4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
DATE TASTED: March 3, 2014... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky’s Tavern pint.. OCCASION: a Strat and Game of Thrones night... APPEARANCE: intimidating dark amber body; thick, creamy, beige two-finger head that proudly sits a good duration... AROMA: beautiful balance of caramel malts and bright West Coat hops; low citrus, more aromatic and flowery...PALATE: good beer/head mix in the sip, with the creamy viscosity rounding full-bodied impact...TASTE: a BIG pale ale, as old and well-intentioned as the 18th amendment itself; big pine cone bite, warm and malty late... OVERALL: I came back to this beer a decade after I introduced it at a house party (it was wildly successful that afternoon)--and after taking it to a poker night, I found a similarly positive reaction; strong, demanding pale ale that gently shakes the teeth and smooth out the throat; the caramel especially sweetens the end...

Thanks to iNBe. Almost red rather than amber in color. Fresh hops with a mellow malt to balance. Really quite a good all around beer. Serving: Bottle

At a tasting, thanks zvikar, small stable bubbly head, aroma of fruit and jam with some malt in the back, dark biscuit flavour with with some jam and a hint of smoke and a quite strong herbal bitterness, a bit too sweet and heavy. Fair.

"pretty well balanced...nutty malts, and a touch of bitterness and citrus from the hops. floral and nutty on the nose. thin-medium bodied. good looking dark amber beer."

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a tap. Healthy two finger brown head, nice rich brown color. Great, and I mean Great, aroma. Delicious caramel notes, terrific malt flavor. Just the right ABV, in my opinion. It’s described as an amber ale, but it feels more like a stout.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slim 30 keg pour at Evernote. Aroma is caramel, burnt sugar, malts, pine tar. Taste is caramel malts, chicory, and hoppy. Some alcohol burn and bitterness on the finish. A little too up and down between malts and hops for me.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass purchased in Denver, CO. A nice hoppy Amber. I tend to prefer the honey sweet ambers over the hoppy ones but this ain't bad.
