I just had one of these at the Rogue in South Beach, Newport. Nice dark amber color with a lingering head and pretty good lace. The aroma was mild with just a touch of caramel. Tastewise there was a good hop bite and a nice blend of hop flavor with a bit of coffee. The taste was smooth and I was expecting a mellow finish so I was a little surprised by the astringent to slightly sour finish. It did go well with the recommended ribs though.
Serving type: on-tap

I absolutely love the color of this amber with its bright brassy highlights and sturdy hue. It loses points, though, with an unimpressive head of this thin fleeting fizz and a ton of clinging carbonation bubbles.
The nose is malty, nutty, maybe pecans and a bit of grain. There's hints of roast and a bit of tea leaf.
The flavors are more roasted, more nutty, and filled with pecans. The roasted flavor is dry and the malts are filled with barley, tea leaf and grain.
The feel is exceptionally dry but also thin and watery.
This is a good example of the style with all the profile pieces I want in an Amber. My only regret, and it's small, is that the thin watery feel doesn't allow the flavor to truly blossom.
