Pours a dark, coppery-brown, with small head. Strong aroma of nuts and malt. Flavor is very nutty--the hazelnuts are especially apparent. There’s a smooth, sweet underlying maltiness and a rather bitter finish. Quite good.

DrSilverworm (6571) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Pours a half hazy brown red color, with a good finger-thick khaki head. Fades to a thin amount, and leaves good ridges of lace. Nutty, cocoa, chocolate, and coffee notes up front. Medium plus body. Smooth, creamy texture, good full mouthfeel. Lighter, creamy carbonation. Light slick finish. Kind of a chewy texture, pretty nice. Moderate sweet taste, lighter bitterness. Bottle says this brewed with cinnamon and nutmeg but I get a lot less of that than expected, it’s very subtle... What’s big in the flavor is not mentioned on the bottle, the nice big nuttiness. Some cinnamon, butterscotch comes out later. Great brown ale. A lot better than expected.

Bottle at home thanks to Brent. Pours dark brown with a thin creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate slight roast and caramel. Medium bodied. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

6 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom as part of a six-beer flight. Consumed on 5-30-14. Pours a light to medium brown with an orange hue and beige head. Produces good lacing. Fall spices dominate the aroma. Brazil nut and pumpkin scents. Fresh smell. The aroma is not at all what I expected. Flavors of chocolate, hazelnut, and pumpkin spice. Also mocha (but more chocolate than coffee) and pumpernickel bread. Plummy finish. More aromatic, flavorful, and complex than I expected or is typical for the style. Light to medium body. Aqueous and lively in the palate. Overall, not bad at all, and something different for what is typically a boring style.

Tap, brown with a beige head, sweet taste of malt, caramel, and hints of chocolate and nuts, nice, easy drinking beer.

Bottle. Definitely nutty all round in nose and flavor. Almost no head and pours a dark amber with one red tints. Caramel and roasted hazelnuts. Not heavy on the palate.

Pours a mahogany brown with a thin tan head. Nose is malt and honey. Nice and creamy on the palate. The taste is primarily of sweet malt, with some caramel and a hint of cinnamon. Sweet, no bitterness, akin to a dopplebock. A well done and enjoyable beer. Pairs well with smoked turkey sandwiches and chips.
