On tap at the brewery as part of a sampler.

A- coppery brown, decent lacing.

N- malt forward roasty, nice bitterness

T- hops, brown sugar, coffee, bitter on end, burnt caramel. Fair bit of malty body with a roasty aspect.

M- medium body and good carbonation, nice crispness and really drinkable.

Nice session amber. Fairly straightforward amber, with a nice bit of bitterness, really sessionable and pretty tasty stuff.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a murky dark brown/copper color. Off-white head stays at about a finger, and the lacing's not too bad.

Smell: Caramel malts and spice -- not overpowering. Coffee and alcohol too? Smells a little bit like a darker beer at times.

Taste: The front has a sweet caramel and almost honey sweetness, but the back has an excellent balancing of floral hops and quality malts that creates a very pleasant aftertaste. The bitterness is there in the finish a little bit, but it's a nice way to take away the sweetness that comes with the beginning of each sip. Mouth feel's prickly at first, but creamy on the finish -- probably the best part about the beer, as it helps to make everything come together.

Dark amber, about an inch and a half of head. Smooth, good taste. Not bitter (which is good in my book). Long finish. Overall, a very good beer. Was given this by a friend from California, and I live in the Boston area. I'll have to look around and try to find it here.
