Clear dark brown with a medium foamy beige head. Nose is sweet and nutty and chocolaty with a touch of dark sweet biscuit, like a cocoa flavored hard cookie. Flavor is a reflection of the nose; loads of delightful nuttiness, some sweet earthy cocoa, and a smooth crisp bready finish that’s a touch sweet.

TizzleJizzle (620) - Garland, Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 Draught at ginger man pub in fort worth. The generous amout of alcohol is hidden exceptionally well. Poured a dark brown with a tan head with surperb head retention. Taste, wow!! Caramel malts that transforms into a sweet citrusy fruity flavor then finishes with a slight hop finish. Overall the complexity of this ale is 1 of the best I’ve ever experienced. This brew receives the TizzleJizzle stamp of approval! Go drink this now!

Nice brown pour. Smell is roast coffee and chocolate malt. Nice dose of hops to balance the maltiness. Very good brown.

dyetube (1181) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2011
On tap at The Gingerman Plano. This beer pours a deep brown almost black with a thin tan head. The aromas are coffee, chocolate, raisin. The mouthfeel is slightly sticky and bittersweet with a medium to heavy body. I’m not sure why it rates so low as I thought thus was quite a food beer! Cheers!

ansermadide (1519) - Kyle, Texas, USA - NOV 7, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2009 On tap at the Austin Saucer. This interesting brown ale has a deep dark, almost black color with a classy, slight red tint to it and a fine white head. Its aroma is pretty roasted. Once it hits your mouth you experience a very silky, smooth mouthfeel with something exciting behind it. Its flavor is lightly roasted and pleasant. Its color, as you drink, actually gets more orange. Lightly bitter finish. Overall, I felt this beer provided an exceptional experience and was a treat to drink. I’d suggest to anyone.

dfinney23 (1651) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 31, 2011
On tap @ Cedar Creek. Pours dark brown with a thin cap of foam. Aroma of figs and chocolate. Taste is light but well balanced, with chocolate, dark fruits, caramel and roasted malt. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

kevinator (889) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 4, 2013
This was like a Belgian black IPA. It had a good piney hop aroma with some roasted hints. Dark brown color with a thin head. The weight was average with a full mouthfeel. Average carbonation. The flavors were a mix of piney and floral bitterness with Belgian yeast and some roasted remnants. This blended well and was a unique Belgian ale.

DewBrewer (295) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2009 On tap at Opal Divine’s Penn Field. Not much carbonation but medium to dark brown color. The aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor is sweet and malty with a good deal of fruit character. There is a slight bitterness to balance the other flavors. Nicely balanced. The 7.6% is somewhat hidden. Great beer. Also had the randallized version through centennial hops at Draught House....pretty tasty. (Re-rate from pint at Dig Pub in Cedar Park---more carbonation now, nice big brown ale)
