This beer is a weird one. My first 5 or 6 times drinking this I thought it was the best beer in the world. I loved the toasty caramel taste and smell. I also really thought it had a good color to it. What makes it weird is it got old to me. The taste got old. The smell got old. I hardly drink this anymore, but I will have it every now and then. Mostly will drink it during winter. For people just starting to get into craft beers this is a good one to start with, but it may get old to drink after a while.

I had this on a freezing winter night this past year. I heard rave reviews of it and saw countless people buying pitchers at my local wing joint and decided to give it a try. It was slightly black in appearance and tasted like gasoline. I don't feel that I received a good batch or something else was wrong with it because it didn't look the same as when i had seen it in the past. I'd be willing to give it another go if it was offered to me.

A - Clear light yellow (not amber...?) with a thin fizzy half a finger of white head, no lacing.
S - Big floury wheat and biscuit malt aroma, a little yeasty.
T - Unique in flavor, has a little of that belgian yeast trait, biscuit dough, has a little burnt caramel flavor too.
M - Just ok, a little watery.
O - This is not really an amber ale at all, I'm not sure where you'd place it, but its lame. Though, everyone's had it, and people act like its a big deal to drink.
