COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark brown color, with a balanced aroma of roasted malts and Northwest-grown hops. The sweetness of the ale, crystal, and chocolate malts blend beautifully with the assertive flavors of Cascade and Mt. Hood hops.

rbrazell (1701) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 1, 2013
Deep amber brown pour with a small white head. Aroma is grape cough syrup and light toasted malts. Flavor presents itself much better with toffee, light powdery chocolate and earthiness. Medium bodied with touch of sweetness. Pass.

jbruner (2419) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Pours a translucent reddish brown from the bottle with thin tan head and light lacing. Aroma is medicinal, kind of like a grape cough syrup with a toasted malt back. Taste is much better than the nose, like a lagered brown, with a bubbly sweet mouth. Meh.

SpringsLicker (3163) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2013

Fatehunter (1334) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Pours a nice finger of tan head on a clear, brown body. Aroma is a faint toasted malt. The taste is a roasted malt throughout, a little nutty and mild bitterness in the finish. Smooth texture, moderate carbonation and medium body. Great flavor and balance throughout. The smell was the only letdown for being so faint.
