Pours deep brown, creamy head with lots of caramel on the nose. Creamy, malty taste, walnuts, caramel, and some chocolate. A tad bitter, but all in all, very good!

From the can it pours brown with ruby red highlights and a moderate, short-lasting head. The aroma is vibrant with rich malts, yeast, nuttiness, and maybe even a little cinnamon or hazelnut. The body is about medium. This has a marvelous taste of malts and yeast with the hops played down. Not overly bitter and not astringent in anyway. This is a prime brown ale.

A very fine brown ale with rich nutty tones and a really good sweet maltiness. Faint malted milk notes. Pours medium brown with a frothy head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Mocha micro head with good retention recedes leaving no lacing. Sweet milk chocolate and caramel aromas. Soft with dark caramel and chocolate milk front to back. Dry chocolate finish. Not bad.

Pours a clear red orange brown color with a decent sized bubbly tan head that slowly dissipates to a ring on top. Smells like a brown ale. Lots of caramel and toffee with hints of butterscotch, chocolate, and earth. The flavor is sweet with malts, lots of brown sugar and caramel with a slight bit of spice and earth. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation ans a sweet lightly syrupy mouthfeel. This is a nice brown ale. Solid tasty simple brew.

Pours clear amber with a huge tan head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma is nutty with touches of caramel and chocolate. Flavor is earthy/nutty with dry leaves and earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light...a little thin...with a bold roasty/earthy finish.

It pours a cloudy dark brown with a good one inch foamy lumpy tan head. Foamy lacing is left around the sides of my nonic. The body is too dark for any carbonation to be seen rising. The smell has the toasted oats and walnut up front with an ever so faint sense of hops in the background. The taste has the previously stated elements and combines some nice caramel tones. The palate is about a medium, slightly dry and a bit watery, but a decent watery. Overall, I was a bit skeptical in the beginning when I saw the price, but am glad I bought it to try a style Iím used to and like from a company Iíve never had any of their stuff. Iíd probably have this again, but definitely as a novelty because of the price.

Thanks Spence3208. Red-brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt and a little nutty. Taste is roasted malt, nutty. It has a nice flavorful aftertaste. Great lacing. Got to love a 24 ounce can of tasty beer.
