Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is malts, candy, and blah. The look is clear, off white head, and orange in color. The taste is grains, sweet, and caramel.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 10, 2013
Hearty and earthy caramel aroma...the classic amber scent. Dark red brown color. Intensely sweet malt taste, and notably strong. Heavy, thick body one can gnaw on for a while. Not an American amber so much as a peaty mix of heavy English and Scotch ales.

16 ounce sample at New York SportsGrill in JFK Airport. The aroma has some roasted malt character and some light caramel and toffee notes. Mostly hazy amber-mahogany body with a small, creamy, light tan head. Starts with sweet, chewy slightly roasted malts. Chewy toffee and caramel are also present. Finishes lightly vinous. Super malty. Id call this a baby barleywine. Good stuff.

Draft. Bitter ale. Not much caramel. Interesting malt bill. Can't say I care too much for it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear dark brown with a foamy off white head. Notes of cocoa and berry with a subtle bready ness. Taste is maple cocoa and bittersweet cherries. Mouthfeel is slick and full. Aftertaste leaves a lingering bitter and tart finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to someone for sharing this at bu11zeyes 10,000th tasting in April 2012. Amber pour with a white head. The aroma has some caramel and toffee notes. The flavor is similar with caramel, toffee, spice and tea. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours orange/mahogany with a lasting head. Slightly sweet aroma. Smooth, creamy and sweet. This is certainly a winter sipping ale and at 7% should warm up those winter chills. Very well balanced flavor with a rounded finish.
