Bottle. I drink a metric ass ton of this beer. Pours a dark brown with garnet hues and an average sized creamy head. A nice clean boquet with aromas of ripe apple, pear, roasty malt, and English toffee. A nice smokey, nutty sweet flavor with very little bitterness at all. More toffee. Good body and mouthfeel, solid carbonation. I really love this beer. STEPHENDR (478) - California, USA - MAY 12, 2006

pours root beer brown, with a fluffy, long lasting beige head.
Thin rings of lace are left behind.
Aroma is light caramel/toffee, and a little bit of bubblegum sweetness.
Flavor is caramel and chocolate, watered down coffee.
Simple but nice, easy drinking session brew.
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2007 Pours a full sized froth and posseses the color of brown blood. The aroma is of malt and biscuits. Medium nectar with ample residual effers. Malty yet dry with a mild roast and dark cocoa flavors. Theres a slight charcoal-esque constituant with a leathery precipitousness. The finish is dry and lingering. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2006
This has been one of my top ~50 session beers for years. Big frothy white head over a loamy brown, garnet-tinged body. Neutral nose (oh, well), and a hint of aluminum in the first sudsy mouthful (too bad). Snappy caramel malt flavor, with just enough hops at the end to keep you sane--and that not being too bitter. Easily the heaviest beer that you can drink all afternoon on a hot, muggy day. Completely flavorful without being at all domineering.

White head over a dark reddish- brown body. Slight amount of cocoa in the aroma, with a generous amount of malts, and a strong nuttiness, which also comes out in the flavor. Well-balanced, and pleasant. Sweet and ever-so-slightly bitter finish. notalush (5878) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2006
Mild, smooth and refreshing, yet rather flavorful at the same time - soft carbonation and a cocoa dryness - some nutty flavor and a touch of caramel - moderately dry, almost spicy hop finish - it doesn’t blow you away, but it does make you want to pour yourself another.

Bottle courtesy of Indiana_Red. Transparent dark mahogany/brown, decent tan head fades over time. Tiny spots of lacing. Aroma has a nice balance of roasted nuts/grain, caramel and very faint fruity hop bitterness. Flavor begins with a caramel sweetness, turns to nutty roasted grain, with chocolate in the background. Finishes with a very minute hop bite. Well done brown. Very easy drink. SoLan (1550) - Florida, USA - APR 18, 2006
Dark brown/ruby. Dense tan head. Sweet, toasty, malty aroma. Flavor is the same with some nice balancing bitterness in the finish. Medium, balanced palate. Very good brown. Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2006
