BrettTaylor (546) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
From a bottle. - pours a light copper color, thin head, moderate lacing. Aroma is minimal, hints of burnt toffee. Mouthfeel is thin, tastes burned, some malt Nd a light bitter finish. This is fairly unpleasant to my palate.

Wonderful chocolate & tobacco flavor almost like a well brewed stout with some smokiness. Excellent amber ale and the best one I’ve tried to date.

Amber color with a thick off white head. Aroma is nutty malts. Flavor is a little nutty with notes of toffee. Finishes slightly bitter, and overall fairly drinkable if not anything stellar.

Beer of month club. Pours a clear amber - looks like iced tea. Nutty, malt nose - and that is exactly what the taste is, too. It's ok - nothing memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle in Florida. Smells great, almost like a chocolate porter. Nutty flavor. No bitterness as expected. Fuller flavor than many thin ambers. Above average
