Dark brown color, with a frothy beige head, leaving lacing, toasted, caramelized malt nose, with some biscuity, cookie dough accent, with a note of raw grainy, cereals, with some faint chocolatey, roasty aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet toasty, grainy character, with some caramel, toffee, biscuity dough favors, with a nice chocolatey, subtle roasted coffee bean accent, a mild floral hop note, leading towards a malty, lingering hop bitterness finish.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Walnut brown with surprisingly light head. Doughy, minerally malt aroma with light coffee notes. Dry chocolatey flavor with surprising malt complexity and nice roastiness. Lightly acidic, barely bitter finish. Very drinkable, and flavorful for the presumptive OG.

50 cL bottle. Pours dark brown with a deep amber glare. Mild roasted and breadish aroma. Flavour is medium dry roasted malt. Mild breadish note yet somewhat watery flavour and feel. Ends with a light roasted note and mild acidic touch.

SaintMatty (6805) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2008
Draught (Svejki Juures, Tallinn). Dark brown in colour with a tan head. Malty aroma with a bit of sweet coffee. Roasted taste with a hint of smoked ham and coffee along with some aniseed. Not bad although I could imagine it becoming rather sickly after a while.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Pours a dark ruby-brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted coffee and malt. Similar flavors with some sweet caramel and grain. A good overall brew, though a bit thin on the palate. Refreshing.

General66 (203) - Streator, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2008
500mL bottle shared with Illini08 and nimrod. I am embarrassed that this beer came out of my refrigerator. Poured a pretty mahogony color with a small white head that disappeared very quickly. This beers look was by far its best quality. The aroma was almostcompletely absent. The little that was there consisted of malt. The taste was also very bland. It had the consistency of water and I actually tasted a lot of spring water along with a little bit of malt. This beer did not necessarilly taste bad, there was just absolutely nothing going on with it.
