A deep garnet, Iron Spike Amber pours a dense frothy beige cap with good lacing and retention. To the nose, toasted notes of dark bread and caramel malts as well as deeply rooted dark fruits give way to a perfume of bubblegum, banana, and yeasty esters.
The flavour profile is initially sweet with dark fruit and caramel. This leads to toasted and spicy flavours with a hint of smoke and fall fruits while the hops come through to balance the sweetness. This full-bodied amber ale is an ideal balance of cream, grains and fruitiness
