Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brown pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, nuts, some slight toffee and biscuit, yeast notes come in as well. Taste is sweet caramel, biscuit, bread, some nuts, touch of fruity notes, finishing fairly sweet. Pretty decent! Zymurgeist2 (2238) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Full caramel and roast malts on the nose. Clear brownwith reddish tinge and taupe head. Great sweet malt with alcohol on the finish. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2010
On tap at Pumphouse poured a clear dark reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of toffee, earthiness, light carmel and a hint of nuts. Palate was medium bodied and smoth. Flavors of toffee, carmel, cocoa and light nuttiness with a smooth lingering malty finish. Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 Deep brown; frothy, but thinnish head; nice lace left behind. Lively carbonation; somewhat light-bodied. Big roasted malts, sharp chocolate, toasted bread, nuts. Some coffee, too. Hardly any sweetness. Bitterness and sourness follow up in the finish. Middle-of-the-road brown. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - JAN 27, 2005
draft: looks like a brown ale. Has a malty, roasty aroma. but the flavor is initially lactic. However, w/ food, it turns into a middle of the road brown ale & the lactic/sour qualities disappear

Draught. Body is dark brown. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, nuts), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation. Very watery, very simple, and too sour to be pleasant.
