UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. Dark brown pour with almost no head. Coffee aroma and taste. Kind of a watery Bellaire Brown but a good session beer nonetheless.

Very biscuity with some slight chocolate flavors and slight metally tartness. Not particularly into this one.

Bottle from mikem409, thanks Mike! Pours a root beer color with a rapidly disappearing head. Virtually no lace. Aroma has chocolatey and caramel malts. Further down in the glass, bits of brown sugar and some earthiness show through. Taste is of sweet caramel, light brown sugar, some molasses and fruit, and something vegetal. Medium bodied with no alcohol presence. Finishes sweet and lightly vegetal, just without much depth. More than was expected; the taste needed to live up to the aroma to be better. 13.1

This one pours a mildly dark brown color with a strong bubbly head. Has a strange hop caramel aroma. It has a watery taste overall with a slight carbonation. A dirty wheat note. Very thin feel. Not much flavor at all. A deep dark malt flavor. A mild pepper spice back feel. A very light drink. Not one of my favorites of the night.

Soft dark chocolate brown pour. Creamy mocha tan head. Weird aroma, chocolate milk and apple skins, papery with some sweetness. Not too crazy about the flavor, papery and roast stretched too thin. Kind of watery. Lean with some chalky notes.

ESBob (358) - Indiana, USA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. Poured a deep dark brown with slight mocha head. Aroma is sweet chocolate malt with some roast bitterness. Taste is a roasty malt with toffee and coffee roast flavors as well. Smooth drinker with thin to slightly oil mouthfeel.

Onslow (1164) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Darker brew with small tan head. Aroma of toasted malt, slight metallic. Taste is toasted malt, sweet at the stat, more pronounced toast at the end. Mild, yes. Tasty.

Draft at Ashley’s. Pours a deep brown with thin beige head. Notes of roast, chocolate, light ester. Medium light body. Good mild

DrSilverworm (6375) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2014
12oz bottle. Thanks to umich03jm! Mostly clear, very dark red color. Appears brown. Thin khaki head. Few short ridges of lace. Lighter body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good nutty, kind of light dark chocolatey aroma. Nice light earthy hop. Good moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Solid, flavorful, crushable, easy drinking dark mild ale. Good one to wash my sandwich down with. May have gone down too quick, maybe.

This is a good light beer that still quenched my thirst for ale with flavor, overall something I would enjoy again
