Presentation: On tap.

Appearance: Tawny, ruby with a thin lace.

Smell: Malty. Caramel, fruit and clean herbal hop aromas.

Taste: Hoppy upfront with a clean, rind-like bitterness (slightly spicy). Bitty unsweetened chocolate flavour with a fig sweetness, followed by more chocolate. Bitter sweet finish.

Notes: Another classic micro brewed Amber.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

Served with a minimal head, but the bubbles remain throughout the tasting. Some spots for lace. The liquid is brown with light passing through easily. Appears hazy.

Smells of brown sugar and crystal malt. No hop.

Lots of caramel up front, but it's not overly sweet. Good hop kick in the swallow, but it's not overly bitter. In all, a pretty nice blend. Rich body and below average carbonation. Short aftertaste--lightly sweet.

Poured on-tap at the brewpub and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, deep, amber-copper color with a clingy, filmy, off-white head. Nose of caramel, toffee, nut, and hints of mocha, also with a subtle roasting. Very rich nose. Flavors of rich and sweet forward, with caramel roast and toffee once again present. Light bodied, keeping the sweetness in check. More of the nut and mocha sweetness into the aftertaste. Slick, smooth finish. Solid brew.
