COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pure Milwaukee Genius Series 1: Made with three styles of fresh American hops and fruity ale yeast that requires greater fermentation, it finishes with a dark amber appearance, spicy hop flavor and bold, malty backbone. The punch this potent brew packs reminds us all that when you want to make a point, you’re better off making a statement.

Lagerboy (1070) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 30, 2013
Bomber. Opaque orange brown, short lived foamy tan head. Boozy malty hoppy aroma. Potent dark roasted caramel malt taste well balanced with floral citrus pine hops, some spice and heat. Average-soft carbonation, medium-full bodied, medium hopped. Well made but: DNFL (Definitely Not For Lagerboys)

beerbaaron (926) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Pours a clear ruby reddish orange amber. Medium, very frothy beige head, mostly lasting with good lace. Great hoppy aroma, pine, citrus, grapefruit, along with caramel to balance - sweet. Flavor is much the same with hops at center stage. Medium body. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Piney finish. Some alcohol warmth. Oily. Hop driven. Pretty nice drinkability, not nearly as big as many beers of this style. Have had this a few times and always enjoyed it.

Appearance is deep red, almost brown with a creamy off white foam cap. Aroma is a burnt sugar, cinnamon, earthy hop combo. Taste is deep, rich malt with definitive cinnamon character and a balance hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with a nice viscosity, low carbonation. Finish is dry with an herbal hop character and a bit of cinnamon

safhundos (3) - milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 29, 2013 does not count
Warming on a cold Wisconsin autumn day. Spicy initially followed by well balanced flavors throughout the mouth. Hop flavor lingers as the alcohol warms the throat for an extended period of time.

Nische (530) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 22, 2013
Pours a dark ruby brown with a light brown top. Aroma is earthy and pine hops with a hint of citrus. Taste is a really great mix of earthy, pine hop bitterness with caramel strong malt presence. Really well balanced.

probstblueribbon (2744) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Bomber from LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Very deep mahogany with a fair ashen-tan head. Aroma: Rich, deep burnt sugar, dark treacle, a little molasses, quite peppery and resinous, a little dark dried fruit, maybe some grapefruit, very deep and serious. Palate: Medium+ body, full, pillowy effervescence. Flav.: Tons of very deep and sweet malts, burnt sugar and dark treacle, some molasses, still sort of peppery and resinous, a little chocolate(?) and dark dried fruit, boozy, big; sweet with pretty good bitterness (30 IBU?? c’mon...) and a long, boozy, deeply malty finish.

Have had this in the cellar for a while. Big stuff, even with ageing.

bartlebier (1184) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - SEP 11, 2013
Draught sample + extra pint@source during & after brewery tour 23viii13. One-off, easily the standout brew of the tour. Medium roasted, abv inapparent. Exotic Black IPA hop profile complements confident malt&yeast fruitiness. Mid creamy mf. Guinness roast. Tasty.
