This Imperial Amber Ale stands on its own, but was designed to complement the aroma of a fine cigar. A combination of German Vienna and American 2-Row malts provide a notable backbone and an initial flavor reminiscent of vanilla. The beer is then dry-hopped twice to finish with an herbal character.

Taproom draft. Ruby red in color poured with a thin off-white lace ring. The aroma is muted with some herbal and caramel notes in the taste. Moderately bitter. A little thick on the tongue.

snoworsummer (4810) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear ruby copper with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like dried fruits, booze, cherry, and woody malt. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like dried fruits, cherry, booze, and woody malt.

Suttree (6106) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2016
Reddish brown, thin beige foam. Smells like caramel, and a bit boozy. Very heavy, rich mouthfeel. Taste is sweet, lots of caramel and toffee, then some rum, boozy notes. Woody, hoppy finish.

12 oz. Mostly clear copper with a lasting thin film of foam. Nose is sourish tangerine, earthy toffee and dark bread. Flavors are the same mix with some green herb and toasted grain on the finish. Medium-plus body has smooth, near-medium carbonation and seems to have a nod to some peat-smoked malts. I’m not a cigar smoker, but I feel as though I should be after this one.

From a 13 oz bottle poured at home. Pours a cloudy amber with an ecru head. Nutty aroma. Malty flavors. Bitter finish.

drowland (7887) - Georgia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
1/30/15. Amber pour, small khaki head, mild lacing. Caramel on the aroma, a biscuit aspect, that’s about it. The flavor follows suit, sweet caramel and bread, a touch of astringent bitterness coming through. Meh.

Itzjerm (2320) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Great aroma for an amber. Nice hoppy smokey aroma. Nice hoppy taste with the aroma. Clear to cloudy with a thin head. Sweet on the tongue very balanced. Nice beer.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Bottle. Poured amber with a frothy off-white head that has some lasting and left good lace. Floral aroma. The flavor found floral hops and a toasted malt backing. Medium body, smooth, and a medium bitterness.

Very bitter, but nice citrusy finish. Imperial Amber ale is something I can compare, but I enjoyed this brew.
