Had a bottle of this at my future brother in law’s house. Don’t know how long it’s been sitting there since I see it’s now retired...

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at The Cove NJ. Pours a deep reddish brown color with a decent sized head. Aroma of strong caramel malts and toffee, with a touch of chocolate. Taste of caramel upfront with a slight bitterness in the finish. Chocolate malt, toffee, caramel, and roasted nuts come through as it warms.

I thought that this beer was pretty tasty. Nice hazelnut flavor with a tiny hop bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear medium amber color with a slight fluffy head. Scent is malty with some hints of hazelnut. Has a bold roasted nut flavor that really hints the taste buds. Overall is very smooth and has a very decent volume to it. Probably one of the more flavorful Leinenkugel’s beers available but compared to other nut brown ale beers, this one is slightly better than average.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty average. Light brown to copper, sweetish, with a slight hazelnut (I think) or maybe maple extract taste. No noticeable hops or spice. Quaffable, but not worth seeking out.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle: Pours a dark chestnut brown with a decent white head. No CO2 release or lacing. Aroma is bad, smells like a sour American lager. Taste is pretty bad too. Not much flavor for a nut brown, weak, thin, bland. Poor offering overall.
