UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 27.06.2013, tap @ Heartland Brewery & Rotisserie NY:
Small creamy shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral and sweet, caramel malts, dark sugar, hay, toffee, nuts. Taste is slightly sweet, caramel malts, hay, slightly roasted coffee, nuts, cardboard. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Fair enough.

I wish I knew what happened with this one... It was a decent amber ale with slight malty notes. I was too put off by the alcohol flavor in my drink though! It covered any enjoyable maltiness that might otherwise have made this an enjoyable beer.

18th Jan 2013 finds me in New York and the Heartland tap under the ESB.
I found this to be their beer that most suited my taste buds.
Good colouring, red and clean, on top a beige head of foam.
The aroma was malt infused nuts with caramel topped toffee apple.
The taste was also on the sweet side , but the hops gave it a more semi-bitter feel after the roasted malts calmed down in the mouth.
Flavoursome and most enjoyable.

Clear reddish amber with an off white head and modest lace. Toasted malt and caramel aromas. Caramel sweetness is prominent, accompanied by nuttiness and a gentle offsetting hop bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and carbonation and a clean finish.

I enjoy this red. It has a rich toffee that is a little sweet at the end, mild nutiness. Gorgeous dark red color.

On tap at Heartland, New York. Nice very dark red color. Unconvincing in relation to coffee and smoke flavor. Strange aftertaste.

[keg, Heartland Brewpub, New York City] Pours a clear amberish red, with a decent white head. Aroma is predominantly caramel, but with plenty of nuts, brown sugar, bready yeast. Flavours are similar, ends quite sweet for my personal taste, but is decent enough
