This poured a murky amber / brown, with a light tan head that diminished quickly. Slight alcohol aroma in the nose, mostly overshadowed by the malt aroma. Malty, sweet, with a slight alcohol flavor....not sure of the ABV, but i would imagine 7%? Actually rather smooth palate, and a nice overall brew. Seems much closer to a English Strong Ale to me, much heavier than a normal amber. Probably hard to find outside Oregon, but worth a try.

Has Dry Stout-like characteristics, but far far more rich and slightly sweet and hearty than other examples of that style I have had (I should mention I’m not a big Dry Stout fan). A deliciously oaky, malty, slightly sweet...ummm...stout. Interacts strangely with various foods. I made the mistake of having my second sample after some Swiss cheese, and I got the funkiest chemical interactions on my tongue I’ve had in a really long time. Bizarre. But my second favorite beer from a great small brewery. ANd I liked calling them on the phone and getting the home number of the brewers. That was cool, and I was nervous!

Tap @ brewpub. A dark red tinted brown. A warm malty beer that cloys with dark cherry.
