Dark brown body tan head. Little lacing. Cola vanilla toffee aroma with earthy notes...damp leaves. Sweet cola vanilla flavor with a nice bitter caramel backdrop. Feels light on the palate. Lightly carbonated but what is there is sharp. Finish unpleasant lasting bitter metallic flavor...maybe some masa in there as well...burnt tortilla? A light mess of a brown on the sweet side.

On tap at clybourn. Poured a dark brown with an amber hue. Lots of malts on the nose with a slight nuttiness. Malty taste with very, very mild hops. Interesting brew that might benefit from more of a punch. CMUBEERMAN (443) - - JAN 11, 2006
Much darker than I expected...more of a stoutish feel, but still kind of light bodied. Lots of carmel like the other GI brown ales. Pretty good.
