Draft. Aroma is a sweet yeast with some Carmel malt. Appearance is a dark brown with some lacing. Taste is almost of a dark esb. Some sweetness is in there as well. Palate is pretty mild. Overall, a good beer. Would buy again.

Bottle from Moonspin. Deep amber pour with a bubbly tan head. Nutty, toffee and roasted aroma with light floral components. Flavor is similar with a dry nutty finish. Not bad. jkwood04 (5474) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 13, 2014
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep brown with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light roasted and chocolate and caramel malts plus light hops and light dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad just mediocre. scarletfire65 (1546) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Draft at Asylum in Jerome, AZ. Aroma is chocolate and toasted malt. Sweet chocolatey malt character. Earthy, grassy, touch of soy sauce. Bitter finish. Decent. foamdaddy99 (6) - Vancouver, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2001 does not count
Interesting taste warm with heavy hints of hops. Very malty with hints of chocolate.
Nice dark color. Strong taste of alcohol, and a nice mouthfeel. Overall a very decent beer.

2005 Great Arizona Beer Festival.
Dark amber with a roaty malt aroma.
Flavor is a bit watery, sweet and malty and the alcohol is well hidden.
Not bad. ClarkVV (7050) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 1, 2005
2005 bottle, I assume (correct me if I’m wrong, Sebastian) graciously sent by FlacoAlto for no other reason than to let me try some Arizona micros. How about that?!BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2006
Initially, a small head appears, a sort of marble-cream-white, but it quickly flees to the edges of the glass. Smells of prunes and toffee with some light, dry, earthy roast. The roast is quite light and lets in some chocolate and light soy notes. No hops noted in the nose. The aroma strength is fairly weak, though. Flavor begins with a chocolate-fudge note, sweet and malty, with dry, earthy toffee lingering. Reminds me of what a good cigar and some espresso might taste like, only very faint tobacco and coffee notes are apparent. Very dry on the end, as I mentioned now about 3 times, but a sweet chocolate is there for balance. Very low carbonation, medium body and a slightly watery consistency. No alcohol noted. Chocolate covered prunes linger on and I find little in the way of yeast, though I’m not surprised as the beer seems to be filtered. Hmm, odd, I liked this beer much more than my score indicates, but I guess it’s a tough style for me, statistically.
Dark red/orange colour with minimal head. Nose is caramel malts with a faint hint of alcohol. Was a little thin and finished with some alcohol bite. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2006
On tap at the dog track - A clear deep red beer with very little head. Not much of an aroma. Light malt favor with a balanced bitterness. Very light alcohol warming. Medium body with some residual sweetness. Not bad. Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2006
Bottle shared with Jerc, Hogtown Harry, and MDS, Mike’s bottle. Dark ruby brown, small white head. Nice burnt sugar, dark fruit, sweet malt aroma. Decent taste - more burnt sugar, dark malt. A little watery. Some alcohol. Not bad, a new state for me.
