Huge thanks to mkabull for sending this in a recent trade.

Pours a very dark copper/chestnut brown color with faint mahogany edges and a two finger frothy light beige head. Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap that coats the glass with chunks of soapy lacing.

Floral hop aroma with lots of dank, earthy pine and sweet dark malt. Lots of caramel and chocolate sweetness along with some biscuit and toffee. At first the hops are prevalent in the nose but as it warms it's very malt forward.

Medium bodied but on the fuller end with a blast of earthy, bitter hops up front that lingers over the sweet malt profile into a bitter, dry finish. Lots of dank, uber-fresh piny hop flavor which is excellently complimented by the sweeter malt notes. Lots of chocolate, caramel and toffee flavor without getting in the way of the hops. Usually I dislike hoppy beers with this strong of a malt presence but here it creates perfect balance and adds another layer of complexity.

very happy to get this... went to the smuttfest in portland maine and was able to get this at tully's and there were some at rsvp. The woman at Tully's was awesome!! i went with two friends and we stayed and talked with her for a while.. anyway the zoe is a hot commodity out there so was very grateful to get some...

A - This pours a deep brown color.. i was expecting it to be a tad lighter.. this is the second glass i've had btw.. but it is dark with a pretty impressive head as well as lacing.. looks like a very nice brown/amber brew with a nice body..

S - this smells better than i remembered before... can smell the hoppiness.. definitely smells like a double ipa.. the hoppiness citrus smell jumps out at you... i'm a little suspect of the freshness however... it is good but i almost think i might have one that is just taking that turn and coming off the hoppiness.

T - Very good... again i wonder about the true freshness.. it tastes like when it's fresh it's fantastic.. it's like i can sense the greatness of this but i think i'm just falling a little short.. but i would still pick this up again..

M - It has great flavor.. maybe a little thin and crisp for me.. but that's probably just me.. very refreshing.. just took another sip.. it's not heavy... it's almost a little thin here.. good carbonation however... i hate to sound like i'm zig zagging but i do like this...

D - My style is more along the DIPA and Imperial Stout so i don't know what to say.. cuz i can easily have this but it makes me want something of the other.. this just falls a little short with hoppiness for me but it's an amber ale so i can't judge it like that.. i have to judge it for what it is... in that case i think this is an A beer... cuz it's not my style and i'm still enjoying this... glad i was able to get some!!

Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 4/24/11

Lot 031011

Many thanks to Brez07 for this long-time want

Stained brown, tobacco color. Soft highlights of lightly shaded plum. After reaching just shy of three fingers of foam the head started to slowly collapse to 1/4th inch layer. A decent amount of lace catches mid-way through the glass.

Smells excellent; exactly what I like within the style (I'm calling this one an imperial red, by the by). Hops are lively, expressive and in no short supply. Tropical citrus notes are passed through a floral filter that has already trapped small bits of pine resin. Beneath the hops are notions of caramel and bread (becoming a bit more balanced with warmth).

Exhibiting more of a piney bent, the flavor profile is accented by a moderate bitterness throughout. Citrus seems downplayed compared to the aroma; here, it is zesty and embedded in the mix. There is a spicy kick as well. Toasty, bready malts with subtle caramel. Finishes dry with hints of cocoa, of all things. The aforementioned bitterness compounds over time, nearing astringency.

The medium body is laden with resiny goodness. Carbonation is moderate and suits the dryness of the beer. Alcohol is hidden but at 7.2% abv it sneaks up on you. Bitterness lingers after the finish.

This is a pretty nice imperial red. It's easy to drink and enjoyable. This would be in rotation were I within distribution range. Recommended.

A murky dark golden copper-brown color with a very healthy light tan head and super lacing. The aroma is surprisingly big with lots of nutty malt and pine hops as well as a little dark fruit. Really makes me think of something more along the lines of a barleywine or an imperial red. Very nice but not quite what I expected. The taste buds pick up a more blended mix of fruity malt and piney hops along with some grassy edges. The body is medium at best with tingly carbonation and a frothy feel. Very good though I'd say the aroma beats the flavor.

