12oz bottle pours a dark brown body with a very thin tan head. Aroma is bready malt with some subtle caramel and chocolate notes. Flavors follows aroma, but also brings along much more hop character. Very nice, complex amber ale. The wife approves, as well.

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.

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

Poured a dark copper brown. Light sweet aromas with a bit of a nutty taste and a big toasty taste on the palate. Finishes with a toasty nutty flavor. Not Not too big on this amber.

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

Very hazy amber pour with small off white head. Aroma was ok, floral hops mostly. Weak taste and funny aftertaste. Not a favorite.

Pours a rich copper, deep color color with a finger width off white head that slowly fades to cap the whole beer, leaving lacing behind as the beer is drank. The smell of sweet toffee and grain dominate the nose. The beer opens with a huge sweet, toasted grain taste that is quickly balanced by the hops leaving behind a pleasant, almost candy aftertaste with the back of the tongue bitterness from the hops. Has a medium body and a sweet mouth feel with ample carbonation. A good amber ale, easily drinkable, generously hopped and plenty of malt to balance it out.
