COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This ale contains no actual copper but we’re pretty literal... It looked coppery, so we lamely called it a copper ale. Lots’a nice caramel malt though... Originally 5.9% alcohol by volume, currently

3fourths (8031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 12oz bottle. Dark murky rust colored. Large, clinging head of tanned lace surrounding the inside of the glass. Initially sweet apples and malts, then a big of a rough palate with flavors like tingling yeast, graham crackers, and bread crust. Some light spiced rum or brown sugar, perhaps. A light kick of alcohol near a sweet and mellow finish. A fairly good one, seems like you could dirnk a 6 pack a night and not be overwhelmed while still having a solid, semi-heavy beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2004
12 oz bottle, snifter. Big caramel, toffee, cereal malt (H); pine and citrus hops (M); raisin, pear, brown sugar aromas. Deep copper-red body crowned by a large, creamy, off-white head that diminishes but comes back with a quick swirl. Heavily sweet, lightly acidic flavor becomes a lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter finish. Has a great, raw, fresh hop taste in the finish. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. The bottom line is: solid malting, low acidity, fresh hops, creamy texture...what’s NOT to like!!??

Copper body with a light, tan head. The aroma is fairly hoppy with loads of sweet malt beneath. Sweet caramel, brown sugar, deciduous shrubs, toasted nuts, grapefruit and a touch of orange. The body is of average thickness, though a perhaps a thin if anything. The flavors are pleasant, showing a nice balance between the sweet malt and bitter hops, each giving way at times to the other. A decent offering where the none of the singular aspects of this beer are anywhere as strong as the entire product.

12 oz bottle: dark amber below a foamy, bubbly light tan head. Large, gooey butter, rose petal, caramel laced, piney hop aroma…large fruity malt initially dulls the tongue into submission…strong grapefruit alcohol quickly takes over, and is followed by a smooth, creamy malty finish. Though the palate was a bit thin throughout, this was a very tasty, fresh treat, and as smooth and drinkable could easily sneak up on you…enjoy

Honeysuckle sweet smell. Malty rich taste, but a smooth drinking beer. Looks like a brown ale.Hoppy aftertaste.

Pours a deep amber color. A sweet, floral, fruity, and strongly hoppy aroma. Hoppy flavor with a malty finish. Very smooth. Alcohol is very well hidden. I could see this stuff sneaking up on you. Lots of different flavor going on. Pretty good stuff. Feels light on the carbonation, almost too little.

Rich copper color, starts out malty caramel then a bunch of citrus hops come out to play, bitter finish lingers. Nice, thanks Drew.

My lord, this is a scary ass tasty beer. I am stunned that the ratings are not higher because it is awesome!!! Pours a beautiful copper color. Rich malty aroma with an orange twang. Lightly sweet malty flavor with some grainy edginess and citric hops to balance. Rich and full body. You would never guess the alcohol content…no wonder they call it the Kronic. Fabulous!

[draught] An odd ale indeed - red colorwith tiny head - aroma is mildly tart, with a little hint of hops, not really doing justice to the maltiness in the flavor - as others have noted, there is a surprising bitterness to this, that works shockingly well with the malty flavors of brown sugar (caramelized?), raisins, dough - bitter/tart finish -interesting.

copper..that’s a decent color description..head is average initially, mostly dissipating though. lots of caramel malts, but a good hop presence as well, albeit taking the back seat in this beer. also notes of burned sugar. flavor has a surprising bitterness, but with strong cookie dough and caramel maltiness, this may be the first beer where i actually think i might understand the cookie dough effect..but it may be something else. finish is quite hoppy and bitter and loooong! very good. thanks drunkasaskunk!
