A dark brown ale deriving maltiness from two types of American crystal malts, yet not overly heavy in body. Rounded with a nutty flavor from chocolate malt and a hint of black patent malt. Finished with aromatics from Czech Saaz hops.

wildbeercat (354) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 29, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: Kind of a mild chocolate and toffee. Appearance: Dark ruby/brown translucent body with a light tan, creamy head. Very nice lacing. Taste: Not nutty. Iím not sure how to describe it. Itís kind of like soy sauce, or hot sauce-y. Itís better than it sounds, but itís not very good. Palate: Pretty light bodied. Abrupt finish. Overall: Kind of disappointing. I was looking forward to a nice, nutty brown ale. I tried to keep an open mind, but I didnít care for this one too much.

RedSox2004 (1587) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 6, 2013
Pours medium brown with a modest head and ok lacing. Aromas of toast, slightly burned butter biscuits and caramel. Flavors are similar, and include brown sugar and a barely perceptible hops bitterness that wasnít on the nose. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel, medium carbonation, and a pleasant sweetness in the finish.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 6, 2013
12oz bottle. Small head fades to a collar. Surprisingly dark, almost black. Aroma is sweet and malty, definitely bready. Taste reminds me of a czech dark beer, kind of similar to a german dunkel as well. It must be the czech hops. Simple, pretty toasty, easy to drink. Soft palate, lots of linger. Good.

JStax (4587) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a very dark brown with good clarity and a thick darker beige head of foam. The aroma is very roasty and has some coffee influences and dark chocolates. The taste is roasty and very malt forward. This beer far exceeds my expectations. This beer is very good.
