Bottle: Good nose, cream, Malt ball, coffee, almond. Nice orangy/reddish brown color. No head, though ok carbonation. Sweet and bitter, Chocolate, some grapefruit, some metallic. Creamy smooth, a little bitterness on the finish. Tasty, my pick of the four i've had, kinda stouty. Might be a tad out of style with its bitterness.

Pours a dark brown color with a thin light brown head. Good aroma and flavor of nuts, burnt caramel and malt. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and gentle carbonation.

BroSpud (1666) - , Massachusetts, USA - JUL 7, 2013
22oz bottles from the brewery. Pours mahogony brown with an off white head. Sweet and malty but with just enough hop bitterness to even it out. Caramel, butter and nutty flavors. One of my favorites from this brewery.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 11, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2003 Deep ruby-brown hue. Small off white quickly dissipating head. Nutty, fruity, lightly toasted malt aroma. Starts mildly sweet. Faint caramel, toffee accents. Light to medium bodied, subtle nuttiness, finishing well rounded and clean. A bit thin for my tastes, but a very drinkable session brown. Finishes with faint hops off in the distance, nicely balanced...

Aurelius (4028) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2007
Very smooth drinking. Aroma is cold mocha and herbal/grassy. Initial swig is a bit acidic, but then it buffers out. Choco-chalky, lightly sweet, lightly-to-moderate bittering. My guess is American hops. Borderline porter. Thanks to DW.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
Bottle shared by goldtwins. Deep dark brown beer. Aroma is quite sweet and malty with a nice rich nutty component. Lightly fruity over a nice sweet malty base. Soft chewy character on the back. It’s slightly sweet but quite nice nonetheless.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2008
Poureed aclear golden brown color with a small off-white head. Light caramel malt aroma with some earthy notes and a hint of cocoa. The flavor was malty with notes of dark cocoa and cola. The body was on the light side.

hayduke (3317) - Eureka, California, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Another draft pour at the Egremont Inn in Great Barrington, MA this came a hazy brown with a light tan head and light lacing. Nose of caramel malts and nuts, and some light chocolate. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is malty with some hints of fruit. Finish is dry and lightly bitter. Decent brown.

puboflyons (2046) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 28, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. The pour is mahogany brown to darker amber. The nose has a variety of niceties going on. Dark malts, molasses, nutty, molasses, and basically sweet. The body is medium in texture but boy did I enjoy the smooth undertone. The taste is also sweet and nutty at first with a good lingering bitterness at the end. This is one of their standard brews that they bottle and sell locally in Western, Mass (USA).

MaBeer1972 (1262) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 20, 2003
On tap at the brewery. Very dark purplish brown color. Little head fades quickly. Very smooth drinking, nice malty flavor. Somewhat "woody" flavor too. Finishes just as smooth as it starts.
