COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Bomber from Liquor Loft. Opaque copper pour with thin light tan head and spotty stick. Aroma is nice blend of sweet caramel malt, lemon and pine. Taste is dark fruit sugary, pine, floral and then a meaty slick medium palate. A little of the floral bitter stick in the finish. It’s a perfectly average good beer.

Acknud (1072) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 21, 2011
Amber yellow pour with a small head. I get a sweet, over ripe fruit aroma like grapes that have hung a little long. The taste may have a little sweet grape to it but it is mostly malty with a good hop finish.
