Our Alligator Ale is a rich mahogany colored ale with a surprisingly smooth finish. This beer is perfectly balanced with flavors of dark malts and hops.

ON TAP: one of the better ones of the bunch at Hops. Fairly substantial nose, deep mahogany color and a low head. Pretty complex malt tastes with an interesting blend of hops, but this is overall not so successful because the balance just isn't there. The flavor profile is all over the place in your mouth. Nutty, toasted, toffee, and bitter.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2003
Dark amber color. Pretty nice hop and roasted malt aroma. Good body, malty, roasty, hoppy (maybe just a bit acid). Equilibrated final, with roasted barley and bitterness.

The best beer I had here and undeniably a respectable brew. Very dark, though clear, and the thin head clung nicely to the glass. Not an overwhelming aroma, hinting at a Scottish ale, but on tasting I got a burst of deep flavors, as if they’re trying to label a porter an ale so as not to scare their run-of-the-mill-beer-drinking customers. A bit creamy with soft carbonation. Roasted, malty, hints of chocolate and a whiff of smoke, with a finish that ends with unfortunate notes of celery. A decent brew. (at Eden Prairie, MN location)

Pretty nice brown ale, mahogany in color, nice soft lacy head, excellently balanced, lots of hops in the nose & in the finish, some great malty sweetness in the flavors as well, pretty good dark/brown ale

Basically I thought it Was an over hopped stout. Went great with my sausage and steak. Nothing more can be said really. Almost pitch black color.
