Smooth dark ale. Nice flavor with just a hint of chocolate. So far, my favorite beer!

Now here we have a sleeper. To my surprise, this beer had a refreshing chocolatey flavor and a smooth aftertaste. An all around pleasant experience, and not real expensive, either. I agree with the other people, it is a damn good barbecue beer.

This had a clean crisp flavor to it that I really enjoyed. Smooth; a good ’drinking’ beer.

A delight to find on tap, this is a great choice for a night out.

UPDATED: SEP 18, 2005 I LOVE THIS... I was shocked at how good this stuff was considering most of the ratings were low to average. Sweet, roasted, tasty malts. Very good! Serve on the colder end of cool, but not ice cold.

Not a rush of flavor but still deserves a lil credit.

I really like this one. A good full flavor with plenty of balance for sweetness and malts. I was impressed.

Rating applies to 1960-1968 production, which included some corn. Current production is regrettably a wholly different experience, but at the time it was truly the best beer on tap on the Continent!
