Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a sturdy dark brown color with a good sustaining finger’s worth of white foamy head. Moderate lace.
The aroma had some bread, caramel/toffee, roasted nuts, light cocoa powder, light toast. Earthy/grassy hops, light wood and ended with what I thought was some nutmeg. Different, but I didn’t mind.
The flavor brought forth the sweet and the roast fairly nice and richly turned it towards the aftertaste. Finish got a little sticky as that spice (if it was the nutmeg) didn’t seem to show any presence.
The feel was about medium bodied with a good sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt appropriate.
Overall, nice brown ale. Was that really nutmeg in this? Not sure. arminjewell (9689) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy reddish brown pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of bread, caramel, toffee, hints of slight nutty notes into a bit of earth, some yeasty notes, spice. Taste is a mix of slight nuts pretty hidden, some caramel, bread, toffee, yeasty spice, some slight herbal notes, finishing sweet, slightly dry. gruberm (329) - - NOV 30, 2013
Great roasted flavors. Handsome dark beer with a light brown head. Wonderful malty flavor.

Slightly sweet caramel and nut nose. Taste is light to moderately sweet, lightly bitter; light toffee, some dark fruit and nuts. Very drinkable. Solid.
