A - Dark amber pour with a tan foam head. Active carbonation. Lacing is rings on the glass.

S - Scents of caramel and rich malt.

T - Rich malty beer that has some sweetness but is essentially a malt bomb.

M - Rich beer that finishes with a raspy feel. Perfect pair with BBQ. Strong flavors stay in the palate.

O - I'd have this again. Surprised how good this is was. A solid amber from a brewery that for some reason I haven't had enough from as of yet.

Pours a murky dark orange-brown with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, caramel, citrus zest, and alcohol aromas. Taste is much the same with brown sugar and candied citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a nice malt and candied citrus zest combination going on all around.
