Pottle shared by puzzl. Pours a deep dark copper/brown and a thin head. Aroma is light toffee, sligiht diacetyl, caramel, toast and a bit stale and crackery. Slightly sweet flavor, toasty, light chocoalte malt, mostly dusty and nutty, with a slightly slick diacetyl. Mild sweetness in the edn with an herbal finish.

Bottle Pours a very dense, dark brown. Rather thin coarse dark tan head that quickly recedes but maintains a thin cramy ring. Spotty lacing. Woody, smokey aroma. Lots of chocolaty light roasted notes as well. Flavor is heavy on the toasted malts, cocolate and grassy bitter componant.
Slightly bitter astringent trailer. A lager with some backbone.
Interesting, but one is enough. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is toasty and fairly bready. Taste is really quite toasty, but has a nice bit of crispness to it. Decent, but nothing special. andrewje41 (4243) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2015
22 oz bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a near black color with a fading head. Nice toasty malt aroma. Toasty, nutty malt flavor, and quite nice. Almost a little towards the finish as well. Easy drinking dark lager, and a unique beer for me. Enjoyable. BillKismet (4137) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2002
Black--amber hued beer with creamy, slightly browned head. The aroma improved markedly as this chilled beer warmed. Rounded roasted malting prevailed in smell and taste, as the beer finished with a coffee note. This divine offering has some robustnessp to the body, but is crisp in finish like a lager. A beer more people should try on their palates.

Tap at Fest:Brown, beige head. Nothing much here the antiseptic taste is all that is noticeable jrob21 (3802) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Pours a deep brown with a frothy off white head that adds a little creamy texture to your early sips. It actually sticks around for a while. Flavor has some nice toasty grain aspects to it and a candi sugar sweetness that is pleasant. A step up from a straight lager to add a little more depth and complexity to your drink. Faint grass and herb aromas. Finish is much the same from that hop profile. Solid sessionable beer. shigadeyo (3788) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #45 for this beer.
Bottle from brewolf...thanks Michael! - Pours with a creamy tan head on a dark cola body. Dark bready malt on the nose, with light yeast, baking spices, and a pleasant blend of nuttiness and milkiness. Taste is pumpernickel bread--pretty dry with a hint of brown sugar and a pretty milky finish. There’s a sharpness in there too--not sure if that’s the hops or a little roasted malt. Creamy and smooth in the mouth. Didn’t know what to expect, as I know little about this style, but I was pleasantly surprised. puzzl (3264) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 16, 2008
Bottle from someone I forget who. Smells a lot like a pumpkin beer, or just pumpkin pie spice, kind of odd, but not too bad. Sweet a chewy flavor, easily drinkable, cookie, veggies, perhaps a bit flawed, but fairly nice.
