The Flame is a very interesting concept and there is not enough space to describe it here. Youll 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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours a clear amber bronze with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a slightly tart fruity estery nose with some toasted caramel malty notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet dark caramel maltiness with some noble hop bitterness before a drier slightly warming finish. Could be a little smoother.

22 oz. bomber. Rich, amber pour with little to no head. Visible carbonation. Aroma of caramel and toffee, strong booze, sweet ripe fruit. Flavor is rich, sweet, fruity. Strong booziness. Warming and inviting. This is full bodied, rich, thick, medium carbonation. Finishes on a boozy sweet note. This is a really impressive, huge bock.

Guerde (1297) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 20, 2013
(bottle) Pours a clear red color with a very thin off-white head that does retain throughout consumption. Aroma is full of assorted dried fruits, with cherries, prunes, and raisins rising above everything else. The cherry flavor veers towards maraschino territory with further warming along with some snap pea. Weird. Could be some caramel and a bit of musty lager yeast, but not much besides that. The flavor follows suit with the aroma, but its a bit more dialed back, with the cherry again being the feature flavor, followed by some prune and raisin. Caramel and brown sugar make an appearance here, and the flavors intensify the more this warms. Starts to taste a bit like Dr. Pepper. Faint hint of graham cracker on the finish. This drinks incredibly well for a 9% beer, and the alcohol is never noticeable. Overall not a bad beer.

Lubiere (13655) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
A golden amber ale with a thin light mocha head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with solvent and grassy notes. In mouth, a sweet smooth vanilla malt with light curacao, alcohol warmth, not bad. Bottle at Istmus Beer and Cheese Fest, Jan 19 2012.
