on tap-pours a tight light tan head and hazy brown with red tint. Aroma is roasty/cocoa-dark malt. Taste is slightly sweet dark malt-roasty/cocoa, 2nd spice hops bite. 4%, !, mighty full flavored! PhillyBeer2112 (2925) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - MAY 21, 2011
Draft at Mellow Mushroom, Winter Park. Hey nice. Dark brown color, modest head. Aroma is a little toffee caramel, touch nutty. Flavor similar, creamy mouthfeel, moderate hop bitterness at the finish. Well balanced quaffer, great with food. Only dislike is the choice hops, tasted a little woody and mushroomy. But the creamy rounded feel of the malts kept me distracted and satisfied.

Sample at CCB. Light brown/dark red pour with slim off white head. Caramel, toast and nutty aroma. Med body with coffee, chocolate and nuts. Very flavorful for a mild. Roasty finish with more chocolate and coffee. murphym45 (779) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 29, 2011
Tap at RNH, one of my favorites at the tap takeover, although it could have something to do with the fact that I had it after drinking a handful of different IPAs, sours, imperial stouts, etc. and needed something refreshing. Poured hazy brown, aroam of roasted malt with some dark fruit. Light bodied and very refreshing, light bitterness on the finish but not too much. Very enjoyable and easy drinking, but still a nice aroma and plenty of flavor.

Draft @ redlight redlight. Caramel malts on the nose. Pours a dark amber. Caramel malts with bread notes with spicy hops and drinkable dry finish. Excellent session beer! sebletitje (10500) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 21, 2011
Entering old-rates. Draft @ CCB, cheers to the old Ybor cigar factory Lector. Encore une petite brune qui se laisse déguster. Rappelle la Chaveta dans son profile léger mais pleine de saveur. Donne un brun léger avec col beige.
Un arôme léger de malt avec des notes grillées le tout présente un léger parfum houblonné. Palais est similaire avec un profile malt très agréable allant vers le chocolat léger et une pointe grillée. Le tout conserve ce léger aspect épicé houblon et de grains concassés.
BigSound (196) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2012
On tap at cigar city.
This brew poured a deep mahogany brown with red hues where the light passed through, very little head on this mostly due to the pour, what did remain was on the yellow side of off-white.
The nose on this one was pretty roasty, notes of caramel, chocolate, and a bit of earthiness.
Up front I get those sweet malty flavors, chocolate and a little fruit I can’t put my finger on. There are some earthy notes followed up by a bit of grassy hop.
The body is fairly light and the carbonation sits on the high side making this brew very drinkable.
Overall a nice drinkable beer, but nothing to wright home about.

Light, slightly fruity toasted aroma. clear, walnut-cola brown with a filmy bone colored head. Orange gel and light roast flavor. Medium bodied with a short, citrusy finish. Some grassiness in there as well. Pretty good. Momo’s, on tap. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Slightly hazy brown color. Aroma is light, has some roasted malt, a hint of bitterness and peanuts. Flavor is slightly bitter, toast, malts and a hint of dark fruit like fig and plum. Slightly odd finish but still tasty.
