Bottle: Deep brown with auburn hues. Nose is lightly roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is consistent with the aroma albeit amplified. Nice amount of chocolate that balances out the roasted malts. Light hint of yeast. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with very small off-brown head. Toasted nutty nose, with hints of sweetness. Flavor is rather nutty with a good amount of sweet malt to balance it out. A stand up but not stand out brown ale. I’d order a pint of this just about any time.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
True to it’s name it poured a deep dark brown but it came with little to no head. Who’s pouring these beers anyway? What it lacked in appearence it made up for in spades with taste. Full flavor of almonds, walnuts and molassis. Very malty with a full and hearty finish. Too bad it’s only been rated 4 times and that I have to fly 1500 miles to get some!

Draft. This is an excellent beer. Pours deep brown with minimal head. Aroma and body are fairly good. Taste is outstanding. A toasted nut flavor with hints of sweet molasses are found in this marvelous brew. Hops are balanced very nicely and do not overwhelm. I wish I could get this at home.
