look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle. Freshness date of 11-08.
Pours a very dark amber color, almost brown. 2 finger tan head which doesn't last long, not a lot of lacing either.
Has a very interesting aroma. Malty, sweet, some nuttyness, caramel, hints of chocolate, hints of fruit (raison like), a bit of floral aromas from hops, some earthy grainy yeasty like aromas.
Taste is pretty good. Nice bit of maltiness to it. Tastes like roasted malts. Has a bit of spiciness. There is some hoppy bitterness that comes through. Mild sweetness . Some earthiness in the taste with a slight fruity flavor. A bit of bitterness on the finish which leaves a lingering bitterness on the back of the tongue. Mouthfeel is nice. Good drinkability too.
Overall pretty good. Will defiantly try again.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a murky brown color, not amber at all, almost muddy, with a quarter of a finger of white-head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the top of the beer in wispy clouds.
Aroma: Very malty and bready, with some pronounced sweet aromas of honey and toffee.
Taste: Malty up front, quickly followed by some pronounced but not overpowering hoppy bitterness. There’s practically no sweetness present, just a lot of pleasant hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.5%, there’s no presence of alcohol on the palate.
Overall: This is a pretty solid amber ale, and unique to other ambers that I’ve had (Fat Tire, Honker Ale, etc.) in that it’s much more hop forward that I’m used to, but in a very tasty way. I’d certainly have it again.
