On tap, nice dark mahogany pour with a finger of tan head. Lacing evident through the entire pint, and head retention was excellent. Good malty taste with a nice hoppy finish that wasn’t too bitter. Excellent beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Boise. Pours a dark amber with a very small white head around the rim of the glass. A rich roasted malt nose with light spicy hops. The flavor is nice; earthy, lightly roasted malts, a sweet spicy hop bite. A lot darker than your average Amber Ale. More like a brown ale. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2/5/09 On draft at the brewpub. Aroma is dark fruit forward with rich molasses, but somehow not alcoholic. Hop flora is quite low. Appearance is hazy brown with a well maintained cream colored head. Flavor is molasses forward with roast caramel and low sour bittering, possibly english hops. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a moderate carb texture. It’s very unique, I couldn’t call it an amber, but don’t know where I’d place it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Loved the color in this brew - dark amber with reddish tones and a small tan head. Very strong maltiness with subtle roasty tones and some caramels. Not much hop presence, but overall a solid amber ale.
