Dank aroma of malt, earth, chocolate and the alcohol is effervescent. Thick and malty texture. Sticky palate. Taste is slightly metallic and sweet...weird combination. Finishes malty again with cocoa and oak. It is strong.

Bebum (895) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Brown, SRM 23, quickly dissipating head, leaving no lace. Medium body, slight in flavor, alcoholic but smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation, avg length. Sweet taste, mostly because of low bitterness, Yeasty, particularly in the finish, malty, nutty, evoking pecan and walnut, guaraná Antarctica . Too alcoholic to be a session drink, too unexciting to be anything else. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Appearance is thick and murky, full of sediment. Nose is promising, nutty and sweet. However, taste is a let down. Caramel, maple, walnuts, lots of toffee and plum. The taste stays for a second after you swallow and then disappears pretty completely. Mediocre

kathouse (1816) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 10, 2014
A malty aroma brown ale that pours dark and attractive. Toasted aromas do not show any hop traits. Medium sticky body. Raisins and plums with toffee and more toast. Finish lasts.

AirForceHops (6963) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 11, 2014
12 bottle. Brighter ruby color, light retention in a shaker glass. Aroma is earthy English malts and roasted grain. Real earthy with underlying sweetness.

Flavor is again mostly English malts with a touch of molasses and toffee. Pretty simple and straight forward. The texture is semi-dry with a thinner medium side in body. Malt dominates with very little, if any bitterness. Dont know how different the original draft version at "The Shed " really was but this does hide the ABV real nice and drinks rather easy. Dont go out of your way to try it but it is drinkable.
