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. arkurzynski (2415) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 19, 2012
Darkest of brown, almost black with thin tan head. Light roasted malt/coffee, Munich-type malts, and a little licorice. Flavor has smooth lager Munich malt sweetness followed by velvety cocoa/coffee roast finish. Enjoyable. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 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. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 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.

On-tap @ the Brewpub.
Deep mahogany color and a nice tan head of foam that leaves sheets of lacing behind it. Aroma of dark chocolate and toasted munich-style malts.
Light roasted malt flavor for bitterness and some rich chocolate in the flavor. Nutty aspect reminded me a lot of a rich nut brown ale. Medium-to-full bodied and quite smooth.
Says on the menu that this won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival. I can see why. 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

Very dark red color with no head. Aroma is completely missing. Slight coffee taste with a pinch of malt. Unfortunately boring.
