Served on draft at Capital Alehouse Downtown. Pours a clear brown color with a medium sized tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of chocolate, nuts and faint hops. The taste is fruity with herbal hops, chocolate and nutty malts. Medium bodied.

Medium bodied, dark, mocha flavored with a little hoppy kick. Very flavorful with a nice head. One of my favorite beers. A shame they stopped bottling it.

jethrodium (357) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
On tap at Beer Revolution. Pours a dark brown with a small light tan head that has good retention and leaves some light lacing on the glass. The nutty toffee, earthy hops, and a bit of caramel. The taste has a light sweetness with a bit of nuttiness and toffee. There is also some caramel and a bit of earthiness. The finish has a hint of bitterness and a little sweetness. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Descent brown ale. I think I like this one a little more than Tumbler.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2011
Bottled, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Light chestnut with off white short head. Sweet caramel flavours straight off, sucrose with a hint of maple syrup. Thin on the palate though. A bit of a strange one.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Draft at Fountainhead. Pours a deep reddish brown with an off-tan head. Nose is toasty and nutty, some faint cocoa and faint EKG. Pretty clean nose, mild esters. On taste, a really nice sweetness that is balanced by the bitterness from both the hops and roasted malts. Pretty soft and clean, never roasty. A bit nutty. Pretty nice and imminently drinkable pint for sure.

MadIndian (2305) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2011
Hmm difficult to score. It has a nice mahogany pour with a mild hoppy aroma. The taste was hop, grass and sweet malts, but it was a little thin for me. Still good.

Amber pour with an off white head. The aroma is toasted pumpernickel and mild hints of earthy hops. The flavor is toasted and slightly spicy with hints of caramel and a mild bitter finish. Prickly mouthfeel.
