COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

This bottled brew poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized long lasting light brown colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body contained average carbonation, was semi-transparent and dark brown in color. Its aroma contained notes of brown malts. Its mouth feel has a lingering malt bite in the finish. Its flavor contained dark beer brown malts notes. Good flavor but needs to be thicker.

Uneventful dark brown ale. Good dark color, nice balance, nothing particularly exciting.

Cornfield (5506) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Pours a deep chestnut with a beige halo for a head. Smells of roasted malts, nuts, and slight floral hopping. Very roasted dark malt taste, light caramel, nuts, and a splash of coffee. The finish is dry and bitter. Okay.

Poured a reddish brown wothout much head. Nice balance, nothing overwhelming, but a little watery. A decent brown ale.

This one is better than the Genesis Ale. The aroma is toasted malt and resin hops. The appearance is a dark red brown with a medium head. The flavor is complex. It has coffee, molasses, caramel and oddly vegitables. The bitterness in the finish is just right. It’s like coffee with brown sugar. Good stuff.

12 oz brown bottle received as a gift and purchased at Sam’s, Chicago, IL. Spotted in the hilarious Schmaltz Brewery home website. Clear dark brown ale having small diminishing off-white head with spare lacing. Soft carbonation. Sweet malt, dried fruit and toffee aromas. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt, toffee, and toast flavors. Finishes dry with nutty malt aftertaste and tiny hop bitterness. This is a very good drinkable session beer. Thanks Deb!

SDalkoholic (2156) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Lightly toasted malt and sign of nuts are found for the nose. Possibly the darkest brown ale I’ve seen or can remember of. Lot of sediment floating about and head had a short lived time span. Flavor is tad bit sweet with bitter aftertaste but a much more prominent nut flavor comes through then in the aroma. Perhaps almond or cashews.

gearbike (512) - West Bloomfield, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2005
Dark brown with a very small dissapering head. Definately similar to the Jewbelation 8 ale. Choclately, molasses on the edge of a toffe/coffee but not enough to call it a porter or stout.

This was actually pretty good. I went in with low expectations and found myself with an above average session beer. I know I will choose other beers to stock my fridge but might find some occasional room for this.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with retentive beige head. The aroma is kind of weak, but seems to be malty with some raw grain. The flavor is raisins and hay with some weak hops. I’m not particularly impressed.
