From an undated 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on July 9, 2012. It pours a medium to dark amber that could also be classified as golden bronze with a smallish head that fades after a few moments. The aroma oozes sweetness with dark malts, nuts, and a low profile hop ester. The body is medium and smooth. The taste is of sweet caramel upfront with a low to medium bitterness taking up the tail. The bitterness seems to evolve as the beer warms. This was an easy to drink, likable beer.

Poured from bottle into tulip. Pours a copper amber color with a foamy head, dissapears quick with some lacing.
Really nice malty dried fruit aromas...almost "bock" like. Taste is just like it smells..malty, dried fruit and bock flavors. Its actually really nice.
Heavy mouthfeel, smooth, and good aftertaste. Slightly macro tease, but overall a nice brew.
