Otter Creek’s Twentieth Anniversary Ale is a homage to our long-running flagship… Copper Ale. With four times the malts and hops, the traditional flavor is a bigger, bolder and more complex ale that can be savored for years to come. It features a blend of six malts with German & American hops and is a celebration of Otter Creek’s 20 years of craft brewed ales in Middlebury, Vermont

Leighton (15280) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Bottle shared at a ChrisO Tasting - London. This one I brought from the USA. Pours lightly hazy, glowing ruby with a fine, white foam head. Big malt aroma, hints of caramel and berries. Hefty sweet flavor with lots of ripe and semi-dark fruits, caramel, some booze, mild earthy hops and pine. Full bodied with average carbonation. Warming finish with syrupy caramel and other toasted sugars, plenty of very hot alcohol, caramel, semi-dark and ripe fruits. Not perfectly balanced. It’s OK. Pretty punchy.

Dogbrick (9998) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Sample at the Columbus Winter Beerfest on 01/14/2012: Pours a deep reddish-brown color with a medium tan head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. The aroma consists of caramel malt and dark fruits. Full-bodied with a sweet ripe fruity character and notes of malt and hops. The finish is fruity with a lingering sweetness left behind. Decent offering from Otter Creek overall.
