on tap-pours a tan head and mahogany color. Aroma is molasses-caramel some hops. Taste is molasses-caramel some hops. Alphadelic (2237) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 19, 2013
A big, roasted but aroma with some iron to it. Smooth caramel and chocolate are overwhelmed by a pretty intense bitterness. A lot more than I was expecting. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 17, 2007
On tap at Corvallis brewpub--Dry and hoppy amber colored beer with a nice roasted aftertaste. It appears that OT is more concerned with flavor than alcohol content in their beers. Nice! ClarkVV (6708) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 13, 2004
2004 draught. Great mahogany brown appearance, mostly hazy with some light cherry reds peaking out and a small off-white head. Aroma of dark fruits and chocolate. Lightly salty and hoppy as well. Flavor is a mix of chocolate, sticky toffee, brown sugar and a strange almost beef jerky like saltiness. Ends dry and too watery. The yeast has gone mad and has some very strange notes, or is that stale hops? The roast seems a bit out of place on the light and watery finish. Starts out well but then just falls apart. That happens some times. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 9, 2005

Brown color, nice head, nose of light crystal malts & fruity hops. Light roast & a bitter hop flavor. The finish is a bit tangy & too bitter for me. Next!
