Bottle (special release). Pours dark brown. Medium sized tan head. Toasty aroma. Flavor of nuts. Some sweetness in the flavor. Nutty mouthfeel. Overall a decent, but not fantastic brown ale. I had the same beer on tap this past summer at the Dark Horse and the draft version was much sweeter. Not sure if this was the same or just related, but regardless I preferred this one. The sweetness was not overwhelming in the bottled version. As I’ve noted many times DH puts out some fantastic beers. This one was decent, but not in the top tier of Dark Horse beers

Tap: black center with a dark, brown & ruby tinted trim, topped with a khaki film that stretches thin across the brew. Aroma is a bit mixed, with hints of chocolate, residual sweetness, milk, yeast, & some nuts. The taste has a firm sweetness as well, slightly residual with a mild, milky/lactose character. Milk chocolate, yeast, woodsy & nutty notes, with a slightly unattenuated finish. Pretty nice beer... Didn’t really know what to expect. Didn’t blow me away, but I wasn’t disappointed, either.

At GTMW. WTF is with this name? Anyway, brown ale with some odd sweetening that I guess is due to dissolved donuts?

On tap at MBGSF 2013. Pours a dark brown with a brown head. Chocolatey dark malt aroma. Sharp, sweet cocoa and dark malt flavor. Really nice start to the Festival.
