12oz bottle in an English pint. Pours brown with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of light caramel, nuts, and brown sugar with a little hops to balance it out. Flavor about the same. Average texture. The beer is pretty good, but all of the flavors are a little light.

dmac (3919) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 13, 2010
12 oz bottle from a coworker. Poured a deep chestnut brown with a smaller fizzy off white head. Aroma of nutts, toasted brown bread, a hint of molasses and vegtable soup. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly chalky finish. Nutty flavor with lots of brown bread and cereal plus a hint of chocolate. Pretty decent for a boring style.
