Brown Coloring with White Ring. Honey Sweet Malt Aroma. Sweet Malt on the Tongue as Well...Honey Notes...Very Sweet Leaning Towards a Medium Dry Ending. Interesting Brown. badgerben (5281) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - OCT 21, 2005
Dark red color with no head. Sweet malt aroma with an odd presense of raw alcohol. The taste is characterized by being dry, with malt and nuts being foremost among them. That pure alcohol shows up again on the finish. It’s not necessarily bad, but a bit strange for the style. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2005
Brown with amber highlights and a cream-colored and holding head. Honey aromas with a floral background and occasional pumpernickel. Flavor was very much bitter, like an unsweetened iced tea, with rye in the finish like Onion’s Roggen Rye. Soft carbonation leads to a spritzy finish.

Thick and brown, bready, a little bitter. Good taste, but maybe a bit to bitter for my tastes. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Had this on draught in Lake Barrington, Illinois. Clear and dark brown in color, bitter chocolate, coffee and apricots in the nose and finish. A great brown!

Deep safire brown in color with a creamy tan head. Caramel cola aroma, with some hazelnut coffee syrup sweetener, amaretto and chestnuts. Thin palate hit and tingly at the same time. Dry, scratchy tree bark, pecan casings and cola syrup for dominant flavoring elements. Some black licorice creeps up on the back end. Original interpretation, just not very enjoyable.

UPDATED: JUL 4, 2005 With my hearing, it took the waiter three spellings and a confirmation from my girlfriend that the beer is B-E-V-O. The server didn’t know what it meant except that it was replacing the maibock on tap. (?) Nice light brown color with a rocky tan head. Good lacing. The aroma is a nutty, caramel malt with a heap of chocolate. Smooth in the mouth, it has a rich nutty malt flavor surrounded by milk chocolate. A light earthy hop bitterness comes through only in the oddly dry finish. This is a very good ale, whatever "bevo" means.
