Clear dark brown beer, short lived off white head. Light semi dry palate. Sweetish malt, trace of bubblegum and a whisper of friut. Mild minerals. Semi dry finish. An okay one dimensional malty beer.

Bottle… Deep, dark mahogany ale with a small, fluffy, khaki head. Decent retention. Nice mocha, nutty aroma with a hint of maple syrup. Full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is malty and sweet – very sweet. Chocolate and coffee malts intermingle. Finishes sweet and nutty. Either the hop bill needs a boost or I should have drank this fresh – probably a little of both – to perfect this brew. I like what I’m seeing from these folks. Bottle courtesy of phaleslu!

22oz. Bottle: Got in trade from phaleslu; THANKS Peter! GUSHER! Aroma of malt, brown sugar, nuts, maple syrup, and toasting. Poured copper/brown in color with a large, loose, fizzy, tan head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny and small particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, nuts, slight brown sugar, slight brown sugar, and some cocoa. Medium body. Tingly, then lightly dry texture. Medium sweet, malt, brown sugar, nut, maple finish.

Beerfest. Poured a pale brown color with a tiny tan head. Aroma was buiscuits, roasted malts, and nuts. Flavor was a little wood, faint chocolate, hops and nuts. Medium body, dryer finish. Average at best.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a dark brown with a average tan head. Aroma is kinda nutty and roasty if you use your imagination. Flavor is a small chocolate malt with no hops showing up and very little body. Nothing really great as this is a below par boring brown ale. Not a real good beer and kinda reminds me of a kit home brew brown ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was from a trade via Srykzone. This may have had a loose cap because there was not much carbonation. Pours dark brown with no head. The nose was malty with lots of nut aromas. Medium body with no carbonation. The flavor was cocoa and nuts, The finish is nutty as well. This had a nice flavor but the lack of carbonation made it flat. If I can get new bottle this would be revisited. Hand bottling can cause quality control problems.
