Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

A reddish copper ale with a thick frothy mocha head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light fruity notes, faint molasses, alcohol warmth, not bad. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, so-so. On tap at brewery. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2003
(draft) Clear dark brown color. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, malty, lightly hoppy. Taste is mildly sweet, malty body, finishing with nice Earthy hoppiness. Medium body and fairly smooth. Bov (13264) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - OCT 28, 2009
courtesy of fiulijn - clear brown colour with a poor head retention; aroma of wood and nut; good malt body and with some sweetness; a solid bitterness before a finish of bitter almonds and cabbage; quite soapy bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a reddish-dark brown body with a small beige head. Aroma of wood, molasses, licorice, toasted oats, nuts, cocoa, and coconut. Flavor of cocoa, burnt malt, caramel, and some fruit with a bitter finish. Complex and unique, but somewhat unbalanced.

Bottle acquired in trade with FlactoAlto (thanks!). Poured a deep reddish / brown with an averaged sized off white head. Lots of small floaters. Aromas of caramel, light chocolate, roasted malts, brown sugar and all around malty. Softer tastes of caramel, roasted malts, and chocolate. Alcohol content hidden. A bit on the thin side. jcwattsrugger (12524) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 7, 2011
on tap-pours a light brown head and copper color. Aroma is sweet medium malt-licorice. Taste is sweet medium malt-licorice/roasty, some spice hops. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Dark brown pour with a nice tan head. Aroma has some roasted malt, banana, wheat bread and light toffee. Flavor has some nice notes, but its a bit overwhelmed by an alcohol flavor that isn’t so welcomed. I get some good malt, caramel, light yeast, some light buttery notes...but the finish is a bit hot and bitter. An odd one here. hopscotch (11245) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Bottle... Dark, cloudy, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, beige head. Terrific retention. The malty, caramel aroma also offers vinous notes and a hint of molasses. Bold, beefy flavor with chewy malts and restrained alcohol. Good balance; moderately sweet and just bitter enough. Full-bodied with medium carbonation. Finishes mildly bitter and warming. Kudos to FlacoAlto for supplying the bottle! jercraigs (10886) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
It has got a monkey on it, it has to be good right? Ruby brown body, small tan head. Sweet fruity booze in the aroma hints at brown sugar with a very muted roast malt touch. Lightly roasty acidity dominates my flavour impression over the muted malt. It’s a touch light and a bit flat, it feels like maybe they were trying to make it cask like. Interesting but not for me today. [8%? Wow! I did not taste that at all!] Thanks for the rarity MDS!
