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. apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2006
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 (5955) - Lakewood, 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 (15636) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 16, 2006
Bottle poured a clear dark brown with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of coffee, bakers cocoa, and some nuttiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of nuts, a bit of chocolateand some coffee notes with a smooth semisweet finish. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - APR 12, 2006
Bottle. Deep brown colored and clear. Some garnet hues when backlit. Smallish off-white head fades quickly and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is pretty pleasant. Nutty and chocolate. Medium to light bodied fairly smooth. The flavor runs the aroma spectrum, initially very pronounced but fading towards the middle and finish. Decent hop presence, just enough to be noticeable. Needs a bit more stamina in the taste and this would be pretty nice. HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - APR 4, 2006
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.
