Very unique ale. Aroma heavy on the nuttiness, maybe a bit of hazelnut or hickory. Excellent rich reddish-brown pour, although for a supposedly "unfiltered" beer, very clear. Nice easy drinking ale with a hint of nuttiness in the flavor and pleasant, not overpowering, hoppiness at the end.

Bottle pours root beer color with thin, quickly dissipated head. Sarsaparilla and chicory on the nose, finishes soft with low bitterness. Overall, okay, just a little under carbonated.

Tasted on 1/3/12 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear copper brown with a thin white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is lightly nutty with a hint of coffee and a soapy aroma. The flavor is nutty chocolate malt with some green bitterness and a metallic flavor. The body is medium with average carbonation and an average nutty chocolate finish.

Iím a bit bias on this beer. Iím an absolutely huge fan of new glarus. This beer is a bit nutty but a classic smooth new glarus taste iíve come to appreciate. always a treat when i can drink this.

Smells like your standard brown ale. Looks wonderfully brown with a light head on it. Good sweet malt flavor coupled with a slight bitter. Biscuit hits the nose after the swallow. Medium bodied with average carbonation, sits well with me!

12 oz. bottle pours a dark reddish/brown with small beige head that stays as a ring and leaves spots of lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, brown sugar, and hazelnut. Taste is slightly sweet with a slightly nutty finish and almost spicy aftertaste. Body is medium without much carbonation. Mouthfeel is almost creamy. Very satisfying. and it gets better as it warms up a bit.

Really good full bodied dark beer definately nutty, but not overpowering, light aftertaste - best that New Glarus makes IMHO.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. Aromatics of sugary, warm baking spices, and fruits come out first, then turn more malty and roasted by mid sample. It pours a clear, oily orange brown with an off-white, foamy head that retains a medium ring with a light web surface, and leaves behind a snowy lace on the glass. Medium sweet and bitter balance out the taste of this beer. Itís smooth, with an almost creamy carbonation, and a medium light body containing notes of roasted nuts. As it warms the palate picks up more caramel. It finishes dry and spicy with a mildly astringent and toasted bread aftertaste that mellows quickly. After an extended period, the aftertaste comes through as a light spiciness.
