2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep copper tinted amber coloured body with a very nice two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of nuts, roasted malt, caramel, pit fruits and a dose of metal. Medium-bodied; Assertive aggressive roasted malt flavours with tons of nuts and caramel coming through. Aftertaste shows a bit of coffee, although not much at all, but the roasted malt and bitter nuts really cuts through. Overall, a pretty mild and rather plain amber ale with a hint of coffee but more hints of nuts and caramel. I didn’t like this that much and would definitely pass on another. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Spirits in Washington, DC on 25-July-2009, sampled at home in Washington on 22-September-2009.

Advent but forgot if 12 or 13. Dark amber with a light head. Aroma of a strong ale, a bit of molasses or toffee and alcohol. Flavour is coffee, roots and a metallic amber ale. Seems like a mix of beers rather than a real coming together of flavours. Kind of a winter warmer.

Pours a deep, hazy amber. Aroma is espresso, caramel malts, nuts. Flavour brings out sweet malts with some fruit, and espresso. Finishing with a subtle bitterness. A bit medicinal on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours amber in color with a small off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is coffee with some caramel, chocolate and cereal grains. Taste is a coffee with citrus hop bitterness and a light chocolate, caramel malty sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation. An interesting amber ale with the addition of coffee. I am not a big fan of coffee, but this brew is pretty decent.

Bottle. Pours a brigh lt but dark brown color. Taste is an amber roasty coffee like taste with a flavorful backbone of malts and sugar . Very good and drinkable from a brewery I usually don't care for

The beer tasted delicious. If
