bottle (2008). Dark brown pour, thin cream-colored head. Subtle aroma, no overpowering scents. Flavor is well-balanced leaning towards the malt. Some hop, not a lot, but enough. A very nice drink.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 21, 2008
On tap at Belmont Station--Poured a deep crisp brown-black body with a small wispy white head. Big nutty nose with some malty sweetness. Bold carbonation in mouth feel. Chewy and bitter finish. Very good.

Bottle - 2008 Brewmasters Reserve. Pours dark brown almost black. Tan head dissipates nicely. Roast aroma with coffee and nut overtones. Nice roast flavor that fades with a slight bitterness at the end. Nice beer.

looks jet black, the brown only shows on the edges in the light. stark white head slowly fell in the center and remained on the rim of the glass. some coffee, mostly roasted nutty aromas. I love the balance between a soft mouthfeel, rising bitterness, and medium roast with each gulp. glides down with some viscosity and finishes of sweet almond.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 14, 2008
2008 Brewmaster Reserve Dark brown color with decent tan head; some good lacing. Smells very roasty and slightly smoky. Roasted nuts, pecan, hazelnut, caramel and maple syrup all detectable. Roasted nuts and acidic coffee dominate the flavor. Light cocoa and pecan fade. Good hop balance in this malt show. Nice medium-bodied mouthfeel and moderate carbonation keep this full-flavored brew very drinkable.

Hmmm. This says that its retired but I bought a bottle at Bev Mo for teh 2008 reserve. A very well crafted brew that goes down smooth. Has lots of bitters to start but a very nice after taste. Worth a try as I think it is back.

This beer was much better before they had all their malting troubles in 97. On cask it was their best
