12 oz. bottle from a trade. Color is deep, dirty crimson. Smell is Earthy, woody hops with some caramel malts. Tastes just like it smells with a secondary nutty flavor. Medium body, with mild carbonation. Has a hop bitterness that just doesn’t work with the Sweetness and wood. Not terrible just not my type of thing.

Cloudy amber briwn color, thick tan head. Aroma and taste both have lightly burnt caramel and toast. Not bad.

A pretty good amber actually. THe flavor is a bit weak but the aroma is nice and bready.

Aroma of caramel, roasted malts and some English hops. Flavor of semi-sweet caramel with slight bitterness on the back end. Very well balanced. About the most flavor you could ever hope for out of this style, well done.

Bottle. Pours a murky amber. Light tan head with good retention. Mild caramel aroma. Flavor of same. More bitter then sweet. Too much bitter for my idea of an amber.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2013 Guess what, it is amber. Nose is caramel malts, and very light hops, some stoast buscuit malts, toffee, a touch of roast. One demensional. Flavor is caramel malts, toasty, toffee, peanuts, pecans, and an earthy toasty/roasty malt shinanigan. Medium full body. A re-rate from draft. Still has too many malt flavors going.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. This was a amber ale thats for sure but no Barrel flavoring to speck of. Not the flavor i was looking for.

Wow. Aroma is caramel, Light hops, drk red in color. Taste is Carmel, semi sweet, high malt, moderate hops that give the beer a bite at the back end. Very well balanced. The beer had a nice froth head from start to finish, lots of lace. May be the best red I have had! Highly recommended ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
