3.65/5 rDev -0.5%
Served in a bottle at Cork City in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a clear garnet red to brown in color with very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall beige creamy head that slowly reduces to a thick layer covering the entire surface of the beer. Moderate lacing is observed.
S: This beer has a very light and almost subtle aroma, dark malts with some light sweetness are present.
T: The beer has some dark malts and some caramel malts with light sweetness. There are also some toffee sweet notes as well along with a light amount of nuttiness.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Very easy to drink and very sessionable (though I suppose that is the goal for the style). This is definitely a light flavored but enjoyable beer that could be drank all night long.

Bottle at Cork City, Hoboken, NJ
A: The beer is clear and very dark amber in color with a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high dense foamy off white head that died down but left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: There are light aromas of dark malts in the nose. Some sweetness becomes noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of nuts with a bit of sweetness and notes of toffee.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and very sessionable; I would have no problem drinking this all night long.

Pours a brilliantly clear bright tawny brown color with a 1 finger bright white head. Big malty nose of caramel and toffee with touches of chocolate. On the heavier side of a light body with incredible briskness. Body holds together all the way through with good carbonation a punch of caramel malt character. Some toffee on the sides of the mouth, generally sweet but a bit of charcoal on the back along with the right amount of hop character gives this beer impeccable balance. This beer holds true to its name, definitely one you can go a few rounds with and one I wouldn't mind doing it with either. The perfect balance of flavor and drinkability.

Reviewed from memory from yesterday.
A: Dark copper with off-white head. Not much in the way of lacing.
S: Weak apricot and toasted dark malts. Slight stale odor.
T: Oh my. Fruit sugars and burned malt; apricot. Complex, but not in a good way. I like hops in all my beers, and this one is practically a malt liquor.
M: Syrupy yet thin. Undercarbonated MO, but finishes with some foam.
O: Not very good. Other reviews speak highly of it, but I found it to be dull and unsatisfying.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A very aggressive light caramel/tan head is made, very styrofoamy looking and settling quite quickly.
Nose is mostly just yeast, a bit estery smelling and sticky almost sour malt. After sometime some sweetness comes out which makes it a bit more enjoyable, kind of a fruity marmalade a bit and apricot.
A nice slightly made for the course palate feel, light rolling malts, but a nice pectin and apricot fruit behind this. Light bodied fruit tasting and almost apricot peach mixing with a good malt backbone.
Overall for a mild, pretty pleasant. Lacking a little bit in flavor and feel, but drinkable and enjoyable.
