12 oz bottle. Brown and clear appearance. Nutty, malty aroma with milk chocolate, caramel, toffee and earthy hops. Similar flavor, moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body with a smooth, creamy feel and average carbonation. Not too bad at all, better than I remember.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark ruby with a light tan head which quickly dissipated. Taste is chocolate, tobacco and roasted malts. Nice carbonation. Has more body than the typical brown ale. Relatively low abv allows for many to be enjoyed.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Appearance isn’t a good indicator on the taste of this beer, although it’s a beautiful warm color. Everything from the front taste to the understones is enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle at the Goose Island pub on Pier L, Terminal 3 at Chicago's O'Hare airport.
Clear, but very dark brown with a 3-finger khaki head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of nuts (especially hazelnuts), chocolate, roasted malt, toffee and caramel.
Taste of nuts (again, heavy on the hazelnuts), chocolate, light citrus, roasted malt, toffee and roasted coffee.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
Sweet and malty balanced nicely by the nutty flavors and light citrus hops--exactly what a nut-brown ale should be and so few achieve.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a clear dark amber, brownish beer with a fair amount of off white head on top. Aroma is very nutty, hazelnuts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is like carbonated nutella, which is a good thing in my humble opinion. Some coffee in the middle of the flavor. Very nice and enjoyable.
