Brown clear beer with beige head. Aroma as Earth and soy sauce. Taste is well balanced. Malt, chocolate, leather and hops. ajnepple (6606) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2013
12 oz bottle. Brown and clear appearance. Nutty, malty aroma with milk chocolate, caramel, toffee and earthy hops. Similar flavor, moderately sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body with a smooth, creamy feel and average carbonation. Not too bad at all, better than I remember. msbernac (2614) - Krakow, POLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Appearance-brown, clear, tan foam,
Palate-medium body, slick feel, soft carbonation, bitter finish
Overall-very good illiniphil (148) - Nashotah, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Pours a dark ruby with a light tan head which quickly dissipated. Taste is chocolate, tobacco and roasted malts. Nice carbonation. Has more body than the typical brown ale. Relatively low abv allows for many to be enjoyed.

Appearance isn’t a good indicator on the taste of this beer, although it’s a beautiful warm color. Everything from the front taste to the understones is enjoyable.
MadRobin (2988) - Silver Spring, Maryland, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle at the Goose Island pub on Pier L, Terminal 3 at Chicago's O'Hare airport.
Clear, but very dark brown with a 3-finger khaki head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of nuts (especially hazelnuts), chocolate, roasted malt, toffee and caramel.
Taste of nuts (again, heavy on the hazelnuts), chocolate, light citrus, roasted malt, toffee and roasted coffee.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
Sweet and malty balanced nicely by the nutty flavors and light citrus hops--exactly what a nut-brown ale should be and so few achieve.

Dark maroon with thin head. Nutty caramel malt aroma. Moderately sweet and medium bodied. MrHangover (4523) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a clear dark amber, brownish beer with a fair amount of off white head on top. Aroma is very nutty, hazelnuts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is like carbonated nutella, which is a good thing in my humble opinion. Some coffee in the middle of the flavor. Very nice and enjoyable. hackobock (4029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2013
