Bottle. Trade with Leighton. Cheers. Clear amber. Film of clingy, off white head. Spicy, biscuit, toffee malts. Some raisin fruitiness. Taste is burnt toffee sweet. Has a rising, quite harsh bitterness. Full body. Finishes sweet, with more of the bitterness. Ok at best.

Kind of a boring Amber ale that is middle of the rode. Not too winter like for me but I’ll drink.

hfmejias (1061) - Dover, Delaware, USA - DEC 21, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured dark copper, clear with a small white head and a bit of a spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel combined with some earthy notes. Taste is sweet, malts and caramel notes are predominant, slightly bitter and slightly boozy. Actually not bad pleasantly surprised.

Cybercat (4087) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Comes out of tap bubbly caramel brown with a thick buff head. Malty aroma has a note of cinnamon and a hint of hops. Crisp, malty flavor echoes the cinnamon of the aroma and the hoppy hint. Texture is so-so, but it goes down well. A good way to welcome winter and the new solar year.

billtheman (79) - milford, Delaware, USA - DEC 10, 2014
The aroma and appearance are pleasing, not an overwhelming chocolate taste, just enough so you know it’s there. Leaves a good after taste.
