Pours a dark amber with red highlights. The aroma has a lot of caramel, bread and a bit of booze. the flavor has a very nice caramel taste with more hops than I expected giving a fruity taste. A nice crisp feel in the mouth.

Brownish red with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is toasty caramel, not too sweet, and a bit dry. This one grew on me. Very good.

Ericular (596) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2013
Pours a moderately dark brown with lasting thin head and good lacing. Aroma is roasted malts with some caramel sweetness with a hint of dark fruit. Taste is sweet and slightly tangy up front then some drying bitterness in the middle, and mild roast in the aftertaste. This is subtle overall, but with a nice flavor. Palate is medium bodied and noticeable carbonation.

A bit of a flat taste, but not bad flavor. Good dark amber color. Not overly carbonated, which is always a good thing.

ReverendMoon (139) - Illinois, USA - NOV 16, 2013
This is actually a pretty darn nice brown ale. For a style that tends to be pretty bland, it has a nice chocolatey flavor. Quite malty, as expected. Hint of coffee. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