I got to try Peeper Ale from these guys and thought it was great. Glad to get to try another brew from them. PT bottle...

A: A gorgeous deep dark red with a 1 inch off white head that fades at a decent pace. Very good.

S: Smells of a nice clean hop upfront with some great sweet citrus notes in the middle and some earthy grassiness on the backend. Very good!

T: An earthy bitterness upfront with a mild sweet citrus blended in. Some lemon peel quickly follows with a hint of spicy notes and grapefruit. Good.

M: Medium body with a great carbonation. A dry clean finish. Good.

D: Goes down good.

All in all, this is another solid beer from Maine Beer Co. I've only tried two brews from them and both are solid. Definitely give this one a try if you like hoppy dry beers!

Big thanks to jmarsh123 for the killer extra!

A - pours a reddish brown color without a creamy looking head

S - nose is toasted biscuit and grainy malts. There is a nice splash of earthy and pine hops.

T - taste follows the nose well. Grainy amber malts start it off. These fade o a pleasant.piney bitterness. A little bit of sweet citrus rind is in there as well.

M - creamy, full body goes down well

D - solid amber ale here. Nice bitterness and complexity to it makes it an above average brew and one I would love to try again.

Thanks goes to twelvsies for including this as an extra. Brought these bottles down to St. Louis and split for some non-beer geek friends, to see what they thought. Poured into tulip.

A - Pours brown, off-white head, good lacing, thin cap.

S - Bitter dark chocolate, malts, roast, nice piny hop bitterness.

T - A nice mix of malts and hops. Chocolate, roast, floral notes, slight citrus. A really big bite of hops on the finish that really caught me off-guard. Yum!

M - Light, smooth and crisp, good carbonation for the style.

D - Very easy to drink and enjoyable. We finished this bottle quickly and my buddies really enjoyed it as well. Give it a try!

Half litre bottle poured into Sam Adams perfect pint glass.

Pours a rich but clear brown with the thickest, foamiest head I've seen in a long time. This head lingers throughout the entire drink and leaves a wonderful lace that clings to the side of the glass.

The nose is powerful enough that I could smell it the moment I cracked open the bottle. With lots of hops, this smells more like an IPA than I expected. Bright, fresh, a tad citrusy, wonderful.

The first sip admittedly threw me off a bit - with so strong of a hop aroma up front, I wasn't prepared for the rich malt flavor that was present. Though there is a lot of hop flavor immediately on the tongue, this evolves into a sharp bitterness which then dissolves into full malt flavor. A little bit of coffee, the malts are dark and a bit dusty. I also detect flavors of maple, grapefruit, and mesclun greens.

Overall a very pleasant and well balanced beer that grew on me significantly as I sipped. Though at first I was a little put off by the strong malt character, this same character proved to perfectly balance with the strong hops up front and in the nose. The results: a wonderful Amber truly worth trying.

Picked this up a while ago in New York, as this beer had a date of 1/5 stamped on it. I love all of Maine's beers and this may be the best one that I've had so far, as this was unlike any American Amber/Red Ale that I've had before. Hoppy, but balanced and fairly potent, this was a slow sipper that needed to fully warm up in order to be completely appreciated!

Great pour to this as this beer had a raisin hue to it with a hint of light seeping in around the edges. A thick tan head formed with massive bubbles that burst as the foam settled in for the duration. Not a terribly strong aroma to this but the raisin, dark fruits, and alcohol were certainly there with much of the former in the taste. Lots of currant faded into the piney hops that gave this a good amount of resin to the mouthfeel. Some bitter chocolate, cherry, and biscuit malt could be found here as the residue left behind was quite slick and strong, which was proof of how much booze could be found here.

I like my Ambers balanced and this certainly was, but it was a hint too strong for me. That overshadowed the fine balance of this as there wasn't a lot of carbonation to scrub everything away. Loads of soapy lacing, a smoky residue that made this feel like a Scotch Ale, and hints of pecan gave this a subtle depth that separated this from more hoppy examples of this style but also made me feel that I was drinking something of a different style. Not bad but just a bit off from what it could have been - a solid offering from Maine worthy of the 1% of the proceeds that were donated to save the whales.

