3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin light brown head of fine bubbles. Toasted almonds, toast, smoked malts and a hint of chocolate in the aroma with lots of nutty goodness. Color is a hazy dark mahogany. Moderately dry and chalky mouthfeel with more roasted grains, almonds, smoke and toffee. Light bitterness late swallow. A pretty well balanced and easy drinking brew.

12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Pours a hazy amber/brown color with a small fast fading tan head. Aroma of sweet toffee, a mild nuttiness, roasted malt, and a hint of watered down coffee. Taste is much the same. Clean and crisp with big toffee notes up front and in the finish. Also notes of roasted malt, and mild bitter coffee.

Dark amber with a thin head. The aroma is very sweet with candy sugar, caramel, fruit. The flavor is also sweet with sugar, vanilla, bubblegum. There is a nice bit if bitterness in the finish. Strange but good.

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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
