Dropped into The Charleston Beer Exchange last evening for one of their free tastings.
I think I go there too often, as we’re on first name terms…
The name is apt. This beer has big flavor, aroma, and at 9.6%abv, strength.
It’s a dark red/brown beer, and very hoppy. I very much like hoppy beers, in fact a local brew, Palmetto Pale Ale, is one of my favorite session beers, if I can find it on tap.
This beer has a sweeter finish, and as well as being hoppy, is malty too. A nice balance in my opinion.
I don’t think I could make this a session beer, as it’s a little too strong to swaff a gallon down and remain upright, but I could easily be persuaded to try and prove myself wrong….
Get down to 14, Exchange Street and get a jugful while it’s on.
