COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Flame is a very interesting concept and there is not enough space to describe it here. You’ll have to visit our website for the complete story. But it will suffice to say that this is the "birth beer" of the concept. In this stage it is a blend of Autumnal Fire and a formula for something we whipped together and called "Imperial Fire." Combined they form the beginning of the Eternal Flame, a deeply amber hued Doppelbock that is 9.1 ABV of silky malt intensity.

DuffMan (10596) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 28, 2012
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium orange amber, quite hazy, with a white head that settles quickly into a flat thin skim. Nice malty aroma and flavours: caramel, breadcrusts, dark cherries. Chewy malts, sweet and lipsmacking good! A delicious doppelbock!

phaleslu (10547) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2012
12 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! Pours a clear, bright amber-red-orange color with a small off-white head. Super sweet aroma, with notes of toasted sugar, dried fruits, cookie, and toffee, with maybe a hint of spiciness. Flavor of sweet and caramel malts, sugar, red apple, nuts, and a bitter booziness throughout. Light-medium bodied, with a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure what to make of this one. Maybe let it sit for a while? I don’t know.
