Deep brownish color, with a thin head. Very malty and chocolate in tastes. Very good beer. AskForJenny (1086) - Ontario, New York, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Thick but dissipating head. Pours an impenetrable brown black color. Nice beer. Dark chocolate and coffee notes. Good times. Sregnar35 (1033) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 29, 2006
Tastes like a homebrew. Pours dark reddish brown, with no real head. Aroma is sweet mollasses, sugar, barley malt extract. Flavor tastes like alot of my homebrews, which aren’t great but good. Somewhat sticky feel in the mouth, interesting. whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2006
Deep copper body with a creamy beige head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, cherry, and spice. Flavor is rich, malty, and nutty with notes of cocoa and subtle roast. Finish is well-hopped with substantial stealth bitterness. Tastes likes a big, bitter American brown ale. Decent beer. JFURYCAT (1078) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2006
Dark red in color and a pleasant taste accentuated by some sweet malts, a bit of nuttiness and fruit. I didn’t notice the alcohol content that much. It reminds me of the beers I used to drink in Plattsburgh (ironic?). Its well balanced, has some compexity but offers nothing outrageous.

UPDATED: JAN 31, 2006 12 oz. Bottle: Pours a deep, dark brown color, with a long lasting (fades into a whispy ring) off white head, apx. two-three fingers tall. The aroma is of bread, malts, plums, syrup. the tastes are of plums, chocolate, yeast, a touch of alcohol, liccorice, berries, and malts. The mouthfeel is a little tart and brief, yet a lingering taste of chocolate and dates/plums. Good, but not great. Not the most complex beer I’ve had, but definitly pretty tasty. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Murky dark brown. Scent of butterscotch, wood, maple, brown sugar and caramlized plums. Very bright and fresh taste up front, lacking depth but still very enjoyable - flavors of wood, plums, brown sugar and some chewy bready flavors. A beer that could be a brown ale and could be a scotch ale and could be a strong ale - it’s an interesting multi-style hybrid that has it’s own place. It’s good to find beer like this.

Unclear brown with a tan head. Sweet and sour fruit and malt aroma with citrus, orange and pineapple and a hint of liquorice. Quite sweet flavor of chocolate and a bit of hop. Foamy mouthfeel. Ordinary but frinkable. Saarlander (1920) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 10, 2005
A nice hops flavor to this one, a bit of pepper, and enough malt flavor, creates a well balanced brew, I could drink this one everyday! Thanks Secret santa! HogTownHarry (7065) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle (12oz). Poured dark clear mahogany with a small off-white head. Aroma of lightly roasted malt, tart berry fruit and a hint of mustiness. Fair hit of alcohol off the top, then the sweet light roast malt enters, balanced by fruit, average somewhat bitter linger. Very pleasant - average body, a little flat but I guess that’s the style.
