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.

I can't believe i have more of these to drink after this one.Dark red in color,uneventful head that tried and failed to stay around.Malty caramel aroma with maybe a faint appearance of hops,and kind of sweet as well.The taste is malty,caramely with just a faint hint of hops again.very thin brew with little to offer.I guess There is a time and place for every brew and this has a place some where but it just isn't now.Sorry guys try again.

UPDATED: JAN 8, 2011 Ok comes in the weird shaped Henry brown 12 oz bottle, nice handsome blue and gold label. Nice enough looking beer for one so cheap..its a dark ruby colour when held to the light..small tan head that goes very quickly to be replaced by some good lacing. I actually liked the aroma of this beer very much caramel and roasted malts are very upfront . After a good show by the aroma the tatse was a little too thin..yes its pleasant but it isnt very "upfront" yes theres caramel and chocolate flavors. Pretty average on the tongue,,flavour doesn’t last as long as i would have liked. Overall its a good cheap beer.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Dark mahogany with a thin, white head. No lacing. Bitter and malty aroma. Some caramel to it. The flavor is slightly sweet, sugary almost. Warm malts that are slightly bread-like. Palate is a touch watery, though. Finish is easy and smooth.

12 oz bottle into mug. Aroma is toasted bread. Pours a reddish dark brown with a medium head with pretty good retention and creamy lace. Taste is very porter-like. It’s sweet with a touch of tang and no bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy. Carbonation is medium. All trace of foam and lace disappear towards the end of the glass, lowering my appearance score. Overall, not too impressive, but it is tasty. If one were to session a dark beer, this would be a perfect candidate.

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.

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...

brenn79 (1467) - Idaho, USA - OCT 2, 2009
12 oz. bottle - Deep amber to black, pours nicely, flavor is of roasted malt, pretty tasty. This beer is drinkable but a little on the light side flavorwise.
