Nutty, with coffee and caramel. Was consumed almost side-by-side with New Glarus Fat Squirrel. Although the Ale Asylum beer is distinctly smoother in palate, the Fat Squirrel has a greater depth of malt character.

Sports a wicked label. Is reddish-brown or cola in color. Smells very nutty and of caramel with piney, citrusy hops. Tastes predominantly of bitter nuts and has a raw, toasted flavor that is refreshing and unique. The same flavor profile shows up in their other beers but here it fits to style with grace.

Great looking rusty-brown color with a small lasting head. Drank slighty warm as taste seemed to pop more. A very nice and drinkable beer.

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice copper color with a small head. Some lacing. Aroma is mostly caramel, with some nut notes. Flavor is very malty, with caramel, nut, and toast notes. Kind of a buttery finish too. Palate is a bit on the thin side. Very drinkable, and I could see it being paired with a meal easily.
