Deep amber/rust color, tan cap. Nose is malt and hops in balance - pine and citrus, caramel toffee and bread. Similar flavor with a medium slightly sticky body and moderate bitterness. Solid.

AleWerks Pumpkin Ale
Dark copper orange from the bottle. Nice nose and flavor of fresh baked pie - spices are there, well balanced with a creamy feel and taste and a bit of pie crust for good measure.

AleWerks Paycheck Porter
12 oz bottle from Growlers to Go in Short Pump, VA The porter poured a deep black color with a tan head that quickly dissipated. No lacing. The aroma was mixed with roasted malt, chocolate and hints of coffee. The taste was sweeter than expected with molasses and roasted malt. The porter has a medium body with soft carbonation. The finish was dry with some some hints of coffee.

AleWerks Weekend Lager
Bottle. Clear and golden, with little to no activity or topping. Crisp and malty, with a definite biscuit edge. A better interpretation of American macro lagers. (#6862, 1/3/2017)

AleWerks Brewmasters Reserve Grand Illumination Ale (Bourbon Barrel)
Butelka 00043/2500. Niezły profil ABW, chmielenie tutaj przeciętne, beczka praktycznie minimalna. Słodkie, ulepkowate, ale nie męczące. Pijalność zdecydowanie ponad przeciętna. Gdyby nie ta słaba beczka, to byłoby bardzo dobrze.

AleWerks Chesapeake Pale Ale
Sampled on draught at Washington Dulles Airport. Hazy orange colour with a thin white head. Aroma of sweet malts and fruity hops. The taste is very pleasant;- biscuit-like malts followed by fruit flavours of orange marmalade, lime and peach. Refreshingly bitter, but not as astringent as some APAs, which is a good thing in my book. Fresh tasting and highly drinkable.

AleWerks BBP (Bourbon Barrel Porter)
Jest nieźle. Niezwykle kremowe, aksamitne, beczka po bourbonie niezwykle subtelnie. Mega pijalne, wszystko nieźle ułożone. Może to nie jest state-fo-the-art stylu, ale wciąz niezłe.

AleWerks Cafe Royale
Średniak w swojej klasie - beczki jak na lekarstwo, cały aromat przykrywa kawa (taka fusiasta, lekko palona). W smaku również dominuje kawa, lekko kwaskowate, średnie klimaty. No i ciało takie wodniste. Średnie bardzo.

22 oz Bottle This was purchased Kroger in Short Pump, VA The ale pored a amber color with a small beige head that quickly dissipated. The aroma of sweet malts and spicy hops greets you. The taste was more complex with citrus mixed with spices and pale malts. The ale has a medium body and soft carbonation. Overall very good but not a match for Bitter Valentine. The finish had more spices with some floral hops.

Deep, dark brown beer with a thin beige head. Nose of coffee, vanilla, unsweetened cocoa, and dark molasses. Flavor is not quite as rich with medium roast coffee, burnt sugar, and a little smoke finished with a mild roasty bitterness. Pretty good.

22oz bottle. Poured a dark orange, slightly ruby red color. Aroma was some boozy malts, floral hops, caramel malts - some booze on the nose. Flavor was similar, though heavier on the caramel than I think I normally like. The bottle was from August, but it's not that old. Interesting.
