Tasted at 2013 Dayton Alefest- I got it for the name but it was an excellent brown ale. Carmel flavor with an excellent malt flavor on the tongue.

Pours a chestnut brown with little to no head. Aroma of metal, nuttiness, and mocha. Taste is that of roasted hazelnuts, a touch of metal, and just the right body. A great nut brown second to Bell’s BB.

Taster on tap at Casa. Kind of an unnerving name. Clear orange-red brown color. Little off-white head. Loose lace. Light bitter taste. Medium body. Crisp carbonation. Kind of a light bite in the texture, slight metallic. Nutty flavor, light hint of chocolate, earthy bitter hop. OK. Not great. Not much to it.

Pours a medium darker gold, aroma is malty and earthy with some dark fruit. Flavor is jut like it smells very malty backbone with some earthy tones and a nice hop balance and there is some fruity yeast character. Over all it’s pretty tasty , the mrs approves

On tap at restaurant. Good medium brown color and good initial mouthfeel. Very smooth and balanced. Rarely have I had nut taste in my mouth and been so pleased.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber with a tiny eggshell white head. Aroma of toasted malts, leaves, earth, and a bit of brown sugar. Flavor mostly follows suit, with leafy hops, coffee, toasted malts, tobacco, and earth. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Decent brown ale.

Crushed at GABF ’10. Had to sample this strictly because of the name. Meh. Not much going here. A little nutty, kinda roasty. Kinda gritty mouthfeel. Worth trying.
