Bottle. Itpoured a deep ruby-brown color with a very small head. It had a funny smell that was faintly of malt and creamed corn! The taste was an overly sweet concoction of brown sugar, malt and a wierd sour taste. The finish was kind of bland and lacking in any flavor other than a little chocolate. Not a very enjoyable beer in my opinion.

The fourth wiseman got left at the cantina because the other three didn’t think sweet baby jesus in a manger should know just yet that he was the messiah. Fast forward 2000 years and this beer was then given to Stevie Wonder, who after his first initial sip, could see again for 3.3 seconds, hence the rating.

Poured solid brown, cream head. Nuts, malt in the nose. Fairly sweet, toffee/caramel. Some roasted malts. Clean hop finish. Very even throughout, almost makes it boring. I thought this was a surprisingly good brown ale though.

12 oz bottle into snifter glass. Pours a soda brown with a small light tan head and some decent sticky lacing. Aroma of roasted peanuts, cocoa, toffee, soap and caramel. Taste is strong roasty peanuts, bittersweet chocolate, toffee, caramel and a somewhat soapy taste also coming through. Quick finish of malts and toffee. Medium body, slick texture, medium high carbonation. Not bad, but not great either. Slightly better than average.

Pours a very dark brown, little head. Has a roasted malty aroma, chocolate malt is present in the flavor along with some very mild nuttiness.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle. Dark rusty color with a foamy tan head. Sweet toffee malt aroma with some hints of ripe fruit. Flavor is rather dull with some nutty sweetness. Dry texture and well carbonated. Drinkable but not a standout.

berrya785 (441) - Kansas, USA - APR 18, 2013
Pours a dark brown with red highlights and a one finger tan head. Aroma is toffee, brown sugar, and nutty. Taste is molasses, malty, nutty, and some hops.

caralkaline87 (435) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Pours dark brown with just a touch of off-white head. Nose is very sweet and brown sugary with a little floral hops to balance. Flavor has a light roasted barley quality with brown sugar, dark chocolate, and a pinch of bittering hops. Finish is light and a little oily. The nose is a lot better and fuller than the mouthful, the latter of which comes out a bit too thin and watery. Less dilution would do it a lot of good.

Surprised by the low reviews for this one. Tastes like a dark brown ale. A little to carbonated for me, but a very enjoyable beer.
