COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bitch Creek perfectly balances big malt sweetness and robust hop flavor for a full bodied, satisfying mahogany ale. Like the stream for which it is named, our Bitch Creek ESB is full of character... Not for the timid.

This beer has a special place in my heart. Bottle conditioned. Brown color. 3/4 inch head. Malty. Slightly sweet. Reminds me of backcountry camping in the tetons. Beer tastes even better when you have to hike 8 miles to your campsite.

C-. Pours a clear brown color with khaki head. Not bad, but way too bitter for a brown

foyle (416) - Wyoming, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. A 1" cream colored head falls slowly with plenty of lacing. Color is deep coppery-brown. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel and rich roasted malt. Flavors of caramel, molasses, toasted bread, ripe fruit, citrus. A very well balanced brew with the hops and malt both making their presence felt. Delicious.

The aroma is awesome and filled the room. Nice plum and other fruit hints. The appearance is a dark brown with a thin cream head and nice lace. The taste is nice and smooth. Overall a nice beer.

Marduk (7182) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 2, 2016
355ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Hazy brown color. Huge size, thick tan head, stays. Husky, grainy, sourish, acidic, citrus in aroma. Husky, roast, grainy, spicy hops in taste. Spicy hops and sweet caramelly roast in aftertaste. Quite high carbonation. Feels bit old, but not a disaster. I kind of like it.

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 1, 2016
355ml bottle - thanks dwyerpg! at 6.0%
Really hard to pour, frothing everywhere. Otherwise nice brown, spongy tan head. Pleasant malty brown aroma, roasted, but just a hint of sour acidity. Very rich bready roast, again a hint of sourness. Not so much that it really detracts from the taste. Light palate, carbonation way too high. Bottled 22/10/2015. Nice bitter finish, real hops. Spoilt, but still pretty decent.

GTAEgeek (2117) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 13, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a big, beige head. The nose is burnt toast, licorice, and pine sap. A little sweet, with a harsh bitterness. Medium to heavy body, astringent, thick, and clingy. This is an acrid, overly roasted beer.

Listigovers (1086) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2016
Ruby red beer, big tan head. Smells like caramel and a bit of hops. Has a bit of a bitter aftertaste, dry malts, pretty easy to drink.
