Bottle. Pours murky dark brown with tan/off white head. Nose/taste of almond and chestnut extracts, raisins, dark fruits, honey, sweet malt and caramel. Initially sweet dark fruits on the palate morph into a lightly roasted nut character in the finish. Some honey booze in back end. Medium body. brokensail (16609) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 28, 2013
Dark brown pour with a khaki head. Sweet sugar prune juice on the nose. Cardboard, nuts, molasses, and grass. Mild grass, too. Meh. The flavor is disappointing as well.

Bottle shared by b3shine. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Moderate complex toasted malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a dry smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted bittersweet flavor with a solid bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid complex beer. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 24, 2013

750 bottle-pours mahogany and a cascading tight retaining tan head that laces. Aroma is roasty/cocoa-medium/dark malt, nutty, earthy. Taste is sweet roasty/cocoa/slight root licorice-medium/dark malt, nutty, earthy/spice hops. A bit earthier and roastier than my taste but nicely done.
