Purchased at Binnyís in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home recovering from frustrating work. Meh, this isnít very good. Appearance is a syrupy dark brown, relatively clear, not much head. Aroma of chocolate malt and caramel. Taste is more syrupy than anything, moderate carbonation, like a light chocolate soda, itís just not very good.

Brouwerij (914) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours red brown with quickly settling tan head, almost no lace. Aroma is toasted, nutty, toffee/caramel malt, sweet. Flavor is mild malt, toasted, toffee, with a sweet fruity finish, nutty malt aftertaste. Aroma is mild on malt, flavor is even milder. Soft carbonation, light body. Mild.

plinythederek (22) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Cracked this rude boy open out of a standard 12 oz bottle. Pours out a dark copper brown. Very slight sweet malt aroma on this one. The taste is standard for a nut brown. A lot of malt right away with a little hops to finish it. But really not a great finish with this beer. Once you swallow it the taste is gone. Thatís it. It doesnít linger leaving you wanting more. Very light and not much to it. If you love Browns, you could slam a bunch of these jokers. But that would be all theyíd be good for. Slamming. Not a great beer. Iíll be skanking away from this one in the future. IMO son.

Bottle, Chester Beer & Wine. Dark brown pour. What aroma? Oh dear rank metallic taste. Drain pour. A waste of time importing dross like this. Buster Bloodvessel is much fatter than that as well.

UncleKorm (731) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle poured a clear brown hue w/ small quickly and fully diminishing head. Subtle sweet malty aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light acidic finish. Tastes are chocolate, tannins, bread, and lightly roasted malt. Light to medium bodied, dry texture, soft carbonation.
