Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Fall

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!

Purchased at Julios

A - Poured into a Duvel tulip a clear dark amber. With a very rough pour I was able to a one finger head that left some nice side lacing.

S - Some light malt sweetness and carmel along with some nice subtle smoke. Some maple too.

T - Sweet malts and more of the light maple sweetness. There are some nice smoke elements. Some slight hop qualities (little floral), kinda average though.

M - Holy cow is this thin. And watery too. Blech.

O - I'm really not impressed by this beer. I had rather high hopes for this one but it fell very flat. Okay nose, but everything else was medeocre at best. I hope their porter is better.

Bottle shared by Sammy, 22oz into a tulip.

Amber/light brown with an offwhite head, slight yellow tinge to it. Big head, and a fantastic amount of retention. Light smoked wood notes on the nose, syrup and some maple notes but isn't too saccharine. Subtle charcoal and an odd fruitiness. Taste has the smoke again, but comes across too sharp and out of weird in character for my liking. Charcoal, rotten apple, sweet maple syrup as well but the burnt notes prevail (maybe some sort of burnt plastic?) Carbonation was a bit too high, body was medium and burnt notes into the finish. Unpleasant and a drainpour.

Rather not too drinkable. Smokey wood taste, and its a nice aroma. Golden bodied with lots of lace. Sour finish and aftertaste does not go over well. Maple syrup got on this 49 most disturbing edible list, and a similar argument can be made for beer ingredients.
