Mildly smoke aroma. Thin, light white head. A little hoppy in taste, smoky, caramel aftertaste. Not very fizzy. Worth trying once.

radio_nowhere (1018) - Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2015
Draft sample at Cherry Blossom Beer & Wine fest, deep brown color with tan head. Aroma notes of toasted malt sweetness and light chocolate. Taste adds some nuttiness and caramel. Light body, moderate-low carbonation, sticky with sweet roast finish. Nice brown ale.

degbert (1293) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours a dark brown with red highlights and a pillowy, fine-grained, soft light brown head. Nose is smoke, toast, roast pecans, and polished wood. On the tongue, there’s dark caramel, milk chocolate, tea, smoke, and vanilla. Really well balanced, with a good mouthfeel and a long finish shifting into molasses. Tasty.

Vinylholic (18) - Uniontown, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2015
Deep malt aroma with a deep brown color. Slight bitter flavor with yeasty and sweet flavor. Strong amount of carbonation. Good, solid brown ale.

Block (1649) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Super carbonated. Brown pour, huge tan head. It’s a mouthful of yeast. They need to filter this thing.

Dark brown with a light beige head. Aroma is nutty, malty, a little sweet. Smooth, a little bit of a creamy feel. Not bad.

BrettTaylor (622) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Pours a dark brown with resilient 1 finger off-white head. Aroma is malt, biscuit, and a hint of milk chocolate. Taste - rich malt, chocolate, a touch of caramel and biscuit. Finish is pretty short and clean.
