Pours deep red with very little, short lasting off-white head. Nose is malt and coffee. Taste is malt, a nice amount of hops, some coffee, some caramel... and a decent smooth finish. Not bad overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber scotch colour, off-white ring. Very light aroma of earthy hops, single-malt scotch, caramel malt. Light acidity on the palate, earthy, oily, light leafy bitterness. Nothing particular, despite all due respect, this would definitely be rated at least .2 lower if it werenít a 3F. The creamy medium-full mouthfeel and soft carbonation is great though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. No freshness date seen anywhere.
Poured out a deep chocolate brown color, with amber highlights.
Thick tan colored head at first, that slid back to a thick lacing down the sides of the glass. Aromas are of chocolate malts, malted milk balls, Brachís caramel candies, and slight earthy hops.
Tastes are mostly of malts, with chocolate espresso notes as well.
Yeasty to a fault, but a clear brew all the same. The flavors of the yeast are there, but none of the cloudiness associated with it.
Caramel candies and warming alcohols make up the remainder of the flavors. Very warming, slight, brief but fleeting hops bitterness at the very end of the beer. Finishes somewhat sweet, but well balanced. It could use a touch more hops, however, for the style.
A decent effort, but not the best Iíve had.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 As advertised, if you like malts, youíll like this beer. It has a nice reddish-brown color with a healthy, lasting head and the malt aroma dominates. Tempered only slightly with hops, this gives a huge malty mouthful that goes down oh so sweetly. Great brew.

Bottle Pours a nice clear mahogany with a modest off white head. Good even lacing. Aroma is a rich slightly sweet, pitted fruit and dark malts. Flavors are a nice balance of malt and slight chocolate notes. Feel is medium heavy, and the finish is very smooth and soft. Very little bitterness.

This is a top notch beer for malt lovers.Very,very flavorfull,and malty with enough hops to keep it in balance.
Looks about as good in a glass as you can expect a beer to look.
Kinda high in the abv department,so be carefull.
Has a mild aroma,but what aroma it has is very nice.

Dark brown color with a red tint. Small head and an excellent flavor. A great ale to sit back and relax with. Didn;t really taste the chocolate, but the hops and malt were very present and the finish was spectacular.

Hmm... opened with barely a squeek and poured with no head. Itís carbonated, but barely. I guess shipping can take itís toll :P Pours an elegant, crystal clear-but-dark brown that shines red when held up to light. Very neat. Aroma is very mild, but thatís probably due to the utter lack of a head I got. A vigorous swirl at half glass pulls up dates, chocolate, smoke and malt. Nice. Flavor is mellow and rich- chocolate again, malt, smoke, dark bread, caramel. Again, itís a bit flat, and the finish seems to coat my mouth substantially. All in all a good beer from FFF... but whoís suprised about that?

Deep brown/black. Nice tan head. Caramel malt aroma. Nice malty flavors with some toffee, and a little kick of hops at the finish.
