Brew Crew 09/15/06 BBC Hell for Certain

Brew Crew, September 15 2006 Bluegrass Brewing Company Hell for Certain
Official Website: www.bbcbrew.com
Description from Brew Crew:
BBC Hell for Certain is brewed locally in Louisville, Kentucky by Bluegrass Brewing Company. Listed on the label as a Belgian Style Ale, the beer seems also to have some stylistic leanings toward English style Old Ale and Barleywine. Pours a reddish-amber with a fairly short lived tan head. Although the sweet toasted caramel malt aroma is extremely bold and assertive, the body and flavor are more restrained than the aroma would suggest resulting in a surprisingly drinkable beer. The beer is medium bodies. The flavor is of semi0sweet toasted caramel malt with a subtle hop bitterness in the finish.

Hell for Certain poured as a dark amber color. It had pretty much no head at all. Hell for Certain smelled very malty with a hint of hoppiness. It tasted as it smelled, with the malt being a very dominant flavor. The aftertaste was bitter and lasted on the tongue for a few moments. I rate this beer as a Finisher. It was alright, but I wouldn't order another one.

Small head with a rich amber-brown color.
The taste was a full almost chocolatey malt flavor. Much Smoother than you'd expect, and finishes nice. It was an overall good drink experience, but so powerful that I could not drink more than a couple at a time.
