ALLIES WIN THE WAR! is 21st Amendment Brewery’s first ever collaboration beer, a traditional English-style Strong ale aged on native California dates and dry hopped with all-Northwest aroma hops. Available now in limited edition four-pack cans and draft.

BVery (11241) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Can. Deep amber pour with an absolutely monster frothy foamy cream-tan head. Takes forever for the head to recede. Nose is pine hops and bread. Palate is a little thin. Taste is bread, a bit of nut, and some pine hops late. Tasty brew, wish it had a bit more body.

daknole (11050) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 26, 2012
clear brownish pour, off white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, dates, fig, toffee, some citrus hops. Flavor is very malty up front with some sweetness, finishes with a nice juicy hop bite. Damn good.

Draft at Capone’s. Pours dark brown with off-white head. Nose is vienna malty, piney hoppy. Tastes of vienna malt, hopcitrus, resiny piney notes, mild nuts, and some caramel. Well hidden alcohol in this.

Bottle @ Brandon’s house, courtesy of arminjewell. Huge thanks! Reddish orange appearance with a tan head. Soapy, floral hoppy, mild dark fruity, sweet toasty malty aroma. Dark fruity, a touch tangy, soapy, floral flavor.

12 oz. can. Pours a clear caramel brown color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma has a pleasing combination of citrusy hops, moderately sweet fruits and some hints of caramel and molasses. The flavor opens with a shot of the dates and some citrus like hops. A moderate level of bitterness hits with some toasted bread notes. Finish maintains nice bitterness. I didn’t really know what to expect with this, but thought it was well worth the try.

DuffMan (10610) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 25, 2012
Can, shared with my wife. Beautiful deep copper orange with a thick golden head that leaves sheets of sticky lace. Aroma is very enticing: breadcrusts, earthy toffee, light chocolate, light pine. Delicious flavours of breadcrusts, sponge toffee, sticky dates, light citrus and pine, moderately bitter finish.

marcus (10584) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 15, 2012
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours reddish brown with a nice beige head and a fruity aroma. There is a dry earthy dark malt flavor with lots of carbonation and a bitter hoppy finish. A nice brew.

phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2012
12 oz. can from michael-pollack- thanks agian, Pollack! Pours a clear, deep ruby-mahogany color with a three finger-thick off-white head that leaves a lot of lace in the glass. Aroma of toasted brown sugar, sweet bread, raisins, dates, plums, and rum-like booze. Flavor of figs, plums, dates, rum bread, earth, and wood. More booze than in the nose, and more fruity to the nose’s sugary sweetness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a juicy, rich mouthfeel. Interesting beer.

onceblind (10330) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Clear dark ruby with a off-white head, lots of lace. Surprisingly hoppy aroma of oranges and floral grapefruit, and a little grassy herbalness, but also with a fair dark fruitiness, I assume the dates, as well as some firm toffee malt backbone goin on. Taste was smooth and fruity and bitter, with some grassy grapefruit hops and some dark sweet fruits, namely dates, as well as a bit of cherry and raisin. Bitter enough to balance, but sweet enough to be complex and malty delightfulness. Lots of toasted toffee and dark fruits. Nice!
