UPDATED: JAN 4, 2009 Draft at brewery. Clear dark brown-copper. Earthy, dry cocoa and spicy molasses aroma. Toasted nut initial flavor, with a dry cocoa and British yeast finish. Palate is light-medium, dry and astringent. aracauna (3709) - Georgia, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Some nuttiness, warm malts. Not a ton of flavor. Fairly light for a brown ale. Not bad though. Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2007
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Tap. Not much of an aroma, perhaps some malty sweetness but I like the dark Ruby Red color. The head was fairly thin and the taste is also of malts with a slightly bitter finish. A good substitute for when they occasionally run out of the state street stout. shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 25, 2006
Pours a beautiful dark brown, with a nicely creamy head. Tastes of roasted nuts blended with caramel and a note of coffee lurking about in the background. A bit light in the taste for such a dark brew, exacerbated by hoppy finish that could stand some heavier notes up front.Overall, a fairly good brew. maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Draught. Deep amber, frothy beige head. Eyewatering nose of sour milk and yoohoo chocolate drink. Tastes exactly the same; sour milk and mocha latte. For comparison, the sourness is of equal intensity as the infamous infected Victory V10. Medium-light body, creamy. Poisonously overbitter muddy and ashtray aftertaste coats the tongue. If any of the commercial description flavors were in there, they were completely overwhelmed by lactic sourness. Nasty!

I had the Alt before I had this don’t make that mistake. This beer was a nice amber pour with light lacing. It had a sweetish maltiness with a light bitter finish. A very well balanced beer. A nice beer that was just a tad on the watery side. Overall a damn fine brew. I wish I could make one like it. awebster (166) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2006
Maybe their best beer. Good malt characteristics, not overly hoppy. Brown, fair amount of head. Light/medium bodied. Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Chesnut-red with not much of a head. Caramel aromas with some fruitiness. Flat malty, yeasty flavor with some restrained bitternesst. Light finish. Not much nut flavor. Tmoney99 (15130) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Sampler draft at DGB. Dark brown color with moderate off-white head that diminished slowly. Moderate aroma of sweet malt. Medium body with smooth texture. Moderate sweet malt and hop flavor with short sweet finish. NachlamSie (3598) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 on draught under the alias "Woodruff Brown" . Light tan/brown pour. Nutty, sugary aroma with some acidity. There’s a sweet walnut taste and an astrigency of nut shells. There’s a bit of breadiness throughout. This is fairly thin for a brown and not balanced too well.
