Lemke10 (824) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a dark brown color with a decent head of foam as you take in the scents of malts with a hint of chocolate. It drinks much like a stout as it has that thicker and heavier taste to it. Nicely made and finishes rather smoothly. Something to try if you like heavier beers.

Pour from a 16.9 oz bottle. SLightly cloudy brown ale with small head. Aroma of brown sugar, dark fruits. Taste is slightly sweet malts at the start and mild astringent hops in the finish. SLightly off taste in the very finish. OK.
