DrSilverworm (10000) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 13, 2013
12oz bottle, just $1 from my local Trader Joe’s. Best before 7/14/13. Clear dark red color, kind of brown. Minimal white head. Little dots of lace. Dark fruit, light chocolate, lightly nutty aroma. Medium body. Not too strong carbonation, nothing special about the texture, more dry carbonation, nothing lingering. Some chocolate syrup type flavor in the aftertaste. Sweeter taste overall, nothing too strong though. Nice sweet chocolaty nutty brown ale.

Draft. Pours clear amber with a beige head. Sweet malts, light grainy notes and low bitterness. On the bland side, but not bad.

bb (9790) - Alamo, California, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Bottle. Very dark brown-mahogony with a thin light beige head. Light sweet malt aroma. Roasty flavor that’s not at all overpowering, along with some malt, caramel, and nuttiness. Very drinkable.

12 ounce bottle from Trader Joes. Pours a dark brown color, a bit red, with a small white head. A sweet nose of cola and caramel. The flavor is toast, sweet sugars, brown toasted malt. OK. Lots of cola.

drowland (9184) - Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
12oz bottle into a pint glass. All in all, this beer was pretty boring and almost watery, which is very disappointing for a dark.

Tallahassee, Fl. - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown pour, quicly fading off-white head. Aroma is nutty with some light chocolate accents. Flavor has some earthy potting soil notes, some light chocolate, a touch of licorice. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Enjoyable.
