2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
I just did not like this beer. I thought it was a brown ale, but as an amber itís even worse. Aroma was decent...all malt with a some roastiness. Pour was a dark brown with no head. Taste was a bit watery and thin. Mostly dark and roasted malts with just tinge of hops in the aftertaste. I really quesiton the classification of this as an amber.

12 oz bottle from cardinal liquors, Chicago. Clear brown body with medium off-white/beige head. Aroma is lots of nuts, roasted malt and some pine hops. Caramel flavor with nuttiness, roasted malt and some fruitiness. I have to agree with Holdenn that this was a brown ale, very awesome.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2007 12 oz bottle thanks to xnoxhatex for bringing this. Pours a clear brown with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, roasted malts, nutty, with earthy/piney hops around the edges. Body is a little thin. Caramel with roasted/chocolate notes in the flavor. Very nutty and slightly fruity with piney and floral hops. I thought this was a brown ale (in fact thatís what the bottle says), but pretty tasty what ever it is.

Bottle. Clear brown, with a thin slowly developing head. Roasted malt aroma, with chocolate and caramel being most prominent. Heavier than expected, with a chemical, flavor that reminds me of the aroma of bug spray. Yes, it is off somehow.
