Bitch Creek perfectly balances big malt sweetness and robust hop flavor for a full bodied, satisfying mahogany ale. Like the stream for which it is named, our Bitch Creek ESB is full of character... Not for the timid.

Pours an even dark amber. Nice balance of fruity hop and malt on the aroma and flavor. Consultant taste through the whole palate. One of the better ESB's I have has in awhile. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark, cloudy brown, with a thick, dark tan head. Caramel malt, pine aroma. Toffee/caramel malt flavor...a hint of chocolate. Subtle piney bitter, creamy. A really nice ESB.

Argonaut Liquors, Denver sixer: Every bottle of this that I opened was a total gusher. The head foamed way more than is reasonable. Anyway, it poured brownish with a light brown-tan head (massive and thick because of the gushing). Aroma is toffee and caramel malts with some hoppiness. Taste is somewhat bitter and malty. Not particularly refreshing, but certainly full of flavor. Not really my favourite.

Beerenberger (1563) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2014 A pleasing malty aroma with hints of hops. A translucent brown pour with garrnet highlights and a voluminous tan head which produces abundant ringed lacing. The roasted malt and nut flavors up front are well balanced with floral hops on the back side. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a refreshing ESB. I’m glad I have 5 more to enjoy.

From notes 7.2.10 Poured from bottle to Sam Adams glass. A: Beautiful maple brown. Brown sugar depth. Medium clarity. Minimal head - only thin layer compensated by low ribbons. S: Extremely malty for a brown. Nice molasses, brown sugar aroma. T: Nice, balanced brown ale. Not exceptional, but a great beer for sessioning. M: Medium body with moderate carbonation that tickles the palate throughout life of beer. D: I find this a decent beer now, and plan to review again in the future. I know have enjoyed on subsequent occassions since this review, and feel as thought an update may be in order. Serving type: bottle 12-21-2010

Crash_the_dog (163) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Nice brown color, with a rich, although quickly dissipating head, when poured from a bottle into a large snifter. Toasted malt flavor, with mild hops. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel, and slight coffee aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
