Tap @ their NW spot... Poured dark opaque brown -- almost black -- with a tan head. Aroma of alcohol and roasted grains. Foamy palate with flavors of coffee, hazelnuts and a creamy, vanilla bean sweetness. A little alcohol and a warming finish that contained smoked, malted barley. cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2009
On tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland. Black, tan head. Sweet vanilla and caramel aroma. Light oak flavor with a vanilla sweetness. Nothing special, but lucky to have tried this brew. BuckeyeBoy (8281) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2009

Pours out a black with some red highs topped with a nice head. Aroma was of sweetness a good roast and some smoke maybe. Tast was much of the same. Plent of roast and a charcole tast even. Not bad pretty thick on the palate.
