Ambergeddon was a focal point in a recent trade with BYOFB, so many thanks to him for helping me get a try at a great beer.

It's beautifully creamy on the pour, as a brown head is churned up thickly and settles about 2 fingers tall, then refuses to go anywhere for awhile. The only thing better would be if the head had remained the entire time, though it sticks around for some time. The brew itself is a thick brown with orange hues, and it's no joke that this is an unfiltered beer. Fantastic lacing is left in clumps.
The aroma explodes out the bottle very nicely but, interestingly, softens after that. Bitter hops balance with enough sweet malts to balance, floral and herbal in the hops but with a distinct citrus and touch of tropical fruits as well against a caramel malts presence with some biscuit beside.
The flavor is outstanding, and I'm glad I got two bottles; both were dated the same but one, apparently, was slightly off. The first was not as hoppy as I expected with a bit of a briny finish. In the second bottle, I got all that I expected and no brine at all. All the same herbal, floral, citrus and tropical fruits hop flavor comes out with an additional grassiness and balances with the same caramel malts with light grains undertones and the biscuit turning a little more like fresh dough. The hops are the key, though, and the complexity is outstanding, especially for something with such good balance.
The mouthfeel is smooth and silky, not neglecting crispness but never losing its creamy heft, with a nice depth. The body is medium and it's semi-dry.
I'm glad I got to try this one. The hype is deserved.
