This isnt your average amber ale. We appreciate the time you took in selecting this fine beer. We are confident you will enjoy every drop. Seriously, one sip is probably not going to be cause for alarm, but by the time you finish this bottle you may never be able to enjoy a regular run-of-the-mill beer again. Immense malt body will take your palate hostage; its balanced hop bitterness will write your taste buds a ransom note. It may sneak into your house, rearrange your living room furniture, shave your cat, and change the message on your voicemail while you sleep. You will be forever changed. Revenge is a draft best served cold.

Amber in color. Lots of toffee and caramel in the nose and flavor with hints of chocolate malt and roast. Good.

On tap @ EJ Phair - Concord. Ruby colored beer with a small off-white head. Big time sweetness of table sugar, caramel, and toffee. Light pine hop character to go with it. Has some fruity ester qualities to it as well. Maybe a light nuttiness to the flavor? Its just very sweet and intensely sugary for me. Not a fan.

Draft. Red/orange color small head. Sweet hops, citrus and toasted almond aroma. Medium body with a long dry nutty finish. I wouldnt say its an amazing Belgian Strong, it feels more like a really nice hoppy brown. Either way its definitely pintworthy.

A decent red, but something weird about it. Pours a great amber color with a tan head. Smells fruity. Taste is fruity too, but a strange aftertaste. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A - Served a clear copper-red color with a thin layer of white head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some good lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of rich tasted caramel malts with some light dark fruit sweetness and a hint of booze. T - Starts off with sweet rich caramel malts with a touch of spice. Through the middle some more malt flavor comes through with a bit of hop and some light booze. The finish is a mix of rich malts with some light spice and a touch of booze. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a mellowing warming and a sweet finish. D - Very drinkable. Pretty good balance of flavors but just maybe a touch thin bodied.

Glad to see E.J. Phair brewing again, although they have have been hit or miss in the past. This had a strong and clean malt, muted hop flavor but overly bitter. Still worked out okay, but not quite there.

Only house beer on tap, guess theyre not brewing until November probably. Clear golden with a fluffy white head. Good strong fruity and grainy aroma and taste with a crisp finish.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark copper with a sllight off-white head. Aroma is very mild and indistinct. Flavor is smooth darkly roasted caramel. Except for a mild fruitiness it hasnt got all that much flavor and is something of a clone of Newcastle Brown, though better. It does drink really well. Ends more fruity than anything. Quite smooth.
