Good body. Carmel color. Good finish. Flavor isn’t as deep as it could be. Slightly bladder New Castle.

Malty aroma with a hint of chocolate. Caramel sweetness in the malty base with a bit of cocoa and earthiness. Long, smooth finish. Nice for the style.

Jesterdeal (1814) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 6, 2014
From the bottle. Aroma is toffee, like a Werthers, and a bit of almond. Pours bright brown with a small yellow lace. Taste is sweet toffee and then stale cardboard brown ale. The brew gets sweeter with a fake toffee syrup taste as it warms. It’s palatable but I wouldn’t have more than one.

annunz123 (853) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Caramel, molasses, and a little metallic tinniness in the aroma. Flavor is on the sweet side, with caramel, raisins, and dark fruit. Some roast coffee bitterness in the finish. Fine cold-weather beer.

EithCubes (4749) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Bottled 12/04/13. Nose faint milk chocolate and light dark malt, there’s some almond milk and mildly acrid amber ale, lights hops. Pours is a deep, light-sucking brown-amber with a rather ephemeral beige head. Light body hovers around watery, has some malt though, lightly sweet with no real bitterness, but light citric and prickling hops and mild chocolate way in the background. Faint nuts, as well -- this is a watered down trail mix brown, but a clean and very drinkable one. Touch of stale urine/funk and alcohol seemingly over 5% (though not extreme) are enough to bring it down a notch.

SamP01 (546) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a medium cloudy brown with no head. Aroma and Taste is sweet caramel with a mildly toasted toffee and nutty flavor and mild bitterness. A medium body with good carbonation on the palate. Finishes with toasted caramel malt, toffee with some nutty undertones and mild bitterness. Overall a good drinking brew, tasty and easy going down.

Drank from bottle. Aroma is coffee and nuts. Taste is pecans, small chocolate flavor, and some caramel. Semi sweet, medium bodied, low/medium carbonation. Aftertaste is mellow and not overpowering. Easy drinking good beer
