On tap @ the brewpub. Pours brown with amber highlights and lasting thin tan head. The aroma is nutty and caramel along with malt roastiness. The taste is roasty malts mixing with yummy caramel and a bit of dark fruitiness. It then becomes nutty with mildly drying roasted maltiness and more caramel goodness into the finish. Way in the background is a very complimentary pin hop note. This is tasty.

carruthm (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2008
Pours really dark for an amber, an opaque brown that absorbs light. Leaves a thin tannish head with good lacing. Aroma of deep malt with a nice bitter taste. Solid finish, but nothing in particular stands out.

Pours extremely dark with a very dark ruby color to it. Whatever head is there after a very firm pour quickly goes away. Nose is firm wood, nut, and caramel. Lots of deep red wood mostly though. Flavor is a faint, but noticeable nut on top of a robust leafy and woody character with a strongly pronounced sweetness. Feel is fairly syrup like on the liquid and low on the carbonation. Overall very drinkable. A good brew. A bit lacking it seems in certain areas, but still pleasurable.

duffman462 (173) - Gainesville, Florida, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Very nice coffee color. Chocolate and dates on the nose. Body is nice chocolate malt, balanced with some fruit flavors, and just a bit of hop bitterness. Very refresing and enjoyable brew!

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 25, 2007
It’s Amber. Dark amber, one might say. Thin beige head. Earthy, sweetish aroma - molassess, maybe? Some mild hop crispness at first, then some nice smooth sweet notes. Some caramel and chocolate hiding in there, too. Perhaps some herbal notes, as well.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Brown in color with a tan head. Aroma is light roast and chocolatey malts. Flavor is mostly a pleasant subtle sweetness with an incredibly smooth finish. It also has light to medium carbonation and is not heavy at all. A sessionable dar ale. It reminded me more of a brown than an amber.
