suture (6) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2006 does not count
(D’Agostino’s, NYC) Smooth beer. Slight wooden flavor with a coffee aftertaste. If it weren’t for the coffee, I’d really like it.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2006
a sim rate: (bottled from D’Agostino’s NYC) Lovely piney, wooden aroma. Chocolate and cinnamon in there too. Flavour is full with licquorice, coffee and a hint of dark chocolate. It’s got a citrus kick right at the end and a fantastic full aftertaste. I loved it.

On draft at Just Sports with Stegosaurus. This beer poured dark, and had a decent aroma, good head, the taste was good, i thought it was a little watery, but it is a good beer.

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - APR 21, 2006
Pours dark brown with barely any head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, and slight nuttiness. Not as strong as I would prefer, but this has a nice roasty flavor that complements the aforementioned malts. Nice floral hoppiness in the finish. Extremely drinkable.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2006
somewhat odd for a brown, yet somewhat appetizing...aroma and flavor are of roasted notes, with definite pale characteristics (including strong floral hops)...alcohol present...decent palate

hellomynameis (877) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2006
Fine creamy head, medium to start turning into a thin but heavy coating that left stickly lace all over the glass. Kind of a sweet chocolate like aroma that is balanced by some roast. One of the better browns I have had with a lot of complexity. Caramel and roast malt flavour, finish gently bittering hops. Well done, flavourful and complex.

3.6
BitchesBrew (716) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2006
[Tap @ Sunset Grill 4/8/06] Looks great, smells kind of sweet and malty. Tastes great- complex malts, kind of woody tasting, but with just enough sweetness. Finishes with a nice light hop aroma. Excellent.

3.2
Bigassfish (140) - Naperville/Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2006
pours redish brown. aroma of malt and hops. flavor is the same with a slight alcohol aftertaste

3.6
TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - APR 5, 2006
Pours a reddish brown amber with an average off white bubbly head that left some lacing. Aroma of caramel, a light woodyness, coffee, chocolate and some nuts. Flavor was a mix of the same. Some roastiness going on as well. Hops there but subtle. Not a favorite style of mine, but this was well done.

rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Firkin on the bar at The Old Toad. Beer tastes better when poured via gravity. Body is stained wood - ruby light shines through if held to a lightg. Nose has chocolate, cherries, nicely hopped. Flavor is cocoa, cherry, caramel, some wood. Spicy finish with lots of fruit, a hint of alcohol. Great body - only slightly carbonated but still a pleasure.
