[3105-20100703] Tap. Toasted stinky socks and smoky charred beet aroma hints at some tree earth. Clear, dark red body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head. Mild earthy tree malt continues in the flavour with a lingering earthy malt aftertaste. Medium body. Fair.

Braudog (5746) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Draft at the Washington DC brewpub, 5/5/06: Pitch black (duh). Almost a stouty roastiness with a bit of a tart side. Good.

thirdeye11 (5549) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 6, 2010
(draught) medium clear brown with decent tan bubbles around the edges. Nose of lightly sweet brown sugar, mild watery coffee, touch of smoke, and some cereal grains. Taste of cereal grain, watery coffee, a touch of smoke, and light brown sugar. Hate to repeat the Mose but it tasted exactly like i expected after smelling it. Light body and lots of flavor for the style.

Cornfield (5482) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Tap: This has a deep dark brown body with a creamy ecru head. The aroma carries some lightly roasted malts, dark caramel, and lightly smoked nuts. A bit watery, but still delivering a moderately sweet, lightly roasted & toasted malt flavor with a mildly bitter finish. Quaffable.

b3shine (5456) - Indiana, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Draft to taster at the Atlanta brewpub. Looks solid; a transparent brown with foamy off-white head. Smells malty with notes of dough and lager yeast. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a solid mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.
