This had a really dark red color with a large foamy head. The smell is nutty and somewhat spicy but those flavors don't come out as much in the taste. This beer simply has great balance. There seemed to be a hop bitterness right at the start. But there was a good amount of sweet caramel taste and a toasted biscuit base to keep the bitterness in check. The finish has more hoppiness but it's more flavorful and less bitter and it lingers for quite some time. The flavors mix really well but aren't the smoothest. Still I drank the bomber in record time and I feel like I could drink quite a few more. Very drinkable.

3.7/5 rDev -3.9%

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.
