Different sort of amber. Nutty, grainy, smoky, a bit of caramel. Plenty of body. Spotty lacing, Clear orange brown. Nose is mostly chocolate malt or something of that kin. Finish is dry and hoppy, Kills the sweet nicely. Decent, not great. RRistow12 (868) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours a deep mahogany red with slightly off white head. Tons of lacing. Aroma is citrus, spices, caramel. Taste is moderate sweetness with mild bitterness. Flavors of citrus, caramel, a little dark fruits, some nuttiness. Pretty complex. Definitely a solid amber.

Poured a deep, dark brown with a hint of red much like birch beer with a slight off white head.......aroma of citrusy hops, caramel maltiness......taste is clean with a touch of caramel, crisp, medium mouthfeel, with a sweet and bittered finish. Quite nice for an amber, which is not my favorite grain, but well done. PhilJackson80 (531) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 14, 2015

On tap at Barcade Brooklyn. Nice russet pour. Dry IPA, some coffee, good hops. Don’t see what is so Valentine’s Day about it (having this on the day) but it’s good.

Flavour is grapefruit, pine resin, tropical fruit, roasted malts, chile chocolate, and pepper on the finish. drjay44 (3712) - Salida, Colorado, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, light beige head over a clear, reddish amber (SRM 18) body.....nose is toffee/caramel, from toasted malts, pine resin, balanced.....taste is slightly sweet, toffee/caramel notes, light dried fruits, pine, resin, citrus peel, lingering hop, roasted malt bitterness, balanced......mouth feel, body medium, slightly sticky, mild alcohol, carbonation makes a creamy sensation. This is a well balanced, wonderfully complex beer, Malts add sweetness, toffee/caramel notes, hints of dried fruits, hops balance back with typical American tones. BJCP 8/3/15/4/8
