Decent brew. Pours beautifully with a light brown body and big fluffy almond coloured head. soft sweetness and nutty character all the way through. Aroma is sweet, taste is of honey roasted peanuts and apples. JoeM500 (1909) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2004
Festival tap: Caramel color, nutty nose. Too sweet, like dumpster juice. Sweetness overpowers. balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - FEB 27, 2005
Brownish color with a red tint and small off white head. Creamy vanilla hazelnut aroma with a subtle hint of chocolate. Smooth body with a roasted nut flavor but quite watery and lacking. DarkElf (3067) - La Jolla, California, USA - DEC 12, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Not much going on with this beer, not much flavor for a nut brown, and what flavor there is isn’t especially pleasing. Moderate sweetness, chocolaty and light toasty maltiness, and by the power of suggestion, I think I detect a hint of nuttiness. A bit more nutty in the nose, but again, I’m getting mostly sweet chocolate. The body is way too thin for the style, bordering on watery, especially in the finish. Light-medium brown body is capped by a standard size off-white head that settles to a wide ring, leaving bits and pieces of lace on the glass. Much better than the other LogJam beers I’ve had, but that’s not saying much. Even though this one is palatable, I still won’t drink it again because it’s below average for the style. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Very dark brown body. Not much in the way of carbonation or red coloring. The head is thin and slightly khaki. The armoa is typical with caramel and a dose of chocolate. There is also some hints of wood. The taste is old dry wood with a little bit of day old coffee. There is also some very subtle note of chocolate, but it is overwhelmed by the wood and old coffee. Bad finish.

Reddish brown body under a light tan head. Aroma of dark caramel malt, milk chocolate, and a touch of nuttiness. It was rather thin and watery and lacking in any real depth but wasn’t awful, either.
