Bottle. Pours with a deep, hazed, chestnut hued brown body. Near black. A small off-white head that is somewhat slow to fade. Aromas are nutty, sawdust, cola, brown sugar, hazelnut, really dry, brown malt (seems). Dry, roasty, leathery, tobacco. Flavors are roasty, leathery, nutty, chocolate, fudge. A bit of coffee. A bit of an odd, lactic twang. That said it is tasty. Really malty, brown sugar (yet dry). Brown malt? Overall its pretty tasty. Lighter carbonation. Dry for what it is, lighter bodied. Good and nutty, roasty with lasting duration of flavors. MikeyMalts (64) - Davis, California, USA - NOV 6, 2011

Don’t know what everyone else didn’t like about this, but the aroma was nice roasted malt. Also a nice flavor, roast and coffee.. Palate was medium body, would like thicker, and finished dry. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011

[Bottle] Dark reddish brown appearance decent head formation. Plenty of dry roasted nuttiness and chocolate in the aroma as well as a light fruitiness. Pretty light but smooth on the palate, chocolate coffee cream flavors, hazelnut and a mild citrussy bitterness in the finish. Tastey and not too heavy. keepersj12 (3137) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2011
One of the best browns around. Malty sweet but but not too sweet. The aroma is English malt . True to the style. Very nice indeed. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 19, 2011
22oz bottle. Rating #87. Real dark amber/brown pour with a nice looking tan head and spotty lacing. Pretty big roasted coffee aroma with a bitter dark chocolate aroma as well, real nice. Flavor is a little lighter than the aroma, more of a toastiness than roast. Pretty easy drinking and well done. (1655)