Bottle poured into an American pint glass. I was immediately struck by the relatively dark color, a near-brown reddish bronze with an amazingly thick and rich light tan head. Smells like a dark IPA, tons of spicy grapefruit and orange on top of a nutty, toffee-like malt base. Considerable herbal and pine character as well. Like its IPA counterparts, this Maine offering comes off juicy, fresh, spicy, and extremely hoppy across the board, although here the sweet malts keep up admirably. Near perfect balance, truth be told. I focused on the hops first, an evolution from grapefruit and orange rind to a lychee-like perfume to astringent green banana to strong pine and then mellowing out to well-steeped black tea. Fantastic. The malts deliver a lot of biscuit or semi-sweet cookie flavor, some toffee and hazelnut almost like a well-crafted English brown ale, faint chocolate and tobacco. The mouthfeel is quite bold and prickly, thin to moderate body and moderate to high carbonation with a slick resinous finish of unripe bramblefruit and tomato leaf. The fruit really develops nicely near the end of a bottle, straight up Simcoe raspberry jam and earthy pine. As was the case for Another Round and Mo, its hard to find much wrong here. Maybe the bitterness and pine are a tad much for the style? Regardless, epic brew and not to be missed by hops and sweet malt fans alike. This one captures both dimensions at the same time without either being swamped.

Pours a nice dark amber with a dense, creamy beige/eggshell colored head. Great hoppy and malty blended aroma - big sweet grapefruit, resin, sticky pine with some cocoa powder, cereal grain, and caramel. Very vibrant fresh taste - hop bitterness and darker maltiness blend well.

Another fantastic beer from MBC.

Thanks KangarooAdam59!

A - pours a reddish brown color with 2 finger white head some lacing.

S - malts, caramel, earthy notes, piney, citrus.

T - malts start it off, followed by the piney hops and grapefruit.

M - Medium-bodied with pretty good carbonation, bitter finish.

O - This was a great beer! Would definitely trade with KangarooAdam59 again in the future! :)

500 ml bottle thanks to jlindros`for this one!

A-Dark brown with a reddish hue and a nice thick frothy head. Real solid pour into a pint glass.

S-Loads of caramel as well as a lot of fresh grain. Reminds me of doughnuts before being all sweetened. Really has a great aroma Almost a subtle grapefruit smell as well.

T-Very biscuitty and lots of caramel. There is some bread as well as a dry hoppy aftertase. Taste is rather unusual as it switches from sweet to dry hoppiness.

M-Intially very sweet with a drying aftertaste. Medium carbonation makes this very smooth and drinkable.

O-I really enjoyed this beer, it is classy, tasty and drinkable. My only real complaint is that I kind of wish it was in a six pack rather than a 500ml. Great beer though. I am not to familiar with red ales but I thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Thanks to ToasterChef for the bottle. Poured into a Nonick pint glass.

A very large light brown to cream colored head off the pour easily four fingers and more. Head forms real easily and evenly. Dark red brownish hues on the bottom, but almost the perfect looking dark brown spectrum amongst the light. Little bit of sticking carbonation on the bottom of the glass. Excellent and lots of great looking lacing while finishing the drink.

Bouquet is kind of muted, but does have much going for it on the nose. Simple malt, small hints of roast and caramel. Faint chocolate and hops. I just wish this smell was alot bigger but it is still good.

Taste is immediately hoppy but not overpowering. Malt taste is a little limited and masked from the nose, but gives a great medium body feel. Pine sensation briefly, but also with chocolate notes. Hints of grass but not quite getting there.

The more you drink the more the hops take over. However this is a real pleasant brew, and this is very good beer. It's quite complex and hard to find its nuances but I like complexity so this is my thing.

Well, what do you know? Raul did it again: snagged himself another goodie. Now, this isn't a "see a hottie on the 405 and speed up to check her out again," kind of beer; it's more like Raul just walked by a slightly above average girl at South Coast Plaza, liked what he saw, but felt no reason to look back.

Solid Red, better than the majority, but not worth getting in an accident over.

S - Sprity hops, nice solid malt.

T - Nice solid medium malt squished by medium hop. Good stuff.

