zeprck (24) - Boone, North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2008 Thick head with nice lacing on the glass. Sort of chocolate malty taste, with a crisp finish and a slightly creamy aftertaste. This is a very drinkable dark ale. Would be a great introductory dark beer for someone that isnt sure theyre ready for something heavier.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2006
Very dark brown with a nutty-sweet aroma. Taste was less than great, possibly due to my heavy eating prior to this beer. Sweet, chocolatish malts were OK. This beer was too "in between" for me - Id prefer either an amber or a nice stout, but not this half-breed that isnt all that special.
