Sophisticated and dramatic, this ale brings out the poet in everyone. The deep brown color and remarkably clean finish make it an Old Town legend. Rich and malty, with hints of chocolate and nuts from Belgium specialty malts.

Pours a deep brown color with aroma of nuts. A clean tasting beer, almost tastes carbonated. Aftertaste of toasted malt with a hint of chocolate. Overall a decent beer.

A little roasty, a little nutty in the aroma. No head at all. Oh wow, this is really bad. This tastes like it was overcarbonated and then wetn flat. Not good. I’m not liking this brewery too much. However, for this beer, with all these high scores, I’m wondering if their lines need to be cleaned or something else has happened to this beer recently.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 15, 2008
On tap at the brewery, listed at 6.2%. Pours with a light brown head covering a clear brown body. Malty aroma. Tastes a bit like a second running of a stout. Slightly burnt coffe malts, and some nuts. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel with light carbonation.

Draught at the brewpub. Hazy dark brown with a nice creamy head. Malty caramel aroma with some earthy hops. Malty and nutty with some wood, sweetness, caramel, and light hops. Medium body with medium carbonation. Smooth and pleasant overall, with nice maltiness.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2006 Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown. Dominated by roasty malt. Light bodied wtih clean mouthfeel. Despite the low hop rate the addition of hazelnut is barely noticable. Instead this beer is carried by the roasty malt. Salty finish with low bitterness. A good brown!
