COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This isn’t your average amber ale. We appreciate the time you took in selecting this fine beer. We are confident you will enjoy every drop. Seriously, one sip is probably not going to be cause for alarm, but by the time you finish this bottle you may never be able to enjoy a “regular” run-of-the-mill beer again. Immense malt body will take your palate hostage; its balanced hop bitterness will write your taste buds a ransom note. It may sneak into your house, rearrange your living room furniture, shave your cat, and change the message on your voicemail while you sleep. You will be forever changed. “Revenge is a draft best served cold.”

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Draught at the brewpub (7.75%) Reddish amber, minimal head. Light orangey nose. Sweet and malty with clean, rounded mouthfeel. Some dough is evident until resiny hops takes over and gives a long bitterness. Well balanced, but not exciting.

bhensonb (10736) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark copper with a sllight off-white head. Aroma is very mild and indistinct. Flavor is smooth darkly roasted caramel. Except for a mild fruitiness it hasn’t got all that much flavor and is something of a clone of Newcastle Brown, though better. It does drink really well. Ends more fruity than anything. Quite smooth.

Ibrew2or3 (6779) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2007
On tap at Barclay’s in Berkeley, CA. Pours a clear deep copper with thin tan head. The aroma is light with faint roasted malts and malt sweetness. Not much else in the nose. The flavor hits with a bolt of semi sweet caramelized malts and mild pine and sweet citrus hops. The flavor is bold, rich and tasty. Solid, not stellar, offering.

Only house beer on tap, guess they’re not brewing until November probably. Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Good strong fruity and grainy aroma and taste with a crisp finish.
