Clear ruby brown with medium tan head. Aroma is sweet toasty, caramel, and light roasty -- quite inviting. Taste is sweet, caramel, toasty, and light peach. Light carbonation and a light/medium body. deyholla (11900) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 14, 2012
On tap at the brewpub. Pours near black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer and laces slightly. Aroma has a good amount of deep roast as well as a bit of nuttiness. Flavor is heavy on the roast and dark grains up front with the nuttiness coming out in the finish. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a nearly opaque with a frothy, spotty-lacing tan head. Sweet, doughy dark caramel malty nose has some grainy Munich malt character. Body starts fairly full with some mild dark caramel malty sweetness along with some toasty doughy notes toward the finish. Skyview (6093) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub/restaurant in Wisconsin Dells. Pours a clear dark cola caramel brew with a thick and lasting off-white head and a good stick lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, toasted nuts, sweet toffee and flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of toasted dark bread, chocolate, dried figs with a touch of banana and caramel. Finish is slightly bitter with a creamy and bready chocolate aftertaste.

Very dark red color with no head. Aroma is completely missing. Slight coffee taste with a pinch of malt. Unfortunately boring. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Near black, wisp of head which lasted an hour. Grapy-chocolaty nose, smooth cocoa body, fairly full; chewy, late robustness, a great "dark" session beer. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - AUG 7, 2006
(Tap) Pours dark brown with little head. Malty sweetness evident throughout, not not overpowering. Caramel and toffee notes as well. Good mouthfeel makes this one really enjoyable. One of my favorites from Moosejaw. Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Tap @ brewery. Malty caramel for aroma. Dark body with a red tynt and vitualy no head to speak of. Body was light bodied with a sweet caramel flavor. Smooth beer on the palate with some mild sweet malt aftertaste. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 9, 2005
