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.

Tap. Deep red color with tan head. Smells of roasted malts and slight hops. Tastes of the same with a very smooth slight bitter finish. Very good.

TheHopster (748) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2014
(Bottle). Minimally filtered light brown appearance with thick head and lacing. Flavor of alcohol mixed with malt. This one falls short from this brewer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

akoeninger (343) - Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Bottle from Willy St Coop. Pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Very floral of apricot and citrus. Some candied sugared aroma as well. Taste is floral and juicy with a strong caramel, malt backbone. Slightly bitter on the finish with some alcohol. Slightly warming. This is a very enjoyable beer, I wish this came in more than sets of four. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

csaso (1225) - Missouri, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle - tan colored fair size head, murky dark brown color, sweet dark fruit and malty aroma and flavor, good fruity hop balance though, almost reminds me of a Belgian dubbel style ale - very good overall ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

SDalkoholic (2089) - Linda Vista, California, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: I was a little hesitant about this beer until I saw the ABV, and only then did I think this might actually taste good. Created a thick pillow of fluffy foamed head while the color was a glowing brown hue. This must be an old bottle because there is so much sediment floating the liquid was completely opaque. There was some scent of dead yeast in the aroma which I have started to really dislike, but there is a background of maple syrup, powdered sugar, and cinnamon and reminds me a lot of the French toast I make. The flavor is thick with molasses syrup and has a sticky residue in the palate. The malts are extremely sweet while the hops are in perfect balance and allow the malt to dominate the profile of this American strong.

peteinSD (1281) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle. Murky dark rust colored pour with a forth of tan foam. Aroma is heavy sweet malt with buttery caramel, pine, and slight hop bitterness. Taste is heavy sweet malt with raisin and light char over pine and bitterness. Mouthfeel is even and surprisingly not too heavy. Decent malt heavy strong ale with complimentary hops.

yngwie (12721) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. From a trade with a good Danish friend. A brown one, almost clear, and topped by a beige head. There’s citrusy hops in the aroma, sort of balancing the nutty, caramel-ish maltyness. Nuts, caramel, roasted malts, sweetness and a fine bitterness in the flavor. It’s full-bodied and soft on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation. Overall, perhaps a bit on the sweet side, but I’m not dissatisfied in any way. 130405

Strangebrewer (794) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
bottle. Poured dark brown with a nice laced mocha head. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Medium bodied, tight carbonation, almost buttery mouthfeel, tart dry warming finish. Roasted malt flavour with a hoppy punch. Sweet caramel and dark fruit with a peppery note, alcohol presence.
