Pours a bright, hazy dark amber-copper with a good frothy off white head that lasts and leaves a sticky lacing in my glass, bready caramel aromas, nutty, buttery, caramel flavors , medium body with a smooth and creamy mouthfeel, finishes clean and dry.
Many thanks to erzengel for the bottle! Pours a clear brown with orange highlights and a tan cap. The smell is roast, malty, some fruit. The taste is about as it smells with some molasses and a dry finish. Light+ body with fine carbonation. bhensonb (15487) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 14, 2014

The beer pours out a dark rootbeer brown color with a minimal soapy off-white head. Nearly zero head retention. Aroma is lightly vinous, some dirty penny, earthy, and a bit of light smokey toasted bread note. Flavor is light twangy malts, a bit earthy, a touch of raisins and toffee but all in all it’s very weak. Lightbodied and watery palate. The tongue feels like it’s been tenderized a bit after drinking (a touch numb). Easy to drink. jonas (7748) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - JAN 11, 2009
