Shaker pint pour at the brewpub. Pour is dark golden brown, nice off white head. Aroma of toasty slightly sweet, biscuit maltiness with decent hop bitter behind that. Taste is the nose, slight sweet, biscuit malt, hop bitterness. At the end, there is a nice burnt roasty element. Palate medium to thin, drinkable with a lot of character. Nice amber.

had this in eary july while the family was in the springs for flemdawgs wedding on the 2nd. from the tap. poured a nice amber with off white head that didn’t hang around for very long. aroma nice malt and hops come out with some caramel. flavor, those hops came right out there which I wasn’t expecting since most ambers I have had are not this hoppy, but since I do like hops I enjoyed this.did get some caramel .

Clear red amber with sticky lacing. Very light aroma of caramel & brown sugar. Medium bodied palate is a little thin at the back;decent bitterness and a burnt caramel type flavor.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Poured a deep amber-brown color with a thin off-white head that left some light lacing. Sweet, toasty aroma with soft hints of caramel paired with some lightly piny, earthy hops. Brash, toasty entry dominates the flavor for the most part with some caramel trying to peak through before the moderately bitter, earthy hops take hold and linger into the finish. Moderate carbonation and average mouth feel. Overall, this beer is probably decent, I just really am not a fan of the abrasive toasted grain flavors found in this beer.
