(12 ounce bottle - snifter) faint aroma, taste is bland, interesting style worth a try but nothing special.

3/25/2012. 12. oz bottle from a mixed case. Brown with an offwhite head. Chocolate and dark malt flavors with a smooth palate.

ChainGangGuy (4895) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Appearance: Pours a clear, amber-brown body with a very thin, very short-lived near-white head.

Smell: Aroma smelling a bit sweetly with malty hints of nutty caramel, chocolate, and mocha with a base breadiness to it and accented with light fruity notes.

Taste: Bready malts with light touches of milk chocolate, roast, and dark caramel. Faintly nutty. Passably sweet. Mildly fruity estery notes lending a hint of cherry. Woodsy hop character with a low bitterness, just enough to counter the sweetness. Finishes out dry, a bit nutty.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation. Fairly smooth going down.

Overall: A nicely malty brew with a sensibly slackened alcohol presence. I thought it was a pleasant and it was gone in a flash.

Dark reddish copper. Rich malty aroma, heavy with melanoidins. Almost bock like until you take a sip and are hit with a solid hop bitterness. A touch of astringency is the main detractor.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Bottle. Poured brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma of molasses and a light backing of toasted malt. The flavor found an initial milk chocolate, the mellowed out to toasted malt. Light to medium body and very subdue overall.

Hangover (1137) - oxford, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is malty with dominant chocolate notes. Nice mouthfeel, flavor is primarily chocolate with some nice roasty notes. Sort of tastes like a dunkelweizen. Very, very smooth and easy drinking.

I’m getting a smooth silky beer, with a touch of cola and soft nutty notes. its not very bitter and goes down quite smooth. great for sessions

nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2012
The aroma is like a porter blended with a lager. It has chocolate and coffee notes but also toasted malt and grassy hops. The appearance is light brown with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a grainy taste. The palate is average. Overall a lightly better than average beer, fine as something new to try but thats about it.

bottle. pours a clear light brown with almost no head. pleasant toasty, caramel malt nose. flavorful for a mild with caramel and toasted breads. pretty tasty+/-.

TheBeerGod (6233) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Dark ruby brown with a short, dense tan head. Aroma is malty with dark bread, toasted grains and caramel. Taste is big caramel and toasted grains, cocoa, dark bread, and soft chocolate. Body is light-medium with a soft, creamy carbonation. Finishes with more toasted grains, light chocolate, cocoa, dark bread, sweet malt and caramel.

yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Magic Hat +/- is a clear, very lively copper beer with a thick, elastic, off white foam. There’s a little sweet, dark malt in the nose with a touch of herbal, medicinal hops. It has a smooth, medium body. The finish is a little gritty. There’s not a ton of flavor up front. Upon the finish, a resiny, botanical bitterness rolls in with the sweetness of cake or bread. It lingers for a while. This is kind of like a lightened-up brown ale. It’s mild enough to be inoffensive and it’s pretty unique.
