12 oz brown bottle - bottled 12/19/13 printed on the shoulder of the bottle

Lakefront Bridge Burner a dark red amber color that produced a small 1/4-finger off-white rocky head. The head dissipated quickly to a ring of bubbly foam in my snifter. The nose is dominated by hops, floral and pine are also present. Upfront the taste is dominated by sweet caramel with brown sugar and dark fruits. Hops follow to provide a balance and a dry slightly bitter aftertaste. Alcohol produced a nice warming finish. Mouth feel is medium-full and slightly sticky with moderate carbonation.

Bridge Burner is a flavorful and drinkable strong ale. I'll sure have another!

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Starting temperature of about 45F but improved with warming.

Poured dark reddish-brown with a fine, creamy tan head than left exceptional lacing.

Aroma: surprisingly hoppy: More like an APA than an "amber ale". A solid mix of malts is also present. Hints of toffee, white pepper and other spices.

Flavor: about as hoppy as a typical APA, but with a robust medium- and dark-roasted malt base. Well-balanced and mildly spicy (hops).

Feel: light heat from the higher ABV but relatively smooth and soft. Medium+ body.

O: a well-crafted and tasty Imperial BPA (Brown Pale Ale).
