Looks and smells like toast, bitter, thick. Malt in aroma stronger than hops in flavor. Available around New Years.

On Tap at Toronado and Barclay’s many times. Roasted grain flavor through and through. Less hop bite in bitterness/flavor than a lot of other Moonlight brews. Still very enjoyable. You can taste the Brian ships this brew with a piece of actual toast that the bar is supposed to affix to the tap handle. I think that’s really wonderful.

Draft. 2005 (aged a year or more). Rich amber beer with a big light beige head. Bready malt aroma with some toastiness. Rich caramel malt flavor with light roasty backing. Lingering creamy caramel malt flavor. Rich, slightly creamy mouthfeel.

(from notes) (on tap at Cato’s) pint is a gorgeous brown-tinted ruby-red, with a thin collar that leaves great lace. nose is, as the name states, dominantly toasty, with some light chocolate notes and a bit of floral hop character on the sides. flavor is toasty/roasty almost to the point of being a brown porter. good drinking beer, that perhaps becomes a hair one dimensional by the finish (not that you can really fault it - it is called Toast, y’know).

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Tap. Fairly dark color , not much of a head. Not as much burnt flavor as the name would imply. More dominated by malts, molasses and caramel. Aromas hint of some roasted malts but not much so. Quite a nice beer, good body.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Had on tap at Pete’s. Pour is an amber/brown body. Aroma is of toasted malt, some caramel and a bit nutty. Mouthfeel was average. Flavors were somewhat muted but still enjoyable, whith notes of roasted malt ever present. Tasty beer.

unbalanced body reminiscent of corn syrup burned nuts and molasses. some alcohol astringency and odd hop notes in the middle. Very odd slight pvc finish.

the beer was nice and hoppy at first it seemed. i was unaware at first that it was a malt liquor , so i allowed it to warm.. BAD MISTAKE. BAD AS HELL. gross aftertaste when it warms. a slight bit of caramel though.

On tap @ Cato's. Foamy off white head floats on top of a clear amber-brown body. Burnt nutty malt flavor with sufficient bitterness. Another good beer from Moonlight.

mwsf (360) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 20, 2003
Dark reddish-brown color. Quite clear. Nice head. Very fruity aroma with some hops and malt. Toasted malt flavor. Slightly sweet. A bit thinner than I would prefer. Slight creaminess in front that drops out in the middle. Reminds me more of an English winter warmer than malt liquor. Tastes quite English, with possibly a touch of cascade hops buried in there somewhere.
