Bright cinnamon body with dense tan head. Earthy aroma, nutty and malty. Taste is toasted almonds, spice, vanilla and brown sugar. Creamy feel with smooth finish and lingering bitterness.

Can. A clear, dark amber to brown body forms under a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is lightly wort-like, with toffee, nuts, some dark chocolate and a faint touch of coffee grit. It’s roasted and full-bodied, semi-dry and with a pleasant carbonation level. Toffee, nuts, some chocolate and coffee too, lasting for a good while..A bit boring this one I think, but it drinks easily and is flawless. 150606

Draft at toronado. Pours a clear but very dark brown. Loose creamy tan head. Hugely nitrogenous nose, deep dirty socks aromas that never go away. Slippery medium body with soft carb. Bread and laundry on the mid palate. Sticky, soggy finish.

jgb9348 (5062) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2015
Crisp dark brown coloured body with an almost perfect, three centimetre tall tan head that shows nicely. Aroma of nuts, earth, caramel, brown sugar and a touch of light funky yeast - nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty flavour with some walnuts and cashews noticeable and an almost fruity finish with a pleasant sweetness. Aftertaste shows a little depth from the caramel and a lot of nuts with only a touch of yeastiness and funk at the tail end. Overall, a decent nut brown and perhaps one of the better and most complex ones i’ve had in a while, but that still unfortunately doesn’t make this a beer worth searching out to find. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 15-March-2015.

Can. The color is a thin, clear reddish brown with off white head and lace. The aroma is true to the style, malty, nutty. The flavor is thin malty, brown sugar, nuts. The finish has a slight resin bittering.

I missed the "lager" part on the can and thought I was getting a brown ale. Horribly disappointing there. This is a mild taste of German yeast and powdered chocolate with a really bad aftertaste. Not at all good.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Canned. Nose nutty, heavily malty with light spice and earth, deep dark toffee and faint hops. Really earthy and deserving of the name. Pours a beautiful mahogany gradient down to chestnut, very slow carbonation with a dense and rocky beige head. Taste semi-sweet but seems dry at first, touch of tartness overshadowing light bitterness, but above-average maltiness with a hint of nuts and fruit that melts into the background. Clean medium-full body with just a touch of alcohol.
