Beer Tasting: Left Hand Double Sawtooth Chainsaw Ale

This beer's name is a mouthful and the product itself is big and wonderful too. Hailing from Colorado, this is one of Left Hand's "Big Mo" series, a bigger version of its Sawtooth Ale. It was purchased at Ron's School House Grille in Exton, PA. It comes in a 22oz. bomber and is corked and caged. Adam's Notes:
  • hazy ruby
  • sweet malty nose
  • stick sweet and slightly tangy
  • ESB with sweet overtones
  • taste doesn't match the nose
  • nose big and malty, taste is not as full
  • kinda like Rogue's Brutal Bitter with a big malty nose
  • good 1/2 inch head faded to 1/4 inch
  • I'd like to give it another shot and explore it a bit
Bryan's Notes:
  • reddish-orangish-brown; a nice variety of fall colors
  • solid head holds up for quite a while
  • sweet, toffee-like upfront flavor
  • a lingering bitter finish
  • strong malty presence in the middle
  • a bit smoky, too
  • a very interesting and tempting beer that kept pulling me back for more
  • but, yet, when the bottle was finished I didn't need anymore
