Bottle with friends. Chocolate and coffee notes. Body is almost a little thin, and I kept getting a slightly burnt note towards the finish which was a little off putting, but overall a solid brown. hopdog (13315) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2006

Soda pop Sweet brown, not my type of beer. Above average carbonation. Tiny wisp of a head. Nutty aroma. They advertise, and I get only a minimum of:chocolate malt, caramel malt, and four other malts , and hints of coffee. Northdown and Fuggles hops, but I do not get much hops.
