UPDATED: OCT 21, 2007 12oz via trade. (Thanks hellbilly!) ok, so she pours a clear brown with a huge chunky/bubbly beige head. Nose is soapy and nutty. Taste is grassy, vegetal, nutty, on top of a decent malt base. Body is light/medium. Carbonation is moderate.....this is a decent fall..rake-some-leaves-but-don-t think about it toooooo much-type beer..

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Bottle thanks to hellbilly: Pours an amber color with 1 finger white head. Aroma is very malty and has notes of vinous dark fruits. Flavor is primarily malty with lots of carmel and toffee notes with a medium body. You can also detect some of those dark fruits as well. Definitely some raisan and prune notes. No detectable hops or bitterness but finishes without too much sweetness. Very much to style.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Thanks to maniac for this one. Medium copper appearance, slight head faded rapidly to nothing, a hair fizzy. Lightly smoky and caramel aroma, nice. The smoke unfortunately didnt translate at all to the tongue. The end result was a light bodied brew with faint caramel malts and a bit of drying hops on the finish that didnt really provide any more flavor. Sessionable, but I would have liked more body.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Unique deep, leathery brown with long-lasting medium coarse head. Gentle aroma of toffee, light milk chocolate and toast with a bit of roastiness. Warm, malty body with caramel, light bitterness, great balance.

Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Draught. Golden amber, thin head. Average aroma. Distinctly macro flavor. Too clean and crisp and lager like for my personal taste. Grainy, hay flavors.