M - Medium to light body, good carb, nice balance.

D - Refreshing and easy to drink.

Thanks to Hiphop1 for this extra.

Poured into Unibroue chalice

Pours 1/2 finger of creamy khaki head. Great retention with lace rings every sip. Color is a dark ruby head.

Aroma: Very hoppy and citrusy. Pine hops with with some mixed fruit citrus. A caramel malt backbone. Almost like a big Ipa.

Taste: Awesome pine hop profile up front. Very bitter. Grapefruit citrus. Caramel malts again. Sticky hop resin taste. Again, tastes like an ipa. I like it.

Mouthfeel: Bitter and then some. A bit creamy. Medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation. Ends very sticky from the hops.

Overall, one of the better imperial reds I have had. Very fresh and hoppy. Drinks like an ipa and I like it, but it still has some malt to let you know its not an ipa. Pretty good drinkability on this one. Thanks Hollie for a great brew!

Gives you them ruby red shimmers, gleaming the cube. The white head is thick like your girl before she became your ex and started using meth to help her lose weight and get action at bar time. Unlike her, this one has retention.

Aroma was hoppy and malty, they both came through in almost equal parts.

Taste immediately lets you know this is the elite tier of amber/red ales. Super hearty, drinks effortlessly. Not just an easy hop dump of bitterness. Masks the alcohol, hearty beer, effort to drink minimal. Hops still pack in the usual suspects of grapefruit and pine. Mild spice accoutrement.

A lovely bottle.

Pours a rich, deep copper with a two-finger, thick, dark cream head. Great lacing and the head goes nowhere. Sweet citrus aroma. Grapefruit and orange zest lead, also a hint of tropical mango notes. This is a well hopped Amber. Starts innocent enough with slight notes of grapefruit before a bitter earthy and pine kick comes through. Solid caramel malt adds sweet and creaminess before a big hoppy finish. Bitter citrus notes, some grassy flavors and more pine bring it home. Big flavorful amber from this impressive Brewery.

A - Pours a unique mahogany-brown, relatively opaque. A slight red-brown on the edges. About two fingers of light tan head that retained well. Very nice.

S - A lot going on in the nose here. Fairly big hoppiness, caramel, brown sugar, and coffee hints.

T - Slightly sweet toasty and caramel malts in the front. Strong malt backbone. Roastiness as well. Hoppiness comes in with some earthy roasty bitterness and extends into the finish. Lots of nutty flavors towards the finish.

MF - Smooth. Moderate hop bite and a little past medium on the body scale. Slightly watery in the front somehow however.

O - A solid brew. More like a hoppy earthy brown than an amber. A bit pricy, but oh well! Got way more caramel / nutty / earthy than some other users, not sure how.

-Spiegelau ipa glass. Born on 02.16.16. Consumed 04.14.16. Best within 90 days of Born on date.

A: Dark ice tea exit from the bottle yields a beautiful dark burgundy coloring in the vessel with a medium density, 2 finger light tan head that is rock steady on the hold with a spongy, porous texture atop. Medium range, moderate paced effervesce makes its way to the surface. A beautiful presentation and great amount lace coverage.

S: Sweet toasted caramel and lemonade citrus on the nose, wet and fresh.

T: Toasted raisin-caramel, edgy citrus flowery hops, spicy with some semi-dry fruitiness. Lemon, nice toasted malting with some nutty appleskin highlights. Really clean flavor, well balanced with a spicy hop bite at knock out. A nice chocolate dusting on the tongue after the swallow.

M: Crisp, tingly mouthful, smooth texture, full bodied, nice feel and weight.

O: A very polished drinking hoppy red, reminds me of the first time I had an alpine duet, just very clean, smooth with a superb craftsmenship quality. Very well balanced for increased drinkability factor. A bit $ but a bottle is surely worth it. Hop bill and malting is spot on for ideal red.

Blind Beer #12 from Khazadum

16oz? bottle pops with a nice hiss and blast of dank, piny hops.

