3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2008 Very deep, dark brown color with a light tan, fluffy head that is somewhat short lasting. Lightly nutty, malty smell. Taste is creamy, malty, and nutty, yet slightly thin bodied. Could be a tad bit richer. Easy to drink, with a fairly quick finish and almost no bitterness, making it very friendly. A decent, satisfying beer worth giving a shot.

Draught. Chocolate and coffee undertones complement a very drinkable beer. Much better from the tap than in the bottle.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottel from my friend Brian, obtained at Blue Bonnet. Thiis is my second offerting from this brewery, and this is an improvement. Pours dark brown with a than head. Aroma of dry roast, cocoa powder, and nuts. Medium bodied with a hard or well water texture. Flavor is nutty, with some faint nutmeg, dust, and grains. Very moderate sweetness. Finish has something odd that is bothering, perhaps some sourness. Overall, not bad and much better than the Austin Amber

Brown appearance. Chocolate, nutty malt dominate the aroma and flavor. Nothing great but would drink again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Dark brown, almost porterish, thin light beige head, space lacing.   Slight roasted malt, but moreso it smells like a rock quary.   Flavor is very mineral oriented, chalky, with a soft roasted malt.   Austin water maybe?   As it warms up it picks up a little sweetness.   Decent malt body, but this one is very rockish, dusty, and concretish.   Not terrible, but certainly very odd with its churned up gravel like presense.

12oz bottle via trade with legion242 - Thanks! - Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aromas of molasses, nuts, and some caramel. Flavor is caramel, nuts, and some sour fruitiness that just didn’t seem to belong. A fair amount of carbonation and medium body. Pretty average..

Gingerman, Austin. Better from the tap than from the bottle (what isn’t). Seems to have a fuller body here than the take-home packs. Toasty, hints of chocolate and coffee, average-bitter finish. Worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep, dark brown with a thin, beige head. Strong aromas of dark chocolate malts and rich dark fruits. Silky smooth with almost no bitterness. Caramel malt flavors combine with a subtle nuttiness and more sticky dark fruits. Sour, fruity, almost syrupy ending. Pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown with very little head. Dark red when you hold it up to the light. Aroma is sweet, with molasses and chocolate. Initial taste is chocolate, then somewhat smoky. Aftertaste is bitter for a second and then some more chocolate. Tastes like it has some wood flavor to it. Very good except I wish it had some more head. It has a decent amount of carbonation, and the palate is similar to a porter – smooth and a little thick.
