Strangely, there is almost no aroma to this beer! The color is really pleasing, an almost stout look, and froths similarly. It has a very hearty substantial flavor, followed by a somewhat sweet aftertaste.
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruit and bread. Medium body, licorice, cocoa, light bitterness, decent. tcon25 (848) - Duvall, Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Stop #8. Draft pour at brewery,dark amber pour thin head. Coffee malt aroma. Flavor is mostly coffee and malt not much different than the aroma. j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUN 2, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear browned amber with a thin white head. Not sure where the dark fits in here. Soft malt on the nose. A touch floral. Soft malt, medium bodied, light floral and malt. Slow malt and a touch of bitterness on the finish. Another forgettable nothing beer.

VJ. EK. All that. Dark amber pour to plastic, with a laying foam head. Nutty, heavy malt aroma and flavor. Everything an amber should be. This was quite nice. Nutty linger. Pretty good.
Tap. Pours a clear amber brown body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is toasty and lightly roasty malt with a little light floral hops. The flavor is dry and toasty with just the lightest hint of roast and coffee. A little sweetness on the finish with a touch of chocolate. Light to medium bodied with soft fizzy carbonation, finishes a bit watery with some grainy malt. Not so bad, but a bit thin overall.

Draft @ Taphouse, Seattle. Dark tea-coloured amber with an off white head. Dark caramel, a bit bready, with some hard roast character. Dry roast finish, very little hop character. Medium bodied. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Draft at College Inn. Pours light brown / dark amber with khaki head. Malt-driven nose - nutty, caramel, some roast. Taste: pleasant and drinkable. Biscuit, caramel, toast; on the sweet side, but with a mildly roasty finish. Medium- body, smooth texture. Overall: remarkably solid offering from a local brewery I almost never drink. New year’s resolution: drink more of the locals. In fact, remind me of this next year -- 2014-2015 academic year, I will rate at least one beer from every seattle brewer in the RB database. onceblind (9676) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Clear dark dark amber under a thin light beige tight creamy head. Nose of dark nutty sweet malty toffee with a biscotti undertone. Big nutty toffee flavor with a caramel amber backbone with a slight booziness. Not a whole lot of hops, but it doesn’t need it. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Draught. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is very toasty and slightly roasty to me. Taste, on the other hand, is roastier than anything else, and ends up tasting like a slightly carbonated chilled coffee. Fairly pleasant drink.
