bottle. clear burnt red color with a small white head. big toasted malt nose with biscuits and lesser notes of caramel. flavor is significantly more hoppy than the aroma suggests. flavors of bitter citrus hops that are complimented with a nice toasty malt. i love this style. similar to an irish ale but with an american style hop addition.

12oz bottle. Deep copper color, rock off-white head. Nice lace. Aroma of toasted grains, earthy hops. Nice caramel nose. Tastes is dry caramel malts, mint, and then some leathery hops. Finishes with a good amount of spruce, some black tea notes, and nutty malt character as well. Very good, dry, and not overly hopped, and well balanced.

More of an amber to me. Red amber color with average head. Solid mouth feel. Hops and malt are evenly matched. Interesting mix of hops which are quite unique.

12 ounce bottle from Beer Run best by 5/30/12. Pours a clear copper color with a medium creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toffee malts and herbal, peppery hops. The taste is bitter citrus and herbal hops with a toffee malt finish. The bitterness lings a bit. Average carbonation, medium bodied, decent balance. Nice beer.

Nice lacing, good hop aroma. Reminds me of an english style pale ale/IPA. A lot of biscuity and caramel body with pretty mellow hop flavors that leave a of the show with the malts. Overall a nice balance and combination. Everything seems to go together really well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle severe in a pint glass. Poured a dark amber with red Hughs and two fingers of off white head that left a modest show of laceing. Nose was floral hops and heavy malts. Taste was hops light fruits with a little bitter and strange after taste in the finnish that i can’t put my finger on. Not the best beer i’ve had by stouts but pretty solid all around to say the least
