Draft at NCBC. Pours a murky and very dark mahogany. Impressive coloration. Loose filmy tan head. Light sheety lace. Virtually no nose, good or bad. Creamy medium body with subdued carb. Light toasty caramel on the mid palate but not a lot of other flavors showing. Mild finish.

Fluffy head. Dark brown appearance. Nutty aroma. A little caramel malt poking through. Very subtle nut flavor, with some caramel sweetness, and a tinge of bitterness. As others have said - it’s straight-forward, without much to it. Very "clean" texture. Decent stuff.

On tap. Hazy dark copper with an off white top. Scent is cereal and caramel. Taste is caramel and earthy.

Bottle. Dark red brown pour with thin lasting head. Malty and caramelly aroma, fairly light. Light bodied with a quick finish. More malt. Not bad.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Had at the Rhino. Dark brown, clear, frothy beige head. Aroma of nut, caramel, light roast. Taste is the same, solid beer, no off flavors and easy drinking.
