Dark hazy amber. Beautiful. Fizzy and crisp. Molasses. Spicy. Tastes like they used Belgian yeast because it tastes like it is spicy from hops at first, but then u can tell its from the yeast.

Pretty solid clean-cut amber, not too bitter, could use a bit more cara malt possibly for chewy mouthfeel. Bottle from trader joes

Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is floral, caramel, nuts. Flavor is roasted caramel, nuts... slightly sweet, pretty good. Surprisingly better than I envisioned. ruigo (3088) - PORTUGAL - JUL 18, 2017

Idiosynkrasie (7837) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2017
355ml bottle. Clear, dark amber colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Floral-herbal-spicy hoppy aroma, hints of menthol and peppermint, minimally chococlately, malty background with a chocolate cookie touch. Taste delivers an identical combination of flavours with an additional touch of lemon in the hop profile. tricksta_p (5009) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2017
Bottle from a supermarket in Oregon. Aroma is sturdy caramel malts, notes of toffee and ripe fruits with a hint of hops. Flavour is almost medium sweet and moderate to medium bitter. Body is medium. Agreeable American Amber with a bittersweet finish. DavidWoodruff (630) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 26, 2017
Amber leaning towards brown with a thin cream colored head. Toasty malt aroma. Flavor is nutty - raw almond, with a nice rounded malt sweetness. Some balancing bitterness as it finishes. All around pleasant if perhaps noncommittal. I remember the good old days when there was just a happy hint of diacetyl. scoth (690) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 20, 2017
Pours clear amber with a thin beige head, low retention. Aromas of toffee, toast, nuts, with a light earthy hop note. Medium body, smooth, moderate carbonation. Lightly sweet, a hint of tartness, and a moderately bitter finish. Enjoyably
bitter and nutty, but I’m not usually a fan of the style and this brew doesn’t do anything to change that. biermanny (1) - - JAN 6, 2017 does not count
great example of a good full bodied ale, good amber appearance and aromas when poured. Nice on the palate with a mild hoppy taste
