Bottled. Pours a clear brown with a lacy off-white head. The aroma isn’t pronounced, but it shows lightly floral/citrus with some sweet malty notes behind the hops. Light-bodied with a just a dash of cream in the mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation. The taste is roasty chocolate/caramel/malt/nuts with a dry nutty finish that includes a minor spice contribution from the hops. Absolutely sessionable. elektrogeist (158) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 15, 2006
12oz bottle: Surprisingly good brown ale here, thick lightly brown head and deep dark body. Plenty of thickness in the aroma and flavor departments, lots of roasted malty chocolatey goodness. A very tasty brown ale that I would drink more than regularly if given the chance. chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2006 Nicely balanced, nutty, roasty, not over done. Exceptional flavor and mouth feel. Creamy yet not too sweet and not sticky. I didn’t think I like this style much but this ale is very good. On tap at Laurel Tavern in Madison WI OHJoel (9) - BG, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006 does not count
this beer drinks like a meal, in a good way...a hearty, thick brown ale that goes down easy like a Guinness...I wish you could find it easier (at all?) in the Midwest Kiapepito (110) - Port Angeles, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2006

UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 A good brown ale. Roasty and nutty with a little bit of chocolate and caramel sweetness and some hops to balance it out. sloth (2936) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Small brown head, fair retention with a scattered lace. Clear brown ale with ruby red reflections, attractive. Nose of lightly sweet malts, a little nutty. Body is med/light, soft carbonation. Light roast and chocolate flavors, a touch diacetyl. Finish is lightly sweet malts. Acquired in a trade with Indiana_Red, thanks! crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Thanks Degarth. Pours brown thin head. Kinda too thin, but very drinkable and taste good. Mainly roasted malt and some nutiness along with a touch of sweetness, just a good tasting beer. Burmeister (10) - Bemidji, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Great ale for the money. Actually the beer that made me begin to resent those flavorless lagers us college students tend to drink too much of. Tmoney99 (14973) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Draft in Billings, MT. Dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate sweet nutty aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture. Medium sweet flavor with a smooth sweet finish that lasted. This beer would go well with a good cigar.
