COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hope and King is a full-body brew and is rich in malt complexity. Brewed with both English and American barley and many, many specialty malts this deeply colored ale has hints of roasted chocolate, caramel and raisins with very little hop presence. Our interpretation of the classic ale that originated in Glasgow, Scotland.

Pours dark reddish brown. Aroma is roasted malts, tea, peat. Taste is malty, staying sweet and containing none of the expected dry, roasty bitterness the aroma led me to believe. Short finish & aftertaste.

Had it on tap at Town Hall Brewery in Minneapolis! This definitely fits its description, rich in its malt complexity. Definitely a heavy tasting beer, dark amber hue, malt rye aroma, and that complex malt taste with a rye chaser.

This was one of my favorites sampled at Town Hall brewery while visiting Minneapolis. Very malt heavy, with some barley and toffee notes. Finish is clean but wet with booze, a little scotch and a nice blend. Super!
