JaBier (4983) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JAN 16, 2010
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine. Brown pour with a medium beige head. Caramel malt in the aroma, but smells very weak and lager-ish. Flavor is caramel, a hint of butter and more of that lagery character. They say itís an ale, but itís pretty weak if so. And a towering behemoth? Iíll go with baby smurf.

TheBeerGod (5310) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2009
Bottle. Cola colored brown with a beige head. Aroma is very nutty and earthy with light spicy hops, big caramel, sweet malt, and chocolate covered nuts. Taste has more earthy and spicy notes, sweet malt, big caramel, chocolate and a lactic tartness. Maybe some tart berry as well. Body is light-medium with a bubbly carbonation. Finishes with more big caramel, sweet malt, chocolate covered nuts, earthy flavors, spicy and floral hops and berries. Perhaps cherries.

radagast83 (4911) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 21, 2009
I donít know if there was something wrong with the bottle, but it just wasnít that good. Pour was promising, with a nice ceamy brown color and a slightly tan head. It was all downhill from there, notes of sour and sweetness powered the aroma, with flavors that followed in that same line. Could have been a bad bottle.

hayduke (3416) - Eureka, California, USA - NOV 18, 2009
This is as as dark "brown" beer as will find with the color nearly black with a medium tan head and good lacing rings. Nose of roasted malts with nuts, chocolate and coffee. Medium heavy body and a good mouthfeel. The flavors are malts, chocolate, coffee and some bitter hops. Dry and bitter finish. Thanks Strykzone for this good beer.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 18, 2009
Sample at Breckenridge Ball Park Brew Pub in Denver. The beer is a deep brown color with a medium beige head that is fully lasting. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted nuts, chocolate and coffee. Medium body with flavors of grainy malt, chocolate, roasted coffee and some hops. The finish is sweet malt up front with a lingering moderately bitter coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.
