Butters (4058) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 27, 2012
Sampled on draft at the second Halloween bash at the brewery. Nutty toasty aroma. Flavor of hazelnut, toffee, caramel, biscuit. Maybe a hint of coffee grounds? And surprisingly earthy bitterness on the tail. Pretty good and drinkable but not amazing.

jcos (1851) - Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Sample at Snallygaster DC event on October 13th, 2012. First beer I had at Snallygaster, on Cask. Nice amount of caramel, hazelnut, didnt really notice the subtle smoke but maybe was just so excited to get my first beer I didnt notice. Really enjoyed this one though, hopefully will be able to get more.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Dark brown pour with a nice head that stuck around. Smell of slight caramel and nuts with a whiff of hops. Taste was smooth and sweet but the finish was quickly dry by the dark malts at the end. Different and enjoyable at first but the finish wasnt great toward the end.

argo0 (14022) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Draft. Large beige head, clear dark copper body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, some hazelnut, faint wood smoke. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some smoke/ash, light nut. Smoke is fairly subtle, more pronounced in the aftertaste. Light-medium body, light acidity.

sonnycheeba (5843) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Cask. Pours tawny brown with average, frothy beige head; good retention and decent lacing. Aroma is heavy black licorice, caramel and toasted malts, floral hops, figs, spice, and pine. Flavor is dominated by the same black licorice notes, leather, toasted malt, and light hops; dry finish. Light body and low carbonation. Overall the whole thing seemed really off, making me think this might have been a bad cask.

pras (597) - Maryland, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Dark brown and clear appearance. Nose is full of deep roasted malt and smoke. Taste is smoky and malty, with a little bit of hop bitterness at the end. Hop bitterness adds a nice depth to this beer. This is really my first nut brown that was memorable. Perhaps my favorite of the brew house rarity series to date. Ben-you did a great job!
