COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes things go together so well, one wonders what life was like before it - like peanut butter and jelly, hippies and patchouli. With that in mind, we at the 3HB lab have created the Bromigo, bringing together smoked malts and maple syrup, amber ale and spicy hops, bold flavor and a sweet finish. It just goes together like Bro and Amigo. Enjoy friend!

This wasn’t what I expected. It billed itself as a smoked amber. No smoke flavor at all. What i got was a smooth easy drinking amber. Pretty good brew.

Growler from R’s Market. I like that this has a good amount of smoke to it. Not too much maple comes through, but it is generally sweet. Sweet and smoky works well. The downside is it doesn’t all meld together well for some reason. I suspect it needs better base malts to hold it down.

From a bottle poured a dark amber color with a good amount of head. Sweet spicy malty flavor with a quick finish.

Pours a dark amber with a foamy white head. Aroma is heavily smoky, and there is also some wood. He combination is a bit strong and reminds me of tobacco. Flavor is similarly heavy on the smoke, but here is also a light hit of sweet maple and caramel. Again I get tobacco from the blend of flavors. Perhaps a bit too heavy on the smoke, but this is nonetheless interesting.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice hazy amber color with a soft one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing. The smell had some light caramel malts. The taste was semi-sweet leaving just a tad to be desired as far as it seemed like it just needed a bit more perhaps an edge of more hops. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a slight sessionability about it. Overall, this was just okay, it wasn’t anything special but it wasn’t anything bad.

Excellent head. Solid body and deep amber color. Nice balance between hops and malt, but really modest smoke.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color with a massive foamy, rocky beige head and thick clinging lace. Aroma is both smoky and mapley, like maple cured bacon. Sweet toasted malt flavor, again more smoke and maple syrup flavor. Slightly medicinal, but the smoke is dominant. Subtle bitter finish with underlying notes of vanilla and raisins.

superspak (2778) - Michigan, USA - FEB 15, 2014
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly cloudy ruby copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big apple skin, pear, toast, light caramel, light smoke, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Poor aromas with overly estery notes and light malt presence. Taste of caramel, toast, smoked meat, brown bread, brown sugar, maple syrup, light chocolate, herbal, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, brown sugar, smoke, light chocolate, brown bread, herbal, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of dark malt, smoke, and maple syrup flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy, smooth, and lightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall, other than the horrible aromas, this was a very solid smoked amber ale. Well balanced dark/bready malt, smoke, and maple syrup flavors; and very smooth to sip on. This was quite enjoyable.

Unique smokiness and a biting bitterness really bring this beer together. I did not really get much in the way of maple flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
