savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAY 21, 2012
22 oz bottle. Clear amber with a small thick beige head. Aroma of caramel, bread dough and herbal hops. Flavor is bready/toasty malt, medium hop bitterness and some sweet caramel. Medium body with average carbonation and a smooth mouth feel. Very good beer for the style.

Dorwart (2371) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Good sized light tan head of dense bubbles. Light chocolate malts, roasted grains, crusty biscuits and some smoke. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Hoppy flavor. Much more than expected. More roasted grains and toast. Flavor is a bit weak but is backed up by a decent herbal bitterness. Finishes sharp, dry and bitter with a lingering tingling sensation on the tongue.

Pours a dark brown with orange tint. Pretty in the glass. Nice aroma of grain and slight sawdust. very nice mixture of sweetness, slight hoppiness and grain. good carbonation too. I was surprised by how much I liked this.

jbruner (2296) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Pours a clear golden brown from the bottle with no real head or lacing, but a bit of bubbly carbonation. Aroma of basic malt, grain and a hint of caramel. Taste is a little better with a bittersweet finish. Meh.

SDalkoholic (2145) - Linda Vista, California, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle from Sprout’s: Poured a dark tea brown color topped with a thick layer of frothy head. Aroma is sweet with caramel and toffee like malts but also catch a whiff of cereal as well. The drink comes across nicely balanced with firm backing of sweet syrupy malts that suggest caramel and burnt sugar while also delivering a gentle usage of hops. Finish leaves behind a taste of green tea.

Lukaduke (2144) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Pours an amber color with a one finger head that laces out quickly... Aromas are very subtle...malty caramel a touch of watered down scotch and a hint of nuttiness. On the palate is has a similar mouthfeel to a small beer...a balanced easy drinker with a malty round body that brightens up with a hit of noble hop bitterness in the finish. Not bad...a couple weeks past its expiration.

StefanSD (2118) - Lakeside, California, USA - MAY 12, 2012
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Pours a copper color with a medium off-white head that has fair retention and shows some minor lacing. The aroma is soft with sweet malts, pecans and a bit o’ brown sugar. The taste is similar to the nose with earthy bitter nuts, semi-sweet grains, mild spices and a brown sugar character(but without any real sweetness). The palate is on the lighter side, but seems appropriate for this beer and the carbonation is soft. The finish is medium in duration, very dry, and leaves an aftertaste of bitter walnuts. Overall: Very interesting, and very good, me like.
