gripweed57 (611) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - JUL 18, 2012
22 ounce bottle. dark amber color. Big rocky beige head. Roasted malt aroma with hints of cocoa and herbal hops. Bittersweet roasted malt flavor. Light body, creamy mouthfeel and dry crisp finish. Not overly complex, but a good session brew.

dmac (3924) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bomber from Spirits Crossroads. Pours a so-so looking muddy iced tea brown with a large frothy long lasting beige head. Aroma of chocolate, grainy malts, veggies and wet bread. Medium bodied with very soft carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor actually isn’t as good as the aroma with notes of brown toast, grains, very light chocolate, rye. Meh nothing comes but they never claimed it was.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2012
Pours deep red to black. Nise is roasted malts and caramel. No hops. Light hop and malt flavors. Light and drinkable. not bad but bland and boring.

phaleslu (6293) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Draft sample at Microfest 2012. Pours a deep, brown-hued amber with a finger of off-white head. Notes of toasted and chocolate malts, sweet bread, brown sugar, nuts, and a hint of coffee. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a nutty mouthfeel. Not bad.

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle. Medium copper amber, clear, with an off white head. Aroma is lightly roasty and choclatey. The standout flavour is chocolate with a little sweet caramel, but the palate is on the thin side. Nice enough.

beernbourbon (1288) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to jmagnus67. Pour is clear deep copper with a large off-white head. Aroma is mostly lightly roasted malt with hints of coffee and a very light sweetness. Very well-balanced aroma. Flavor also dominated by lightly toasted malt, faint coffee, a nice cookie sweetness, and some very subtle spicy hop notes. The best word for this beer is: balance. Very well done and really easy to drink. Great beer in a usually-boring style. Loved it.

wxman (1398) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy amber with a full off-white head that laces nicely. Aroma is toasted malt and cocoa powder. Taste is sweet roasted malt, unsweetened baker’s chocolate and just a kiss of hop bitterness to round it out. Once again, another really good effort from this small southern Illinois micro.

pours cloudy medium brown with weak head. Slight smokey malt flavor. overall not very impressed but it does stay bubbly.

Frank (2782) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2011
This is a nice, malty amber brew. It’s a bit cloudy w/ only a small head. The nose is very mildly roasty but, once tasted, this has a porterish quality w/ very, nice fresh-tasting roast malt character as the centerpiece. This is rather low in hops and relies mostly on roasted character to balance the very slight sweetness. Carbonation is on the low side, lending this a creamy but drinkable texture. I’m into it and looking forward to trying more from Big Muddy.
