Misc.: Best by Dec. 15, 2013
Poured a dark reddish brown somewhat clear color with two fingers of khaki tan head. Decent amount of even circular lacing along the sides of the glass. Above average retention.
Smelled roasted coffee malts, espresso, dark chocolate, burnt toast, caramel and toffee. Coffee really dominates.
Tasted similar to the nose. Initially got roasty coffee malts, espresso, coffee beans, roasty nuts, toast, toffee and caramel. More like a porter than an amber in my opinion.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Smooth finish.
A pretty decent beer really. Beer Advocate has it as an American Amber/Red Ale, but I see it more as a porter.
