Pours a dark color with a red hue. Small of white haed with no lasting power. Aroma is grossly sweet. Almost tastes like flat cola. Just terrible.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, grain, caramel and mild funk. Taste of caramel and mild hops. Cream body that reminds me more of a cola than a beer. Meh.

JoeMcPhee (8534) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2008
Deep brown beer with a creamy tan head. Aroma is quite nice. Rich nutty/chocolatey sweetness. Softly bready malt sweetness with a well-lagered cleanness. Sort of doughy and malty with lots of rich figgy/fruity sweetness. Really great balance with the fruitiness playing well off of the sweet rich malts. Lightly herbal hop finish. I wasn’t expecting much from this, but it is really quite good, and at 1.90 its a fantastic deal.

notalush (4962) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 21, 2008
I bought this because it was a buck ninety for a 500ml - I figured, even if it’s bad, who cares? - it’s 1.90 - anyway, this really is much better than the ratings suggest - pours a dark amber, with a moderate lace - aroma of cherries, nuts, treacle, pastry dough, bread pudding - the flavor isn’t a sweet, and actually has a tiny bit of tartness to it - a lot of doughy character in the flavor, with cane sugar in the background, cherries, raisins, figs, nutty character - a touch of hops - lingering clean sweetness in the finish - fairly flavorful (but surprisingly sweet) for the abv - like a toned down assam bock - it’s pretty good - actually, for the price, it’s damn good.

500ml bottle dark brown with a nice foamy head. malt aroma. bland flavor thin with a bit of nuttiness. blah

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2008
dark brown pour as promised with a well sized light tan head. malty aroma, but the taste doesn’t deliver the punch and the finish is odd.

yespr (31650) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 6, 2008
From tap. Pours dark brown with a huge light tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and light acidic. Flavour is mild fruity and light acidic roasted malt. Goes into a light dry buterish and medium dry finish.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2008
This is a medium-bodied dark beer with an oily aroma. It has a somewhat metallic flavor that has malty nut tendencies.

clong83 (285) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Kind of disappointing. Nose of heavy sweet malts, but the body seemed thin. Good hop presence, and flavor is of roasted malts. Finish is hot somehow (only 4%!), and not unpleasant but kind of metallic. Weird beer.

hayduke (3423) - Eureka, California, USA - MAY 11, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 From a 12 oz bottle this poured a chocolate brown with a small and quick fading light tan head and minimal lacing. Mouthfeel is medium and fairly smooth. Nose roasted malts, and some roasted nuts. Flavor is of burnt malts and some chocolate. Sweet finish.

cheap (4173) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2008
Ahh, yes. Malty, mild chocolaty wet wood aroma. Brown, like rootbeer without any red tinge. The wet wood carries over to the flavors. Also has wet leather on the palate. Metallic at times with a weird unhopped savory finish. Interesting and unique, nice brew, rather enjoyable.
