A full-bodied, brown ale with a rich chocolate taste created from roasted chocolate and caramel malts. Topped with Czech Saaz hops to give it a spicy flavor and aroma.

Deeper brown, tan head. Chocolate malt aroma, sweet molasses undertones. Similar flavor, well-defined malt, underlying sweetness. Medium bodied, very drinkable and well made, but overall it was just kind of boring. Their regular brown ale is better.

Deep garnet in color. Tootsie roll aroma. Chocolate and cherry brown ale with a definate chalkiness. An interesting beer and well crafted, just not my favorite. Thanks to Andre’ for the sample.

Syrupy chocolate nose, nice rolling mouthfeel, slighty roasty chocolate flavor, hint of hops, carmel maltyness, a solid brown and a popular one in Eugene this weekend apparently, gotta love the sales at PC Market..

Pours dark red out of the bottle with a tall light tan head. This brew had a really nice toasty taste to the malt. Aroma was roasty and warm with a faint floral hopping. Very well balanced beer that was very smooth and had a nice thickness to it. This is probably one of my favorite winter releases.

Wow, surprise surprise, pours a dark red. Little to no head. Has a very nice sweet malt aroma with a caramel presence. Awesome roasty nutty taste.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2004
Pours a dark brown color with notes of ruby and a small tan head that lasts the duration of the beer. The aroma is sweet fruity (almost berry like), mollasses, with additional hints of chocolate, roasted coffee, and even alcohol. Watery and an awkward presentation of flavors consisting of chocolate and coffee. Tasting this Winter seasonal in August might have been part of the problem here.

Lubiere (11394) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2004
Dark clear brown ale with a fruity molasse aroma with hops. Very nutty tatse with chocoalte moka overtones and a sweet finish. A bit cloying in the end. Rich body.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2004
Smelled sharp and stout like. poured black and deep as a stout, but with a much larger and more bubbly head. Watery state to begin with which is off putting, but and explosion of flavors follows. Coffee and chocalate notes with a thin finish. Decent beer.

(12oz bottle) Medium beige head atop very dark ruby body. Aroma is medium sweet, raisin, caramel, chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, caramel, light raisin. Creamy medium body that makes this beer wonderfully drinkable. Quite a treat!
