3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle. Pours hazy brown with a humongous head. This bottle is way overcarbonated, probably by mistake. Aromas are fruity yeast esters, slight wine flavors, and caramel. Flavors are white wine, plum, date, raisin, brown sugar and bready notes. Highly carbonated, lively mouthfeel. Even though this bottle is mistakenly over carbonated, it still has some enjoyable flavors. I’ll have to try this one again.
Appearance: Medium to darker brown. Somewhat clear.
Nose: Sweeter caramel malts with hints of nuttiness.
Taste: Sweeter roasted malts. Touch bitters. Touch roasted nuts.
Body: medium to thinner.
Parting thoughts: Rather unremarkable beer. I don’t get the name at all for an amber.

Sampled at RBSG 2016. Poured brown with a light tan head. Nose of roasted malts. Medium body. Flavor is is grainy with some light hops and a light bitter and somewhat vegetable finish. Decent. Izzyboy7 (3) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 14, 2016 does not count
Ok dark beer, but a bit thin & slightly metallic. With so many powerful deep darks out there, this one is simply a middle of the pack contender. Wish it had more of the flavor accents instead of the hoppy ones. I’ll keep an eye on Elevator though. Ferris (17153) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
