Jcarb28 (97) - Pico Rivera, California, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Poured very dark brown. Sweet, malty aromas with a toasty, coffee flavor to follow leaving a slight roast taste on the palate. Decent although this one had a bit of a porter style to it.

Can brown pour no head. Tea like flavor and aroma. Very light and watery. Needs more malt profile.

Didn’t take tasting notes. Just wrote down the score so I’m typing just enough words.

monk191 (1545) - California, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Not a bad brown. Pours a cola color with a thick tan head. Smells great, of cola, vanilla, nuts and coffee. Taste is basic, with cola and coffee and a vanilla finish. Had on tap at Bay Area Brew Fest 2015.

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2015
12oz can pours with a clear amber to brown body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up roasted malts, soft sweetened coffee, some malt balls and dash of chocolate. The taste starts sweet with malts and a bit of caramel and then heading into mild dark roasted malts and brown sugar sweetened coffee. Midway and into the finish it picks up chocolate to join a modest coffee sensation to close out the experience. A bit on the sweet side for my taste.

KeefOz (1263) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 7, 2015
Poured a translucent deep brown colour with a one- to two-finger light tan foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation medium to high and fine. Aroma subtle of sweet malt (a bit lager like), chocolate and coffee. Taste is much stronger than the aroma would lead you to expect with coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Light body feeling a bit thin but not watery. Smooth with a creamy mouthfeel with a slight bitterness on the finish. Pleasant and easy drinking.
