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. smcd (366) - USA - FEB 26, 2006
(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 (4000) - 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 (8494) - 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.

(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!

Plenty of sour chocolate tang and chewy doughiness keep this one afloat. Some hazelnuts and toast linger in the background. If I lived in Montana and had to drink this all the time I might tire of it, but it’s a tasty and well-done brown with a solid mouthfeel and just enough fizz to keep it from being weighty. Very nice.

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.
