3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is toffee, mild butterscotch, malts and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is toffee/caramel, fruit, citrus and a tart/malty finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Full bodied aroma that features malt and molasses. A dark amber color and a slightly thick palate make me glad it is a bit foggy today. The flavor is close to toasted rice and dried stone fruit. And a hint of black tea. Very good

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Aroma of dried apricot and molasses, dark amber color, light crisp and short sweet/savory taste. Lingering brown rice finish. Solid beer that’s complex enough to be respected and light enough to be pint worthy.

Deep malty aromas. Delicious but simple malt with oaken flavors. Lightly roasted with some subtle hoppy undertones.

12oz bottle from Bytemesis, Thanks Mike. This is an amber but also has ESB on the label so I’m a touch confused, but the taste and aroma lead me more to amber. decent beer but i’m finding little touches of sweet toffee like flavors, not sure about that.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bitter hoppy malty toasty. Most ambers are big on the caramel and pretty mellow. Not this one!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from draft to a pint. Way darker that a typical amber. Creamy brown head that sticks around for a while. Tons of caramel malt on the nose. A solid amber, but I wish it were a tad less sweet. It’s a solid amber, if a touch too sweet for my preferences.
