Bottle thanks to Swalden_28. pours out a light brown topped with a small head.A nice aroma of nuts and some sweetness. Tast of some roast and a little sweetness maybe some chocolate. A pretty good brown. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle: Light brown color, light head. Nose of light earthy hops and a caramelly maple note. The flavor is chewy with nutty cocoa note, mild chocolate and a sweet nuggat overtone. Decent brown ale, in the middle, decent body, robust tail. Respectable. SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 5, 2008
Bottle, from Kegs & Barrels, McKinney, TX. Pours a nice translucent brown with beige head with minimal retention. Aroma of slight roast & chocolate. Flavor was pleasant, nice roasty chocolate with dark fruit notes. Palate was light-medium feel with medium-high carbonation. Not bad...... drewbeerme (3920) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2008

Reddish in color almost brown. Ok head. Maltiness, carmel, and some toastines in the aroma. Medium body. Smooth and light. Not as much in the taste slightly nutty.

Bottle shared by jsquire at jsquire’s. Very small tan head that mostly diminished, spotty amounts of lacing, opaque, no carbonation observed, and a brown hue. Nose was malty, caramel, roasty, and chocolate. Ditto for the flavor with some bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel and light in body. Quaffable but nothing super special about this beer. Just okay for me. oreogobbler (228) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Pours a deep scarlet red to black, thin filmy head. Sweet molasses and brown sugar aroma, nice smoke notes. Smells like BBQ.
Sweet liquorice upfront followed by smoked malts with a milk chocolate finish. Palate is thin but some what smooth. If it were thicker I’d enjoy this beer much much more. slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Draught. Smoky sweet nose, coffee and nutty malts. Ruby-brown with nearly no head. A bit bland but what’s there is good, mellow sweet coffee with some light bitterness. Thin, but not to too much of a fault. Goodgrief (2039) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 18, 2008
Mar. 2007 - Dark, dark brown, little head or lacing. Really roasty aroma. Robust roast and nutty flavor with a strong smokiness. The smokiness really made it interesting. Not bad. thedm (6225) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 1, 2008
This bottled brew from JSquire at a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent uncarbonated brown colored body and a poor lacing. The smooth stout like mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish. The yummy flavor contained notes of dark malt brown malt and mild caramel. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
