Often referred to as Burning River Pale Aleís big brother, this stock ale is remarkably balanced for such a highly hopped beer. A rich deep blood red color makes this beer scary enough to be served every Halloween and a few other times of the year.

thedm (5215) - Fort Wayne, USA - DEC 27, 2005
This bottled brew marked bbf 11/20/04 poured a large sized head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting light tan bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of hoppy caramel malt. Its mouth feel is initially tingly smooth with a hoppy aftertaste. Its flavor contained caramel hoppy notes. An above average brew.

12oz bottle from Dough77...Thanks Tim! Pours a dark copper color with a slight white head. Nose of berries and hops, some light apricot and some bread. Taste is very bitter and very hoppy. light bread here as well, with a nice bit of sweet caramel malt thrown in.

Hard to pick out specifics in the aroma. Some hops and citrus. Fairly smooth but the end is pretty bitter. some grassy notes. For the style, not a bad brew I guess...but I donít care for it all that much.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - DEC 7, 2005
Poured copper/golden with a thick white head. Good retention. Smell like citrus, graitfruit, caramel, courant and orange. Taste was the same. A little bitter at times but on the whole quite smooth. Good bready taste as it went down. Palate was hoppy with good sweetness. Another solid offering from this good brewery.

guzzler67 (1598) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 4, 2005
Clear, reddish copper appearance with a fairly large, long lasting head and good lacing. Flowery, citrusy Cascade hope aroma along with a hint of toffee from the malts. Full bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Taste started out well hopped and was balanced by caramel malts. Lingering, fairly dry finish.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2005
Bottle from Rileys in Madison. I was quite surprised as I thought this was a lower ABV as it was well masked. More of Caramel candy bar with a bitter finish. The hops didnít take on the sweetness allowing this some complexity.

hopscotch (10265) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 27, 2005
Bottle... Clear, amber ale with orange highlights. Small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. Citrusy, fruity aroma with a very slight pine undertone. Moderately bitter, grapefruit flavor with a solid, caramel / malt backbone. Full-bodied and ultra creamy with medium carbonation. Finishes dry and grassy. Great brew! Thanks to scraff for the bottle.
