Tap - good size foamy head, dark brown color, sweet malty aroma and flavor, mild nutty coffee flavor - nothing special
Very well done brown ale from trailhead. I don’t know why everyone is hating on it.

On draught at the brewery as part of a sampler. Deep copper with a tan head that lingers. A lot of the beers in the sampler have a great appearance and head retention/patterning. This beer was rich and roasty and the highlight of the staples from this brewery. voyageurmike (520) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Watery, better than their stout at least. Poured at the brewpub in a pint glass. Dark reddish brown with moderate tan head. Abrupt bitter finish. Bartender said this was his favorite Trailhead offering, and it is ok when paired with food. Not a beer I would seek out otherwise. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2014

On tap at Trailhead Brewing Co. Pours a fairly dark brown. Thin tan head. Aroma is slight roast and a good bit is caramel. Flavor is caramel and some chocolate. Decent beer.

Draft sampler pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of malts and nutty. Taste is malts, coffee and a hint of nuttiness .

Very dark brown. Nice tan head. Surprisingly creamy. Slight roasting. I was expected at least a hint of nut. Pretty bland, but ok Cerealkiller (3) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 16, 2012 does not count
This beer has a sort of coffee note to it with a nice after taste. It goes really well with their sausage platter. phaleslu (10895) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Draft at the brewpub in a sampler. Pours a dark, clear cola brown color with a small tan head that leaves some trailing lace. Notes of caramel, brown sugar, toasted nuts, syrup, and mild coffee. Really sweet for a brown ale. Light-medium bodied, with a syrupy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Just too sweet for me.
