beer_rookie (152) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 1, 2015
Pours a reddish copper color. About two finger beige color head. It doesn’t last long, not much lacing.

Aroma is coffee and toffee. Medium roasted barley malt. I bet if you did a blind taste test, you’d be surprised. The aroma would stand up to anything in the style.

Taste follows the nose. Coffee and toffee. Barley malts. It’s pretty sweet, but a touch of bitter at the end. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is very very smooth. Likewise very very drinkable. Body is medium.

Overall, this is very tasty. It’s a lot better than I remember. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

This isa beer I loved in college. The guys and I loved this stuff back then. We thought we were something drinking this. Everyone else was drinking Bud Light, we were drinking these, oooh yeah! Let the good times roll!

Bottle. Sweet roast malt nose, some light ripe plums. Reddish-brown color, thin tan head. Very tame sweet toasty malt with minimal hopping. Medium body. Overly sweet. Flavors fade quickly.

Eructoblaster (3397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle - 12oz. Amber body with a fading, off-white foamy head. Fair malty aroma with brown sugar hints. Its bland malty taste carries bready, brown sugar, and grassy notes. Ends with a short metallic finish. Boring.
