Bottle. The pour is lighter brown. The aroma has a little funk to it so this one might have been an old one. The taste also has it, but good flavor. I guess I need a fresh bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ineedbeer (1471) - Oakland, California, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Poured from a can dated 07/29/2015; its been quite awhile since I had this beer. Aroma is very malt forward and nutty with some nice secondary chocolate and toasted bread notes. Some medium light coffee character. Hints of toffee and caramel. A light floral ester and hop note. Pours a dark brown, almost black with a medium thick, medium sized, dark tan head that quickly recedes to the edges where it lingers. I have seen lighter colored porters and stouts. Medium light lacing and smallish legs. Flavor is somewhat sweet with a moderate toasted bread and nuttiness. Some dark caramel and toffee with lighter notes of chocolate and coffee. Hints of dark fruit with some light floral hop notes. Moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied and fairly creamy with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice somewhat sweet brown ale with a bit of a darker malt presence than is typical for the style. Hop notes and bitterness are also lighter than one would expect for an American version of the style. Almost like a baby stout or porter.

Eructoblaster (3542) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 10, 2015
Can - 12oz. Dark brown body with a thin, beige foamy head. Good malty aroma with chocolate hints. Its malty taste carries chocolate, woody, and some hoppy notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish. Enjoyable.
