nose of unsweetened chocolate, light black with light red hues. light in body, chocolate, caramel. sweet, very light bitterness, nearly no hops. rather mellow daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2003
Dark brown color. Light chocolate, good roast and a touch of sweetness in the nose. A touch of smoke in the body, lightly roasted and slightly oily. Finishes slightly hoppy but overall is affected by it’s spritzyness. bubslang (438) - Kentwood, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2002
a nice dark brown with medium sized head, good roasted chocolate malt flavor, but unfortunately way to thin and watery. Ale Boy99 (19) - Twin Lake, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2002
Too watery, but a nice roasty, sweet, chocolate flavor. hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2002
If it wasn’t so damn thin, it might be a superior brew. Very nice roast and, especially, chocolate flavours. A touch sweet like all HOTF brews.
