Aroma is rich sweet malts, caramel, fig, and slight hickory. Taste is a fairly thick chewy chocolate, caramel and molasses. Appearance a clear dark amber with a medium fluffy head that retains very well. NeilinSeattle (32) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2016
The aroma teases but the body doesn’t quite deliver. Still a good example of an amber ale, currently one of the best in Seattle.

Sweet and malty. Very light on the juniper. The finish is a little metallic but still smooth. Pretty good overall. stevoj (5045) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 29, 2015
Growler from Albertsons. Seeing a wide variety of scores here, and I’ll go with the downside, average at best, with a flat metallic finish. Might be closer to a brown ale than an amber, but that wouldn’t improve any scores.... MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
Yech. This had a bitter and absolutely unappealing taste. Heavy malts and syrup with some burnt notes and berries. newtabularasa (2) - - OCT 6, 2015 does not count
Complex, delicious, no off flavors at all. Good mouthfeel, I kept taking extra ’tastes’ because it was soo good. One of my favorites! brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 27, 2015
On tap @ Odin Tap Room. Dark amber colored beer with off-white foam. Lots of caramel malt and herbal qualities. A touch of roast, dark cocoa, and toasted bread. Some leafy floral and earthy hop character as well. Light bitterness to the flavor. Sort of a cereal sweetness as it sits for a bit.
