Brown color. Caramel aroma, light herbs. Thin body, caramel flavor, some residual sugars, light chocolate malt, but a rather unpleasant, even if light, herbal touch. Not my kind. ghill1218 (9) - 29 palms, California, USA - SEP 11, 2007 does not count
good dark beer, light coffee, good aroma. balanced with a short afrter taste. beerme420 (50) - Corona, California, USA - SEP 11, 2007

On tap. The flavor was really thin, it didn’t match the dark color at all. Aroma was barely there. Probably wouldnt drink again. Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 6, 2007
Bottle from Di Raimondo’s in Paso Robles, CA. Very dark chocolate brown...porter like color. Beige head with some lacing. Nutty cocoa nose with some chocolate as well. Taste is a hoppy, nutty treat...good malts and a subtle bitter finish. Enjoyed it.

clear dark brown, short lived fine beige head still manages to leave a bit of lace, sweet nutty chocolate aroma with earthy hops, well balanced malt flavor with nice chocolate and mild bitterness, a typical brown ale

A little burnt toastish flavor going on in this malty syrupy dark brown (not black at all) beer. On draft at DiPiazza in Long Beach, CA pintsize (1042) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2007
Bottle. Dark ruby amber, clean and criap ruby appearance. Short lived head. I picked up hints of coffee in the aroma. I also tasted hints of coffee as well. Would be more enjoyable with a little less water. Tastes and smells like watered down coffee. DocLock (10706) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle. Deep brown pour that has a great ruby shade through light, and about 2 fingers of khaki head. Aroma is dark malt, brown sugar, hops, chocolate. Tastes rich, chocolatey malty, with some brown sugar and hop notes. This one comes off like a scwarzbier. golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Draft. Light brown color. Sweet malt aroma with hints of roasted malt. The flavor is similar, pretty good mouthfeel.
