From a bottle, pours a deep amber with a dense khaki head. Malt-forward with caramel and toffee flavors. There is OK carbonation and mouth-feel has an indistinct syrupiness. Decent, but expected more for the price.

The best looking beer I have ever seen. It's young Pam Grier levels of amazing beauty. The smell is.... not bad but hey at least I didn't make a weakest link joke. Tastes sweet and malty and its smooth too yeah and it's smooth too.

Pours clear, caramel in color, with 1/2 inch head. Taste is caramel, toasted malt, with light chocolate and smokey notes. Smooth and light for the style. Really enjoyable and way better than their lager.

Clear dark brown with three fingers of tan head. Drops to a ring of foam about the ten minute mark. Spots of lace.
Smell is pretty muted. I would say dark brown bread.
Taste is sweet plums molasses dark cherries and brown bread. There is a hop presence but in is mostly at the end.
Hops are herbal mostly.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. You can renew the head with just a swirl of the glass. Finish is quite light and mostly sweet.
Overall a very tasty beer that I suspect my bottle was fairly old. I will track down a fresh version to try to get a bit more hop flavor.
