On nitro tap at (512), pours a deep dark brown with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out light balsamic, some wood and light tannins. Flavour is similar, with toasted malt, light wood and a touch of tannins. Quite malty, with a fairly dry finish. Nice stuff. djd07 (16301) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 30, 2009
On tap at flying saucer. Pours a dark amber with a small creamy light tan head that leaves good sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is a faint roasted malt caramel and raisin. Medium mouthfeel with a roasted malt with brown sugar and a nice bitter finish. Easy to drink hiding the alcohol well. A very good brown ale from (512).

Sample at Hay Merchant in Houston. Dark reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, caramel and a bit of dark fruit in the nose. Medium body with flavors of caramel malt, fruity yeast and touches of chocolate. The finish is sweet with a short toasted malt aftertaste. Decent overall. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 22, 2010

Clear dark brown with a medium foamy beige head. Nose is sweet and nutty and chocolaty with a touch of dark sweet biscuit, like a cocoa flavored hard cookie. Flavor is a reflection of the nose; loads of delightful nuttiness, some sweet earthy cocoa, and a smooth crisp bready finish that’s a touch sweet.
