I got it for the interesting name style and the fact that it wasn’t too expensive. Turns out its a solid beer, and tastes great. Looks more red than amber, but had some solid flavors. Caramel and a bit of honey are quite obvious in terms of taste, might have a bit of citrus and chocolate. After taste was good. I was shocked that it was only 5% ABV... it feels stronger. I would recommend it.

12oz bottle from Canals Rio Grande. Poured a murky orange-brown with a smaller foamy light beige head. Aroma of nuts, biscuit, light chocolate, earth. Fizzy carbonation and a watery mouthfeel. Flavor is nuts, toast crusts, light chocolate, tea leaves, old raisin bread dough. Meh, could of sworn I rated this before but the ratebeer database seems to disagree.

ARH (829) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2015
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aromas are a mellow and muted with tones of toffee, grains and biscuits, with undertones of chocolate and nuts. The beer is a rich, hazy, dark caramel color with a soapy, gelatin tan head that only retains a light amount and leave a touch of lace. The taste is a medium bittersweet, that’s not quite balanced. It’s a slick, oily beer with a fuzzy, zippy carbonationa and a medium light body with flavors of grain and dry caramel malt that finishes with a zip of spice and tastes of biscuit and minerals. It leaves an aftertaste of light grain, roasted nuts, and bitter wax.

hfmejias (1026) - Dover, Delaware, USA - APR 4, 2015
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, dark amber, nice off white head and some spotty lacing. Grain and malts on the nose. Taste is sweet and bready, certainly lots of malts and some nuts. Drinkable but not great.

12oz bottle pours a murky amber with some creamy, clumpy white head. Nose has malt, mild bready notes, some yeast, a little apple. Flavor follows, mild apple, malt, bread crust, mildly gristy. Watery finish. Sort of your standard pub ale.

On tap at Grand Trunk. Pours a hazy amber with a gray head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of bread with touches of biscuit and sweet grain. Flavor combines bread and biscuit with a touch of toffee.

Cloudy amber color with a weak white head. Looks like an ESB. Smells like yard chem and tastes the same. There is somethin’ wrong.
