Brownish in color with an off-white head. Sweet malt with molasses and toffee notes being the strongest. A touch of earthiness, and a nice toasted note. The flavor has a great molasses flavor with a little earthy and spicy character to it. Plenty of bread and toast, too. I enjoyed this one. bhensonb (15619) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear cola with a 2 finger foamy beige head. The aroma is quite roasty - but like a toasted bread thing. Body is at least medium. Flavor is nutty/malty with noble hop indications. It’s a little bready, but not so much as to be yeasty. Call it balanced. Call it tasty. Finishes towards darkly bready - but with a little less sugar it could be finishing towards an abbey dubbel. It’s really good. djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with large creamy beige head lasting awhile leaving spotty lacing along the glass. The aroma is raisin malt and yeast. Medium mouthfeel with a roast and caramel and slight mettalic finish. A decent dunkel.
