Bottle at Barrios’ Impromptu Tasting to pop Smitty’s Surly after a couple dudes left. Thanks for the hookup on this beerhawk!. Clear amber brown with wispy offwhite head. Nose is sweet malty and nutty. Flavor is also nutty, and caramel, and sweet potatoes. Some cinamin. Easy for a session beer. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Courtesy GodOfThunder. Pours a clear, dark, chestnut-amber color with a small, foamy, cream colored head. Settling quickly to a wispy film, the froth leaves minimal, spotty lacing behind. The aroma is quite nutty, as advertised, with toasted pecans emerging from a nice malt base of caramel, brown sugar, and maple. A hint of earthy hoppiness is in there as well, lending balance to the nose. Flavors follow suit, caramel and brown sugar coated pecans working nicely, along with a dash of vanilla. There’s a bit of roast in there, which, combined with the mildly earthy hops, balances things out quite well. Medium bodied and smooth, but lightly syrupy. Finishes semi-dry. This is a tasty little session brown.

Sampled from 12-oz bottle that was shared by tytoanderso. Pours a semi-clear reddish amber brew with a lumpy off-white head that has some nice retention. Aroma of caramel malt, roasted nuts with pecan praline, flowery hops, and a hint of citrus zest. Taste is medium to full bodied, flavors of caramel malt, pecan praline, some citrus zest and a hint of honey. Finish is semi-sweet with a light caramel and pecan aftertaste that slowly disappears.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from GodOfThunder. Thanks, J, for haulin’ this down I-10 to bring me my first Mississippi rating! Pours a semi-thick and intense mahogany with auburn highlights. Lively body gives way to a nice, 1-finger high off-white head. Nice roasted nut nose with a hint of sweet pecan and a touch of baked rose. Flavor is a rush of roasted nut with the pecan flavor slowly emerging in the finish. The aforementioned nut never overpowers the beer but it does remain noticeable once the first few taste buds send the message of the flavor to the brain. Finishes with a slightly sweet, roasted pecan and nut medely on the tongue. Nice mouthfeel but a bit thin. Great brown ale that is as advertised, unlike Abita’s version.