Into a pint glass it goes, per the blind label. that is NOT the color I was expecting. Pours a dark amber or light maple syrup color with a monstrous four-finger head. The cream-colored pillow seems to just want to hang out with me a while; it just sits there and dissipates, bubble by bubble. As I drink, there are some hints of lace apparent on the glass sides.

Nose still dominated by some big hop aroma: resin and weed just permeate my nostrils. I think there's some nuttiness hidden in there, but this is a hop-forward beer, despite its perplexing color. I really have no idea what to think before diving in...Later I do get some subtle caramel, but barely.

What the hell am I drinking!?!?! My mind is so confused right now. The first sip is so much sweeter than I expected. There's a little caramel and definite roasted nuts, but after a few sips this gives way to a well-balanced bitter hop finish. I get no roasted malt on the back end, so this comes striaght from hop IBUs. What a confusing beer...

Despite its huge frothy hat, there's virtually no carbonation as I drink. I feel like I'm drinking out of a firkin and I like it. Pretty clean around the mouth, but there's a slight lingering slickness on the top of my moth that just won't go away no matter what I do.

Well balanced, and the palate makes the beer incredibly drinkable. I think there's some heat, so we might be looking at like 7.5%, but it still goes down quickly.

At this point, I'm incredibly confused. i'd think something like an imperial amber, or a super dry-hopped india brown ale. I think this is the most perplexing blind beer I've had to date. Not to mention, the unique shaped bottle is confusing me even more.

Big thanks goes out to Drazzamatazz for this beer from the Nice Cans III BIF. 16oz into a NB Globe.

A: Pours a deep red/brown color with a half inch of off white head that fades into a nice cap of bubbles. Lots of lacing left all over the edges of the glass. Slightly cloudy.

S: Lots of citrus hop smells, with some caramel malt and a little bit of roasted malt as well in there. A touch of coffee in there as well. Really a lot of resiny citrusy hops though. Awesome.

T: A lot going on here, citrusy hops and coffee at the same time. Really a nice malt profile, caramel, roasted malts that even border on burnt. Tons of resinous hop flavors, citrus and pine. Excellent bitterness that ties everything together on the finish. Tasty!

M: Medium body, perfect carbonation, finishes about right, not too dry not too sweet. Really nice here.

O: Very enjoyable amber ale, smells great, tastes great and works really well for me. Very enjoyable beer. I really wish this was something I could get regularly, nice beer here!

The story:
I recently went on a trip to New England and ended up at Maine Brewing after checking out the nearby Allagash Brewery. After hearing about Maine Brewing (and scoring a brew - peeper ale) from locals I had to check this place out. I was initially bummed to see they were not open yet (new upgraded brewery location) but decided to take a picture next to the sign out front. Oddly enough one of the owners happened to be there and came out and invited me in(despite them still being under construction) What a nice guy! He showed my lady and I around the brewery and hung out with us for a while. After a cool chat and a private tour, he sent us on our way with a free bottle of Zoe! Very cool.
The beer:
Pours an amber/ruby color with a smal white head.
The aroma is amazing. Smells of fresh citrusy hops.
This brew tastes delicious. A lot of citrus/floral hop flavors and a nice amount of caramel malt flavors to balance.
The mouthfeel is pretty good, nice carbonation and a bit of a dry hop finish. Not as bitter as the aroma would make you think.
Overall a great hoppy amber ale, very drinkable, very hopilicious. Probably the best amber I've had yet. I wish I lived closer, because I would buy tons of this beer.

Bottled on 11/4/12. Consumed on 12/27/12.

A: Poured into a Sam Smith's Imperial pint glass. First impression is the active carbonation. Body is murky chestnut/amber with some mahogany edges when backlit. A two-finger beige head settles on top, retaining well to leave behind thick rings of lace.

S: Good nose for a big, hoppy amber: caramel malt and chocolate malt are followed by a piney hoppy bitterness.

T: Caramel and bready malt followed by piney, citrusy hop bitterness. Lingering taste of pine needles leaves a nice bitter taste offsetting the malt up front.

M: Heft is lighter than expected - about medium, maybe a tad bit lighter. Carbonation is active and fizzy.

O: Very good. Not as good as Lunch (the other Maine Beer I've had), but certainly solid stuff.
