scotchzombie (612) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Pours garnet-tinted brown with a tan head that quickly fades to a collar from a cold bottle. No lacing to speak of. Aroma is mild, nutty malt with a echo of cocoa. Taste is somewhat watery, metallic and flat with semi-sweet flavors of malt, cocoa and caramel and mild bitterness to finish. Better as it warms; drinkable but not memorable from a brewery that has some solid output. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nutty, light chocolate, a bit of brown sugar, lightly toasted malts. Medium bodied. Solid brown ale and really dug the low abv.

Leafs93 (2343) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Pours brown with a thin tan had. Aroma is coffee, bitter sweet chocolate and toasty. Taste is sweet with a twinge of tartness on the finish. Smooth and almost creamy mouth feel. Enjoyable.

maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Pours very dark with minimal head. There are some hints of nuttiness to it, which was a little surprising. Good level of roasting in the nose on this beer. An interesting find...

strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 3, 2012
Bottle from sampler. A rich brown that has some porter like qualities with the chocolate and a little heavier body (which I like). Surprised by how low the alcohol content is for such a flavorful beer. Very good.

tkrjukoff (4334) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2012
Tap at Natty Greene’s. Pours brown mahogany with a nice creamylight tanned head. Aroma is sweet, caramel, coffee, nutty and some chocolate. Flavor is similar to the aroma, too sweet for me though, lots of coffee and chocolate. Some vanilla as well. Finishes sweet malty and bitter.
