3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nutty brown sweet ale with a caramel and malt aroma and a hint of spice at the end. Good alternative to typical summer beers.
Bottle. Pours dark brown-black with light tan head and lacing. Nose of bread crust, spice, and peanuts. Complex flavors: Spicy bitterness on the tip of the tongue followed by peanuts and bread crust. Lighter body than expected.

12oz bottle pours auburn with small tan head slight lacing smells of cinnamon with roasted nuts taste was smokey with a spice background not my favorite style but i liked this one. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - OCT 28, 2016
Copper color with just a hint of ruby. Small thin head of khaki colored bubbles. Dark brown sugar and heavily toasted malt scents, some licorice and toasted hazelnuts as well. Flavors are rather dry, with some earthy malt and darker toasted grain. Rather acidic in the finish and linger. 2/11

Bottle - dark tea color pour with a small head. Toasty aroma and a taste of walnuts, graham crackers and caramel. Medium body. Pretty good.

Bottle at Parlour with commomshawn before Punch Brothers at First Ave. Brown in color with minimal head. Aroma is malty with a little sweetness. Actually does remind me a bit of nuts. Taste is pretty thin. Mostly malty with roasted presence. Slight syrupy bitterness especially at the end. Sweetness in the aroma disappears during the sip. Not terrible but not worth seeking out either. Nat King Cole would find another option.

Bottle at parlour with commonmac. Poured into pint glass. Dark brown and flat with little lacing. Sweet aroma. Smooth and mild , some malt. Light chocolate notes with toffee. Lacks punch. Worth slowly walking up a hill for but nothing amazing. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2015

Very dark brown color. Smells and tastes like roasted nuts with a little bit of chocolate.

12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Pours a half hazy brown red color, with a good finger-thick khaki head. Fades to a thin amount, and leaves good ridges of lace. Nutty, cocoa, chocolate, and coffee notes up front. Medium plus body. Smooth, creamy texture, good full mouthfeel. Lighter, creamy carbonation. Light slick finish. Kind of a chewy texture, pretty nice. Moderate sweet taste, lighter bitterness. Bottle says this brewed with cinnamon and nutmeg but I get a lot less of that than expected, it’s very subtle... What’s big in the flavor is not mentioned on the bottle, the nice big nuttiness. Some cinnamon, butterscotch comes out later. Great brown ale. A lot better than expected.
