COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hope and King is a full-body brew and is rich in malt complexity. Brewed with both English and American barley and many, many specialty malts this deeply colored ale has hints of roasted chocolate, caramel and raisins with very little hop presence. Our interpretation of the classic ale that originated in Glasgow, Scotland.

On tap at Town Hall. Pours a clear brown with hues of reddish orange when backlit. Aroma is caramel, malt and dark fruit. Flavor is full and sweet: malt and grain, sweet caramel, dark fruit complexity. Medium bodied, frothy carbonation makes for a creamy mouthfeel.

Pours dark reddish brown. Aroma is roasted malts, tea, peat. Taste is malty, staying sweet and containing none of the expected dry, roasty bitterness the aroma led me to believe. Short finish & aftertaste.

Tap at Town Hall during RBSG. From notes. Malty with caramel and toffee and a surprisingly fruity note. Very good.

Had it on tap at Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis! This definitely fits its description, rich in its malt complexity. Definitely a heavy tasting beer, dark amber hue, malt rye aroma, and that complex malt taste with a rye chaser.

This was one of my favorites sampled at Town Hall brewery while visiting Minneapolis. Very malt heavy, with some barley and toffee notes. Finish is clean but wet with booze, a little scotch and a nice blend. Super!

Nice addition to the house sampler. It was very malt heavy and nice and smooth. Overall, not bad.
