A very nice tailgating beer that I shared with my brother (who is also a beer nut) while outside waiting for the Raiders to play. A very nice clean taste, caramel notes with a slight floral nod along with a roasty flavor. A full mouthfeel and a nice clean drink makes this one repeatedly stocked in the fridge.

Pours a very dark brown with a thick two finger head that slowly fades to a thick ring with quite a bit of lacing.
Smell; there’s a bit of a nutty smell as well as some chocolate and sweet malts.
Taste; this pretty follows the smell. There’s a slightly roasted nut flavor, with chocolate malts. The finish has a bit of hop bitterness going on. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but not bad, and is an ejoyable and very sessional beer. BeerandBlues2 (13199) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 27, 2006
Draught at Old Chicago in Colorado Springs. Pours dark nut (chesnut) brown wiht a small frothy tan head and lined, spotty lacing. Malty (caramel, chocolate, meal) medium roasted aroma with yeast notes, faint hops. Malty, slight sour yeast (sweat, dough) flavor, low sweetness, low acidity. Medium bodied refreshing and crisp. mrnutsnbolts (204) - anywhere usa, - JAN 24, 2006
Tap @ Raleigh’s. Dark, clear brown with a small head. Smells nutty, malty, and slightly sweet. Satisfying and different than Newcastle, I think a bit more flavorful. Light body, malty, and very drinkable. natedoggkc (164) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Pours dark brown with slight head. Really smooth and easy to drink with a light hazlenut finish. Would be a good beer with an American dish.

Pours with a frothy light brown colored head that is perhaps a finger thick. The beer is a deep, dark brown color that can’t bee seen through, while it was being poured it showed a pretty, clear, rich chestnut color. The aroma is at first sweet with notes of crystal malt but then starts to pick up nutty notes of dark malt, hints of coffee, notes of toasted biscuits, and a note that reminds me of deeply browned toast.rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2005
The taste is light and has an up front soft sweetness that quickly picks up notes of lightly roasted coffee. The finish is quite lone and makes me think of brown, richly toasted malt that lingers on the tongue with a slightly astringent quality to it. This beer is quite the easy quaffer, tasty enough to be interesting, but light enough to be a session beer. This is really an enjoyable beer, perhaps a tad simplistic, but sometimes that is what really hits the spot.

Pours a dark brown with nice red tone beige foamy head that (unfortunately) dwindles to almost nothing. Mild, almost non-existant aroma (almost putting my face in the glass to smell anything). Flavor is good nutty/coffee like but unremarkable. Body is nice and creamy coating the palate in what flavor is available.
Wife says "That’s not good." JohnnyOS (646) - Golden, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 23, 2005
Deep brownish red color with average head. Decent aroma of hazelnut, malt and a hint of skunk. Coffeesque flavors with a bit of hops giving it a medium body.
Not bad. MoreHead (355) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 20, 2005
pours a very dark brown, red tint when held up to the light. average head and lacing. aroma is smokey, coffee, and maybe a touch of rhubarb sweetness. flavor follows the smell with some hops to it. nicely done. tennisjoel (1446) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Great name... doesn’t make it sound appetizing, but yet at the same time, I like the concept, especially from a brewer out in Montana, where the Moose freely roam. Clear reddish brown with a very attractive head and lace. Smell puts me off a little. Hard to describe what it is like. I’ve had this before, but if I were only to rate on aroma, this one would fail miserably. However, if I were to rate on appearance, it would get great marks. Taste, here goes...chocolate and raisin malts, some coffee, not bad. I really couldn’t enjoy this in large quantities, but it is pretty good for what it is. Maybe slightly watered down, but still done nicely. I’ve had the winter powder hound brew, which I think is slightly better, but that style is just a one I personally like better. This is still pretty decent.
