This clear, dark copper brew’s head vanishes quickly, but its aroma lingers in the air: Rustic, piney hops add earthy depth to thick, sweet caramel scents. Caramel brittle flavors rush forward as dark chocolate meanders through the sweetness. Spicy hops paint a peppery note into the mix as bitterness sweeps over the tongue. As the flavors recede, nutty notes remain alongside a touch of sweetness. Amid a style that’s sometimes lost between pale ales and brown ales, Scuttlebutt’s amber finds a tasty median.
