Wow, I really liked this one! He'Brew's on to something here with this mix of pomegranate with amber ale. It blends quite nicely.
A - Looks awesome! Beautiful orange brown body with a foamy medium thick head. Some good staying power and lacing.
S - Not very strong. Slight citrusy sweet malty scents. A sense the scent of pomegranate only just a little.
T - I love amber ales and this has a great style base to start with, but then they mixed in just the right amount of sweet pomegranate flavor to give it just that extra added tasty boost. Fantastic!
M - Malty flavors and a small amount of carbonation spread about the tongue fairly fully.
D - I could drink this sucker all day...although its sweetness would make it more suited to an after-meal, dessert type of ale. And some may find the sweetness too much, but not me!

Pours a dark copper with blonde highlights into my glass. Lots of head and lacing.
Upon opening the bottle, the aromas made an immediate impact upon my olfactory gland. Wheat, caramel and a hell of a hop bill. Pomegranate juice also in nose.
Molasses, caramel, toasted bread and a touch of pomegranate make up the taste of this excellent beer. The hops don't have a chance due to the excellent malt bill.
I have mixed thoughts about the mouthfeel. It's "sour" and that could be the pom juice in play. Some caramel, etc lingering though.
Not a bad choice for the price, which is much lower than their other high ABV offerings. Just not impressive enough to warrant a second round.
