Draft. Clear amber color, thick off white head with good retention and solid lacing. Aroma of cardboard and caramel. Taste is chocolate, caramel and cardboard. Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2002
Clear, dark brown w/ red accents. Aroma is of bark, hinting at bread crust, pecans and tobacco. Fairly full body, enhanced by the low carbonation and touch of oiliness. Malty front with light nuttiness leads to more iron-tasting middle. Finishes with earthy, toasty notes and an increase in hop dryness. Straightforward flavours very similar to the aroma.

Brown pour, tannish head. Very malty aroma with a good scent of coffee. Flavor is really weird. Coffee mixed with plastic and nail polish. Smells better than it tastes. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Hazy, dark brown appearance with an off white head. Roasty, nutty, a bit charred aroma with light notes of fruit and wood. Burnt, roasty caramel malty, a touch smoky, lightly fruity flavor with a smooth finish and relatively little in the aftertaste. Easy enough to drink.
