Had this from a bottle at Milwaukee's Bastille Days festival. Poured a welcoming dark amber hue. Had a delicious taste. Lots of sweet, bready malt, tempered with a minimum of hops, enough to make the taste refreshing, and not cloying.

A lot of Americans into craft beers seem to just want tons of hops. I think that explains many of the middling reviews here. Myself, I prefer it when the malt taste predominates. And if you're like me, you'll probably love this brew.

Yet another CANQuest beer in support of New Beer Sunday!

From the CAN: "Find out how Louie died. Louie's Demise brewed with noble German Perle & Tettnang hops, yields a rich and malty ale full of color, flavor & complexity - much like his legend. How to drink craft beer from a CAN: 1. Find glass; 2. Pour beer; 3. Enjoy! Breathe it all in. That's the best way to capture all the flavor Louie's has to offer. It's no secret that half of taste comes from your sense of smell."

Following the Crack & Glug, I had a solid finger of light-tan foam with excellent retention, like it was defying me to disturb it. Color was a reddish-amber with NE-quality clarity. BUPGOO! Nose was very caramel sweet, very malt-forward. I was kind of surprised by the relatively low ABV, given its intense sweetness. Mouthfeel was medium with a caramel/toffee/maple syrup sweetness on the tongue. Finish was super smooth, so much so that I was halfway through the beer before I realized that I hadn't finished my review. Yikes! The ABV may be higher than as advertised. This is TOO drinkable and CANnot go in my cooler if I have any hope of surviving the day.

12 oz bottle poured into a MKE tulip
4.8% ABV

A - Rich crimson blood red, Louie's Demise is wonderfully clear with a low off-white cap of foam that settles to a halo of bubbles, leaving specks of lace in it's wake.

S - Louie's Demise has a sticky sweetness reminiscent of unfermented wort from the get-go but the toffee and caramel notes are quickly quashed by dry toasted bread and earthy, grass-like hops.

T - The aroma's sweetness dies, becoming an afterthought in flavor as exceptionally dry toasted malt rises up, trailed by grassy, earthy hops.

M - Louie's Demise has a wonderfully smooth entry that's punctuated by the perfect carbonation level and finished with lingering malt and hop dryness and a mild touch of bitterness.

O - Fashioned after a lighter Scottish ale, Louie's Demise features deeper malt and hop complexity that any ordinary amber, showing through in it's sweet but dry, balanced flavor and smooth finish.

I had a bottle of this beer shortly before sampling the bourbon barrel aged version. I liked this version better. In appearance, the beer poured an amber color with a slight off-white head. It produced a creamy grassy aroma that really does not do much to excite the palate. In the initial taste, toasted malts stand out the most. The malts are accompanied by fresh grass and the mysterious herbal notes. Lightly carbonated, the beer is allowed to linger on the tongue a few moments before sliding into a dry aftertaste. Amber ales do not generally excited a cult following, but this one is fairly solid.
