zgaier (1751) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2012
On tap. Pours amber-brown with a off white head and aroma of light chocolate and malt. Taste is sweet, of malt, chocolate, fruit notes, and hops with a smooth finish. Drinkable, light brew.

Growler. Dark brown color with a thin off-white head on top. Not much sticks around for lacing. The aroma is fairly nice with caramel, toasted almond, and some light chocolate. Pretty much the same thing going on with the flavors; toasty caramel malt mixes with some lighter chocolate notes and perhaps a little mixed dried fruit. I don’t really get almond here. This is very drinkable; carbonation is relatively high and spritzy. This is a pretty solid brew, although I admit to be rather unexcited with it. In some ways it seems like a slightly watered down version of Maduro.

gkost (1710) - Tampa, Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Pours a clear brown with hints of red. Very little carbonation. Nose is toasted malts, mild smoke, grain. Flavor is crisp grain, tiny roast, earthy malts and hops. Easy drinker. Beautifully done.

rbrazell (1698) - Florida, USA - APR 13, 2012
Pours a very clear medium amber with a small white head that laces a good amount. Aroma of roast, caramel malts, and some spruce and pine. Flavor is bitter throughout with bits of roasty dryness and touches of toffee. Not too shabby.

NordicV (1518) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - FEB 11, 2012
Rödbrun öl med lätt gulvitt skum. Dofter av rostad malt och hasselnötter. Lätt nötig beska. Mörkt osötat bröd och lätt rostad ton tillsammans med lätt karamellsötma.

OmegaX (1353) - Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2013
Great brew. On tap at CCB. Nose is cocoa, some roast, coffee, and toffee. Malt heavy with tons of coffee and toffee flavors. Dark brown, almost black body.

Chipalsa (1311) - Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2013
Quite the drinkable beer here. Aromas revealed some nuttiness and coffee with a touch of yeast. The taste was malty with more toffee and light toast with some nice subtle hop notes towards the end. Pints of this would go down fun.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2011
Pours deep amber with nice roasted notes that show a deep bready mouthfeel. Roasted malts and nuts drive the nicely balanced lower abv beer.

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2011 Draft at World of Beer. Pours a muddy brown with a mid sized beige head. Aroma has roasted malt, coffee, caramel, and dried fruit notes. Flavor is fairly mild and sweet with some mild bitterness in the finish and lingering tobacco notes.

Chalsk (1097) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2011
On tap at Capone’s for the Cigar City Philly Beer Week Event with Leafs93 and O’Meara. Pours a black color with an off white foam head. Has an aroma of slight smoke and caramel. Sweet smokey taste with caramel and slight hollow bitters that you get with english bitters. Thin mouthfeel.
