From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Smoky malt aroma. Black strong in alcohol and a little rich on the palate with a crisp and slightly dry malt finish.

Deep brown pour with hints of ruby red. Burnt malt aroma domintates. Chocolate/cherry flavor stands out. Medium bodied with low carbonation.

WeeHeavySD (3360) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2009
A beer, my girlfriend has always loved, and not that I wasn’t trying everything they had, but I knew I had to have this. Pours blackish with a 1 finger tan head. Nose is deep malty. Taste has some nice choconess, syrupy and pretty decent.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Smells like burnt rubber tires, or maybe burnt out clutch. Yuck. Rubbery, chemical flavor, with a mild chocolate. Low carbonation, a bit nutty in the finish. A bit of an odd-ball beer. I appreciate the effort, I guess.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2009
Dark brown beer with a thin tan head. Aroma is lightly phenolic as well. A bit of earthy chocolate in the nose. Malty sweetness with more caramel obvious through the middle. Slightly astringent toward the back of the palate. The body is initially full-bodied, but it seems to thin the more of it you drink. It’s okay, but it’s no brown ale....

blipp (5857) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Draft. Pours deep brown with a thin beige head. Light sweet malt aroma with a hint of roast. The flavor has a nice sweet/roasted malt balance with a hint of hops in the finish.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Tap at the brewpub. Aroma of smoke, sweet malt, coffee. Flavor has a hint of chocolate, more smoke, sweet malt. A touch sweet, but not disastrously so.

dark brown with white head. flavor of some chocolate malt, not much depth. dry finish that leaves a somewhat acidic aftertaste. pretty standard brown. ordinary at best

LilBeerDoctor (3414) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a pretty thick tan head. Aroma of sweet malt. Flavor of crystal malt, roasted malt. Sessionable, certainly, but this is TOO sweet (a common theme among Nodding Head beers it seems...). 6/4/6/3/14 (3.3/5)

santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2009
Pretty good for a brown. Simple, clean, and easy to drink. I’m really impressed by how flawless Nodding Heads brews are, meaning no off-flavors in sight. I could drink this all night.
