Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

A singularly distinctive beer that represents our finest brewing efforts, Walker’s Reserve is a elegant dark ale featuring robust flavors of toffee, caramel and bittersweet chocolate. This brew employs five specialty malts, as well as oat and barley flakes, for added complexity and flavor.

July 26th 2011 (from notes)

A - super deep brown, one finger very tan head and some okay lacing

S - lots of vanilla and chocolate, nice oak, nutty, very sweet, toasted grains and malts

T - nice coffee, milk chocolate, toffee, nutty, vanilla, slightly hoppy, nice Toastiness, great malt and some wood/earth

M - fluffy, well balanced, nice complexity, low acidity, medium long finish and medium dry

D - no matter light or dark big or balanced, this beer is for you.

Final thought - at less than 6% ABV this beer isn't for getting tossed. But at only $4 this is a great beer
