Draft at the brewery, 11/21/2015. Dark malts and a bit of smoke on the aroma. Tastes similar with a clean, mild finish. Bready notes as well. Light-medium body. Solid.

HuskerTan (1879) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Can. A- Roasty, malty, slightly tart. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Sour, subtle cocoa, malty, dry. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, sour finish. O- Pretty sure this one was slightly infected because the sourness came certainly unexpected. However, it wasnt a bad sour, it actually was fair. Not good, but drinkable.

December 22nd, 2012 - Now heres a beer worth the brewery visit by itself, and GABF judges agree. Dark and black on the body, and ringed with a halo of cream colored foam on top, theres not much special happening just with looks. But a curious nose can immediately recognize that something good is lurking in that glass. Smoked peat, barbecue, and pulled pork blend to form a savory, salivary-inducing aroma. The taste is a bit stranger, somewhat carbonated and a thinner palate that seems at odds with the flavors, but the tastes are all there, borrowed from the aroma, and filled with the same meaty, meal-like tastes that make this stand out from the other Wynkoop tasters in line.

MrSquash (129) - Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2014
Dark malt, slight roast aroma. Very light bodied and smooth across the tongue. Moderate roast taste that turns bitter.

Oakes (16466) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 18, 2014
Medium brown, thin head, toasty aroma, a bit thin, touch of fruit. Ok, maybe a bit thin, crackery, dry finish.
