Bottled, from Bozeman, MT. Clear nut brown, brief head. Syrupy nose with a bit of roastiness. Light-medium bodied with sloppy mouthfeel. Syrupy with notes of cranberies. Low bitterness. An unconvincing brown ale. Ferris (16296) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
Bottle - Rich coffee aroma with the slightest bit of alcohol. Rich opaque brown with a nice thin but persistent brown head. Roasted coffee, malts, tinge of bitterness and alcohol on the finish. The ’nut’ is lost on me but it is a nice dark beer, a little strong and more like a porter bhensonb (15617) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 28, 2014

Sample from a 22 oz. bottle shared by decaturstevo at the Cincy gathering. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a small diminishing beige head. The aroma is sweet malts, nuts and brown sugar. The flavor has the same sweet malt, light nuts, and a hint of fruit. Definetly thin and watery. Thanks Steve for sharing.
