Basement Batch is is a traditional American-style Pale Ale. Much like our infamouse award-winning choc beer, it's handcrafted with only the finest ingredients. Starting with a base of American-grown 2-row malted barley we add liberal amounts of caramel and Victory malts to give Basement Batch a rich, almost nutty, malt backbone to complement the unique citrus character Cascade hops, which are the gold standard for this style. Like all of our choc beers, Basment Batch is "bottle conditioned," which means that it's fermented a second time while in the bottle. This long-established method of carbonating beer will leave a thin layer of yeast on the bottom of the bottle. So, pour slowly and carefully to maintain clarity,and enjoy!

A - Pours a cloudy burnt orange with 1.5 fingers of white head that sinks rapidly to form crop circles. S - Lots of caramel malt, orange and grapefruit cascade hops. T - Rich caramel malt that is full and has a candy sweetness to it. Hops start in quick and keep the malt in check by offer a clean citrusy middle to finish. Has some tartness on the back end. M- Medium lush body. Nothing fancy here. Just a great unfiltered APA with nice caramel malts and clean citrus hops to offer a refreshing and very satisfying beer. Serving type: bottle 01-28-2011

Stevesie (336) - - MAR 24, 2013
Poured from bottle. Murky orange with a fair amount of dissipating head. Aroma had notes of fruit and bread. Nice kick and decent bitterness, but nothing spectacular. Drinkable, but fairly banal.

Bricktop86 (789) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - APR 8, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2012 Copper color. The pine and caramel notes lingering about were quickly overridden by the bitterness, astringency and light metallic off-notes. Taxing.

Not quite the big hop aroma you’d expect. This is pretty good; quite dry in the finish. The best finish easily of all the choc beers I’ve had. and maybe the best one too.

Terminus (3595) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 13, 2011
bottle-pours lightly hazy orange with a soapy white head. nose of oxidized hops and faint grainy notes. flavors show a decent beer here if it were in better condition. big cascade notes here and finishes pretty dry with some grapefruit notes even though there is oxidization. could be very good if fresh.
