4.63/5 rDev +10%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
On tap poured into an 8oz sniffer glass, perfect.
Pours a dark chocolaty black with large tan head that the bartender kindly allowed to flow off when filling this smallish glass.
Smell of roasty malts and bittersweet chocolate with good hop aroma floated in there.
Tastes of toasty bittersweet chocolate malts, with pine and fruity hops present in the background. Nice bitter blends with the toast through finish. Nicely balanced!
Very smooth and velvety mouth feel with perfect carbonation.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into the MBC ale glass
A: dark ruddy color with an ecru head that compacts from a finger to a half finger, with soapy lacing the whole time. Creamy tight carbo. slightly hazy, not hazy but not clear.
S: light quad notes. figs raisins and peppery yeast and breadiness. Hops are mild, piney and welcome.
T: Some malty tea notes with sweet dark fruit. The bitterness causes a sharp counterpoint mid-quaff. spicy yeast notes are mild.
M: Creamy medium-full body and nice velvety mouthfeel. Malt shines on finish with a slightly phenolic finish. Finish is neither dry nor cloying.
O: Another great showing from Maine Beer Company.

My first ever BA review (YAY!) It certainly took me long enough to get around to this, now I'm going to have to retry all of the 300+ different beers I have drank so I can take some notes on them!
Appearance- Pours very well with a beautiful reddish color and a well formed head atop the brew.
Smell- Doesn't smell like much til it warms up. Maltiness with a hint of apples. Not offensive but not great either.
Taste- Initial taste of bready malts and nuttiness. Very long finish for an amber, loads of earthy bitterness. I would rate it higher but there is a slight astringency going on here that keeps it behind the truly elite Ambers out there.
Mouthfeel- Very solid. Slightly creamy and highly carbonated to the point where I can feel the bubbles dancing on my tongue.
Overall pretty good, but certainly not worth the $7.99 I paid for a 16.9 oz bottle when I can get a sixer of Troegs Hopback for $10.
