Weak, nutty aroma with a little metallic funk. Flavor is better, nutty caramel and lightly bitter, slightly smoky finish. OK, but nothing special, a decent cookout/tailgate option for non-beer-nerds.

Bottlw at home in CT - thanks to brother Charlie. Pours clearish brown with a foamy tan head. Very basic brown bread nose with suggestions of berry fruits. Light to medium sweet flavor with some cigarette butts, more brown bread, toasted leaves. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with toasted brown bread, hints of burnt caramel, light earth and leaves. Actually a decent, tasty brown.

12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown color with a minimal light tan head. Light coffee and chocolate aroma, with a dash of floral hops. Sweet caramel and dark fruit malt flavors dominate this one. A bit sugary with a good dry finish. Sweetness seems to become more pronounced as it warms. Soft and smooth medium body.

Recommended by a bartender at Murphy’s, which I gladly took. $4.50 for the half-pint. Pours a dark blood iron rust with a trim off-white head barely a finger in length. Smells and tastes of pickled pears, earth, wheat grain, mashed corn, wine and coffee dregs, and noble hops. Relaxing.
