UPDATED: APR 15, 2006 One of the most satisfying beers, it never disappoints. Flavors of malt, nuts and chocolate. Aromas of chocolate as well.
Just the right amount of carbonation and body. A bit of sweetness finishes this off. I got addicted to this beer while vacationing in Montana and I am glad that it is now available in CA. KSS (102) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2006
Nice chocolate brown colored draft pour with a small head and decent lacing. Chocolate, nut and caramel notes in the taste. Sweetness balanced nicely with hops. Very nice brown ale. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Indiana_Red. Pours a clear dark brown with a small fleeting off-white head. Toasted and nutty malt aroma with some hints of chocolate. Pretty strong aroma for a Brown Ale. Mixed flavor profile of nuttiness and grainy crystal malt. Finish is lightly bitter with a light chalkiness. Mouthfeel is average for a Brown Ale, fairly thin with a fizzy carbonation level. Overall, your average Brown Ale across the board. Nothin’ special but drinkable. jimmyh221 (157) - Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2006
It had a dark brown color with a spare head. However, the lacing was excellent. It had a nice chocolate taste that was very balanced. RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - MAR 11, 2006
This beer offers a an aroma of yeast, caramel, and nuts/biscuits. It is a mahogany colored solution with a thin off-white head and good lacing. This thin bodied beer offers a nutty caramel taste that fades smoothly.

(Draft; 12oz Bottles; 2/2006) Chocolate brown color with tan head. Malty aromas of roasty, chocolate notes. Spicy hop aroma barely noticable. Sweet. Slightly roasty. Medium body. jake65 (3689) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 21, 2006
Featured a nice blend of maltiness, roast, chocolates, and hops. Not too sweet, but very drinkable. Darked than I think of for a brown, nice rich color like that of dark chocolate. Overall a nice brown ale. BuckeyeBoy (7663) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2006
Pours a very nice brown, topped with a Great tan head. It has some roast to it. A Very good beer. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 16, 2006

(01.29.6) 12 oz brown bottle as gift from home brewmaster Scott L. Sampled at DiCarlo’s, Mundelin, IL. Clear brown ale having a average off-white head. Soft carbonation. Toasty malt aroma. Medium bodied that starts with light sweet malt and notable toasted malt flavor. Finishes dry. Very tasty. A very good drinkable brown ale. Interestingly, when compared in a side-by-side comparison with Scott L’s homebrew version of Moose Drool, Scott’s homebrew version won hands-down. Thanks Scott!
