Draft. Pours deep amber brown with a beige head. Sweet malts, milder roast, some toasted bread, a hint of bitterness, and a mildly sweet chocolate malty finish. Pretty good. mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2017
On tap at Mother Earth, pours a clear dark copper amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out a rather English character on the malts, with bready malt and sticky toffee pudding. Flavour is bold and balanced, with notes of sticky toffee, some dark dried fruits and English bready malt. Sticky palate, without being too sweet. Really nicely done. stevoj (5440) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 1, 2017
Grunt fill from Albertsons. Dark brown, let’s some light in, spare head. Faint roast grain aroma, nutty, sweet. Taste is much fuller, toasty, chocolate, nuts, brown sugar. Mild bitterness. Hard to believe it’s 8℅. Little warmth. But tasty as all get out... IndianaRed (4941) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2017
On Tap Clear deep chestnut brown. Thin wispy tan head and lacing. Rich clean toasted malt flavors. I think teh agave contribute to a clean well finished beer for a fairly high ABV. Smooth woody slight sharp finish. tiong (7517) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 29, 2015

Pours dark brown with a smooth head. Aroma of roasty malts, honey, hints of syrup and caramel. Taste is smooth, malty and caramely with some roastiness, honey and syrup. Finish is smooth, sweetish and slightly syrupy. Okay.
Draught @ Churchill’s Pub & Grille, San Marcos, CA. Pours a dark brown colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of sweet toffee, red berries and a bit of biscuit. Flavour of roastiness, almonds, chocolate, toffee and red berry sourness. Medium bodied. Quite dry berry finish. Good. olio (10472) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015

Pours copper with a small head. Malts and dark berries on the nose, faint hip notes and caramel. Caramel malts on the flavor, wood, berries and alcohol. Weird.
Draught @ Churchill’s Pub & Grille, San Marcos. Aroma has nuts and coffee. Flavour has sweet berry juice, some fruity hops and nuts. Nothing much, I like my browns less juicy. BeerandBlues2 (13719) - Escondido, California, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear brown with a medium, frothy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is toast and light coffee malt, dates and figs with light earthy hops. Flavor is faint agave, toast malt, light earthy hops and bitterness, dates and figs, light peppery Tequila with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

On tap at Mother Earth on Main St. in Vista. Decent dark brown pour with a khaki head that leaves thin lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, roasty, caramel. Kind of getting into stout territory with the roastiness and dark malts. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, nutty, with some coffee. chocolate, and toast. Full body, creamy texture, average carb., and sweet finish. I didn’t taste any difference from the use of agave, overall a smooth drinking experience.
