8/22/12. On tap at the Seven Bridges brewpub. Clear brown pour with a small tan head. Nice nutty aroma with some tannic bitterness and a touch of chocolate. Nutty flavor with a touch of chocolate. Definitely one of their least offensive offerings.

Pours a deep but clear brown. Aroma of smoked malt. Malt forward with smokey notes followed by a sharp bite in the end. Crisp for a brown ale. Also not too dark.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Clear red brown color with minimal white lacing. There is a light candied malt aroma. Palate falls a little thin but overall a nice drinking brown. An award from 14 years ago might be a little out-dated.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2011
Draught at the Hamilton Place location. Pours a burnt sienna brown with small khaki head. The aroma is toasty with a slight hint of caramel, even a touch of cocoa, a slight earthy note, slight dried cranberry, and a bit of toffee. The flavor is toast, a hint of charred wood, a hint of toffee. Not as sweet as the aroma would have me believe. There are some earthy notes and some odd fruity hoppiness that comes across kinda like strawberry. Ok session beer.

bubbleflubber (2069) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 11, 2011
On draught at brewery (Charlotte location). It pours mahogany, with both a light head and suds lacing. The nose has some molasses, malt and tobacco notes. Flavors are interesting, of chocolate malt and light cloves. The finish is a slightly nut-bitter chocolate bark... clean and neat. The mouthfeel is light with a medium body and refreshing palate. Decently done.
