On tap at brewery, visiting my brother this is his fav place. Blonde no good but this one the American Syrong was excellent. Not much aroma but the flavor was incredible. Rich thick malty. Never had a beer quite like this. Thumbs up!

brokensail (10795) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 21, 2010
A: The pour is a light brown color with a thin white head. S: A light hoppiness to it, but quite a bit of chocolate and caramel malt. T: Not quite as sweet as I would have thought, but still a fair amount of caramel and dark fruits. M: Kind of light on the tongue for a "big" beer. Good level of carbonation, but still, a bit thin on the feel. D: Not terrible, but I don’t know if I’d want to drink it again either.
