4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Super Saver. Pours turbid North Carolina brown mud colored. The aroma is vinous, red grapey, with more fruit, some caramel malt, brown sugar, and floral hints. Tastes semi-dry, with some caramelly malt hints, plus cabernet, brown sugar, fruit, yeast, and honey, plus a dash of spice. It gets drier as it warms. As with the Quintine Blond, this one has a lot of sediment at the bottom of the bottle, with a corresponding increase in the aroma and flavor layers and complexity. Both the Quintine Blond and Ambree have impressed me. I’ll be on the lookout for the Stout.
