VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - MAY 26, 2008
From the Fenway location - Poured a clear, dark reddish brown in color with a small light tan head. Aroma was of dark roasted malts with a hint of some chocolate and mild of hops. Flavor was slightly sweet with notes of caramel and flowery hops mixed in with the roasted malts. Palate was surprisingly thin, but overall a very drinkable beer.

Had on tap at the Boston Brookline location at the suggestion of the bartender. Appeared a brownish red. Had a sweet smell of nuts and malts. Taste was also of sweet mal and nuts with some mild hops coming to the front in the finish.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Tap at Canal Street Location: Amber/brown pour with a thin tan head. Chocolaty, roasted aroma; reminiscent of tootsie rolls. The upfront flavor is slightly flowery, soapy, almost mildly tart, which leads to a roasty brown sugar like finish. The flavors arent really harmonious or balanced, but its still not bad.

Sampled with Stegosaurus during our second Boston Tour. Served at salem location. Brown pour with off white head. Slight roasted/caramel aroma. Taste was pretty much the same. A little thin in body but not bad at all.

Tap @ Fenway location. Pours a nice brown color with a tan head. Aroma is faint chocolate and malt. Taste is the same, though like seemingly every other beer from Beer Works it has a very nice aroma and a watery taste.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 17, 2007
On tap at Fenway location. Dark brown with ruby-orange highlights. Smells like chocolate and hazelnuts. A beer full of chocolatey goodness with a very smooth palate. Good roasted flavor balances the chocolate.

JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2007
This is a nice brown ale. It pours cloudy brown with small head. It gives notes of chocolate and coffee on the nose and these flavors drive into the palate with the hint of hazel nut. The finish is nice and long.

Dogbrick (12770) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Sample at Beer Works Fenway: Pours a dark chestnut color with a medium beige head that burns off steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malts and nuts. Medium, smooth body with chocolate, malt and nut flavors. Slight hops do not do enough to counter the sweetness. The finish is sweet and lingering malt. Average all around.
