Bottle thanks to BrewDad. This is one hell of an amber ale. Pours a dark red/brown color with a medium light beige head. The aroma is rich malts, dusty and fruity notes. Some rich caramel also. The flavor reminds me of some nice English beers; fruity and musty malts, somewhat dry and very flavorful. Loads of rich caramel also. Very nice. I could drink a ton of this.

On Tap at Maritime Pacific Seattle. Pours out a dark brown topped with a off white head. Aroma of rich malts and a good mix of hops. Tast of the malts again and again. A nice little sweetness goes well with the hops.

nuplastikk (5911) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 22, 2008
12oz bottle. Dark amber-brown color. Medium bodied, similar to a dunkel with a little more hop balance. Lots of caramel malt flavors. Pretty good for a session dark ale, but a little thin and watery.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 1, 2008
On tap @ the brewpub. Pours brown with amber highlights and lasting thin tan head. The aroma is nutty and caramel along with malt roastiness. The taste is roasty malts mixing with yummy caramel and a bit of dark fruitiness. It then becomes nutty with mildly drying roasted maltiness and more caramel goodness into the finish. Way in the background is a very complimentary pin hop note. This is tasty.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours really dark for an amber, an opaque brown that absorbs light. Leaves a thin tannish head with good lacing. Aroma of deep malt with a nice bitter taste. Solid finish, but nothing in particular stands out.
