Draft at the source. Cloudy amber brown color. Aroma is nutty and toasty. Taste has sharp spices. ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 13, 2013
Aroma of caramel, nuts, chocolate and light floral presence. Appearance is amber/brown with sticky tan head. Flavor matches the nose, except that the flavor seems to quickly move to the finish, which is dry. Palate is medium, tacky and very soft. Could have used a little more endurance in the flavor. chicowv (478) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Growler from BBC: Pours syrupy brown with a nice head. Aroma is sour and leather as is the taste. Not very good at all.. Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Dark brown color. Aroma of malt, toasted nuts, and maybe chocolate. Taste is mostly of dark malt with a little nuttiness. Mouth feel is full above average carbonation. Overall a good beer.

Draft at brewpub. Pours dark brown with an inch of khaki foam. A couple of nutty notes on the nose. There’s nuttiness on the tongue but it seems to fade as the beer opens up. Finishes clean. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Lighter to medium cola brown. Milder aroma. Nutty flavor, light chocolate notes in finish. Light mouthfeel.
Could use a bit more body, decent flavor. sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Tap. Pours clear brown with average, creamy off-white head; short retention and spare lacing. Aroma is heavy caramel malt, hazelnut, floral hops, figs, dates, and light toast. Flavor is sweet malt forward with supporting dark fruit esters and some light earthy notes; sweet finish. Light body, low carbonation, and low warmth. bth122 (1556) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2012
