Bottle. Dark copper. Dominant caramel malts and some dark fruit. Interesting choice for a spring release but, very solid all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meilby (9728) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2015
Draught @ Taproom, Coastal Extreme Brewing Company, Newport, RI
Pours clear amber with a small off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, nuts, caramel, malt dust and hint of chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long malty, nutty and caramel finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Itís more like a brown ale but still very nice.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2015
On tap at the taproom. Almost clear in the glass, dark amber in color and with a small, dense, beige head. Nutty, earthy, roasted aroma with a nice fruityness and a piney touch. Coffee hints. The flavor has a nice bitterness, itís dry and medium to full bodied and a nice carbonation level. Roasted malts, bread, nuts and coffee hints. All lasting for a good while. Pretty wonderful this one, would go well with burger, cheese, pizza and lots of other good food. 150607

kramer (5393) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear light amber body under a one finger frothy beige head that had decent retention. The nose is fairly dry with some earthy malt and some minimal hopping. Thereís a bit of caramel in there, but itís not central to the aroma. The flavor is a little overly grainy with toasted and dry husky grain. Just the lightest bitterness on the finish Itís a bit rough in texture, but at least itís not overly sweet. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation. Decent effort at the style.

AirForceHops (4681) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Purchased a 12 oz. bottle off the clearance rack at Bottles, Providence, RI. Color is a clear Amber with very little head or carbonation. Aroma is toasted grain and caramel. Flavor is horrible even for the age. Has a herbal hop of sorts that balances the malt. Mild traces of sugar. Pretty simple and follows the style guidelines.
