Bottle. Pour is dark copper/tan with a large bubbly off-white head. Notes of pine resin, caramel sauce, semi-sweet fruit, and earth. Finish is very sweet but balanced nicely by the hop bitterness. Big flavor and mouthfeel for an amber ale.

kassner (1630) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Well the color has moved to a light cola. The head is frothy and asmall amount of lacing but the beer was still a hopped full bodied beer. It has a small bitter note at the end but otherwise still great.

hershiser2 (2795) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2017
Bomber from Total Wine, West Richmond. Pours hazy amber-brown with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops, dark fruit, plastic, caramel. Flavor is dark fruit, caramel, pine, citrus peel, a bit doughy. I gotta say, not a huge fan.

MelvinKalksma (1413) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017

Aroma:
Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, orange, pine, bread, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque red/brown beer with a medium beige head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, orange and pine; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread, hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Such a shame that the flavour only matches that beautiful aroma for a couple of seconds. Could have used more bitter hopping I presume.

Brewhemia (297) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2016
Nice light nut brown/red color with off white head. Looks good. Lots of malty aroma (bread, cookie dough, caramel) and some ripe fruit aroma (raisins, dates) plus some hoppy grassiness. The taste is very malty flavorful and vinous. Lots of caramel, raisin and light toast notes. Finish is bitter, has grass notes, is lightly acidic, vinous and has some alcohol burn. Nice complexity. Had expected more hoppiness.
