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 (1051) - 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 (615) - 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.

jgb9348 (4652) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Rich deep hazy brown and copper coloured body with a thick, two centimetre tall deep tan and light brown head. Aroma of rich caramel, alcohol, hazlenuts, pecans, earth, peat and quite a bit of fruit sweetness. Medium to Full-bodied; Rich malty flavour with a good caramel profile, some nuts and earth and a hint of herbal spices with some allspice and nutmeg thrown in. Aftertaste shows some rich pit fruit sweetness and an alcohol vibe, but not in an overwhelming way - just noticeable. Overall,a solid beer that was better that I was expecting, and not a bad drink for a chilly evening. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased at Whole Foods (Foggy Bottom) in Washington, DC on 25-October-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home here in Washington on 16-December-2013.

Mep3222 (413) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2013
Smells of malt, some roasted with a bit of a coffee smell in there as well. Taste is malty with a bitter middle and a sweet finish. Has a bit of a sloppy palate, reminiscent of a home brew made with malt extract. Light carbonation. Pretty full flavored. Overall a good beer. Wouldn't buy for home but would have after a day of snowboarding. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
