22 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau glass. Purchased at the Warren Store on 11/1. Consumed on 11/17. Written from notes.
A - Color of tea or dark plum. Full finger of of light beige head. Quickly dissipates. Distinct lines of carbonation. Splotchy lacing. No transparency. First pour no sediment. Second pour white heavy sediment which actually changed complection of beer to a muddy brown color. Would have given beer at least a 4.5 in appearance off first pour...
S - Midly fragrant. Tea and dark fruit.
T - Black tea, lemon, sour cherry/dark fruit, and nutmeg. Well balanced malt backbone. A nice bitter black tea/sour cherry finish.
M - Crisp and refreshing and tingle throughout mouth. Light bodied and perfect for style.
O - Would have received higher score if not for the heavy sludge which changed complexion of beer during last pour.

@ Prohibition Pig
Mostly clear deep chestnut color with a little creaminess on top that shrinks to a patchy ring. Moderately hoppy nose...sort of dark and piney with a bit of tea, nuts, and malt to balance. Nice, balanced hoppy flavor: zesty, juicy citrus, increasing pine needle bitterness, some caramel malt mixes well with the "darker" hop character. Medium bodied and solidly bitter. I like this more and more as I drink it...

Big thanks to Steve for sending this bottle my way. Served in a SAVOR wine glass.
Pours a dark reddish-copper color with a thin off-white head and a bit of lacing. The nose carries some amber and brown malt. Overall, quite malty for an amber. Some piney and resinous hops come along, plus a bit of citrus. Flavor loses those hops, and is a bit earthy and malty all at once. Not too much sweetness; more generic malt flavor. Medium body with moderate bitterness through the finish. A bit disappointing for a Lawson's brew.
