From the bottle poured a brown brew with a light brown head. Light aromas of nutty malt. Nutty and malty flavors. Not wonderful, but I didnít pour it out.

Originally reviewed: 12/20/08. Pours a dark tawny brown with a decent head. No retention or lacing whatsoever. Smells of toffee, nuts, sweet smelling. Yikes! This is one of the sweetest beers Iíve ever had. It gets worse as I drink. Taste of brown sugar, syrup, toffee, pecans. This is like a pecan pie in a bottle. I love the pie, but this brew is not good. This is a sugary, syrupy mess. Not a winter warmer at all. Great dessert brew, if youíre into that sort of thing. Personally, I wouldnít get this again.

The whole thing just kind of comes apart. Watery on the palate. Evident artificial flavoring. Very macro-esce, but better than the usual swill I suppose.

This nut brown pours a soft clear brown with a weak head. It has a fairly thin mouthfeel. Simple construction with a malty side and a decent nutty flavor- like a toasted pecan. 6.5-j 6.5-B

Derek881 (1036) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2012 Poured from a regular bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a slightly-cloudy medium brown color with a slight dark amber hue, with a good-sized creamy tan head with modest retention but ample cling. The aroma featured notes of caramel and maple malt, with compliments of cereal and grainy hops. Its taste was somewhat sweet with a bit of caramel and some bitter grainyness, but not smoothly put together. The body was fairly light in carbonation and fizz, mostly dry and on the thin side, with little mouthfeel.

Pours a rich clear brown with an almost nonexistent head. The aroma is strong hazelnut with notes of malt and maple. The body is thin and the taste is much like the aroma. I fine this beer to be very satisfying. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
