Draft pour, a clear brown-ale looking pour with a nice white head. Nose is quite roasty, with some rye-like notes (maybe the mustard?). The roast settles a bit after one gets used to it and some nice fruity hops show through. Bitter finish. I would have preferred a bit of tone-down on the roast. Still good, and love the abv.
From tap. Pours hazy brown to deep amber with a small off white head. Aroma is roasted malty and slight breadish. Toasted malty, caramelish and slight breadish. Bitter and medium dry finish. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2013
On tap multiple times already at BCBB. Praises for both idea and execution. This is a pretty damn fine approximation of a dark mild, nothing heavy or especially intense about despite the cola hue. It’s effervescent, very flavorful (combining fresh table bread and citrus), with a mild pungency that I reckon comes from the mustard. Earthy, just a bit sweet in the right places, and with a pleasantly dry finish. Very nice. emacgee (4675) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2013
Sharp clean garnet brown pour with a solid beige tan head. Light sweetness to the nose, barley husk, and earthy grainy malt. Earthy malt profile in the flavor. Light caramel/toffee and grainy malt. Lightly smoky with a touch of bitterness. Light medium body with a bit of a bite. Dry finish. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 19, 2013
Tap at BCBB. Pours medium to dark brown with a small off white head. Nose is pumpernickel, light bran, rye, light cocoa. Flavor is similar-lots of malt flavor with light earthy hops. Pretty impressive.
