Had at the Hop Leaf in Chicago. Malty sweet and deliciously spicy! I think I still like the Blonde better, though.

Tasted on tap, many times, most recently 8/15/09. Pours dark brown, semi-hazy and with a cream colored head. Aroma is nutty, with dried fruits and toffee. Flavor starts with milk chocolate and nuts, moves towards a minerally-sweet mid-palate, and a semi-sweet finish with some alcohol and general chalk peaking through. Especially on a big gulp. Palate is medium-thick and syrupy throughout, finishing rather long. Overall, I must say that this beer just doesnt come together for me. It is a touch thin, maybe a bit simplistic. And there is just something about the flavor that doesnt work.

tmoreau (4020) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Sampled on tap at Brixies 75th anniversary beer tapping in Brookfield, IL. Poured into my fluted fest glass a brown hue with amber tones showing through, a modest, off white, bubbly head and light streaks of lacing. The aroma was toasty malt, caramel and some sweetness as dark fruit. The flavor was the same notes with a sweet, syrupy texture and very low bitterness. Nice combo of flavor notes,..okay.

JanVittrup (243) - Kbenhavn V, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2009
Dark brown, fine head, settles quickly. Malty aroma. Some fruit. Not very complex. Good balance, but not sweet and a little bitter/dry. Fizzy on the tongue, thin. Ok, not special. Nice for the average occasion. Could be ok in the sun.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Dark brown pour with some reddish highlights. Short, off-white head with flecks of lace. Malty aroma with brown sugar and light spice. The flavor is lightly smoked malts, yeast, brown sugar and maybe a bit of chocolate. The mouthfeel was thin to medium and somewhat dry towards the end.

Bottle, 33cl - Clear dark red brown beer with a large frothy cream head. Aroma is malty with notes of roasted malts, yeast, and dried fruits. Flavor is sweet malty with notes of chocolate, dried fruits, nuts and butterscotch. Very good for being an industrial beer!
