On tap at Dragonmead. Pours a nice dark brown with large foamy head. Aroma is not strong, but is evident with chocolate and fresh nuts. Taste is exactly what it aimed for, mild.
Keg @ Dragonmead. Brown pour with a small head. Gentle chocolate malt. Expressive english hops. Earthy, subtle. Sweet chocolate malt. A touch peppery. Medium body, oily. deyholla (12463) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2017
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear deep amber red with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has lots of bread and straw with grains supporting. Flavor has lots of bread and earthy grains backing. chucklemation (1775) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a very foamy, creamy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, earth, and chocolate. Flavor is sweet caramel, toffee, and chocolate malts. Has a creamy, smooth, light body. This is a good low ABV beer that I wouldn’t mind drinking a lot of. Ferris (16751) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Draft - Grainy dark malts and some toffee. Deep clear caramel with a good beige head. Grainy, toasted malts and caramel. More like a weak bitter, still decent. Kip_ (1) - - JUN 24, 2014 does not count
Earthy and rich with traditional brown ale notes, but light enough to drink and enjoy in the summer.

An aroma of tobacco and pear. Clear dark brown with a nice white head and minor lace. Tastes mildly sweet like the smell of a good cigar, mild roast malt, and a nearly undetectable grapefruit bitterness on the end to balance the vanilla-ish tobacco sweetness from the start. Palate is nice and creamy; this is only served on nitro. Overall, this is one of my favorite beers from Dragonmead, and the world for that matter; I think it is very under rated and unique beer if you enjoy a mild ale. firstsip (752) - Michigan, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Dark and low alcohol. Palate is incredibly thin. A bit too much sweet maltiness for my tastes. b3shine (9208) - Indiana, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent dark copper with thin off-white head. Smells malty and chocolatey with a touch of hops. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Not my favorite style, but a solid example of it. Ratman197 (15474) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish amber with a lasting creamy tan head. Aromnas of toffee, earthiness, fruittiness and light tobacco. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, light fruttiness and a hint of tobacco with a smooth finish.
