COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A striking ruby hue and spicy floral nose punctuate the pleasant sweetness of this brew. Crystal malt coalesces with the earthy flavor of Willamette hops. A hauntingly beautiful combination.

Deep amber, almost brown color. Bottle from GSO Winewarehouse. Slightly sweet aroma with a little licorice in there as well. The nose reminds me of a number of barlye wines Iíve had. The aroma sets you up for something big and full flavored but that does not come through. The beer falls a little short of complex flavors. Some sugar and some red fruits in there. Medium bodied and quick to finish leaving a sugary mouth coating at the end.

This is a nice brew from the Fo Co Brewery. Pours a clear amber redish color with an off white head. Aroma isnít great, but the flavor was good. Very smooth with a malty not-so-bitter taste. Of all the brews at this brewery, this is among my favorite.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - AUG 16, 2007
Pours dark red, small white head. Aroma is caramel malts and citrus hops. Flavor is very malty, lots of caramel, victroy and munich, witha slight touch of chocolate in the background. Hop bitterness with some citrus and pine but more bitterness than hop flavor or aroma. Very malty with hop bitterness with a good amount of chocolate and roasted malts in the background.

Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 31, 2007
Pours a hazy ruby red color with a medium creamy offwhite head. Aroma of citrus hops overlaying the toasted malts. Slight hint of plum and sweet malts. Initial taste starts Toasty! Lingering bitter hops fade quick into a smokey chocolately finish. Body is very light but compliments smoothly. Sticky mouthfeel. Fair head retention and good Lacing of the glass.

Lowe1983 (1351) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Pours a copper color with an off-white head. Aroma is of slight citrus hops, toasted malts, caramel, and some sweet malts. Flavor is very malty with sweet and toasted malts with a slight backbone of citrus hops. Finish is pretty light with not much of a lingering flavor. Somewhat decent for an amber.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 22, 2007
I like the aroma, nice grainy goodness and some hops. A little hoppy for an amber, but lots of malts come through in the finish. Still manages to seem a little thin. Decent though.

12 oz bottle. Pours a dark ruby with an average size creamy head. Aroma is tons of malty goodness with an overall sweetness and maybe even some wood notes as well. Mouth feel is nice and full with just the right touch of carbonation. Flavor has wood notes and lots of malts and finishes nice and sweet. Really nice beer great for sipping on a cool night.

TheShat (131) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2007
Bottle pours ruby red with a nice head that laces the glass nicely. the aroma is is slightly sweet with a bit of oak. The flavor is slighlty sweet with an oaky flavor with a hint of bitterness. The finish is more of the same and it sits on the roof of the mouth. this one is strange amber ale. didnt love this.

Nephilium (1369) - Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2007
Slightly sweet faint cherry aroma, with just the barest hint of hops. Pours red, with a fluffy off-white head that quickly fades down to a crown. The taste is not what I was expecting. Itís got hints of chocolate, smoke, and oak in it, with a moderate smoke/bitter finish. Overall... not bad, but not what I was expecting in an amber ale...
