Much better then we would have expected. Tastes more like a craft beer then a domestic. Pours a nice dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. Taste is smooth with a bit of carbonation, some coffee and chocolate and a bit of vanilla not bad at all! Had in the bottle. tfontana (1127) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Manchester Wine and Liquors. Appearance is clear, dark copper with trace sparkle, minimal off-white head, quickly fading to ring, with fair lacing. Aroma is caramel malt, fruit, English hops. Taste is fruit, caramel, English hops. Palate is light-to-medium bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation, and malty, sweet finish. Overall, good for the style. Enjoyable but not complex. Cybercat (6145) - Georgia, USA - MAR 5, 2010
Aroma is fruity and a bit fruit-sweet with a malty undertone. Pours a slightly hazy cinnamon- brown with a decent cream-colored head. Flavor is crisp, malty, slightly yeasty and just a little fruity with just a tiny bit of sweetness. Texture is rather smooth and fizzy, rather typical. Worth a try. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle @ home, thanks vjl! Aroma is roasty malt, nutty, caramel. Very much like when steeping.
Flavour is roasty malty, roasty clings on a bit.
Pretty good considering. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 9, 2012
Bottled. Mild aroma, lightly grainy. Very clean. Decent body, only a touch of sweetness. No real off notes. A touch of chocolate. Not particularly flavorful, but very easy drinking.

Aroma is dark grains and mild sweetness. The flavor is caramel/toffee, mild/medium sweetness and tangy/fruit finish. UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - APR 5, 2016
Bottle from total wines, pours dark with tan edges, quick light tan head. Mostly biscuit and roasted malt, slight sweetness. Light to medium body. jimhilt (2626) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Pours a three finger cream head that fades quickly to a thin layer, leaving some lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Mystery bits in bottom of glass that may or may not be yeast. Light carbonation and medium bodied. Faint malty nose. Flavor reminds me of honey cough syrup. Far better than their Lager. $1.85 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma. j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Toast and a touch of roasted malt on the nose. Gentle malt and a touch of roast. Slightly nutty, toast, more malt. Finishes with a slight sweetness and roasty malt. Decent and easy drinking. Pleasantly surprised. Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear dark brown pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is slightly roasty, some sugary malts, molasses and licorice. Flavor is slightly bitter, slightly sweet, quite roasty and a bit bready. Overall quite nice.
