Enjoyed on tap the night before a big climb. A delicious parting with civilization for a couple days. I love Amicas.

Pours a transparent dark brown with mahogany hues. No head or lacing, but beautiful color.

Moderate strength aromas: caramel malts, nuts, tobacco; hints of chocolate and coffee. Some butterscotch as well.

Tastes extremely nutty with quite a bit of butterscotch. Otherwise tastes like it smells, but finishes crisp with a cola-like flavor. Delicious.

Medium-heavy body with ever so slightly too much carbonation. Light resins stick to the palate. No alcohol sensations.

Yet another delicious beer from Amicas. Who'd have thunk you could find such great beer in bumblef^%$ CO?
