Draught @ the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head. Malty nutty caramel aroma with some hoppy hints. Roasted malty nutty flavor with some hints of caramel. Has a roasted malty nutty finish. Dogbrick (14009) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Deep amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of sweet malt, nuts and fruit. The finish is sweet with a short nutty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

On tap at Brewpub Seattle. Pours out a clear brown topped with a white head. Nice nut and a little vanilla as well. Pretty good. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2011
12 oz. Pours an opaque dark brown with clearer dark brown edges. Virtually no head, lace, or legs. Big roasty nose with a toasty nutshell note. Creamy medium body with decently lively carb. Roast, black bread, and nuts on the mid palate. Certainly appealing enough, just not really complex enough to be very interesting.

Bottled. Poured clear garnety-brown with a short-lived beige head. The aroma picked up nutty and caramel sugars laced with an odd fruity vinegar character.. smelled like it was possibly a little infected, but the bottle wasn’t old. The flavor found nutty and fruity sweetness at the core.. the sourness was still there, and it didn’t much help.. dried out on the back-end, but it still left residual sugars.. tacky sour fruit skins stuck on the finish. Light-medium bodied with a poor flow across the palate.. this was just off. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Bottle pours a clear mahogany, medium to large frothy head, decent lacing, with little to no carbonation. Malty nose, slightly biscuity, and a tad bit roasted. Maybe light hints of chocolate malt. Slight malt flavor, a bit sweet, with a hint of carob. Minor astringency. Medium bodied, but the mouthfeel seems a bit thin. Malty finish (albeit thin), semi-sweet, but with a slight sour/astringent twang. Blech... nuplastikk (6476) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2010
12oz shorty bottle. Deep toffee-brown color, with a foamy head that laces the sides of the glass. Toffee, coffee aroma. Rich, medium bodied, on the verge of full. Mossy, with an odd twangy tartness to complement the sticky sweet malt tones. Piny, with some pungent caramel undertones. A really odd beer, possibly infected. Some harsh brown chocolate bitterness. Lots of interesting ingredients, but a rather poorly executed product. JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Dark cherry wood brown color with a moderate taupe head. Initial DMS scents slowly fade to reveal some light roasted malt, hints of herbal hops and hint of coffee. Lightly sweet flavors. I somehow get a musty roasted flavor. I think I understand what they were going for, enjoy it for what it is, but I don’t think it quite works for me. An Irish red/brown. Ok. 2/10 riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 6, 2008
UPDATED: APR 8, 2008 Aroma of nuts and roast, with something that is a little odd too. Pours brown - no shit. Somewhat sweet with roasted nuts, and something weird. Finishes with a moderate hop bitterness. I don’t get what is going on here. It is drinkable, but odd.
