Ed5388 (3480) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours light brown with a khaki colored head. Aroma in nutty, light roasted malt, and cocoa powder. Taste mimics the nose.

ganache (5898) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Canned. Nose nutty, heavily malty with light spice and earth, deep dark toffee and faint hops. Really earthy and deserving of the name. Pours a beautiful mahogany gradient down to chestnut, very slow carbonation with a dense and rocky beige head. Taste semi-sweet but seems dry at first, touch of tartness overshadowing light bitterness, but above-average maltiness with a hint of nuts and fruit that melts into the background. Clean medium-full body with just a touch of alcohol.

60minuteman (1714) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2016
Can. Nut, bread, caramel, tree and hop. Mild spice. More bread, mild sweetness and a light lager malt alcohol content. Kind of a meal. Well done but simple.

beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2007
Sampled on tap at GWBF 2007. Poured a clear brown with a quickly disappearing off-white head. Light but pleasant aroma of nuts and caramel malt. The flavor is a bit more earthy with nuts and caramel malt again. A bit dry with some light bitterness at the finish.

Draught at Village Pourhouse, not a bad beer, has a nice hint of chocolate with a mix of a toasted sugar finishing with a light bitterness.

mansquito (6435) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Union Hall, Brooklyn tap ($5): Pours a brown color with a beige head... looks and feels like a brown ale. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, nuts. Beer is very malty, but has a definite undertone of lager taste. It is almost as if you try to make a brown ale out of a lager. Not overly complex, but drinkable and pretty tasty. A solid beer, if not anything really special.

3.1
alobar (3784) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2014
Pours medium brown with no head. Aroma of toasted malt, nuts, and caramel. Sweet malt flavor with caramel, toasted malt, and nuts. Nice beer.

3.1
Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Sample at Fette Sau. Clear pale brown color with a thin beige head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, nuts and mild earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
