lactic off notes through the end.

On tap - a bit underwhelming since the name suggests something bold with this beer.

Huhzubendah (2258) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 28, 2013
Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Thanks Tom. The beer is murky amber with a thin, off white head. The aroma offers fruits, sweet malt, alcohol. Plums and booze in the flavor. Medium bodied and a bit harsh in the finish. Needs some refinement and could be gentler on the palate.

Bottle thanks to CaptainCougar. This one poured a slightly muddy orange color with a wispy, off-white head. The flavor is slightly sweet, with plenty of malts.

BeerandBlues2 (9068) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle shared by CaptainCougar. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is caramel, cookie malt, melanoidins, dates and light diacetyl notes. Flavor is diacetyl, sweet malt and no hops or bitterness, and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a clear amber bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a slightly tart fruity estery nose with some toasted caramel malty notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet dark caramel maltiness with some noble hop bitterness before a drier slightly warming finish. Could be a little smoother.
