Lubiere (10455) - Ottawa, Ontario, - JUN 7, 2013
A redfisn brown porter with a thin brown head. In aroma, a weird biscuit malt with light boiled veggies. In mouth, a light nutty roasted malt with grassy hops, so-so.

Medium tan head with clumpy bubbles. Dark ruby brown. The slightest faint chocolate atoms. You really have to work for it though. Slight chocolate taste but the pallate has a hole in it. Not a full feeling body. Nice flavorful session beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Grumbo (630) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle brought home from US by Paul. Beer pours a deep dark brown colour with a small tan colour head. Aroma of roasted chocolate, nutty, with coffee. Light sweetness, hint of sour. Body fairly light, oily texture, carbonation has a little fizz to it. Finish is a dry, and a bit sour with bitter coffee.

When in Utah, buy Wasatch. Not a bad pour, nutty brown and lightly aromatic off the top. A huge tan head covers the liquid about two fingers high, but sinks quickly into the brew and almost disappears; the lacing on the glass, significant and consistent. The aroma is nutty cocoa, as is the flavor, but unfortunately once you tip the glass, any richness in the aroma is drowned by the watered down taste of the brew. Any sweetness or bitter is hidden behind the non-flavor and I am having a difficult time experiencing anything between the aroma and the aftertaste. It’s almost as if the liquid disappears in the short interim between. It is easy to drink, smooth as nothing, and the very low abv does allow one to experience as much as one can handle. I will most likely not handle this one again.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Darker reddish brown color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is straightforward with a mellow chocolate flavor, some caramel, light roast and hop bitterness. Medium to light bodied, pretty simplistic but still ok.

deekyn (1254) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 20, 2014
A- pours an effervescent cola brown with lighter edges and a finger of latte colored head. S- dirt and coca powder are strong with hints of cheap chocolate, soggy coffee grounds roasted malts and some caramel. Wet grasses and zinc too. M- clean light to medium body. T- flat soda and some honey. Cocoa and dirt with grasses in the middle. Some chocolate but almost like it was an afterthought that was half hearted even then. Ending is sustained with bitter and sharp minerals and follow-up grasses. General hops and some watered down malts. The label was entertaining too.

Reddish brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of chocolate malts, faint coffee, roasted nuts. Taste of roasted malts, faint chocolate, slight nuttiness, faint smoke. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel, higher carbonation and slightly dry finish. Not all that great.
