COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The complexity of this beer is fantastic. Rich, but not too heavy on the palate, semi-sweet dark fruit finish.

(Rating #9,500) Draft... Pours clear and very dark with flashes of crimson and a small, wispy, white head. The aroma is all about café con leche - milk chocolate and Cuban-roast coffee. Medium to full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is tragically acidic and soapy. Infected, tangy, raspy finish. I’d like to revisit this one, although I can’t do much better than drinking it on tap at the source.

chinchill (2128) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2014
12 oz can purchased and consumed in south FL. Aroma: lightly sweet; simple but pleasant medium and light roasted grains. hints of caramel. Flavor: slightly sweet but well balanced for style. Lacks complexity but has a solid malty flavor with no defects. Feel: medium body and carbonation. O: good version of style.

Draft. Pours brown with a beige head. Lightly roasted malts, some chocolate sweetness, light nutty notes, and a quick malty finish. Pretty good.

Tobacco and coffee on the nose, some hop characteristics as well. Sweet malt and some citrus hop on the flavor. Very light body. Tasty brown. Cheers, Miami

Chocolate up front then a metallic watery finish. Not terrible but not great.

kathouse (1105) - Nevada, USA - APR 12, 2014
Not a bad brown ale. Typical chocolate, coffee, and toasted malt base. Medium body. Good carbonation. Very drinkable.

Poured a dark amber brown color with aromas of malt and earth. Flavors are light malt, some earth and a touch of nuts. Not the best brown ale out there... not sure how old the keg is.

Awesome beer. Almost in between a porter and a brown ale. Very rich full favored beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fritz123 (1119) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Draft our from the Riverside Market Cafe in Ft. Lauderdale. American pint. Deep, dark brown pour with a foamy thick head. Heavy malt, roasted malt and toffee aroma with some raisins/prunes. Taste was serious malts, prunes, toffee, caramel, and butter. Very watery though. Kind of an odd metallic aftertaste. Ok.

Poured from a tap. Brown color, medium off white head. Wet towel and butterscotch smell. Full bodied slight roasted malt and heavily carbonated. Not a bad beer.
