Notes/Commercial Description:
Sometimes things go together so well, one wonders what life was like before it - like peanut butter and jelly, hippies and patchouli. With that in mind, we at the 3HB lab have created the Bromigo, bringing together smoked malts and maple syrup, amber ale and spicy hops, bold flavor and a sweet finish. It just goes together like Bro and Amigo. Enjoy friend!

Smooth, crisp, deep amber in color, pours with little head and a nice lace that sticks to glass as you drink it. Spicy hops, great flavor. Tastes smoky with a hint of maple syrup that provides a sweet finish. A perfect beer for the fall and would be an excellent breakfast beer if you're into that kind of thing. Another excellent beer from our friends at 3HB.

Had in a pint glass at Buddha beer bar- pouts a clear dark amber color with 1.5 fingers of bone white head, decent retention and some nice splotchy lacing.

Smell is interesting- definitely get the maple and smoked elements; reminds me of bacon. Nice.

Taste is more complex- some smoked malt up front followed by hop bitterness and citrusy notes, then more smoke and finally the maple at the finish. Finishes a little sweet but also with a lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel is crisp- medium body, moderate to full carbonation. This is a good one. This brewing company.

Pours a burnt orange/reddish brown with thick creamy head. Smell is lightly citrus with a hint of smoke. Flavor is very complex. Strong malty backbone with some bacony notes coming in, all under a veil of maple sweetness, and black pepper finish. Very enjoyable. Another hit from the guys at 3 Heads.

Extremely cloudy hazy amber in color. Not much of a head on it but if it only had that then I'd say it was absolutely perfect. I love the color.
Smells like brown sugar and pecan pie. If thanksgiving breakfast had a smell it would be this.
Tastes sugary and nutty. Sweet but not artificial. Very easy to drink. Malty at first but the aftertaste lets some hops through.
Mouthfeel is perfect for the taste. Very low carbination, refreshing.
Overall this beer is way better than I thought itd be and Im glad I tried it!

Three Heads Bromigo is a crystal clear, copper ale with a thin, dense, sand colored head that leaves a solid film on the glass. Smoke is pretty prominent in the aroma, but I'm not picking up any maple in there. There seem to be notes of citrus and pineapple, though. It smells like food... Maybe a shish kebab from the grill. It seems pretty full bodied, smooth and soft. The finish is very quick and it leaves behind a little chalkiness. It tastes smoky from start to finish. It's not really sweet or dry. The maple surfaces near the finish, more resiny than sweet. It tastes a little roasty and chocolatey. There's a little bitterness at the finish and then a kind of dark chocolate aftertaste. This is good stuff. It's solid and unique and not overstated at all. It's pretty easy drinking and could work as a session ale.

had a brief sample of bromigo before, but I haven't had a bottle until now. The three heads boys have put out some great brews with their intro, so I hope this will be just as tasty

A- bromigo pours the brownish amber with shades of light orange sprinkled in a fair head of foam. Lacing is faint on the glass, but the brew has the amber ale look spot on

S- sweet caramel malt is interrupted by the smokey wood scent. The finish has a brief whif of syrup and even a bit of spice

T- walking the walk.... 3HB said the brew would tie into the fall scene and bromigo does. The sweet malts clash with a good amount of warming smokiness that blends well together. While the flavor is not overwhelming, the profile is there. Bromigo has a warming taste that is finished with some spicyness to close off the sweetness

M- prickly carbonation matches well with the flavor

O- good brew to snag every fall. From day one, 3HB has been behind their beer. Instead of being simple with a pale ale, porter, ipa.... they have pushed out some unique brews from the get go (ie: kind, java, ontario etc). Bromigo falls in line. I will always have some 3HB in the fridge. Keep these seasonals coming!
