Medium brown color. Aroma is brown sugar, molasses and fruit. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty and sweet. Large doses of molasses and brown sugar. Hops are slightly bitter. Soft carbonation. A touch thin tasting. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 24, 2004

Tap. Looks pretty much like a stout, ’cept a little bit transluscent on the edges. Actually, it smalls like a stout as well, with some nice roastiness. But the flavor was just too thin and it left me a bit disappointed. Still drinkable though.
