Nut brown. Mild, nutty with hint of acidity. Not the most flavourful of ales.

Light malty aroma, perhaps a hint of chocolate. It’s that malt aroma you found in chocolate malts! Deep reddish brown color with a monster persisting head. This may be unpasteurized. Thin mouthfeel. Starts with malt, goes to a very roasty toasty malt. Not a whole heck of a lot of hop here, but it’s tasty. Ratman197 (14842) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2007
On tap @ Hopyard Pleasenton poured a clear reddish brown with a small lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, cocoa, light fruitiness and a hint of nuts. Palate was light bodied crisp and slightly tart. Flavors of toffee, cocoa, nuts and light metallic with a crisp finish. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2004

Pours pitch black with an attractive tan head and a treacle aroma. There is a nutty roasted malt flavor that is a bit thin with burnt toast finish. bb (9268) - Alamo, California, USA - JUL 19, 2005
