I think the picture of wheat on the bright yellow label led me to believe this was a light colored wheat beer. I was very surprised to see the brown ale that poured from the bottle. Once I got over my initial shock, I noticed it poured from the bottle with a nice thick tan head atop the dark brown beer. Tasted and smelled like chocolate with a slightly hoppy finish. Not bad, just not what I expected. They really should tell you on the bottle what type of beer is inside.

Bottle. Dark brown in color with a creamy light brown head. A light coffee hint to the toasted malts. Fairly robust for a typical brown ale.

Has a very dark brown color with some carbonation and a roasted/coffee smell. Taste is of roasted malts/coffee and finishes slightly bitter. Overall not a bad brown ale, but nothing spectacular.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 30, 2003
Nice and dark color with a good head. Pungent and sweet aroma. Tasted malty and unassuming. Not complex, almost a little flat (in the flavor, not carbonation). Burnt finish with hoppy leave.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 29, 2003
Pours with a dark brown/black body topped by a medium thick tan head with a good amount of lace. Weak malty aroma with a slight smokiness. Not much of a nose to this beer. Slighty smokey/roasted malt flavor with a hint of coffee and hops and a touch of sweetness. medium to full bodied and smooth.
