COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Many times we’ve heard, more is not always better. Chainsaw is a connoisseur version of our award-winning Sawtooth Ale, designed to befuddle silly generalizations about life. This Double ESB pours a brilliant deep ruby amber with a rocky near white head. The nose opens with bright spicy and herbal hops, with hints of dried fruit and port. The flavor starts with a chewy, bready malt and hints of brulee and kola nut that are suddenly swept away by thyme-like and hoppy bitterness. The strong herbal flavors then give way to a dry finish of licorice, gentian, and Italian bitters. We hope you enjoy!

Cold 750ml bottle corked: Pours an opaque orange amber color with a small light tank frothy head which dissolves and leaves some bubbles around the edges and lacing. Aroma and taste are of sweet malt, caramel, orange, floral hops, and sour notes. Full body with medium carbonation. Ending is first bitter, then sweet, then slightly sour.

Cloudy lightish brown/red color. Slight off-white head. Very nutty aroma, malty. Malty taste, somewhat acidic. Corn syrup sweet-like taste. Not too bad for a malty beer.

Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Big Bottle. A barnyard fermented silage aroma eminated from the glass. Wet barley grain. Murky caramel body with good head and decent lacing. A caramel flavor was present but the wet barley grain aroma was also in the flavor. Dry wet grain aftertaste on the palate. Brew worth a try the aroma and flavor were little complexing to me.
