Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours with a large tan head over a deep brown body. Aroma of coffee, caramel, toffee, and leather. Taste is coffee, chocolate, spice, nutshells and a touch sour (maybe?). Creamy bubbles, and a dry finish. WakeandBake (549) - Greenville, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Bottle . A very dark brown to black color pour with a thin lasting tan cap , spotty lacing left , lots of tiny carbonation bubbles . Aroma of bitter chocolate , fruity hops , some malty caramel and maybe light toffee notes , slightly nutty. Flavor is like a cola/coffe mix with some sweetness left on your lips , mild bitterness , but lacking the huge sweetness of other Old Ales , nutty , with a plum type finish and some lingering alcohol notes . Light body for the style , slightly oily texture , quite drinkable , but watch out it sneeks up on you after 3 or 4 bottles eh.
It is hard to rate this as an Old Ale , Im on my 3rd 6 pack of it now and I find it to be a really good dark ale or maybe a brown with a high ABV for around $11 , call it what you want im buying it again . Thank you Schmohz bigtaster (979) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 17, 2009
On tap @ brewpub. Dark brown with off white head. Nice aroma of some spice, toffee, caramel. The flavor follows with a relatively light body that makes drinkable. Enjoyable. esjaygee (3904) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2009
On tap at Schmohz Brewing Company. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, spice and very mild fruit. Taste of caramel, roasted malt, alcohol, light fruit and chocolate. Finishes up with a bit of malt bitterness. Not too bad. On a side note, 28th street in Grand Rapids is interesting – two brewpubs and five beer stores entered in on rate beer within a handful of miles of one another.

Draft sample at brewpub. Poured clear dark reddish brown color with full light brown head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Moderate aroma of caramel, nuts and troasted malt. Medium body with sticky texture. Medium bittersweet balanced flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
