Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Sweets very sweet and carmely. Taste cloyingly sweet and raisin aftertaste. Kind of like a belgian but without the heavy alcohol. Not very good I expected more from this too bad.

Squatters Big Cottonwood has a medium, soapy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, deep amber appearance, lots of streaming bubbles, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of piney hops, bread crust, and sweetness, and the flavor is strongly of hop oil, with sweet bread crust, some toffee, and a bit of pecan shell. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Squatters Big Cottonwood finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and sweet. It is a delicious beer. RJT

DrSilverworm (6020) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to my parents for bringing this back from a road trip. Shared 4 ways with the family. Bottled 4/24/13. Mostly clear amber-red color. Thin khaki head. Loose dots of lace. Medium body, smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly crisp. Lightly dry finish. Caramel malts, lightly toasty. Some decent light earthy, light spicy hops. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Pretty good amber ale, definitely above average. Better than expected.

This is one of the best ambers I've had funny they call it high gravity. Nice hop aroma. Balanced very enjoyable wish I could get that low gravity brew at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
