Even better than they dubbel down. This one was a hit, we even got a 2nd pitcher and had to get people to take the blonde for us so we could get some more of this. BeerLimey (2155) - California, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Clear reddish amber hue. Grainy malty aroma. Malty palate, mild cocoa notes, dry nuttiness, fairly bitter bite in the finish. MayorQuimby (100) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - AUG 7, 2005
Tap at brewpub. Pours brown with a fluffy white head, some lacing. Aroma is nutty and malty. Great balance between malt, nutty flavors, and the hops. Very well rounded. Medium bodied, left flavors hanging around in my mouth. Out of all the SBBC brews that I’ve tried, this is the best of the lot. BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Smelled and looked great, but was a little watery in the mouth. Nice nut and caramel flavors blended together. ucsbdude (68) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - MAR 13, 2003
Very refreshing. Clean, nutty, malt taste with a creamy finish. Very little head. Deep appetizing color.
