on tap...bartender error on the pour. Dark amber with way too much head (almost half the glass!). Roasty malty aroma, with chicken wing in the background. Surprisingly robust for an amber, kinda reminiscent of a porter. Very malty, quite good.

Damn, I had this last night and though it had allready rated it. Well, I liked this beer. I remember there being an enormous amount of maltiness to this beer. Lots of caramel and some sweetness too. Aroma was decent, but nothing awesome either. Pour waws a deep garnet almost mahogany with a slightly off-white head. A decent beer. Perhaps could use some complexity.

On tap at the Four Points Sheraton in Buffalo. Poured a very deep red-brown with almost no head to speak of. This was almost like a porter with its roasted malts and overstated hop presence. A little strange for an amber, but a pretty decent micro.

Quickly disappearing head. Aroma of honey, lemon and floral hops. A nice malt body and floral hop finish

Draught at the brewery, straight from the tank! Dark red amber with a good size head but it didn't stay around too long. Nice subtle earthy, roasty aroma. Flavour is well balanced malt and bitterness with a hint of toffee hiding in it at times. Good session drinking beer.

Thick creamy head. Superb processed malt, reminds me of Dunkels I had in Spiz. Clean, with good character, once again lovely roast.

Roasty malt aroma, dark red, with a small toffee head. Smokey, roasted malt taste, fine mouthfeeel. All in all a tasty version.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 27, 2003
Deep amber/red color, thin off white head. Some roasted malt. A bit of bitter and sweet interplay. Dry finish, medium bodied. Nothing wrong with it.

Brownish amber in colour with a thin off-white head. Nice aroma of roasted malt, a bit of caramel and some faint spiceyness. Medium-bodied; Roasty malt taste with some subtle spices and sugars. Aftertaste bittered from the roasted malt, but not overpowered. Overall, I thought this was more of a Scottish Ale, and actually liked it a decent amount. Nothing wrong with the pint I had! I got this on draught at the Pizza Plant in Buffalo, New York.

On tap in Buffalo - Red hue with a small white head, good lacing. Light to medium-bodied. Toasted grain, floral, berry, plum, and apple detected on the nose. Moderate sweetness and bitterness, hoppy and fruity tasting. Dry and lively mouthfeel. Lightly astringent finish. A very average ale.
