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!

Pours a dense mahogany honey color w/ full creamy froth. Froth reduces to a thick spattered canopy. Aromas of malt and rock candy. Full nectar w/ mellow residual effers that render a silky mouth feel. Massive caramel malts perform nicely w/ a moderate hop profile balancing it to the finish. Flavors of caramel, maple, cherries, and a slight hard candy essesnce. The candy performs as a modertor between the thick malt and asprin hops balancing this brew into infinity. Finishes w/ sweet asprin. Overall: for as big a brew this is, it’s quite blanced. Highly recommended. Connoisseurs Choice !

My brother-in-law and I split one of these on tap at the brewery, 4/13/06. Wow. Dark red with a nice firm head. Strong bourbon aroma. Very smooth and strong -- but it’s got everything a big beer could ask for. Superb.
