daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2008
Brown and hazy. Small beige head. Aroma is muted...malty, nutty and some light notes of chocolate. Flavor is really good, surprising after a pretty mundane aroma. Malty, chocolate, frutiy, nutty and sweet. Smooth and easy drinking. I would drink this any time!

hopscotch (8781) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Sparkling clear, copper ale with a large, frothy, off-white head... which diminishes to a small, creamy, lasting head. The aroma is all about milk chocolate, pecans and caramel... a turtle, basically. The flavor is well-balanced, chocolatey and nutty. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, chocolatey, dry finish.

Poured a medium and see through brownish/amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, nuts, and toasted malts. Tastes of toffee, caramel, nuts and toasted malts. Had a light citric quality to it as well. Lively body.
