As distinct as the ruddy lava butte that inspired its name, this ale pours mahogany red and has a rich toffee flavor from caramel malt and roasted barley. Amarillo and Tettnang hops give every sip balance and subtle bite.

Malt: Caramel, Roasted Barley
Hops: Amarillo, Tettnang

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Off-white 3 finger head. The color is a rich amber. Grapefruit and sweet malt on the nose. In the taste the mouthfeel is creamy, smooth and superbly balanced between malts and hops. Notes of biscuit, toast, honey, pine, grapefruit. The finish is grapefruit, pine and honey.

Draft nitro. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good earthy hop & toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.

Pours a deep reddish brown on nitro tap with thick tan head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma and taste of sweet caramel and bready malt, nutty notes, and earthy ending. This is a really nice balanced amber with great mouth and finish from the nitro.

Fatehunter (2244) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Pours a finger and half of head on a dark straw body. The aroma is sharp citrus and pine. The taste has a nice moderate pine and citrus bitterness, then mellows to a mild sweet finish. The texture is crisp. It smells great and tastes good.

Deschutes scores again! Pour is a big red brown in color, big thick head that retains and leaves a wonderful thick lacing throughout the beer. Mouthfeel is nice, slow carbonation, absolutely heavenly when it’s cool. Smell is creamed corn, smoke, bitter hops, a touch of caramel and toffee. Taste follows, the burnt caramel taste is a long bitter taste, drying to the max. This beer kicked my ass.
