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.

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!

Tap. Pours clear reddish amber with a small beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is tons or caramel and toffee, with a grainy note in the background, as well as a bit of raisin. Flavor is medium sweet with notes of chocolate coming through as it warms. Medium body.

On cask at the brewpub; they were out of the fifth seasonal so this is what I got in that taster. Pours a deep, clear-amber color with almost no head. Notes of caramel, dark fruits, brown sugar, toffee, and a very faint peaty note. The nose pops more than the flavor. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth, sweet mouthfeel. Nice Scotch ale and the cask treatment works well for it for the most part.
