Draft at Hardtimes Cafe in Frederick, MD. Served in a pint glass, medium brown color with white head. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, brown sugar and slight nuttiness. Taste adds caramel and some cocoa. Light body, moderate carbonation, sticky with a slightly sweet finish. Sweet tasty nutty beer.

On tap @ DuClaw. Smelled of toffee and toast. Standard brown appearance. Smooth clean watery mouthfeel. Going down I do get notes of nuts and toffee. Very smooth, very nutty and very tasty. Excellent.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Pint on tap. Brownish beer, clear, no lacing. Pretty malty, as advertised, toasty too, sweet but not cloying. I dont taste caramel, but i get the almond. Tasty, a fun beer.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle. Just about what youd expect from a cleanly and competently made toffee beer. Rich red color, shine, standard head. Sweet sugary aroma and brown sugar and toffee flavors. Gotta be in a mood for something like this myself, but its decent. (#5282, 10/8/2013)

MadRobin (1692) - Silver Spring, USA - SEP 29, 2013
On tap 5 oz. sample at DuClaw in Bowie, MD. Clear, mahogany with a pale khaki head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, toffee and nuts. Taste of toffee, brown sugar, caramel, mild dark fruit and a barely perceptible nuttiness. Medium/full body and medium/low carbonization. A pleasant sweet brown beer, which is virtually all malt. It starts off strong with caramel and toffee, but lacks complexity and ultimately fades as it drowns itself out. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at DuClaw Bel Air.

Taste: Dry nutty intro into a moderately sweet caramel, toffee, and cocoa mid-taste with a dry roasted peanut finish.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.
Overall: Really good brown ale, complex and drinkable. Id like this in bottles.
