COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The emphasis is on malt flavors, using hops only as a balance to smooth the roast nut character. Note: replaced by Downtown Brown.

Reddish-brown with an off-white head. Notes of caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Creamy tasting of mostly coffee and some nuttiness. Slightly bitter finish. Good.

Not much of a head and the body was dark brown and clear. Aroma was nutty and roasted. Flavour was slightly nutty and some roasted malts. Still found the beer to be a bit thin on the finish. Easy drinker though.

Toasty carmel malt nose. Lightly roasted malt flavor with hints of coffee.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2003 Nice head and lacing. Caramel, and roasted malts provide the aroma and flavor. While water provides the body...
