Many times we’ve heard, more is not always better. Chainsaw is a connoisseur version of our awrd-winning Sawtooth Ale, designed to befuddle silly generalizations about life. This Double ESB pours a brilliant deep ruby amber with a rocky near white head. The nose opens with bright spicy and herbal hops, with hints of dried fruit and port. The flavor starts with a chewy, bready malt and hints of brulee and kola nut that are suddenly swept away by thyme-like and hoppy bitterness. The strong herbal flavors then give way to a dry finish of licorice, gentian, and Italian bitters. We hope you enjoy!

Aroma is sweetish with fruity hops and some caramel. Flavour is sweetish with caramel, some vanilla, spices, fruits and hops. And an ”American Strong Ale” ‐feeling. Good!

Draught. Pours a relatively clear amber color with a smallish head on it. Nose and taste are both fairly malty, yet has a bit of a bite to it. Very interesting drink...

On tap at Bennos. Pours reddish brown with a fine off-white head, some nice lacing. Aroma has pine, southern comfort and toffee. Taste is of cherries, a woodiness, some grassy hops and alcohol. Finishes with some length; sweet and syrupy, with alcohol. Complex and nice!

Reddish brown pour with an off white head. Aroma of sugary candy and toffee. Taste is caramel, earthy, and a little spicey. This was very enjoyable.

ReggieDunlap (2931) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Pours an opaque deep amber with a medium tan head. Aroma has lots of candied fruits...alomost a mild vanilla...very lt pine. Flavor has a bit more pine...cuts the sweetness of the candied fruit...tastes like a barleywine. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is fruity/bitter and dry.
