Pour on tap at craft kitchen, dark brownish red pour with tan head, aroma brought caramel, toffee, muted spice, some earth into a bit of grass. Taste is muddled, but some caramel, toffee, slight dark fruit into a bit of grass and herbal notes, finishing sweet, slightly bitter. arnold931 (1263) - Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2015

Bottle. Poured a thick white head, dark brown and opaque liquid. Good aroma, but taste was a bit a bit sour. A little syrupy, not unpleasant, but the aftertaste was not good at all.

Not much aroma, which isn't necessarily bad. It least it didn't smell horrible! Excellent taste and mouthfeel. Beautiful dark coffee color with a nice tan/brown head. mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - DEC 22, 2014

Picked up a bottle in a mix six in WI. Average beer - light on complexity and nothing noteworthy to remember after finishing the bottle. rondphoto (4455) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2014
bottle @ John’s Grocery / Iowa City IA --- Opaque dark brown color, 2" tan head that slowly drops, bubbly curtain of lace. Taste is rich roasted caramel malt that stays true to itself, the flavor intensifying as it moves through the palate to a lightly bittered finish with the malt lingering for a long time. Really big and fantastic for 5.2%, a terrificly executed brew.
