COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, bold nut brown ale beautifully balanced with rich dark malts and a complex hop character converging to reveal a simply enchanting elixir.

1FastSTi (3341) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 4, 2006
Pours to a red hued brown body with a very thick and lasting rocky light beige head. The aroma is a nutty, lightly floral, and brown sugar aroma. The flavor is interestingly roasty. Nutty but not overly so. Dry roast, sweet dark and lightly burnt sugars. The palate is roasty, creamy/velvety.

radagast83 (5053) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2006
Bottle. Pretty good, but standard. Malty, and some bitterness. Decent and nothing to call home about

NJBeerman013 (1052) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Decently hopped, but not enough to impress. Fairly malty, but not overly sweet as some nut browns tend to get. The aroma and flavor were caramel sweet with hints of raw sugar and roasted coffee. All in all not a bad example.

eaglefan538 (2911) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 6, 2006
A nice showing from a competent brewer (although, not special). The appearance was dark brown with a thin head that fizzled away with the carbonation. Lacing was decent. The aroma was nutty and caramel-like. Flavor featured a decent hop showing underneath the usual brown ale flavors. Very drinkable. Mouthfeel was moderate to light for the style with significant carbonation.

greenhorn1 (822) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Deep brown with a red tint. A pleasant sweet nutty caramel aroma and taste. Nice carbonation level with a creamy head. Medium to light body, not a bad beer.

jhliesen (753) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Bottle-Poured a dark brown, almost black with a small, nearly creamy head the dissipated. The taste was mostly of malts along with the aroma. Nice, but it just coming up short in comparision to its appearance.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 23, 2006
Bottled. Pours a dark amber/ruby color. Malty roasted aroma. Mildly roasted flavor up front. A hint of sweetness. Quite malty along with some nuttiness.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 21, 2006
Lots of creamy off white foam ride on top of this almost black, garnet tinged dark brown beer. Brown sugar aroma. Heavy sweet caramel/brown sugar flavor. Liquid Sugar Babies. Slightly over carbonated. Too sweet and one dimensional for me, but this is an easy drinking beer than undeveloped palate would probably find quite enjoyable.

Lowe1983 (1361) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2006
Pours a dark brown color with a thick brown head. Aroma is of dark furits, sweet malts, and maybe a little hops, but not much. Flavor is the same, Not really that excited about this brew. Not really sure why people are rating it that high, there are a very large number of beers I would buy over this one.

Tmoney99 (11069) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2006
Bottle. Dark brown pour with an average frothy light brown head that diminished slolwy. Light sweet roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Good sweet burnt malt flavor with a small bitter finish of average duration.
