Growler filled from The Whip In in Austin.

The beer pours a reddish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of toffee and cocoa. The aroma is fairly sweet and is definitely all about the malt.

The flavor is more complex than the aroma. I get a lot of cocoa and toffee notes, but I also get a little bit of dark fruit and cherry notes. There is also something that resembles vanilla in the flavor which goes very well with the other flavors.

Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This is a really nice looking beer. Beautiful, thick, creamy head that sticks around a while, then laces the glass. I wanted to be a little clearer, but the color is right on.

I'm getting floral hops and some roastiness in the nose. Tastes like slight caramel with some bittering that doesn't over power. Quite roasty. The body is excellent. The malts stick to the roof of my mouth.

This is a very nice beer. Feels much hardier than most Ambers. Also, with more flavor than most.
