Bottle into snifter. Very dark ruby brown almost black. Thin head. Almost no aroma which is a disappointment. Some mild malty biscuit aroma and taste. Mild sweet caramel notes. Full mouthfeel and flavor. Smooth. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle: Pours a reddish brown with a beige head. The aroma was caramel and molasses. The creamy taste was well balanced with plenty of malt and hop flavor and slightly sweet at the end.

Brandon1989 (395) - Euless, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours a dark clear amber color with some ruby in it. The head is tan and rather thick and foamy and left plenty of lacing around the glass. The aroma is dark fruits, caramel, raisins, mildly bitter chocolate, and some brown sugar. The taste is very rich and very good. You have the typical brown ale flavors such as nuts, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, some dark fruit, and mild coffee yet on the back end I pick up the hops that are added and some even mild citrus and hop oil resin. This is definitely a world class beer that I highly recommend.

penstemon (190) - Nevada, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Pours deep garnet brown with a small light tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, caramel, and toffee. All sorts of roasty malty goodness. Taste is lots of coffee, some bitter chocolate, a bit of toffee, roast, and piney bitterness. Soft full carbonation, medium body, and a dry resinous finish. Delicious.

Pours a deep reddish brown. Notes of raisin, brown sugar, toffee. Would be too sweet but it finishes nicely dry and hoppy. Flavors are big and clear, and itís very refreshing and drinkable for the style/abv. Overall a very nice beer, and an old favorite, though itís not as superlative as I remembered.

Many thanks to Beerhunter111 for this bottle. Toller karamell-toffee Geruch. Zartbitterschokolade im Antrunk, Walnüsse, schöne feinherbe Noten, zum Hauptteil hin trockener, malziges Karamell ohne zu süß zu sein, frisch floral. Geröstete Karamellschokolade, feinherb. Lang und floral frisch im Nachgeschmack. Toll!
