Pours a nice copper amber with a creamy off-white, long lasting head. Only a little lacing left on the pint glass. Aroma is of tosted malts and biscuity heaviness. A grassy hoppines is also noted. Flavor is somewhat the same: biscuits and toasted malts. Hoppy bitterness is kept to a minimum, but still can be detected in the background. Aftertaste is heavy, and lingers for a while. Mouthfeel is oily and slick, but clean and the carbonation leaves a nice bite on my tongue. Overall, this brew would be great with a spicy gumbo or stew, but I would rather have a big DIPA for an accompaniment instead.

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.
