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!

Poured into a smaller chalice: appears amber, murky, dense looking; head is off white with a 1/4 inch deep head that dissipates to nothing with no lacing.

Smell is moderate caramel malt, some toast, light smokiness and earthiness. No maple.

Taste is a little neutral for a beer leading with fairly potentially prominent flavors: minor malt character, hints of caramel/toast, light smokiness with maybe oak qualities. No maple syrup notes.

Mouthfeel is a little astringent, harsh, sharp on the tongue. Moderate carbonation.

Overall a beer that needs to grab hold of a specific flavor or quality, malts are subdued and smokiness is light with no maple character.

Pours a nice Amber with a slight off white head that quickly dissipates.

Smells of maple, spicy/earthy hops, and roasted malt.

Taste is spicy hop up front with earthy undertones. It has a rich malt middle with caramel and maple coming through. Finishes dry with a nice nutty flavor.

A: Had this beer on-tap at Gene's Haufbrau, poured into a pint glass. Had an amber color and a slightly hazy texture. There was a quarter inch of foamy head that quickly dissipated. Very good lacing.

S: As expected, the smokiness dominated the aroma, with a hint of hops coming through.

T: Like the aroma, the flavor had a big shot of smokiness, along with a little hops, malt, and caramel. The advertised maple was there, but was a little muted. The smoke is quite pervasive, but not necessarily bad. Reminds me a little of Aecht's beers.

M: A well-carbonated beer with a smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: How much you like Bromigo is directly proportional to your tolerance of smoked brews. I like it, but to a certain degree. It can be overwhelming.
