On tap at Dreamland BBQ in Montgomery. Pours a decent head, black color, looks darker than it tastes. Overwhelmingly malty, but a little hops to round it out at the end. I agree with the toffee-description, had a harder time with the chocolate. Really enjoyed this beer, will look for it in the future.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle - pours dark amber with khaki head and good lacing. Nose is caramel and roast. Favor adds dark chocolate and nuttiness. Medium body. Moderately sweet and bitter for a balanced finish, but still on sweet side for the style. Slight coffee aftertaste. Label says 5.6% ABV. Something tells me the water for this beer was subpar.

Draft at Bodega La Crossed, WI. Nutty flavor. A bit flat. Pleasant enough. I would have it again.

Bottle. Pours clear brown with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma of bready malt and chocolate. Bready and chocolate malt in the taste too, becoming dry and watery halfway through, ending with some English hops. Flat.

The aroma was strong, but the head and the color were excellent. Very dark with a long lasting head. It has a decent taste to it. Itís a decent brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Taco Mac. Dark brown with reddish tint. Aroma of caramel and toasted malt. Taste follows the nose. There is also a bit of unpleasant bitterness present. Mouthfeel is weak - a bit too thin. Overall, ok but wouldnít seek out again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours dark brown but clear, quick dissipating head. Aroma is a bit medicinal and somewhat toasty. Tastes roasted with a bit of medium caramel. Aftertaste hints at dark chocolate and also a bit astringent. An example of a Brown ale that should be in the lower 50%.
