The aroma was by far the best aspect of this beer: very malty and rich with almost no hop boquet. The beer pours a dark brown with a small very short lived head. The flavor is the worst aspect. It tastes a lot like my first homebrew. The strong malts cannot compete with the off tasting yeast characteristics. Acidic aftertaste. mansquito (6319) - Nueva York, New York, USA - APR 10, 2008
I drank a bunch of these beers. It looks like a nice brown ale and tastes and smells like a nice brown ale, but that is all. Good brown ale to chug, but not much good for anything else. Mostly just a gimmick brew. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 18, 2008
Dark amber with an off-white head. Nice nutty, malty aroma. Flavor is malty with a touch of smoke. A little on the thin side. Not what I expected from Hebrew ... a bit of a disappointment. An okay beer, I guess. JustinFromAL (125) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Bottle. Dark deep brown with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with some bread. Flavor is mild to be called "bold". Mudled, not bad but not great. daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2008
brown pour, small tan head. Malty, nutty, and pumpernickel aromas. Flavor is malty and pretty watery. I am not impressed with this brewery again.

Poured a clear dark chestnut brown with a small tan head. There was an aroma of roasted malt, a slight sweetness and a hint of chocolate. The flavor was of earthy malt with a dry and slightly bitter finish. Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2008
faint aroma of malt. Deep brown with a small tan head. Malty smooth at the start turning tingly on the tongue wiht a finish that is a little bitter. Thin in the mouth. harrisoni (18407) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2009
Bottle from Utobeer. Very dark brown colour with thin disappearing head. Some dry malt on aroma, some yeastiness. Mouthfeel is ok, but nothing interesting, flavours are some sour fruit and some dry malt. Bit toasty. Bit of nuttiness I suppose, some drying on tongue on finish. Fine, but rather bland and dull I thought. Not even as interesting as a British premium bitter of this strength. The malts are there, but don’t impart sufficient flavour. No bad or off flavours.

Bottle 355 ml bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Appearance: clear mid brown with midsized creamy contrasting top. Some lace shown 4-
Nose: Initial strong hint of brown malts , fudge and chocolate. Finish of brown malts with molasses.
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied with soft texture. Brown malts with grainy roast. Slight bitterness . Very straight forward with lightly off centre finish. Some hop bite would help . Toasty plain brown ale.
Bottle. Pours clear mahogany with a lacy but scant tan head. The aroma is light, a bit nutty, with hints of caramel and chocolate. And a little alcohol. Medium body and fairly active carbonation. A bit of chocolate in the taste, then the lightly bitter finish shows up, along with some light acidity. Underwhelming.
