A somewhat smoky dark ale. Taste of a porter, but light bodied with a little coffee aromaticity. Floral hops and earthy flavours. Dark roasted with a caramel-nut presence. Easy drinking and clean. Very delicious.

Dogbrick (11607) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Brownish-amber pour with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt and floral hops. Light to medium body with flavors of earthy malt, hops and toasted bread. The finish is sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

On tap at the Jolly Roger Taproom. Pours a clear, deep brown colored body with a slight reddish hue. Finger-width, frothy, light brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is nutty caramels with some grainy roasts and a light chocolate. A light earth and some fruity esters as well. Flavor is similar. Nutty caramels with some grainy roasts, earth, a light chocolate, and touches of fruity esters. Finishes clean and dry with a light roasty and earthy bitterness that is balanced with a light caramel and chocolate note. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid amber that resembles more of a brown ale. Clean, easy drinking, and flavorful. Good one.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - OCT 22, 2012
On tap @ Kylie’s pizza in Fremont, Seattle. Pours a dark brown-black with just noticeable ruby highlights. Little to no head that is dark-beige. Aroma is of subtle roast and dark fruit. Tastes like a very smooth porter with definite notes of roasted cocoa, medium coffee, and dark toffee. There is some bitterness but no other distinguishing hop characteristics. Definitely smooth and mellow with a moderate alcohol level. A decent example of the rapidly becoming harder-to-find dark ales.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Pours a dark ruby red color with golden amber edges and a half finger off white head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Sweet malt aroma with subtle earthy hops.  Hints of rye, caramel and toffee as well as some hazelnut and grassy hops.  Kind of bland really. Medium bodied with a crisp hop bite up front that lingers over the sweet malt notes into a slightly dry finish.  Spicy with subtle dryness.  Decently bitter but nicely balanced by sweet malt backbone that has hints of caramel, rye and toffee.

Pint on tap at the Wild Rose. Pours brown with amber tints and a good head. Aroma is malty with notes of toffee, dark chocolate, bread and nuts. Flavor is smooth with emphasis on malts. Tastes nutty with mild roasty qualities and a biscuity finish. I am shocked to see this is an amber ale. I guessed brown ale or even brown porter.
