COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Little Pookie's is a strong ale with a twist/ Ample portions of figs and dates give a rich honeyed flavor that accentuates the malt components of this complex beer. The bitterness balances, rather than dominates, the malty and fruity character of this GABF medal-winner

(Draft: Steelhead Brewing Company in Eugene, OR) This is the final beer of the night for me, and while the beers have been pretty ordinary, the two guys sitting next to me are far from ordinary. In between sips of beer, and often during sips, they’ve had me laughing out loud with their witty quips and funny banter. But anyway, onto the beer. Malty, sweet, caramely and woody flavor, a bit roasty in the background and perhaps with a touch of tartness. Nothing I can associate with hops though, which is fine. The nose is nearly identical, but less sweet. Thick, rich, somewhat syrupy body, very light carbonation on the palate. Dark ruddy brown color. Light tan head is sizeable on the pour, settling to a wide ring with some "powdered sugar" sprinklings inside. So between these two clowns next to me, and this really tasty Little Pookie, it’s been a great way to end this evening. Oh, and though the bartender told me who Little Pookie is, I’ve been sworn to secrecy.

A wonderful brown sugar and caramel nose. While the body is full of molasses with a wisp of chocolate then finishes slightly alcoholic and molassesy.

Malty boubon aroma. Thick red/brown color. Light hops, some grains in taste. Slight sweet aftertaste.

Dark brown color. Medium head. Aroma is molasses and fruit. A medium bodied strong ale. Malts are molasses and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Not much else going on.. Kind of disappointing. It’s not bad or anything, but it just sort of lays there, sort of dull and uninspired. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
