Draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark ruby brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, chocolate, wood, and earth. Flavor follows suit closely, with some vegetal and fruity notes. Medium-bodied, with crisp carbonation and a leafy mouthfeel and finish. Roasy aftertaste. Not bad.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a reddish brown with a thin white head. This is an unusual beer in that it looks like a schwartzbier, but does not taste like one. A bit on the tart side, this one is less smooth than the others. My least favorite, but no mistakes. drseusszb200 (687) - Florida, USA - APR 28, 2010
Not that good plain and not much flavor but its in french quarter so that might make it taste better but I doubt it AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Clear coloa color/ no head. Faint rootbeer spicy, brown malt aromas. medium bodied. Decent spicy sweet brown malt, rootbeer flavors with mild chocolate. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2010
Serving: Draft at the brewpub.
It has a black color with ruby highlights and a small, foamy, off-white head. The nose is roasty with some wood, a touch of soy, and caramel. The taste doesn’t come through as strong as the nose and takes an odd earthy turn. Notes of dirt, wood, mushroom, and a slight roastiness round things out. Thankfully it’s crisp and it has a clean finish. This one starts good but really takes an odd turn when it hits your tongue. It left me wondering if this is really what they intended.

I sampled this beer on tap at the brewpub in New Orleans. The beer had a dark brown color with an amber hue and a moderate, creamy off-white head that had modest retention and cling. The beer had some grainy and grassy hops aroma with a bit of caramel malt too. A somewhat bitter hoppy beer with mild sweetness too. It was a bit watery and thinner with lower carbonation and a dry finish. sebletitje (10282) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 25, 2009

Mahogany in color with a moderate off white head that leaves a bit of spotty lacing down the glass. Aroma is mild sweet roast malt. Dry malty flavor with little hops presence. Medium bodied with a dry lingering aftertaste.

On tap at brewpub in New Orleans. Pours a mahogany red color with a thick tan-white head. Aroma is light with notes of malt, fresh fruit, nuts and spice. Flavor is sweet and malty with notes of sour wheat, grass, yeast, and hints of caramel and honey. Generally light to medium body with a sour malty finish. Not really that good.
