Grieve’s 1803 Fat Ox Ale is a cloudy, raspberry brown ale with a bubbly light khaki head that thins a bit and stays put. It has a huge caramel aroma with a very roasted quality. Notes of coffee and chocolate are quite apparent. It’s medium bodied and smooth. The finish is quick and clean. It tastes like it smells, a touch sweet and not really bitter at all. There’s a lot of caramel with notes of coffee and chocolate. The tastes lingers for a while and at last, some bitterness comes out. I honestly didn’t expect such a tasty brew! This goes down with great ease.

This is probably the best beer from Custom Brewcrafters to date. 22oz bomber, brand new release. Chocolate and coffee in the nose, pours a solid brown. Roasty, malty and yummy. I would drink this again.

Draft. Pours brown with a beige head. The aroma has roasted malts, a light sweetness, and some coffee. The flavor has roasted malts and coffee, a light caramel sweetness, and some light floral hoppy notes. Nice.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2015 2010 Autumn Festival of Ales. A Dark amber pour, with a average head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Also a roasted flavor with some coffee and chocolate notes. @nd time around I enjoyed more of the malts and upped the rating.

pours hazy, very dark amber, with a thin tan head and some lacing. Tasty malt aroma. Roasted chocolate malt flavor with some coffee notes. Mildly bitter finish.
