12 oz. bottle shared by dudeabide- thanks, Nate! Pours a tea amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted and caramel malts, mixed nuts, and dried leaves. The flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smooth, earthy, sweet mouthfeel. Drinks more like a 5.5% brown ale than a 7.4% strong ale. Either way, not a lot to it.

Bottle to snifter (shared by dudeabide). Looks solid; a translucent brown with thin off-white lacing. Smells semi-sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

12 oz bottle shared by dudeabide. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have malts, earth, mild nutty character, caramel, actually pretty drinkable, my expectations were exceeded.

Poured from bottle into shaker. Pours almost bottle brown with a haze. Thin off white head with some laceing. Aroma is malt with a nutty flavor. Taste is malt, nut and plum. Light mouth feel. Was a bit light in taste for me but I think it gets stronger in the finish. I picked up a nutty taste turning coffee in the end. Not bad but wouldn’t be my a return pick up for me unless I used it as a better gereral brew for friends.

Chalsk (1017) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a deep amber brown with white foam head. Aroma of dark fruit, candi sugar, caramel, earthiness, and dough. Sweet citrus caramel taste with leathery caramel malt hints on the finish. A creamy, medium body, rugged brown ale that serves its purpose.

PhatB420 (601) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 31, 2013
12oz into a harpoon leviathan glass as my first brew on NYE 2013. Pour is straigh forward with a fast foaming head that dissapears. Color is dark brown and amber rust. Aroma is sweet malts, cherry, plum, rasin, and musty brown ale. Taste is quite reminiscant of a barely wine, dark musty rasin and grape like flavors, mixed berry, oh the head is gone, sweet malt based presense is rampant, strong abv is noticeable but not deterring. Aftertaste is sweet, solid and strong with malts and fruits, mostly cherry. This one grows on you, not bad for the Shed.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a fair amount of head. Nice malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.
