Notes taken from 09/21/14

Another big thanks to Doppelbockulus for this tasty extra!

A: Reddish brown body with some sunburst orange hues. Little bit of a ruddy look going for it. Massive and dense khaki sponge top with some super stay power. Not all that sticky as it leaves the glass fairly clean minus a few scattered dots.

S: The nose has a very warm toasty red malt presence. I get flaky biscuit with a faint smoky tobacco likeness. A touch of dried fruity esters emerge as well.

T: Drinks lighter like an amber lager with a firm red malt nuttiness of toasted warm breads. I get a light smoky tobacco presence with dried cherry notes and some other mixed berries. The beer has a touch of earthy hop bitterness and finishes with a clean dryness. Well balanced with some really well hidden alcohol. Interesting to say the least and not exactly what I was expecting. Not really all that smoky actually but still a very nice quaff.

M: Moderate to light in body with a bit of watered down feel. Light peppery bitterness on the palate with a bit of dryness at the finish. Rather clean overall.

D: Not a lot of info out there on this one. I could have definitely used a lot more smoke here. It is quite mild in that aspect. This is however a decent little amber ale that is smooth to drink and still enriched with some signature CCB flavors.

Extra points for the badass oil can
