This dark brown-black beer with a brown head is a symphony for the nose. It is of brazil nuts and un-roasted pecans. The body is medium but the flavor layering is complex. The finish is a bit abrupt and beckons you for more.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a small foamy head, low carbonation. Caramel & chocolate malts in the aroma, with a hazelnut note and some dark fruitiness. A bit sweet for my palate, the bitterness doesn’t really come through. Good quality ale, well crafted, just not my thing.

This one poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was nuts, toffee and brown malt. Flavor was similar, a bit sweet for my liking, nuts light roast and coffee and toffee finish. Good but they flavro wears on you.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Beatiful brown with ruby hues and a medium, lasting, bubbly creme head. Aroma is nutty, some slight burnt caramel, very nice. Flavor is very nutty, with some balanced sweetness and slight woody notes, coffeish aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium, ends really dry, easy drinking. Hope I had this stuff at hand!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.65l bottle. This is a blurry deep dark ruby red beer with a small quite quickly fading and side sticking off-white islandy top. The aroma is not what I would call extreme. Yes there are some traces of nuts and butter, but I was actually expecting a bit more. Only soft hints of chocolate and roasted malts. Think I will leave it in the glass for a while to see if it gets a bit more present when it gets some temperature.
OK, it has been in the glass for about half an hour, and the aroma has developed a bit. The roastiness is clearer, and some nice chocolate paper mixed with traces of tobacco has sprung out. It has a really comfortable light almost cloudy mouthfeel this, and the carbonation is about average. Light roasted flavors, it has a nice soft sweetness, traces of cold coffee but I’m missing the nutty flavor I was expecting. I have to admit that it’s extremely light drinkable this. The aftertaste is leaving a nice milk chocolate flavor that’s lasting for quite a while. All in all a really comfortable non-extreme ale from the legendary Alesmith guys. 23.02.2013
