Bottle thanks to kaggie. Poured brown with a khaki head. Aroma was nutty, chocolate, and coffee. Flavor was coffee, slight nutty, some floral note, and some bitterness. Body was medium with high carbonation. douglas88 (9174) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 13, 2011
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear ruby color with a small white head. The aroma is heavy coffee, some smoke. The flavor is a rich coffee infused brew, some spicy peppers- I mean, I swear there are slightly spicy green peppers in this, which I know there are not, so what causes this?-, caramel and some metallic spicy bite in the finish. Very much a strong coffee beer. TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2011
Pours nice & dark brown. No doubt an Imperial brown due to the significant hop background. Cool label design too. A nice cool weather ale. Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Serving: Draft at The Distillery. It pours a nice amber color with a lasting, creamy, tan head. The nose has notes of green peppers? The flavor has some cooked green pepper notes and a lasting bitterness. I can’t help but think this one is off. Not my cup of tea. jlruthven (612) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle pours ruby-brown, with billowy off-white head. Nose is caramel, slight oak, a bit of milk chocolate, vanilla and apple undertones. A slight whiff of alcohol. The burnt caramel malts really come through on the tongue, along with more oak and slightly stronger apple cider notes. I’m a bit concerned about the pronounced alcohol burn on the palate for just an 8% beer. If WH can tweak this, it can be a real winner.

Beautiful color, dark and and clear. Very nutty aroma. Nicely malty flavor, not too rich. Slight harshness in the finish, but nothing off-putting. Ratman197 (14822) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Craftbeerdesign (ThanksGeoff) poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of carmel, light cocoa, light cola and a hint of oak. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, cocoa and oak with a smooth lingering carmel finish. madmitch76 (24789) - , Essex, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2011

GBBF. Cask. Light haze on this amber beer. Reasonable white head. Light dry palate. A little raw tasting pale malt with a trace of toffee. Mild orange hop provides balance but I found this beer to be too dry overall.
Nice strong malty and nutty nose. The flavor is like that of a nut brown but with a much thicker mouthfeel. Good balance. Gachupines (1252) - USA - OCT 6, 2011
Dark brown with a white head, aroma is a little coffee and dough. Flavor is rather sweet and bready at first, heavy malt. Coffee comes in strongly in the finish and is more noticeable as the beer warms up. Quite good, one of my new local favorites.
