22 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottled on July 13th. A little old but hopefully not past its prime. A solid inch of lumpy head formation slowly dissipates. Deep amber color. Reminds me of bourbon. Light carbonation. Good lacing. Very nice smell. Light, fruity hops. I don't know if I would call it fresh but definitely lively. The must have been amazing when it was younger. Rich malt notes of molasses and maple syrup lie just below the hoppyness. Fairly light body but with a robust texture. A smooth sip with an interesting finish. Hoppy enough so that when the malt comes through you get hints of coffee and dark chocolate and not just sweet. It reminds me a little bit of a dubbel in that respect. Very quaffable for such a big beer. I will restate my original sentiment: the must have been amazing fresh! It has been years since I have had this and will try to make it a point to pick one up next year as soon as they hit the shelf.

Gotta love the label graphic - nicely done
Looks like this was bottled about April 23rd 2013, so it's got a lot of age on it now! Bought at the end of last September and mistakenly aged. That might explain why it came across as more of an ESB than an American amber.
Poured from the 22 oz. bomber into a Samuel Adams nonick.
a: Nearly clear dark amber/copper with an inch plus offwhite head which receded to rocky surface foam and dense lacing.
s: Mild caramel malt.
t; First impression is its pleasing silky smoothness, followed by a nice caramel malt and hops balance. Sweet to dry finish. Its 8.65% ABV is well concealed.
m: Medium, silky smooth.
o: A very enjoyable and satisfying ESB-style ale, highly sippable and savory in texture and overall taste. I'd buy this again anytime of year. However I'll need to try a much fresher bottle to confirm this.
Serving type: growler
