A nice brown ale, there’s plenty of sweetness to it, Caramel, slight roastedness, nutty, but it is hopped well enough for me also, a solid brew, enjoyable.Thanks to Duane for the bottle! hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2007
bottle shared at volgons. Aroma seems a bit off on this one, taste is malty and lightly sweet, but lightly stale also. watery body. LyndaNova (532) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2007
Cold 12oz cold bottle: Pours a cola color with a small amount of bubbles around the edges. Light malts, light spice and bread notes. Light to medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Watery ending - malty and lightly sweet. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 23, 2007
Bottle: Clear ruby with a thin white head, rich malts in the aroma, stale malts in the taste, lightly sweet from beginning to end, medium bodied with a thin aftertaste, this is either a bad bottle or overrated. RJBennett (52) - Hibbing, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2007

Malty and smooth with a dark head. Creamy finish and very obvious spice and bitter layers. Had this one in my travels through national park country. Smooth and unique, very drinkable. troopie (2323) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2007
Very Dark brown with small head. Much lacing. Medium body with creamy feel. Malty slightly hoppy finish with sweetness. buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Thanks to BuckeyeBoy for this. Very dark brown in color with a small off white head. Aroma and flavor of malts, bitter chocolate and a good amount of hops. A pretty good overall brown. boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JAN 21, 2007
Pours a clear but dark brown laden with chocolatey looking swirls. A fat tan cap forms atop the body and sticks around for the duration. Aroma is sweet chocolate and caramel malts with just hints of toffee and hops. Upon first sip I realize this is going to be far too easy to drink, so I order another, as I’ll be done by the time it arrives. It’s ten below in Milwaukee on this eve and this beer will warm me up; I’m going to help it along a little. Flavor is mellow and good. Tastes of chocolate, nutty caramel, toasted grain and again a little toffee. Finishes with a crispness I’ll attribute to a reasonable hop dose, light and satisfying, definitely an upper echelon brown ale. Palate is thin as expected but well rounded and very soft. Extremely easy to drink, I believe I had four before braving the cold again.
