COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Offered from January 15-through May 1st. This ale has the perfect blend of caramel & chocolate malts, which creates a smooth, nutty palate with ample additions of Willamette hops for their spicy aromatics.

DoubleBubble (107) - Mescal Lakes (wherever that is), Arizona, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Pours a deep brown, with a decent tan head that disappears very quickly. Nice lacing. Aromas of nutty carmel malts. Flavor is not as nutty, or carmel tasting as the smell. Dry roasty aftertaste. Light body beer.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 6, 2007
Pours dark brown with hues of burgundy. A modest head dissappears fast leaving only a faint trace of lace. Faint aromas of roasted cocoa. Medium nectar with ample residual effers creating a cottony soft texture. First notice is a moderate roast component and flavors of dark chocolate, coffee bean. Good balance and mildly hopped. The finish is bittered nicely and has a defined nutty twitch. A good brew.

BelgianXXX (6) - grand rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 2, 2004 does not count
weak aroma. tis indeed rather nutty, taste the chocolate, i would say from the tatse they used some weak chocolate. but does leave you wanting just a little bit more after each sip.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2004
Like many of their beers, this is not well balanced. The malts overpower the hops, and leave you with a strange, choclate-hop taste. Little aroma. Decent mid-brown color. Could not even finish my sample.
