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.

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 (633) - 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.

Had at Autumn Brew Review 2013, smells like musty grains and taste was similar and very sweet.

probstblueribbon (2857) - 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 (1480) - 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.

tmoreau (2288) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2013
On tap at the annual Chicago Beer Society picnic, and self served to a clear, plastic shaker showing a clear, brown tone, with a persistent, frothy, light tan head. The aroma started with a touch of yeast, then continued with light resin, hop cones, and toasty, caramelly & nutty maltiness. Medium bodied, moderately bitter, with a creamy malt mouthfeel. Next to the Edmund, my favorite ribs & other meat pairing beer of the afternoon.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2013
Bottle. Deep and dark, red. This has a rich, malty aroma, hinting at big things. Indeed this drinks with a rich malt essence, definitely laden with caramel and toffee, finished with a hint of American citric hops. Nice, big beer ... one to sip on the way to bed. (#5233, 8/29/2013)

monk191 (778) - California, USA - AUG 24, 2013
A very interesting beer. Pours a beautiful dark red color with a thick brown head. Smells like a scotch ale, but also very smokey. Taste starts out very smooth and malty, but then the smokiness comes in, with a bit of a hoppy aftertaste. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
