Great double Brown ale. limited head. Nuts, citrus, roasty, earthy. finishes clean. Woody klaing (282) - Florida, USA - DEC 25, 2013
Had with Christmas Pud. Pours opaque brown with a small head. Aroma of roasted walnuts and caramel. Flavor is intense burst of nutty sweetness balanced by a moderate hopping. A lively carbonation. A very pronounced aftertaste of black walnuts. Wonderful.

Poured at a good temperature with a modest, thick, light tan head that soon settled and a tiny bit of lace. Color is a clear cherry brown with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is cocoa, malt, leather, mild tobacco. Flavor’s not as good as nose as there are notes of raisins and molasses which I don’t find appealing in this kind of beer. Body is hurt by those Flavor’s too which clashes and leaves high points. Finish like taste, is longish, and a tad boozy. S_Side_Smitty (773) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Pours a nice deep cola red color with a minimum off white head. Aroma is roasted malts, heavy syrup, coffee and nuts. Taste is a beautiful blend of coffee, nuts, molasses, and toffee transforming to a nice malty finish. Awesome. rederic (3337) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013

S: Nutty, Dark Sweet Malts
T: Sweet Malts, Peanut Shells
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Semi Nutty, Mildly Sweet
Overall, a nice nut brown but the aftertaste tasted like peanut shells...weird. Bacterial (2999) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Brown pour with a nice tan head. Really nice nose - chocolate and almost a sweet bourbon character. Chocolate forward taste with a mellow finish. A nice one to sip. conway (2210) - - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma is nutty and fruity. Taste has notes of figs, berries, chocolate and roasted nutty malt. There's a weird gummy fruit snack undertone throughout. Rich oily palate. This is complex and enjoyable. hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Rated on 01-09-2009 at Fort Wayne, IN Winter Gathering (Bottle courtesy of jsquire) This beer pours a small fizzy tan head with a long retention, brown body with a red tint, no visible carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma is malty, chocolate, roasty, and nutty. The Taste mimics the Aroma. The Palate is oh so smooth and this is a full bodied beer. This beer is very quaffable and the flavors come together very nicely. This beer is worth trying and a beer that not only would I drink again, but also recommend. wisdomsolo (466) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Pours opaque brown with a khaki tan head. The aroma is toffee and malt. The flavor has a tiny burn at it’s finish but has a sweet toffee, caramel flavor. Super smooth on the tongue.
