The first time my buddy and I tried this beer was on draft at another brewery (in Flagstaff) and it was a guest brew. We were speechless and amazed at the complexities of the nutty flavor and malty finish. The next day we drove to Sedona to find the brewery and had another pint. We ordered a keg for our college graduation from the brewery, and have been enjoying ever since. This is a fantastic beer in an uncommon style. jkwalking05 (4735) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Rated in 2010 (Backlog) - Brown in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of nuts, malt and cardboard. Taste is quite nutty with some dirt and caramel. chinchill (4981) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2013
On tap at Brewery & Grill in Sedona.
Crystal clear, deep, dark amber color with a creamy beige head of moderate size and exceptional duration. Leaves plenty of lacing.
Aroma: sweet malts with a strong dose of caramel..
Flavor: Sweet caramel malts with way more bittering hops than the nose suggests. Perhaps overly bitter in finish for style.
Nice medium body; well-chosen medim-light in carbonation,
O: very good. alexandersh (196) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 22, 2013

12oz bottle 2/2/10 (PHX)-Pours medium brown with a small tan head,. Aroma of malt, caramel, and nuts. Taste of the same with more malt. This medium bodied brew is a nice nut brown. JStax (6462) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle received in a trade. Thanks! Pours a darker brown on the verge of ruby with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma is roasty and nutty. Some toffee peeking through. The taste is much sweeter than the aroma indicated. The roast comes through in the finish a little bit, but the sweetness is the predominant characteristic here.

Tap at brewpub which is in the resort I’m staying at, somewhat convenient after drinking this much. Pours brown with beige head and a nose that’s nutty and malty. Tastes of caramel, malt, nuts, earth, raisins, and smoke. Pretty nice tasting albeit straightforward brown ale
