The beer smells of nuts and caramel. The beer is chesnut brown with a small fading head. The beer tastes sweet with mild roast and nut flavors. Smooth, a bit thin, but nice..

Smells of toasty nut flavors. Appears rich golden amber color. Tastes like a full bodied maltier amber ale with chocolate and some toasted nut tones. Pleasing on the palate, a bit hoppy on the finish which I tend to like. Overall a great amber ale in my opinion.

A rich dark red. Lightly sweet with a hint of caramel. Malt is not over powering. Iíd give it íBest in Classí without hesistation.

boxofrane (1887) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans, listed at 6.8%. Not sure if the recipe changed or the information is wrong on RB. This pours a deep amber with a small off white head that quickly dissipates to a film. The aroma on this has a subtle hop presence but is very malty, dominated by sweet caramel. The taste is insanely sweet caramel, a pound of malt, followed by a very light piney hops presence. I prefer my amberís more hoppy but this is acceptable, I guess.

Frovigalning (2720) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2013
Sample at SBWF 2013. Sweet and malty smell. Mostly sweet and malty taste but also some hops. Full body. Malty and hoppy beer.

rangerred (863) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2013
12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear deep dark copper with a one finger white head. Decent head retention with some ok lacing. Aroma if of burnt toffee, caramel, and a touch of roasted malt. Some earth and tree bark but not much at all in the way of hops in the aroma. The taste is very heavy on the toffee and caramel. Fairly sweet with molassass and burnt sugar. Some biscuit and tree bark. Light bitterness and a sweet, sticky mouthfeel. Overall, not very impressed with this one. Too sweet and heavy and just not a lot of depth to the flavor. Not one Iíll pick up again.

ben4321 (3571) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 7/3/13

Aroma: The nose it full of sweet malts, with some dark fruits, caramel, toffee, and a bread
Appearance: It pours a mahagony color with a finger of beige head and some medium lace
Flavor: The flavor is heavy sweet with the same components as the nose, and minimal bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, it has a heavily sticky feel, and some lively carbonation
Overall Impression: This is an alright at best beer. It has heavy malts, but lacks balance. It isnít overly drinkable either. Itís a beer, and I see times where Iíd drink it, but it isnít a good beer.

Nate (3557) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2013
From bottle. Nice roasted malt and caramel sweetness. Twizzlers. Has a nice dunker Bock nose. Dark amber-brown clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts sweet with Twizzlers, caramel, roasted malt, and nutty character. Medium hop bitter finish with lingering sweet nutty after.
