COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is very popular! Extremely complex and strong at 7.1% ABV. This beer is well balanced between the caramel-malt driven profile and the dry, supporting hops. Look for hints of dark bread and a slight fig or raisin taste all backed by a strong resin, but not overwhelming hop presence.

Poured from a 22. Aroma is hoppy. Flavor is malty, slightly sweet, hoppy (but not overtaken by hops). Has almost a slight peach (sweet fruit and bitter skin) flavor to it. The sweetness mixed with the bitterness and the malt is just fantastic. Overall great beer!

monk191 (2023) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
A nice basic red. Pours a bright amber with a grey head. Smells and tastes like a nice red all around, nothing super unique but good overall. Had on tap at the brewery.

Draft sample at the annex. Nice chestnut red color with a thin white head. Strong aroma of caramel malt and pink grapefruit hops. Spicy flavor that finishes with a lingering bitterness. Great without being too bold.

3.8
Braudog (6781) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle, release #33, 8% ABV. Deep mahogany, reddish brown with a firm head of pock-marked foam. Sweet malty aroma. Drinks with a stiff, caramel malt backbone, then adds a bit of woody sting, and finally an almost sour bite. Full-bodied for sure, this is a meaty brew. (#5577, 7/13/2014)
