Dark brown. Rather malty, roasty, salty with lingering bitterness. Full bodied beer with lots of flavour.

341mL bottle from manuchampions, pours cloudy golden amber with a small head. Aroma of oak, bourbon, vanilla, and a little coffee. Flavour is quite oaky, with vanilla, a bourbon aged quality and caramel malts. Quite good. Oakes (17664) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2000
Has it’s moments, but struggles to be good all the time. Lubiere (13900) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2004
Nice dark brown ale with a nice moka head. Intense malt nose, and even moreintense nutty malt taste with woody, almost porto or vinous tendancies. Alcool warmth enrobes your mouth and creamy mouthfeel. Yummy. Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - DEC 28, 2000

@Kai Goes to China Sendoff-thanks EdN-12oz bottle-pours a light tan head and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, spice/herbal hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, herbal hops. Sammy (12197) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
promise of nutty brown flavour. Liked it in place of a rum or scotch during the meal, though it was just OK to my friends. I would try it next time in place of a late afternoon cocktail to get the appetite going. Alcohol present but not overpowering. hopscotch (11078) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2003
This beer rocks!
Sparkling clear and as coppery as a freshley-minted penny. Not much of a head.
Some chocolate notes and yeasty, doughy characteristics along with geueze in the aroma.
Very malty flavor with rich cream and butter in the flavor. Sherry and alcohol too.
Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Lengthy, bittersweet finish. World Class Brew! DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Thanks to Hogtown Harry for this. Deep brown pour, with a good combination of dark malts, dark fruit, chocoff, and some oaky port in the aroma and flavor. Palate is on the dense side, and nicely layered and smooth. A very nice beer.
