Served on tap. A dark amber, light brown beer with a slightly off-whit head. Aroma is very nutty with some caramel sweetness. Taste is slightly sweet with the malts dominating. There is a nutty overtone to the taste as well. A somewhat thin and watery mouthfeel. In sum, a very pleasant brown that tilts toward the nutty.

Had bottle. Has nutty, caramel taste; dark brown with less than full head. Not bad for an American brown. Will drink again!

Pours dark brown with a medium off white head. Nose is roasted malt and coffee. Taste is malty and nutty, maybe even a little smoke. Not much bitterness, nice and easy to drink.

Bottle. Brown, of course. Roasty nutty malt. Bit of caramel, some more nuts and hint of citrus. Mouthfeel is light and bit watery in the back. I’m disapointed with palate. Aroma is quite interesting tough. My first ’quality’ beer after coming to US :)

Brown. Slight opaquacity. Good viscosity. Minimal uniquity. Certainly enjoyable and drinkable, yet lacks character. Not a whole lot better than Newcastle. Maybe it’s better on tap...

Little head on top of an actually rather beautiful ruby red/brown beer. Aroma is very malty with a bit of roast. Flavor is not terribly impressive with chocolate being the standout. Medium-light body makes it more drinkable.
