Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #70. Draught sample (only 3 ounces or so) at the brewpub, August 2008. Big tan head topping a translucent maple body...sweet, vaguely malty aroma has hints of corn sugar...cola-like, watery body, artificially sweet and cloying at the front, harsh and bitter at the finish. THANK YOU SIR MAY I HAVE SOME MORE.

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at the brewpub. Clear deep orange pour with a big foamy head. Nutty aroma with some caramel. Finishes dry and slightly hoppy. Just okay.

On tap at the brewpub. The body was opaque rusty brown with a light khaki head. The aroma was caramel and bread crust. The taste was strong caramel with some bread crust and hitns of pumpkin. nicely blanced with some hints of citrus.

On tap at the brewpub/bowling alley. Pours a dark amber brown brew with an off-white, almost beige head. Fast dissolving head and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is a little complex with scents of Brazillian nuts, sweet caramel, medium roasted malt and a touch of olive oil. Taste has a good balance of carbonation and medium body with a dry hoppy finish.

Roasted aroma with prunes. Looks like a rootbeer with no head - clear like iced tea. Taste: initially punchy and sour lactic thing that grows to unpleasantness. Nutty like roasted chestnuts (I think). After taste is of stale cheese and the body is not so hot either. Grew on me a little as I drank, but its really not great.

On tap at the Brewpub. Dark amber to light brown ale. Beige head. Giant bubbles. Milky aroma. Thick sweetness. Is there lactose in this? Slight hazelnut flavor. The sweetness is awesome. Slight diacyl off-flavor.
