Smell of sesame oil. Taste a bit as well but with roasty malts. Nice but not exceptional.

Hazy muddy brown with a lot of particulate matter; minimal tan head. Sweet aroma with hints of vanilla bean. Sweet and strongly alcoholic flavor with a bit of smoke. Very complex with different feels all over the mouth, ending with a harsh alcoholic buzz.

Bottle. Brown color, white head. Aroma of passion fruit, hop and brown nutty malt. Taste of fruity hop, hazelnut, malt, some pine and banana-ish yeast. Strange beer, hard to pinpoint. Not bad, but a little top yeasty.

500ml bottle - thanks Kairi!
Very weird aroma, dirty, stodgy, a bit grainy, caramel, husks, but messy and dirty. Anna gets stale coffee. Slightly soapy taste, plenty of caramel and husky grains. Rabbit food. Nice brown, large tight orangy tan persistent head. Palate again a bit stodgy, probably melanoidin malts. Husk brown ale taste, a little bitter. Later there’s some chocolate in the finish too. Kinda passable brown ale, but very messy.

Thanks, John Mays, for the gift --- Hazy brown with a solid 2" beige head, sheet of lace. Taste is strong malt with a heavy shot of chocolate, followed by noticeable hops that move to a finish that has overtones of grass and hay, with perhaps a bit of smoke. Not well-balanced or connected, leaving it short of expectations.

Bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours really dark copper with a yellowish tan head. Smells like a nutty amber. Med body or so. Flavor is nutty, somewhat roasty malt, and notes of chocolate. Apparently a strong nutty brown ale. Not my favorite sort of drink, but the ABV seems helpful, and the nuttiness isn’t very greasy. Certainly drinkable. There seems to be enough hop to render it towards bitter, and it even moves towards dry. Bacon would have been a good touch. :)
