12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a dark brown color. Thereís about a fingers worth of light mocha-shaded head, also. It isnít the most impressive retaining head, but has a nice texture and nice lacing, as well. S: The first whiffs bring a pleasant chocolate-coated peanut character. After it opens up, some nondescript esters and a touch of acidic twang enter. While nothing about the aroma is wowing, it certainly smells pleasing enough. T: The flavor, actually, is quite forward in sweet caramel and toffee, as opposed to the nutty chocolate suggested on the nose. I donít even get much nuttiness in fact (maybe a twinge on the swallow). The finish is a touch roasty/acidic, though not overwhelming. All in all, itís decent, well balanced - and unexciting. M: Medium in body, the slight roasted touch on the back end cleans the palate acceptably. The finish errs on the sweet side, though. Itís drinkable due in large part to its vibrant carbonation. O: Everything about this brew is íniceí. Nothing more, nothing less. Like most brown ales, it feels safe. Normally safe isnít good, but considering some of the duds Iíve had from this brewery in the past (oh hai, Serum!), I guess - for once - Iíll say íbetter safe than sorryí. This oneís on the pile of beers Iíd gladly drink again, as long as I donít have to buy a 6-pack of it.

Fresh bottle. Pours Orange gold with minimal head. Aroma is caramel, nutty. Taste is earthy and nutty, some caramel and brown sugar tones. One of the better "nut ales" I've had. Solid.

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 (1985) - 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. Itís palatable but I wouldnít have more than one.

annunz123 (945) - 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 (5434) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Bottled 12/04/13. Nose faint milk chocolate and light dark malt, thereís 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 (652) - 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.
