BOTTLE: dark brown, small tan head that quickly disappeared. Smells sweet. Nice crisp palate, medium body, smooth taste with vanilla hints and brown sugar. Short finish is clean and refreshing.

On tap at the yard house: Smelled of cheese? Not a bad smell, but definitely a cheesy smell with the malts. Was nice deep brown and had a pleasant nutty flavor, but was very complex.

Not bad at all, chocolate comes out straight away both in the aroma and flavor, a bit too sweet for my tastes but very drinkable

Bottle. Dark brown with a hint of red, light tan head that was pretty thin and faded quickly, not much lacing. Aroma is pretty tame, a little bit of malt with hints of coffee. Flavor is kind of nutty, a touch of coffee, kind of roasty, good balance. Smooth, body isnít near as substantial as a porter, the next step up the dark beer scale, so I thought there was a bit more to be desired there. Not bad overall.

UPDATED: FEB 15, 2007 On tap. Tastes of roasted brown sugar, light nut flavors. Average mouthfeel, a beer that isnít very bold in any way.

This is a great brown ale. The bitterness is just right and the finish nice and slightly bitter. Mouthfeel was smooth and slightly floral. A very good brown ale.

I was hoping for something a little more robust. Pretty much dead on the tongue. No carbonation and a bit too sweet for a brown. Not my cup of tea, but a smooth drinking ale nonetheless.

Bottle. Pours dark amber brown with minimal, lacy head. Smells of roasted coffee, malts, cocoa, brown sugar and nuts... very earthy. Tastes are heavily dominated by the roasted coffee flavor, but there are ample notes of cocoa, malts and some hop presence. Itís a medium-bodied beer, a good mixture of heavy and light. It finishes quick with a sweet aftertaste. A very nice brown ale.
