Pours a hazy reddish-brown with an average white fizzy head. Very mild nutty malt aroma. Taste was nutty. Not great but a decent, enjoyable beer.

Bottle pours root beer color with thin, quickly dissipated head. Sarsaparilla and chicory on the nose, finishes soft with low bitterness. Overall, okay, just a little under carbonated.

Tasted on 1/3/12 from a capped 12oz bottle. Pours clear copper brown with a thin white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is lightly nutty with a hint of coffee and a soapy aroma. The flavor is nutty chocolate malt with some green bitterness and a metallic flavor. The body is medium with average carbonation and an average nutty chocolate finish.

Im a bit bias on this beer. Im an absolutely huge fan of new glarus. This beer is a bit nutty but a classic smooth new glarus taste ive come to appreciate. always a treat when i can drink this.

VeinAle (134) - Minnesota, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Smells like your standard brown ale. Looks wonderfully brown with a light head on it. Good sweet malt flavor coupled with a slight bitter. Biscuit hits the nose after the swallow. Medium bodied with average carbonation, sits well with me!

edgallow (4165) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 13, 2015
12 oz bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of malts, nutty and biscuits. Taste is roasted malts and nutty.

3.7
ccex (1288) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
12 oz. bottle pours a dark reddish/brown with small beige head that stays as a ring and leaves spots of lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, brown sugar, and hazelnut. Taste is slightly sweet with a slightly nutty finish and almost spicy aftertaste. Body is medium without much carbonation. Mouthfeel is almost creamy. Very satisfying. and it gets better as it warms up a bit.

Really good full bodied dark beer definately nutty, but not overpowering, light aftertaste - best that New Glarus makes IMHO.
