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.

tmoreau (2134) - 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 (5496) - 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)

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

Shared bomber to shakers. Pretty sure this bomber is a few years old. The hops have mellowed and it is quite malty. Hazy red pour. Bitter. Good ale.

Bomber. Malty, nutty aroma with some sweet fruit and some booze. Pours very dark amber colored with a moderate head and lacing. Malty and nutty to start. Finishes smooth with some dark fruit and some booze. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rojum55 (12) - California, USA - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle Date: 09-28-12 Glass: Snifter Aroma: Some nuts, toffee I believe. Taste: Nuts, some light fruits, malt backbone. Overall: I think this beer would have been way better fresh, and I wished I had found a fresh bottle. But it was an okay beer, nothing to rave about.

coreyc1221 (258) - Truckee, California, USA - JUL 9, 2013
Smells malty. Nutty and slightly creamy aroma. Dark brown color with a pillowy tan head. Tastes creamy and nutty with a bitter aftertaste. I kinda want to eat tortas with it.

Bomber to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a hazy amberish brown with thin off-white head that dissipates into thin lacing. Smells solid; malty with notes of caramel, candy, some dark fruit, and bitter hops. Tastes like it smells with a nice mouthfeel. Good beer.
