COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of Erie’s first Brewer we name this deep roasted mahogany ale. A full bodied, nutty malt taste for those who like a mouthful!

Would be a nice brown ale if this 15 years ago. Standard in every way, medium body, with a nutty sweetness. Texture has a chewy, almost syrupy texture. The base of this beer is good but if the brewer wants to kick this up a notch; they could add a special ingredient like hazelnuts, cocoa nibs or maybe highly hop it. Right now it is drinkable but really is missing something.

Light brown. Chalky mouthfeel. Nose is sought toasty with pecans. Taste is dry and like flour. Maybe some sweetness. Pretty creamy.

A: Dark Opaque/Brown Hue, Passes No Light, Very Mild Off White Head Ring, No Lacing S: Nutty, Mild Roasted Dark Malts, Mild Coffee T: Nutty, Mild Roasted Malts, Mild Coffee M: Poor Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mild Roasty Flavor Overall, this beer is just flat and weak flavored, a few more pounds of ingredients and some carbonation could make this a really decent beer. Until that happens, pass on it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a very dark brown - almost black color with a small foamy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was faintly dry and woody. The flavor was dry, woody and a bit roasty with hints of nut and floral hops.Medium length dry, wood and floral hop finish. Medium body. Eh.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, chocolate malt, light vanilla, caramel. Flavor is sweet with maple, chocolate, and sweet caramel malt. A bit sweet but nice flavor profile. 7/4/7/3/14 (3.5/5)

Dark, malty, smooth. Better aftertaste. I didn’t like it very much at first, but it grew on me. Came highly recommended by our server. Upon further analysis, I think I prefer this over the double bock.

cheap (3803) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 25, 2012
On tap at the brewerie. Nice and dark fer sure. Rootbeer in color. Slight slaggy aroma, but in a good way. Slag aroma carries over to the flavor. Pretty good and one of the better brewerie beers IMHO. Has some porter attributes in there. Grows on you during the session. decent amount of co2. Finsih is not bad, went down easy.

Pours dark brown with an inch of khaki foam. Nice maltiness on the nose which becomes less pronounced on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not bad for style.
