Amber brown in appearance with strong nutty taste and a dark crystal malt. Smooth aftertaste and light in carbonation. bpar73 (1117) - Bellaire, Michigan, USA - OCT 5, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2012 Dark brown color with creamy head. Pleasant aroma of malt, maple, and toffee. Pleasant flavors of maple, chocolate, nuts, caramel, and malts. Very good beer. chicowv (478) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2012
12 oz bottle: Pours a dark chestnut brown with a decent white head. No CO2 release or lacing. Aroma is bad, smells like a sour American lager. Taste is pretty bad too. Not much flavor for a nut brown, weak, thin, bland. Poor offering overall. Huhzubendah (3701) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle from drabmuh in an effort to help me review all 104 styles. Thanks Matt!
A: The beer is clear and light copper hued, with 1/4" of head.
S: The aroma is primarily of sweet malt, lager, subtle fruits.
T: The beer has some good flavors happening, but they are all very muted and mild. Subtle fruit and nut flavors are pleasant but could be brought out more.
M: Thin in body and perhaps a bit low in carbonation.
D: An OK offering. I had no problem finishing a pint, but likely would not go back for another.

Dark, clear amber with a frothy cream colored head. Weak aroma of roasted hazelnuts and light syrup. Taste is nuts and sweet malts, but watery and really thin. Light bodied with average carbonation; again, thin. Decent flavor if it wasn’t so weak.

Brown beer with toasted nuts, caramel, and even a little cocoa going on in there. Light bodied and easily followed by a second or third. The colder the temps the better it flows. dextermorgan (97) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Pours roasted brown, strong toffee, roasted nut taste. A bit sugary and metallic aftertaste, but not a bad evening beer. Travlr (24260) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Freebie at Artomatic. Clear brown. Aroma of nuts. Taste is similar. Pretty plain stuff. 0collins8 (5) - - JUN 15, 2012 does not count
Dark in color with moderate foam. Had a malty smell, and a beautiful brown color. Taste is in the title. Overall a great beer for the holiday season, you m may even consider picking up a few extra packs for of season drinking. dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Light brown, no head. Light aroma of roasted malt. Very very sweet and acidic. Metallic after taste. Meh.
