drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Had on tap at the brewpub. Aroma and flavor smell of coffee and dark malts, a bit much with chocolate as well for the style. Not bad, though.

Pours medium brown with a nice full head. Nice hints of nuts and malt that show off a deeper roast in the mid palate. It finished nice and well rounded.

jgb9348 (4625) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 28, 2009
Deep brown coloured body with a thinnish tan head. Aroma of nuts (of course), caramel, toffee and malt. Medium-bodied; Strong nuts in the flavours, apricots, spice and a bit of malt dash the beer. Aftertaste shows some sweetness, but mainly the bitterness of the nuts. Overall, not a good beer - the worst of the lot for me. I sampled this beer on draught at Tampa Bay Brewing Company’s Brewpub in Tampa (Ybor City), Florida on 10 November 2007.

Cask @ TBBC. Pours deep amber, with thick beige head. Aroma is hoppy and grainy. Taste is grainy with some spices and malts, light hoppy aftertaste with some sweet honey? Some nice toffee/coffee roastiness. The cask gives the beer some extra resinous and light fruity (apple) note.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 1, 2007
On tap @ brewery. Pours a clear deep copper with somewhat creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet with caramelized malts, malt astringency and pale malts. The taste hits first with a streak of malt astringency that ties into roasted malts, a hint of caramelized malts, faint chocolate malts and mild charred – burnt – cindered malt dust. That last part could be the chocolate malts I taste. This seems to be a nice brown. The malt astringency has its place but here it could be slightly reduced. But that may be getting too picky.
