Experience a world of hearty flavors and aromas with this special winter beer. This brew starts as a Scottish ale featuring European and Domestic malts, giving Hullabaloo intriguing caramel and roast nuances. A blend of American and English hops delivers ample bitterness & unique hop profile. This is a big, rich beer with a nice, underlying complexity – Toast to the Season!

Bottle; poured a clear orange/amber type color with a khaki colored head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, earth, and fruit. A nice blended flavor; roasted, caramel, nutty with a good dose of hops in the finish. Touch of sweetness and more earth in the finish.

In all fairness I have heard this beer is usually good. I had a 12 oz. bottle from an overpriced 4 pack and it was bad. I mean face puckering bad. I am a home brewer and know that bottles do not do justice to any brew so I will give this beer another try and reevaluate my score at that time. The hops seemed to have lost all aroma and were flat out just bitter, as if the hops had been in the freezer for a while.

Thanks to Tim for the hookup while I was away! Pours dark copper with a medium cream head and lots of lacing. Great growler fill, carbonation level is perfect. Aroma is toast and nutty malts covered with loads of fruity esters. Flavor is big caramel and toasted malts upfront with very earthy clean hops and a light roast/burnt malt element in the finish. Really nice beer!

Some caramel malts on nose. Dark cloudy reddish brown. Caramel malt and some spice but weird off metallic taste as well that was pretty objectionable. Not good.
