Bottle. Pours a dark dark brown. Nice sized light colored head. Some very nice roasted malt, some floral hops and maybe a bit of spices on nose. Flavor is a really nice balance of dark malts and smooth hops. Sessionable and very nice!

Bottle shared alexsdad06.
Poured a clear brown color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasted and had very good lacing. Good roasted malty and small hop aroma. Medium body with slick smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
Good complex session brew.

A lot of flavor in this beer. Very heavy and flavorful. Will give massive headache in the morning, but delicious to enjoy by the pitcher.

On tap at the Jolly Roger. Darker mahogany body with a small cream head. Balanced nose of hops and malt. Hops give an herbal spicy character and the malts provide caramel and chocolate making this into a richer amber.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle thanks to BrewDad. This is one hell of an amber ale. Pours a dark red/brown color with a medium light beige head. The aroma is rich malts, dusty and fruity notes. Some rich caramel also. The flavor reminds me of some nice English beers; fruity and musty malts, somewhat dry and very flavorful. Loads of rich caramel also. Very nice. I could drink a ton of this.
