3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle to mug. Pours dark brown (surprise?) with thin tan head that continues to ring. Bread and nuts (another surprise?). Typically sweet with just a touch of bitter. Nicely carbonated that creates a mouthfeel. Nothing over powering about this, just a drinkable brown ale.
12 oz bottle pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of malts, nuts and toffee. Taste is nutty and roasted caramel malts.

bottle. clear brown with a creamy, beige head with good retention. sour nose. foamy mouthfeel. some faint notes of brown sugar and nuts, but this one may be a little infected. sour flavor(cidery, green apple, acetaldehyde). missing some fullness...some sweetness. just foamy and thin.

Bottle. Poured brown with an off-white head. Aroma of roast, brown sugar, nut, and molasses. The flavor found roast, nut and hints of brown sugar. Medium body and a light roast aftertaste. Suttree (6466) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Brown, thin white head. Smells very sweet - brown sugar, caramel, molasses. Fairly rich. Flavor is sweet, too caramel, brown sugar. Pretty typical brown ale. New Tennessee beer though, so it’s got that goin’ for it... nearbeer (5514) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2011
12 oz. Deep brown with ruby hues, and a lasting creamy head. Nose of spicy cocoa and toasted nut shell. Taste is the same, plus some milk chocolate, dry grass and wood. Light-medium body is a little rough and to the sweet side, but fairly sessionable.

Bottle. Pours medium brown with a big, foaming, overcarbonated head. Aroma and flavor are some roasted malt, caramel, molasses, macadamias and other roasted nuts, a touch of tartness, and some metal (in the foam). Palate is on the thin side. Didn’t quite come together for me. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 8, 2011
Bottled. Poured clear, medium amber with not a whole lot of head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and nutty notes with some fruity overtones.. sweet overall and fairly pleasant. The flavor found nutty notes, molasses, and a little chocolate at the core (more chocolate as it progressed).. some sour malty notes throughout.. dry on the finish. Light-bodied on the palate, with the tartness giving some really odd character.. didn’t seem infected, though.. I didn’t much care for this. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Pours ruby brown with a thick foamy beige head. Aroma has lots of roasty malt and nut. Taste is the same, lots of toasted malts. Thinner body, high carbonation. Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2010
Pours a lasting ring of beige head with a brown body. Aromas are roasted and nutty. Flavors are roasted, little toasted, caramel and nutty. Decent body and finish.
