Dark brown pour with medium sized tan head. Aroma of malts and chocolate. Taste of malt, chocolate, toast, slightly nutty, and a slight dry bitter finish. Perfect carbonation and mouthfeel. gramity (1638) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
Dark brown with very small off-brown head. Toasted nutty nose, with hints of sweetness. Flavor is rather nutty with a good amount of sweet malt to balance it out. A stand up but not stand out brown ale. I’d order a pint of this just about any time. Travlr (24260) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Draft at the source. Clear maroon brown color, beige head with good retention. Aroma of chocolate brownies. Taste has cocoa, subtle pepper. Braudog (6666) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2007
Draft pint at a Whitefish restaurant. Mahogoney brown with absolutely no head. Deep rich and malty, full bodied and big. This would’ve been a good dessert beer, but I had it as an appetizer after a day of drinking. (#2867, 5/12/2007) mbgrayson (766) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Pours almost black with a medium tan head. Weak aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste is smooth, with malt, chocolate and coffee. Overall, a nice smooth brown ale; quite drinkable. Thumbs up.

On tap at the brewpub in Missoula. Pours dark brown with a modest beige head and a toasty aroma. There is a mild roasted malt flavor with a dry bitter finish. TimE (5767) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 7, 2012
dark brown color. Coffee and a touch of citrus. Again nothing too exciting for me. reebtogi (6235) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 6, 2011
650ml bomber pours a dark brown color with a finger and a half of off-white head which settles to some nice thin lacing. Aroma is mild roasted malts. Taste is light roasted malty sweetness with a mild earthy hop bitter finish. A very interesting brown ale with some flavours that I cannot get a handle on, but this is a good brown ale nonetheless. jake65 (3592) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle: Deep brown with auburn hues. Nose is lightly roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is consistent with the aroma albeit amplified. Nice amount of chocolate that balances out the roasted malts. Light hint of yeast. Good. beernovice39 (3270) - Idaho, USA - JAN 15, 2013
On tap. Amber pour with an off white top. Scent is toasty, caramel and nuts. Taste follows scent with a hint of citrus.
