Pour out of 16 oz can, clear dark red pour with thin off white head, aroma brought notes of earth, spice, metallic notes, slight caramel malt note but not much else. Taste was a bit of caramel, toffee, slight spice, nuts with a hint of metal, finishing slightly spicy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drank as part of a sampler on tap. Pours dark brown, with a creamy head, clear. Nose has notes of malt, chocolate, caramel, and coffee. Taste is nutty, with chocolate and caramel coming through. On the palate it is smooth, creamy, maybe a bit oily with a very clean finish. A good representation of a nut brown ale.

Clear brown pour with a fluffy off-white head. Something in the nose of this is a bit off-putting. Grainy, malty nose with a hint of something I don’t like that I can’t put my finger on. Taste is pretty nice. Light caramel and malty. Thin. Watery finish.

[Tap] Part of a sampler at the brewery. Lighter shade of brown. Nice ring of lacing in glass. Sweet breads and caramel aroma. Only faint hints of any nuttiness. Decent malt blend keeps this from becoming too sweet. OK overall.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. Clear orange-amber pour with a sticky head. Thinner palate, mild aroma, mild nutty taste, just so-so.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Bull Falls. Poured clear honeyed amber with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up soured, metallic bready notes and a touch of nutty character.. more metallic as it warmed up.. not good. The flavor was only slightly better.. sweet nutty and caramel notes at the core with some chocolate toward the back.. metallic stuff showed up back there too.. went downhill quickly after the initial taste. Light-medium bodied and oddly sour on the palate.. tacky at other times.. like the Five Star, this seemed off.
