Pours a medium brown with some amber highlights. Moderate off-white head with good retention and lacing. Nice malty aroma with some citrus hop notes. Very nice complex flavor with layers of caramel, roast malt and citrus. Medium-full bodied and moderately carbonated. Really hides the alcohol well and very easy-drinking. Very nice effort from this new brewery.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear medium brown with a small tan head with good lacing. Nose is malt forward, a little raisin, charcoal and wood, but no vanilla. Slightly floral but mostly resinous hops nose. Flavor is very sweet, almost cloying but I suspect it is because of the quite high gravity. It ends rather bitter. Heavy mouthfeel. Round but not oily - oatmeal? Lingers. Not bad but a little too sweet.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep burnt sienna color with a thick finger or two of eggshell foam. The nose is inviting with some layered deep roasted malt, whiffs of citrus, burnt sugar, vanilla and earthy leather. The palate is round and flavorful, big toasted malt backbone with some nice nutty vanilla sweetness thats well balanced. The lingering bitterness keeps the sweetness in check and there is a glimpse of citrusy hop notes that ebbs and flows throughout the duration of the beer. Pretty nice offering ! Thanks lumpsowers for the can !

This one poured a light brown or amber color with a white head. Aroma was of herbal and bitter hops and caramel. Flavor was the same, light toast, caramel and bitting hops. Meh.

Can, from trade with Scoonerchamps. Ok aroma, malty, like. Wet leather blanket, earthy dark orangey brown color, good head and lace. Sweet salty flavor. Thicker body, thin creamy mouthfeel, bitter finish. This one is a head scratcher for me. I don’t like the aroma, flavor is better,though not appealing overall. Leaves me wondering what they were going for.....

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the pint can into a tulip style glass: amber brown color with a bit of suspension and about a half inch of tan, tight foam, fairly well-sustained. It smells of molasses, bourbon, pine and a bit of earthy depth. The flavor seems predominantly sweet caramel with roasty bitterness and a nice piney hop presence. Pretty tasty, it finishes with just a touch of sourness. The carb is adequate. I can’t help feeling this is a lovely counterpart to another local brewer’s Native Amber. It’s great to have quality Okie beer.

500mL can, pours a dark mahogany with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out dry dark fruits, toffee, and bread malts. Flavour brings out toasted nuts, toffee, dry bready notes, and dry dark fruits. Dry, slightly tinny, toasty and bready. Drinkable, but nothing special.
