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.”

A decent red, but something weird about it. Pours a great amber color with a tan head. Smells fruity. Taste is fruity too, but a strange aftertaste. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Glad to see E.J. Phair brewing again, although they have have been hit or miss in the past. This had a strong and clean malt, muted hop flavor but overly bitter. Still worked out okay, but not quite there.

Poured from tap an amber color with medium-sized frothy head. Aroma is malt and bread with a dash of floral hops. Flavor is sweet malt, bread, and a slightly resiny floral hoppiness that leaves a mild bittering at the end. It was tasty and nice to drink. I would drink it again.

dark brown hue with a tint of red –almost no head, small bubbles – nose of dark berries, cherries, and caddied fruit– Light to medium body – black cherries and a roasted malt taste, bright - aftertaste is long coffee and hops

Draft. Red/orange color small head. Sweet hops, citrus and toasted almond aroma. Medium body with a long dry nutty finish. I wouldn’t say its an amazing Belgian Strong, it feels more like a really nice hoppy brown. Either way it’s definitely pintworthy.

Slightly cloudy amber, no head. Orangey color and sceny. Sweet aromas, almost honey like. Sticky in the mouth, like molasses.
