On tap at Yard House. A little darker than your typical Brown ale. Very simular to the Rogue Hazelnut. Lots of caramel with a hint of chocolate. Nice carbonation, nice lacing, small light thin head.

Poured with no head, color a deep brown as expected. Aroma malted chocolate plus alcohol. Taste is pleasant toasty roasted malts at first, abruptly changing to watery Lipton tea-bag. Hops are barely perceptible as a backdrop of dish-soap. Alcohol very prominent as a flavor despite the beer being only 5%, perhaps due to the light hopping & lack of floral aromas. Quite creamy mouth feel, with small bubbles. I agree that this might be better as a nitro pour. As is, tastes like a weak porter needing additional floral hops.

A nice little beer -- not very assertive -- smells better than it tastes -- a not too heavy nut brown that hints a nutty, roasted malt but doesn't back it up very much. A good choice, but not the best -- but I'll buy it again.

12oz bottle: Pours dark brown with a very thin head that is a creamy tan in color. The aroma reminded me of caramel and pecan with a Nutty flavor. All in all it was a very good beer.

Not the best Id hoped for, but still decent. Initially it is hoppy, but then it finishes with a pleasant earthy taste. Despite it not being particularly grand, I did finish two glasses before I knew it.

A dark cola color with a lot of creamy-tan head. Mildly hoppy aroma. Lightly flavored and a bit thin. A little charcoal bitterness and some sweet malt. Nothing special.

From Degarth on a trade. <P>Pours a cloudy brown with a quickly disappearing offwhite head. Im catching light hops in the aroma, with a bit of caramel. Flavors pretty plain, little chocolate, little sweet, little hops. Mouthfeel is good though, nicely carbonated and refreshing. Not bad.

Bottle. Poured Brown with little white head, notes of toasted caramel. finishes easy. All the right pieces, but it doesnt seem to pull them all together into something special.
