On tap at Collins Pub. Pours a deep brown with an off white head. The beer wasn’t bad; it just seemed quite basic. Malty aroma with a lot of caramel. Taste was quite sugary with not a lot else happening.

Mahogany-chestnut color with a rapidly dissipating head. Musky brown malt aroma with touch of hops in the backdrop. Decent backbone of brown and medium roast malts. Modest roastiness and mild malt flavor with slight impingement of hop and grain astringency on the finish. Medium-bodied, moderately robust. Solid rendition of the American style.

Dark brown pour with a nice lasting head. Aroma is roasty with some sweeter malts as well. Roasted malts, chocolate, some malty sweetness comes through as well. Dark roast comes through as dry, and the beer is smooth and creamy.

Flavor – Good dark malt usage the beer creamy and full of flavor.

9/10/08 On draught at the Dog & Pony, Renton, Wa. Aroma is roast forward with light creamy sweetness. Appearance is dark brown with a moderate maintained off-white head. Flavor is semi-sour roast malt forward with a light unsweetened cream background and almost no bittering. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a moderate carb texture. Overall, easy drinking for such a heavy roast brown.
