Thanks to Momar42 for the bottle! 12 oz poured into a pint glass.
A: Pours a tawny copper color with good clarity, but quite a few yeast particles. The head is a one finger light mocha shade with decent enough retention.
S: Very caramel forward, almost to the point where it seemingly comes across as being chocolaty. Underneath the maltiness lies some fruity esters. A likable aroma, but not an amazing one.
T: Again, it's quite malty, with an almost chocolaty flavor profile at times. The caramel/chocolate maltiness gives way to a very plummy finish. Spots of milky lactose appear at times. It's not really complex, but it's surprisingly savorable for something that's so seemingly middle-of-the-road.
M: Not as drinkable as I'd like from a lower gravity selection - but on the opposite side of the coin, it's quite decadent feeling considering how 'small' it is. In layman's terms, it has a fairly heavy body. The carbonation is quite low for the style, which is honestly kind of refreshing in my mind.
O: I hear that this can be found in quite a few supermarkets in the West. All that does is make me wish I could find this in any ordinary gas station liquor store - I'd sure as shit pick this up over Fat Tire any day of the week.

This particular brew has a magnificent dark amber appearance, though little or no head. The amber has a mild, sweet aroma, nothing special. The taste was disappointing for me quite watery in both mouthfeel and taste. Somewhat sweet at first, hints of citrus and carmel then fades to an okay alcoholic taste. I was expecting a bit more from this beer- I do enjoy my amber ales. I will finish this bottle but will not go back for seconds.
I would recommend to a girl.
