UncleKorm (731) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2013
On tap at brewery, poured a dark hazy brown w/ a thick tan head slowly diminishing to a nice cap w/ good lacing. Moderate aromas of earth, nuts, roast, and cocoa. Initial flavor is a light sweet w/ a faint bitter of short duration in the finish.Tastes are roasted rye and roasted malts with an earthy nutty finish. It is a drinkable brown with enough depth to keep it interesting. Medium bodied, average carbonation, and a pleasant mouthfeel.

3fourths (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2012
fairly pleasant nose of typical smells of brown malt (chocolate, toast, light coffee) with a nicely rustic dusting of cocoa powder. very expressive nose with a lot of life, as opposed to the overly-yeasty and muddled saison. medium body, lightly grainy approach with some carbonation fizz before a more soft-textured back end and finish. expressive oat and beefy wheat flavors are in play with a hot cocoa and light char dark malt quality. seems fresh. not overly clean, but not dirty or off-smelling or tasting at all. shows promise that they can do a world classic style in such a way.

arminjewell (5995) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brown pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of butter, caramel, hints of slight nuts, earth, some hints of rotten veggies as well. Taste is sweet caramel, toffee, butter, some nasty veggies, finishing bitter, and dry. Something was off.
