Pours a dark brown. Very good roasted chocolate malt flavor, with a little hop. I can taste the alcohol and has a bitter aftertasted. Good beer.
12oz bottle-A dark brown body with a huge off white head and an aroma of nuts and malt. Taste of the same along with a little caramel and chocolate. Nota bad brew but just a little bit over carbonated. RSRIZZO (2020) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - SEP 23, 2007
Had this beer on 6/2/2006. Aroma is a light metallic malt scent. Color is a deep almost black brown with good carbonation and a thick tight head. Taste is thin and bitter. Starting with a light body it goes down with a crisp feel. Finish comes in with a crisp bitterness and mild malt flavor that has only a faint roasted taste to it. Overall its not bad to drink but, not all that well balanced. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Bottle from Glenn. About a year old. Poured with a huge white head. Pretty much a gusher. Nose was nutty, and slightly hoppy. Flavor had more nuts, a dust of cocoa, and a dry bitter and mild hop finish. Nothing special, but drinkable. kp (10881) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

This brown ale pours a deep brown color from a 12oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is nutty and sweet, with a touch of chocolate. A light to medium bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty, caramel and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter and earthy. Nutty and slightly sweet brown ale. Good balance. Nice carbonation. Touch of cardboard at the finish. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottle thanks to OhioDad: Pours a transparent dark mahogany with an airy, thin-lacing off-white head. Sweet, toasty nutty malty aroma has some fresh green English hops. Body starts with a good sweet dark caramel malty character with toasty nuts and a mildly bitter green hoppy presence. Has a touch of bready dough and licorice. A nice, very drinkable brown ale.

12oz bottle from Ohiodad. Pours a dark brown color with a foamy light tan head that receedes to a light filmy covering. Nose is lightly hoppy, light nuts and slight malt hints. Nose is fairly bland and non existent. Palate is thin and smooth with a solid bitterness and a crisp finish. Flavor notes of light sweet malt, some grapes and raisins, light nutty feel, and some plum notes. basher (12) - murray, Kentucky, USA - MAR 6, 2006
I drank this beer years ago, and just now started rating. I drank it at night, outside, so I don’t remember the color very well. The aroma was kind of thick and nutty, which was good. The initial taste was pretty good, almost like a stout, but finished kind of like burnt hops. Not bad, but just not my favorite taste, I don’t like a big hop taste. Overall, it was good and I would drink it again... hopscotch (11181) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Bottle... Dark ale with a small, fizzy, khaki head. Robust aroma for the style... chocolate and dark roasted nuts. The well-balanced flavor is also fairly hearty for the style... chocolate, weak coffee, vanilla and mild caramel. Light to medium-bodied and lively. Short, crisp, grassy finish. Thanks go out to OhioDad for the bottle. eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 20, 2006
Thanks to OhioDad for this one. Poured dark brown with a tan head. Aroma had some nutty notes and a mild sweet chocolate scent. Tasted like watery cardboard with some dusty nuttiness. In my notes I have "Was a Pile O Shit" so I don’t think I liked this one too much.
