This truly lives up to its name. A nectar of the gods right here folks. Sweet all the way to the last drop.

Dark brown color. Medium head. Aroma is nutty and malty. A medium bodied brown ale. This is a very nice nut brown ale. Nutty and malty, smooth and sweet. Mellow and very drinkable. This is a beer that is complex enough for the experienced beer drinker, yet simple enough to wean someone off macro-swill. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty sweet. Etched/Painted beer bottle

Malty aroma, beautiful crystal brown color. Nice malty sweet flavor, just not enough flavor.

UnionMade (621) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 17, 2003
WOW. Far and away the best brown ale I've had ever. Amazing subtle hazelnut flavor that melds seamlessly with the roasty brown ale flavor. Great mouthfeel. Smooth as hell. A little bit too bitter for my idea of a brown ale, but very smooth, rich and tasty. I'll probably get this regularly.

UPDATED: SEP 19, 2012 Aroma of sweet chocolate and caramel, nice sweet first taste, right amount of carbonation. Intense aftertaste is very nutty, with slight bitterness. Drank this tonight with my roommate PrinceofNessus. rerate: too sweet, oily AND watery and quite simple.

Nice taste though a bit bitter. The head is thin and quickly disappears.

UPDATED: FEB 18, 2006 The best brown I’ve had. Very sweet aftertaste. It puts other brown ales to shame.

Ernest (6031) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 7, 2010 Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, nuts, toasted bread), lightly hoppy (flowers, herbs), moderately yeasty (mold, cheese). Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. This sample had a strong and unpleasant moldy/cheesy note that all but ruined the aroma. Rancid nuts maybe? Rather dirty aftertaste too.

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2003 This is so good I'm having trouble rating it because I'm gulping it down so quickly! Pours out of the 22 oz bottle a very dark brown color with a great ruby red tinge. Head is a little small and dissipates quickly. Aroma has distinct brown sugar tones and a touch of hazelnut, and maybe a maple syrupy note in there too. Flavor is smooth all the way through. A bit of maltyness, no bitterness at all. Definitely sweet flavor, but just the right amount (not overly sweet or syrupy). Overall very delicious. I like brown ales, and this is the piece de resistance.
