Sample at Yabo’s Tacos. Pours brown with some amber around the edges and a medium beige head that dissipates quickly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, roasted nuts and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a short chocolate malt aftertaste. Average overall.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2004
Dark reddish brown with a moderate off white head. Interesting aroma, with a slightly nutty sweet maltiness with a hint of rast malt. Flavour gets a little bit of everthing foreshadowed by the aroma. Nutty roast lingers in the aftertaste. Palate is pleasant but a bit light in the finish. Nice beer, thanks Obisbeer.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2007
Bottled. Poured a clear, brilliant reddish-orange with a short dusting of white.. some rising carbonation. The aroma picked up softer nutty and caramel sugars.. some herbal notes.. smelled pretty good. Flavor was along those same lines.. sweet caramel and a bit of dry chocolate with mild bitterness. Dry and sweet on the palate.. light-bodied. Overall a smooth, somewhat tasty brew.

Caramel chocolate dirt. This is just about as generic and undeveloped of a beer as you will find.

On tap at Pizza/Birreria Paradisio. Pours a clear orange brown with a thin tanned beige head. Light toasted malt, but not a lot else going on. Malty, a little metallic. Finishes with a slightly acidic flavor that reminds me of the inner core of a pineapple.
