Our most versatile beer. Good to drink as well as cook with. Light enough to quench a thirst and complex enough to accompany fine dining. Carmel malty sweet fades to a chocolate roasty finish and dry from a touch of rye. 1.057 OG 13 IBU 6%ABV

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Buttery caramel aroma, ringed with cherries and vanilla hints. Clear copper, thin yellow head. Rich caramel flavor, palatably buttery. Less fruity on the palate which is nice. Needs better QC. Rich, yet quaffable.

ChazMania (650) - Pasadena, California, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bomber poured into Stone IPA glass- malt and molasses on the nose, lightly carbonated reddish-brown. Good full body texture, roasted malt flavors yet really clean- very enjoyable and well made beer.

Reddish pour. Lots of caramel and spicy hop notes. Sweetish, malty, hoppy flavors.

regspeir (199) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2011
22 oz. bottle (courtesy of Hamilton23) poured an dark amber with a small off-white head which dissipated into a coating. There was little lacing. The nose was dark fruit, caramel and roasted malt. The taste is fairly sweet - brown sugar and caramel, tempered by rye and with a bready taste. The mouthfeel is thin with medium carbonation. While this is a fine stab at the style, with so many great beers from this brewer, this one missed for me. Not a bad brew at all, this just isn’t a noteworthy offering.

Terminus (3216) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - JUL 12, 2011
tap at the brewpub-pours dark orange amber with a small soapy white head. nose of earthy hops and carmel sweetness. the carmel malt almost gives this beer a medicinal note on the initial flavors but followed with alot of earthy/leafy hops and toasted grains. big toasted finish with notes of bread and cookie. pleasant body with a slick mouthfeal. A very solid sample of this style!

HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - FEB 7, 2011
The beer pours a nice reddish brown with a 1 finger head that fades quickly. Smells are caramel and orange peel. The taste is sweet malts and kind of bland. One of my least favorite of the 8 i had from alpine.
