On tap at the 4 Elf party. A big but somewhat nice sugary sweetness in the back. Sugary but surprisingly drinkable.

b3shine (4402) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Draft to taster at Dark Horse. Looks goid; a dark cola with beige head that dissipatea into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and donut with a bit of roast. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A little thin, but a decent spin on the style nonetheless.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2010
Draft at MIBG Summer festival during RBSG 10. Pours a paler, Northern English Brown. Nose is toasty and nutty. A bit of maple sneaks out, as does almond and chocolate. On taste, more of the same. Slightly sweet. Toasty and nutty as well. Pretty decent brown ale.

vtafro (2450) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Draft @ EBF. Brown pour with some tan head. Vanilla, roasted nuts, and malts in the flavor. Finishes malty with a bit of warming. Nothing too off the path of a normal brown ale.

Draft at EBF. Pours a brune and amber toned body with an off white head. Dark malt that is a bit roast y accented slightly by vanilla. Pistachio nuts with a a dry and roast y an of course a nutty body. A mild warming, and a malty finish. Nice.
