Pours light brown with a thin tan head. Smells of caramel, some tea. Tastes of dark fruit, vegetables, some sugary hints. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light bronze appearance with a large, off white head and decent lacing. Subdued aroma helped by the caramel malts. Taste is toasted malt, with a mild, sweet flavor. Light-to-medium bodied, overly carbonated mouthfeel and a short lived finish. Nothing unique here.

Sample Tasting - Brownish color good head. Sweet roasted malt notes. Sweet malt flavor, but kind of plain/flat. Mild hops finish. Medium bodied. I expected something different.

Not a bad beer from Crescent City, it was recommended to me by the bartender after they had closed so I didn’t get a chance to try any of their other ones. That being said I wouldn’t buy it again and was kind of upset I ended up with a huge cup of this for $8. Oh well

3/8/08 draught at the brewpub. This should be called medium to dark brown forest. Slight caramel malt sweetness with a crisp finish. Not too bad compared to their other brews.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark mahogany-tinted brown with a moderate tan head. Roasted and burnt malt aroma is eclipsed by a bathroom mildew smell-- same as their red ale. Once again, dirty lines unfortunately killed this beer for me. I think it would be quite nice if it were untainted. Too bad.
