100% Wisconsin malt of six different varieties impart the natural toasted color to the bottle conditioned unfiltered ale. Clean hazelnut notes result from these carefully chosen barley malts. Hops from Slovenia, Bavaria and the Pacific Northwest give Fat Squirrel its backbone.

ARH (1049) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2015
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. Aromatics of sugary, warm baking spices, and fruits come out first, then turn more malty and roasted by mid sample. It pours a clear, oily orange brown with an off-white, foamy head that retains a medium ring with a light web surface, and leaves behind a snowy lace on the glass. Medium sweet and bitter balance out the taste of this beer. It’s smooth, with an almost creamy carbonation, and a medium light body containing notes of roasted nuts. As it warms the palate picks up more caramel. It finishes dry and spicy with a mildly astringent and toasted bread aftertaste that mellows quickly. After an extended period, the aftertaste comes through as a light spiciness.

SpongeRuiner (1049) - Michigan, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Thanks to HisBoyElroy on the split. This beer pours a very dark red color with minimal head. It has a fresh light hop aroma. Not a whole ton of flavor. A bit of a copper hop note with a refreshing quenching flavor. A slight amber flavor. Average beer here to me yet unique.

chicowv (477) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
12 oz bottle: Pours chestnut brown with a nice tan head and ample CO2 release. Aroma of nutty toasted malts with a hint of cheap American lager that kills the warm nuttyness. Taste is good roasted malts, nothing too fancy or overpowering. Palate is a little harsh but ultimately goes down smooth. Pretty good overall.

GIJOE (1014) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Pours a clear, copper color, with a generous, tan head that faded fast. Sparse lacing. The nose is toasted grain and caramel, malt, and notes of nuts and a mild hop bite. The flavor is mildly sweet. Medium bodied brew with lively carbonation. Very nice!
