Very good. I can only find it a few places in San Diego, but I when I do I buy everything they have. This is like a Newcastle on Black Tar Heroin. Extremely good beer. Starts nice, finishes with a nap.

Poured from the bottle in Show Low, AZ. NICE dark red crimson color. Nice head thin lacing. Aroma is nice caramel and roasted malt. Flavor has to be one of the best brown ale I’ve had in a long time. Really nice roasted notes with coffee flavors. Which the bitterness blended nicely. Pretty darn good.

Pours a rich dark brown with foamy tan head. Aroma is dark prunes with light smoked malt. Flavor is smooth with more light dark fruits and some glassy off-flavors.

Draft at brewpub. Deep mahogany, nice beige head. Caramel. A little nutty. A little metallic. Perfumey. Light body. Watery. Boring I guess..

Very perfumey taste. A little dry, bitter, not my favorite. The perfume like taste just ruins it for me

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a very small head on there. Nose has hints of nuttiness to it, but is not particularly fragrant. Taste is also just a bit sour, and seems like it’s spoiled a bit. Not very good.

Forgettable brown. Chocolate brown colored. Nutty and chocolate taste. Slightly bitter finish. Not horrific, but just another brown.

10/5/14. 12oz bottle from Exit 18. Nutty aroma, mild chocolate, smells very much like the red of theirs I just tried. Chalky flavor, tannic grains, some nuttiness and chocolate. Meh

Tastes like a sour and a brown ale smashed into one. It's tasty, but sort of bland.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours hazy copper brown with a fizzy off white head. Tastes nutty, like dry roasted malt, light bitter grapefruit. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet roasted malt.
