COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed and dedicated to the believers of Ninkasi. Rich dark malt complexity is balanced by a plentiful hop presence bringing together perfection in every sip. Who knew believing had so many rewards.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2007 It only takes one Floyd to make a superior beer in Oregon. Jamie’s hyper-honed taste buds combined the utmost spectacular blend of ingredients to give a hop head exactly the beer I need. Medium brown-amber hue, sinister lacing head, and ninja kickin’ bitter finish that must be tasted to be understood. Boo yah!

This smells absolutely incredible. Sweet molasses with fruit, similar to a barleywine. Dark red-brown color. Flavor starts out malty, a little sweet, but with a hop that continuously grows to the finish.

22 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo in Natomas, CA. The aroma is sweet, sugary, and primarily floral. Some huskiness and caramel malt characteristics are also in there. Reminiscent of a nice red ale. Transparent ruddy amber body with a large, frothy, off yellow head that is very strong and leaves great lacing. Starts sweet and nicely malty with a great amount of chewiness. Some choco hints and some more caramel notes. I also detect some peat, too. Finishes with a little spicy hop bitterness. There is also a little tobacco in there, too. This is very smooth and nicely balanced. Great stuff.

liquidhedonism (185) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - OCT 6, 2014
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is malty, nutty, and a bit citrusy, with hints of toffee, biscuit, and hazelnuts. Mouthfeel and taste begins creamy and sweet, and finishes with a long sweet, bitter, and slightly astringent aftertaste. This beer is much more complex than I remember it being. Pretty great!

Great aroma. Incredibly looking beer with beautiful lacing. Astringent hop bitterness buried in a big, caramel, slightly roasty maltiness.

kereltis (33) - Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Strong almost caramel aroma with a very rich caramel, malt flavor with a hint of hops. Strong and great with a beef stroganoff. If strong rich beers are your thing, then you’ll love this double red ale. Well worth trying!
