This One Goes To 11 AleThis One Goes To 11 Ale

Brewed by:
Bell's Brewery, Inc.
Michigan, United States

Style: American Amber / Red Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
This One Goes to 11 Ale opens with bright, juicy aromas such as tropical fruits & ripe cherries, largely derived from massive kettle & dry-hop additions of Southern Hemisphere hop varieties such as Galaxy, Motueka, and Summer. The citrus & resinous pine notes of the Pacific Northwest hop family are also well represented, making their presence known through Simcoe, Citra, and the newly released Mosaic varietal, just to name a few. A wide range of specialty malts anchor the hops to this Imperial Red Ale, contrasting the assertive bitterness & juicy aromatics with a robust, toasty depth of flavor. Fermented with Bell’s signature house ale yeast, This One Goes to 11 Ale finishes with a lingering warmth.

This had some age on it but it was still tasty. It reminded me of a maltier barleywine and was pretty smooth.

This big beer's perfumey bouquet includes traces of light prune or plum, some cherry, alcohol and vanilla.
It pours beautiful ruby amber under a 1/2" off-white foam cap.
The beer starts sweet then malt flavors become more defined followed by rich hop flavors provide balance. Pitted fruits, alcohol, and a suggestion of bourbon and vanilla round out the palate. In the finish, malty, alcoholic, hoppy flavors slowly fade.
Big and chewy, with medium low carbonation and a pleasant warming.
