Pours a slightly cloudy dark brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt plus some touches of dark fruit. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt, roasted nuts and dark fruit. The finish is sweet and roasty with a malt aftertaste. Decent overall. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - AUG 23, 2006

hops and yeast in aroma. Some bitterness and roastiness and nuttiness. So complexity and higher alcohol is assimilated. Amber colour. Medium mouthfeel. j12601 (11831) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2009
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a dark cola brown to black with a medium beige head. Sweet malt, dark fruit, toast, and caramel on the nose. Sweet, thin to medium bodied, and a touch of roast. Finishes with a light booze note. madsberg (11770) - Søborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2005
Bottled: Amber coloured. Unclear. Brown coloured head. Light spiced, light grassy aroma. Flavour of liqourice sweetness and spice. Ends on a light sweet note. Strange brew.

On tap. Poured a hazy brownish amber with a thick white head that laced thickly and lasted throughout the beer. Aroma was full of malts with biscuit, caramel, hay and bread coming through with a hint of fruit. Flavor was similarly malty with lots of biscuits and bread with a bit of caramel sweetness to round out the beer. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2009

Pours hazy brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, yeast, fruits and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long warm, caramel, yeasty and fruity finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle. Woody toffee malt aroma. Chestnut with small head. Oak, light toffee malt and moderately bitter dry hay hops flavor. Tasty. hopscotch (11101) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Co-rated by Scraff... Clear, mahogany ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head.
Very well retained with nice, creamy, thick lacing. Chocolatey aroma with notes of cashews, chocolate chip cookie dough and dark breads. The flavor, although well-balanced and well-bittered, is a bit of a let down. Smells better than it tastes. Light to medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. Good brew, overall.
