22 oz. bottle from the Yosemite Valley Store in Yosemite National Park. Quite a bargain at $3.25, and there weren’t other bargains to be had at this place. Pours a dark brown, opaque from what I can tell, with a finger of creamy, foamy beige head. Aroma of lots of nuts, leaves, toasted malts, earth, and chocolate. Flavor of toasty, nutty malts, leaves, a little dark chocolate, and cold coffee with cream. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty, nutty mouthfeel. Good porter/brown ale or whatever they’re going for here. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2013 Nose of sweet roasted malts and hints of nuts. Pours a deep brown with a mostly diminishing tan head and minimal lacing. The taste is nutty with caramel with roasted malt notes and a smidgeon of chocolate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, this is a very enjoyable brown ale which I hope to be able to drink again. jredmond (8288) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2012

Aroma is roasted with coffee, licorice and cocoa – feels like a stout. Flavour has nuts, roastiness and coffee – feels like a brown ale. And actually a very typical brown ale. And a good one.
