Draft pint at the brewery; Very dark, dark brown with just a thin stratus of foam. Giant malt-ball aroma and it carries forward to the flavor ... sweet yet heavy ... malt, vinegar ... where’s the fish and chips? (#2822, 4/27/2007)

Draft at the Shockoe Craft Beer Festival in Richmond, 8/26/06: Rich chocolate amber color; metallic nuttiness and a rich malt footing. Nice little bite in the end. Decent brown ale.

Aroma’s of Carmel and raisins. Very thin white, cream-colored head. A little fruity for a nut brown, with the nuttiness at the finish. Not bad overall, but wouldn’t go out of my way to find

Body is a ruby brown, no head. Aroma is fruity for a brown, I am catching plums, fruit punch, light caramel. Taste is a lot of raisens up front followed by light caramel, and that is about it. Nice label though.

12oz bottle acquired in trade (I can’t find who this came from, if it was you, let me know!). Poured a deeper brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, light caramel, and some nuts. I was also getting an earthiness to it. Tastes of caramel, chocolate, toasted malts, and nuts. Thinner body.

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is copper and malt; very weak and not very pleasant. Flavor is nuts, caramel, bitter and not very tastey. This is the worst beer that I’ve had by Edenton.

Draft at the Durham World Beer Festival. Clear amber with a creamy off white head. Certainly nutty nose and flavor, something is off here. Like bad walnuts. Eh.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark reddish-copper brown body with an ecru-colored body. Putrid, sour aroma - maybe some nuts? Smells yeasty. The flavor is very nutty, and sweet, with somewhat caramel flavors. Sticky, bitter, buttery finish that’s not too pleasant.

Bottle from ross - deep amber pour with large but short-lived head - almost tart, earthy aroma, with herbs and a touch of nutmeg - thin-bodied and thin-flavored - hints of cherries, caramel and milk chocolate, all of which taste artificial - almost sour finish - really not that enjoyable.
