Yes! I love a surprise. Bottle at Hickory Tavern. Pours brown/black with tan foamy head. Aroma is chocolate, caramel, toasted marshmallow. Taste combines those with some good Willamette hops...so you get sweeter and savory notes. A good "deep" brown with layers of flavor.

Bought 3 bottles poured them all (one at a time) into a pint glass. Nice dark color, couple fingers of tan head. Tastes malty but not really sweet, which is good. Easy drinking, nice buzz after 3.

From a bottle. Faint roasted aroma, very dark brown with minimal head, very fruity with a little bitterness. Itís quite good.

beerlove231 (166) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2014
Deep burgundy. Lightish body, but it has a chalky and syrupy base thatís solid. Richly roasted and chocolaty, with a pinch of sourness. Toasty bitterness. Light notes of coffee in the background. Dark, without being too dark, if you will. Rather drinkable.
