As I first poured this ale into my pint glass, I was under the impression this was going to be a forgettable beer. I took a swig, and as I set down the glass on the desk, I remember thinking my suspicions were confirmed. The taste started bitter, as you would expect any ale to deliver (a little too bitter, if I am to be honest). But, as I continued working at my desk, my taste buds would not let me forget the lingering bitterness that gave way to a sweet finish. I found myself reaching for the glass, taking another sip. As this deep red ale hit my tongue a second time, I realize that this beer holds a quaint little secret! Once again, I set the glass down on the desk, but, unlike the first time, I have a new respect for this delicious ale. Paying more attention to the flavor this time, I realize that this brew has a creamy, sweet caramel flavor, with a very nice lingering fruity undertone - well balanced with a mild bitterness. By the time I finish the glass, this "forgettable" beer has me craving another. Quite a pleasant surprise, I will not soon be forgetting this premium ale!

My friend brought this back from the
A. Dark Amber, two finger head
S. Dark fruit, raisin, prune, coco, earthy smell
T. First sweet toffee, into malty, dark fruit, nice malt, grain aftertaste
M. Crisp mouthfeel, refreshing
O. Fresh, I guess is the way to go with this one, my ratings are based on a fresh beer from brewery few days old. Aren't they always better that way!
