Tap at the Monk. Toffee and caramel on the nose, slight malt sweetness in the taste which drops away quickly finishing a tad thin. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - MAR 6, 2011
From the tap poured a brown color with a good amount of head. Nice light malty sweet flavor with a quick finish. brokensail (16440) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
A: The pour is a dark brown color with a touch of red highlights to it as well. A finger of tan head caps it off.
S: Lots of nutty aromas along with plenty of cocoa, roasted malt, and dark chocolate. Toffee and caramel provide the bulk of the sweetness and there is a nice toasted malt character as well.
T: The flavor profile is pretty much the same as the smell. A nice sweetness of toffee and caramel, as well as milk chocolate. A touch of bitter dark chocolate, roasted malt, and the usual nuttiness.
M: Medium in body with a moderate carbonation to it.
D: A really solid brown ale. A nice, but not overwhelming, sweetness to it. Lubiere (13796) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2011

On draught at Maui Brewing Company in Lahaina, HI. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium tan head that diminishes to an outer ring eventually. Rings of lacing on the glass. Malty aroma with some dark fruit and coffee notes. Medium body with a rich malty character and flavors of roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate and raisins. The finish is malty with a lingering roasty sweetness left behind. Pretty good all around. BMan1113VR (7931) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 29, 2010

(on tap at carlsbad). Pours dark brown with off-white head. Aroma is smoky dark coffee. Taste is sweetish (but watery) and has a dry bitterness. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Finish is bitter.
