Our West-Coast style amber is aggressively hopped, with a strong malt backbone and a mild hop bitterness in the finish.

ARH (971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 12 oz bottle. The aromas is mostly bread with hints of warm caramel roasted nuts, and a touch of chocolate. Itís a clear, oily brown color with a fluffy tan head that retains well and leaves a good lace on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet with a medium (slightly less) spice bitter. The beer is oily and slick with a foamy carbonation and a medium body. Roasted flavors come forth first with a combination of caramel and nuts, as well as a touch of chocolate. The finish is dry and grainy with grass and spice notes. The aftertaste is spicy and a bit waxy, but not unpleasant.

This beer has a very simple "bready" smell with a strong flavor. Not really a great strong but still good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at Bodega. Pours a clear amber with a large fluffy tan head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has a combination of earthy grains and earthy pine with a decent amount of grass as well. Flavor is similar with dank pine and earthy grains as well as a biscuit backing.

12 oz bottle from our friends at Timers in Racine. The skull grabs you eye to eye until you pop the cap, when the waft of pine overcomes your fear of the death youíve set for yourself. Pours a dark, dark copper, clouded with unfiltered sin and evil. The taste is more an earthy malt, with a milder hop note teasing your breath at the finish. You want another...and another. A fine session ale. I knew this would happen! Iím just dying to have yet one more for the grave! What a way to go! Prosit!!

Bottle, thanks George! Excellent sweet caramel aroma with notes of chocolate and floral hops. Pours cloudy dark amber with a large tan head with good retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel malt flavor with a touch of chocolate and hops. Finishes dry with grassy hop flavor with a bit of a bitterness with some of the caramel lingering on the palate. Excellent, well-balanced amber!

Bought June 2014 as single bottle from Lemon Tree. Big malty smell right under the cap, and an impression of a higher alcohol beer. Rich, foamy head atop a brown ale body, darker than amber, I think. Taste is indeed big on malts. Hops are there as a kind of sting to one part of the tongue. There may be some oxidation going on. I think because just seeing a name like "Ambergeddon" on the label made me think it must be a higher-alcohol beer that can cellar, turns out it may have sat for longer than it should have.

On tap at Ale Asylum. Pours a hazy orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, floral hops, grassy hops. Flavor of sweet fruits, sweet pale malts, earthy hops, light bitterness. A tasty amber, not super hoppy as others have described but fairly hoppy for an amber. Sturdy palate, drinkable. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Excellant amber ale lots of flavor. Hints of chocolate aroma and taste the hefty ABV is well hidden with all the flavors more malt then hops a nice change from the many IPAís I have been trying lately.

Cloudy, amber-brown pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has pine with some bread and caramel. It has a medium body with smooth texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet, then finishes more bitter and dry.
