Not that bad of a beer. Waaaay to chocolatey and roasty for the style, it is more of just an american brown lager or something stupid like that.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draught at the 2010 Wisconsin Craft Beer Festival in Chilton, WI. Pours a clear cola brown colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates to a thin ring and spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel and chocolate malt, a hint of coffee and a touch of leather. Taste is light to medium bodied with flavors of dark multi-grain malt, some grassy hops and a touch of roasted nuts. Finish is semi-dry, some metallic texture and then a roasted nutty aftertaste.

On tap. Brownish amber color, flat with no head. Aroma is of sweet and toasted malts. Flavor is thin and overly caramel for the style. Light dry/bitter finish. Next...

Or a dry stout. Draught at the Milwaukee location. Black. Dry with grain, and moderately roasted. Thin palate, it needs more body, but it is smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the Delafield location. Poured deep brown with a well-retained, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up soft chocolate and bready notes upfront with a little earth and faint floral hoppage around.. quite enjoyable. The flavor found toasty chocolate, coffee, and lesser molasses surrounded by earthy accents.. hints of smoke on the back.. tasty and well-balanced. Light-bodied with great use of malts in here.. higher carbonation moved it well across the palate.. dry and well-balanced. This was a great surprise!

1.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Draught at the brewpub (Downtown Milwaukee location). Clear brown color with thin white head that left no lace. Smelled of brown sugar and milk chocolate. Flavor was similar with a light roasty accent. Unfortunately there was a strange industrial cleaner-like bitterness. Watery mouth feel. Not well done.
