Thanks to Darkover for the trade. Pretty gimmicky name, yes? Pours a dark brown color with a thin beige head. Thin lacing rings. The aroma is nutty and roasty. Medium-bodied with toasted malt, hops and a bit of fruit in the flavor. The finish is lightly malty with just a hint a hops. Overall this is an average Brown Ale.

A deep reddish brown ale with a thin moka head. In aroma, a pleasant burned caramel malt, dark fruit esters. In mouth, a spiced roasted coffee malt with light butterscotch notes, oily mouthfeel, not bad. Bottle at Maggie’s on the River, August 27, 2010. crossovert (14153) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 16, 2014
355ml bottle. Brewed at the new facility according to the label. Not sure if it is still new but ill take it. Rather than brown this is actually a really deep plum/magenta color. The smell is pleasant, light cocoa, roasted malts, slight earthiness. The flavor is ok. Definitely a big metallic note but in this case it doesn’t ruin the beer. The rest of the flavor is light and refreshing slightly roasty mineral watery ale. It drinks super light, a good dark beer for summer.

Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a medium to large sized browned beige head. Soft malt on the nose, toast and a touch of cocoa. There’s a faint bit of paper behind it all, lurking in the background, gaining prominence as the beer warms. Medium bodied, toasty and warm. Soft roasted malt, a bit of cocoa and chocolate. Finishes up with some more roast notes, a touch of nutty malt. Overall pretty decent. hopdog (13267) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2010
