12oz bottle (Old Notes-Brewed by Chicago Brewing Co.)-Pours a medium copper with a decent head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste of the same with some slight hops coming in. This light to medium bodied brew is not bad. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 17, 2007
On tap at Prairie Rock. Poured a clear blood red with absolutely zero head after about 45 seconds. Sweet, candied caramel steals the show on the nose.. not much room for anything else besides a hint of vanilla that wafted through. The flavor was just like the nose.. sweet caramel and candy with a pinch of vanilla.. mild floral bitterness is in there, but doesn’t stand up to the sweetness bomb.. some sharp boozy points peek through for no good reason. Just about medium-bodied and too sweet. Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Not a bad red, but nothing memorable. Coppery in color, carmely in nose and flavor. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Had this one on draught in Elgin, Illinois. Your standard everyday red. Quite malty, caramel malts? Not much else going on here. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Color of Killians, a reddish/dark amber with not much of a cream-colored head. Moderately malted in aroma and flavor, but my palate was somewhat skewed after some lingering chocolate from the beer prior to this one. I will have to try again.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 Brownish copper with a modest fizzy head, this has a caramel malt aroma with an earthy, herbal hopping to it. It’s medium bodied and light on carbonation. The flavor continues quite malty with a dirty hop bitterness on the finish. Acceptable.muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 2, 2004

Sample at the Elgin location. Deep, clear copper; malty, earthy aroma...wet black soil with a few drops of vanilla spilled. Very malty, caramel flavor, with perhaps a touch of mint and oregano. Not bad at all, especially for a style I usually dismiss.
