My favorite. Good head, you can taste the chocolate hops. More for the bolder beer lovers Darkover (1538) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2001

This was a nice quality beer. Not quite my style, but obviously a good beer. VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 2, 2001
Excellent interpretation of the style. Nice toasted chocolate malt flavor with a nice bitter twang. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2000
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2003 On the pour a luminous deep ruby color, the head is mediocre in size, frothy in texture and a light tan color, the lace forms a very thin sheet. Nose is dominated by the malt, caramel sweet, pleasant as noses go, start is lightly sweet, top is skeletal in feel. Finish is temperate in its carbonation, the hops obliging in their spicy presence with the aftertaste desert dry, a weak and watery, so it won’t garner much favor from me.
