hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2009
Reddish-amber body with a quickly-disappearing white head. Very sweet aroma with notes of caramel, sweet fruit, and malt. Medium palate with fairly high carbonation. The flavor is pretty much all malty sweetness. Caramel up front leads to an almost artificial sweetness at the end. Somewhat sticky aftertaste. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Old rating. Bottle from Old Town. Clear deep amber color with a nice eggshell white head. Malty aromas with hints of toffee and apricot. Malt forward and sweet on the palate with a touch of bitterness. Medium body with nice carbonation. Bitter finish.

johnnnniee (2684) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottle from Sully’s Deep amber/copper color with a huge bubbly off white head that slowly recedes. The aroma is heavy on the caramel malt with hints of toffee and light chocolate. Light earthy hop aroma barely. The flavor is rich caramel maltiness with a touch of burnt sugar. Earthy spicy hop flavor with a light amount of bitterness. Solid darker lager brew.

"kind of a miss for me. decent malt/hop balance, but the flavor just wasn’t there for my tastes. supposedly a hybrid amber ale/steam beer, but i’ve had many examples of each style i liked better. just ok."
