Pours a clearish black with a thin beige head. Aroma of metal and alcohol similar to what you would expect from a red. This beer is a really fantastic offering that tastes of chocolate the warmer is gets. joshwoodward (575) - - OCT 26, 2013
Had a pint on tap at the brewery. Delicious. Refreshing, slightly smoky, almost fruity. Aurelius (5379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2008 Very dark porter brown, thin head. Dry, dark malt aroma -- like a toasty brown ale or porter. Medium tanginess, some cola, very light nutty/seedy quality that isn’t rightly a ’sweetness’. Crisp, tangy finish. Only flaw was a little metal on the lips. Medium to medium light body. Very nice. Moderate roast without backlash aftertaste. Pastor (799) - Skowhegan, Maine, USA - FEB 20, 2010
Bottle poured into a pint glass produced a finger worth of white head that faded to a good lace. The body of the brew was an interesting reddish brown color.
The aromas were a little roasted and bready yeast, it was very light and subtle. Basically what I look for in a lager when it comes to smell. The flavor was roasted and sweet at the same time. It was crisp and light in the mouth with good carbonation. It was a easy brew to drink and was looking for more when I finished it

A special seasonal just newly offered from elevator, this seems to have a little nut flavoring plus the sweetness of a dunkel. A drinkable dark lager for sure.

On draught at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear dark brown color with a medium and fluffy beige head that has decent retention. Patchy lacing. Aroma of roasted nuts and malt, with hints of hops. Medium, smooth body with a nice roasted character. Notes of malt, chocolate and nuts along with a decent amount of hops. The finish is dry and roasty with a lingering mild hoppiness. Pretty good all around. BabyJoe692 (109) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2007
Draft. Amber/brown in color. Slight malty aroma. Sweet malty balanced flavor. theisti (4138) - Kansas, USA - APR 15, 2011
Shaker pint draft at the brewpub in Columbus, Ohio. Pour is a clear brown golden with a smallish off white head. Aroma is a touch of char roast malt, along with a hint of nutty malt. Nice fresh nose. Taste is nutty, slight roast and a mild toasted sweet maltiness. Really crisp, clean and flavorful. Palate is medium to light bodied with the soft char roast lingering nicely in the after taste. Quite smooth. Really drinkable tasty beer. Nice one. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2011
Dark brown pour. Meaty aroma, beef jerky, smoked malt, pencil shavings in the nose. Flavor has some light smoke, jerky notes, porcini mushroom. Unique beer! DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2011
12oz bottle. Nice, clear brown color, minimal head, some lace. Good, toasty, nutty aroma. Light, bitter hops evident. Just a bit of chocolatey sweet coffee stout taste. Crisp carbonation, a good crest in the flavor. Nice, malty aftertaste.
