Bold, deep amber beer. Nutty notes added to a bit of coffee. Medium body. Lorenasa (159) - Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours nearly black with small tan head. Caramel and chocolate aroma. Initially malty with a hoppy finish.

I love the way a stout pours! This followed that tradition nicely while adding a bit of its own. A very smooth beer with easy drink-ability. bnoel09 (588) - Elk Grove, California, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Poured into a Shmaltz Brewing pint glass. Color is dark cola brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is very nutty with some roasted malts and chocolate notes. Flavor is nutty at the start with chocolate through the middle and a nice roasted finish with coffee notes. Palate is smooth and slightly creamy with a medium body. Overall this is a nice brown ale with some well developed flavors that you might expect more in a porter or stout. S_Side_Smitty (802) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Pours a clear dark brown with a minimal off white head. Aroma is rich cocoa, heavy malts, molasses, and faint whisky. Taste is a creamy chocolate & pecan-almond nut flavor up front and through the mid palate with rich roasted malts throughout. The malts linger and fade into a subtle hop bitterness. Really well balanced and just plain good.

APPEARANCE - deep brown color, clear with lightest beige head.
NOSE – very pleasant malty sweetness.
FLAVOR – exceptionally smooth and malty sweet flavor.
NOTES - Seems like the perfect example of a brown ale to me. jew02 (16) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2004
Bought this beer just because of the bottle. It turns out that this kosher beer has a great flavor. Wouldn’t recommend this as part of a drinking game but if you just lounging and rinking its a great beer. swanmann (778) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 16, 2006
Bottle pours a medium, light tan head. Aromas of coffee, similar to a porter. Rich, full, well balanced malty flavor of chocolate, with a really bright note lingering. Maybe a bit over-carbonated. At present I see I’m the highest rating on the page. Oy. I like it. So shoot me already. beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 2, 2006
Dark ruby tinted brown. Soft, medium cap of fluffy tannish foam thats fastly dissolved to its skim and collar. Lacing is minimal in a few spots and strings.
Aroma is tenderly sweetened with a light roasted caramel/toffee with notes of vanilla, maple, and molasses.
Taste is solid with a firmly smooth maltyness of touch and go roasted hints under some fantastic solid tones of toffee, caramel, molasses, nuts, cocoa, and maple. Very firm and boldly set along the palate. Lengthy with just a breath of citric, piney hops towards the finish and lingers nicely with a moderate coating of toasted nuts and caramel.
Firm, smooth, medium body thats very fitting and easy going with a slick malty texture that screams to be drank. And by the pint full! A very solid brown. mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Good not great nut brown ale. Aroma is suitably nutty in aroma. Taste-wise, tho, the nuttiness and maltiness are a bit weak and overpowered by the hops, leading to a somewhat unbalanced brew. B-
