Five malts create the well-rounded caramel and coffee flavors in our version of this ale.

aroma is good fudge tempered with peanuts or other salty ilk as backdrop. appearance is opaque RIS levels with reducing head, leaving film and substantial ring. flavor is metallic fudge up front followed by more peanuts and fleeting notes of dark raspberries or grapes. the third try for this brewer finally gives a drinkable mouthfeel - low carb but full enough, especially for style to reduce gag reflex.

Watery, better than their stout at least. Poured at the brewpub in a pint glass. Dark reddish brown with moderate tan head. Abrupt bitter finish. Bartender said this was his favorite Trailhead offering, and it is ok when paired with food. Not a beer I would seek out otherwise.

Very dark brown. Nice tan head. Surprisingly creamy. Slight roasting. I was expected at least a hint of nut. Pretty bland, but ok

This beer has a sort of coffee note to it with a nice after taste. It goes really well with their sausage platter.

Draft at the brewpub in a sampler. Pours a dark, clear cola brown color with a small tan head that leaves some trailing lace. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted nuts, syrup, and mild coffee. Really sweet for a brown ale. Light-medium bodied, with a syrupy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Just too sweet for me.

Tasted 3/31/11. Sampler from the Brewpub. Dark yet filtered with a brainy ring of tan head. Nice layering on the head. Aromas of mild coffee and fudge, toast and subtle maple. Medium bodied, rounded and mild on the effervescence, but has a good amount of flavor and complexity. Toasty fudge flavors with a touch of dark fruit and maple syrup. A nice subtle cocoa note. A noticeable, yet tamed coffee acidity. Nice cloying finish. I like it!
