Crushed with Jakebra. Little roast, little sweet malt, some may call it honey, on the nose. Flavor is some poopy roast, and some poop. Could be worse. Could be raining. But it’s not raining, so this brew still sucks.

Looks good. There is very little honey in aroma or flavor. A bit of malt, no nuts, some sweetness but not from the honey. Ehh.

I just dont get the bad ratings. I mean, its a brown ale - what are you expecting? The Abyss? Overall a nice chocolatey brown ale with sweet honey notes. Nice slightly bitter finish.

This was better than the amber, a little. It had good roasty notes, a good chocolate flavor, but was too sweet. It also had a crazy-foamy head. It took me a while to drink due to the sweetness.

Sweet chocolate nose. Deep dark brown color, small head. Some stale raisin sweetness, overly bitter. Maybe a bit too carbonated, lingering finish that was not terribly pleasant. Brown Ales are not my favorite, even so, this is not a very good one.

tap at the brewpub - Pours clear dark brown with a thin head. It really smells like honey. The taste is similar. There’s a lot of honey in this one along with the caramel malt flavors. It’s bubbly on the palate and very sweet. It’s not bad though maybe it could be balanced better.

Had this beer on 3/30/1999. Color is a deep brown with low carbonation and a thin head. Aroma is a nice sweet roasted malt scent. Taste is rich and sweet. It starts with a medium body that goes down heavy with a bit of bite. The finish is a sweet malt flavor with a rich alcohol taste to it and a light bitterness.

(Bottle) Pours a brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of light caramel. Taste is pretty similar, with some toffee. Sweet, but thin bodied. Not particularly well balanced either, but I would drink it again.
