3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear deep amber light brown mahogany color with a thin light brown head. Aroma is a mix of toasted malts, nutty, with a hint of toffee and caramel. Nutty caramel sweetness in the flavor. Light in body for a brown with a lingering caramel sweetness. Not too shabby.

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.

Pint on tap. Brownish beer, clear, no lacing. Pretty malty, as advertised, toasty too, sweet but not cloying. I don’t taste caramel, but i get the almond. Tasty, a fun beer.

Bottle. Just about what you’d 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 it’s decent. (#5282, 10/8/2013)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

On tap at DuClaw Bel Air.
Appearance: Clear mahogany body with a creamy light tan head.
Aroma: Nutty with toffee, cocoa, and caramel. Leans a bit sweet.
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. I’d like this in bottles.
