Aroma was notibly nutty. Body feature low carb with a dark brown cola color. Head was miniscule and rapidly faded. Flavor was very roasty, slightly nutty, and hoppy. I thought it could use a little bit more sweet maltiness and the texture should be a little creamier and less watery. Finish was a bland burnt flavor. Pretty good overall but not outstanding.

UPDATED: AUG 3, 2003 Wonderful dark brown/ruby color with a large, thick tan head. The aroma definitely did not come out until the beer warmed quite a bit, then it was full of nutty, chocolate, caramel, bock-ish maltiness. The flavor was sweet...chocolate, hazelnuts, caramel, sarsparilla (whatever is in that stuff), and a nice roasted malt. This beer achieves greatness with its aftertaste...pure chocolate/rootbeer goodness. This is a magnificent brew...worthy of everything great said about it in these reviews.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 12, 2003
Sweet, malty aroma like a doppelbock. Bit of chocolate with a nutty nose - like a brazil nut. Mocha and nice aromatic hops. Copper brown with slight haze. Light tan foamy lacing head. Light medium carb and silky watery body. A bit sweet up front. Deep, rich malts but not cloying. Finishes with a nice tang then smooth nutty chocolate after. Very smooth - no bitterness. A very good brown ale with great chocolate nutty taste, though the watery finish detracted a bit.

A very great and distinct nut flavor to this from the start to the end. The best thing at the otherwise joke yardhouse. Nice woodsey malts with very crisp nut flavor. Great brown color and the usual amount of head. The taste is very nice, and very noticable, no guessing here.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAY 5, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2003 Dark malty ale with a nice head. Hazelnut flavor clearly present. A solid brown ale that I would try.

GreatSatanUSA (107) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 4, 2003
A nice toasty ale, good malted flavor, definite nuttiness in there. Not really "sweet" despite the maltiness, a characteristic I liked. Had it on tap.

Verne (261) - Enumclaw, Washington, USA - APR 29, 2003
Dark dark amber thick large bubbled head sweet malty aroma. Mildly sweet nutty flavor with a bit of toasted bread pushing the hop envelope for a brown. A marvelous brown ale the best I have ever tried

UPDATED: APR 26, 2005 Yummy... I had this one on tap in the northwest. At first taste, I wasn’t sure if I liked it. Half way through I decided this is the greatest brown ale. I am rating it so high because of the novelty and the goodness

Had this on draft at the Grey Lodge in Phila. For once a brown with flavor, I tend to find Browns boring. Good malt flavor.
