UPDATED: JUN 18, 2003 Formerly known as Shifty Dando's. Very, very nutty! This was like drinking a peanut. Very sweet roasted aroma and nice color. Good lacing. The nutty flavor will really knock your socks off.

phaleslu (9789) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 15, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber with a tiny eggshell white head. Aroma of toasted malts, leaves, earth, and a bit of brown sugar. Flavor mostly follows suit, with leafy hops, coffee, toasted malts, tobacco, and earth. Medium-bodied, with medium carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Decent brown ale.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Taster on tap at Casa. Kind of an unnerving name. Clear orange-red brown color. Little off-white head. Loose lace. Light bitter taste. Medium body. Crisp carbonation. Kind of a light bite in the texture, slight metallic. Nutty flavor, light hint of chocolate, earthy bitter hop. OK. Not great. Not much to it.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2011
On tap at Elevator Brewing Co, Columbus OH, March 2010. No ABV stated. Definitely nutty. Some toffee and caramel too. Smooth and easy drinking. Not my favourite style but OK.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Objectively speaking: A brown ale with very strong honeyed influences.
I like: Pleasant hazelnutty undertones, but dominated by very sweet honey.
I dislike: Rather pale for a brown ale, certainly could not catch any roastiness. Sweet example, very sweet even, to the point that it’s rather hard to drink and the very low carbonation does not help, giving it a syrupy texture despite the generalized thinness. Tastes a bit underfermented.
