This beerís flavor was hidden amongst a bit of water. It has hints of nuttiness with slight hops in the finish. Very little lace in the glass upon finishing. Simple beer.

aroma of nutty coffee. But not very strong. Flavor is much the same. More pronounced though. Strong malt profile. Very good nut brown

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2009 Draft at brewery. Clear dark brown-copper. Earthy, dry cocoa and spicy molasses aroma. Toasted nut initial flavor, with a dry cocoa and British yeast finish. Palate is light-medium, dry and astringent.

Some nuttiness, warm malts. Not a ton of flavor. Fairly light for a brown ale. Not bad though.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Tap. Not much of an aroma, perhaps some malty sweetness but I like the dark Ruby Red color. The head was fairly thin and the taste is also of malts with a slightly bitter finish. A good substitute for when they occasionally run out of the state street stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a beautiful dark brown, with a nicely creamy head. Tastes of roasted nuts blended with caramel and a note of coffee lurking about in the background. A bit light in the taste for such a dark brew, exacerbated by hoppy finish that could stand some heavier notes up front.Overall, a fairly good brew.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draught. Deep amber, frothy beige head. Eyewatering nose of sour milk and yoohoo chocolate drink. Tastes exactly the same; sour milk and mocha latte. For comparison, the sourness is of equal intensity as the infamous infected Victory V10. Medium-light body, creamy. Poisonously overbitter muddy and ashtray aftertaste coats the tongue. If any of the commercial description flavors were in there, they were completely overwhelmed by lactic sourness. Nasty!

I had the Alt before I had this donít make that mistake. This beer was a nice amber pour with light lacing. It had a sweetish maltiness with a light bitter finish. A very well balanced beer. A nice beer that was just a tad on the watery side. Overall a damn fine brew. I wish I could make one like it.
