2.3/5  rDev -38.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a snifter on 7/15/12

Sunburnt copper; deep in color. One and a half finger head dissipates to a soapy layer over half the beer and a thinner skim over the other half. There are a few drippings of lace.

The aroma is deeply malty and smells primarily like spiced bread. The aroma calls to mind some of those used in the the winter time ales. Hops are timid - earthy and herbal. The flavor is spicy too; maybe not as much as the aroma. It tastes tinny, which makes for a bad combination with the herbal hops. Dry bread. Maybe a hint of piney hop resin. The feel is somewhere between thin and medium and is a tad watery despite some granular undercurrents. Carbonation is sufficiently puffy.

Overall, this one is drinkable, but it doesn't cut it for me. While not entirely bad, too much about the beer screams "hollow." It's been a long time since I've had one. I reckon it'll be a long time before I have another.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

As the label proclaims this has a rich copper hue and a stiff thick head of off white foam. There's a large number of carbonation bubbles that course through the body that weakens the appearance.

The nose is a malt bomb. Molasses, maple, tea leaves, even prune, date and raisin all come to the surface.

The flavor reminds me of figs, with sorghum and caramel malt. I get a bit of molasses and maple with a back of pecans.

The feel is quite thick, very smooth with a bitter after taste.

Very unorthodox in its approach this copper ale is nicely diverse and quite flavorful.
