Odd beer. It looked good, poured with a very dark amber colour, and came with a nice ivory head; decent lacing with this one. Aroma was difficult to discern; there was an aroma but I could not suss out what it was. Not unpleasant, just ’there’. Taste and mouthfeel were acceptable but not remarkable. Just a so-so beer, but at least drinkable at a proper price.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Pours out a shiny dark cola color with a thin white head. Very overly carbonated. Mostly malt and water in the flavor, very light hop presence. Not bad for what it is.

12oz bottle 3/4/09 (Tukwila Trading Co.)-Pours a dark brown with a small off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, and coffee. Taste of the same. This medium to full bodied brew is nice tasting but a bit light. Very drinkable.

ditmier (1508) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 21, 2008
2008 Bottle - Pours dk brown with a small off white head...aroma is slight skunk that accompanies all HW bottles, along with sour grain and faint malt...flavour follows, with some toasty notes, light and thin on the end with a malty mouthfeel and taste that lingers, not bad for the money...

boFNjackson (4171) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Poured deep, almost black, with clear, amber highlights and a thin ring of a head. Aroma is roasty with mostly malt on the nose. Very refreshing and a lot of caramel flavors up front but kind of fell short towards the finish and was a little sour, tangy, and unbalanced.

12 oz bottle via Fred Meyer. Pours a dark dark brown with a large tan head. Nose is toasted grains, nuts, chocolate. Tastes like it smells with some roastiness, and mild grassy hops in the finish. Body is light, carbonation is high. A sessionable easy drinking beer that tastes ok. Better than i expected from Henry.

Bottle from Fred Meyer in Portland, OR--Poured a brown-amber body with a dissipating white head. Thin, watery pour. Decent carbonation. Mildly roasty, nutty, maltiness with a minimal hop bite. Sessionable, boring, but highly drinkable.
