COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark chocolate in color, you can see a wonderful reflection if you hold it up to the light. It is round and soft with the warm, sweet aroma of freshly roasted malted barley. A satisfying, malty taste, with coffee-ish tones and a hint of plummy fruitiness in the finish. Complex and beautifully balanced.

Bottle. pours a clean, deep brown color. Smells of caramel malts. Real clean mouthfeel, lots of malty flavors and hints of chocolate and fruit. A bit nutty.

lamas (1549) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 5, 2005
500mL bottle. Label is slightly different than that in the picture. A clear ruby pour with a smallish, bubbly tan head. Aroma of dark malts, chocolate, grapes and soy sauce. Medium body. Lots of malts in the taste. Hints of chocolate and coffee. A little bit of grapes and nuts too. A dry, coffee-esque bitter finish.

ToXBoy (9) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2005 does not count
Poured a beautiful brown, No real head to speak of but lacing lasted. Malty slightest bit of smoke. Smooth malty taste sweet with a little to much fizz. But most enjoyable will try again.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Pours a lush brown with a nice head of foam. Aroma is 99% molasses, and that doesn’t sit very well with me. Flavor is molasses, roasted malt, and faint hops. A bit watered down in the palate. It needs a more vibrant flavor to push it over the top towards being a great beer. Otherwise, it’s status quo. Still, not a bad beer; just could be a lot better.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2005
pours a brownish color, with a small tan compact head, aromas of fruit, raosted malts and sweetness, the taste is dry and bitter, cofee-like, not bad, just not my thing.

BillyM (151) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Semi-sweet and dry, flavor is of malt, coffee and raisins with a smoky undertone. A little weak on the overall flavor, but that might be due to the beer I just had. Try again & re-rate.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Malty aroma, vegetably. Reminds me a bit of chicken broth or cheap gravy and mashed potatoes. Pour was a deepish yellow/brown, with a decent head and no lacing. Flavor was big on vegetables... if I actually ate mine, I may be able to identify which ones :) A bit of maltiness as well but an overly watery palate doesn’t allow much flavor to come through.

Suttree (6046) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2005
Reddish-brownish, slightly hazy, with a dense light brown head. Really nice aroma kind of a pumpernickel bread along with some sweetish, fruity notes. Flavor is nocely toasty, with hints of raisin. Slightly peppery, smoky finish.
