Clean, slightly malty, definitely smooth with hints of xhocolate and almost a friity tone. Nice aftertaste!

Bottle. Pours a deep amber color with thin tan head. Nice lacing. Not much aroma. The sweetness from the malt comes through. A touch of nuttiness and then a dry finish with just a hint of hops. There’s not much special about this one and the flavor is a bit muted. Its easy drinking along the lines of Newcastle. edgallow (4479) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 4, 2013
12 oz bottle pours brown with a off white head. Aroma is caramel malts and a hint of pine. Taste is nutty and malty. taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - MAR 21, 2010
Very dark - only a little amber shows. The head has large bubbles and is off-white. Aroma is of chocolate malt or chocolate itself. The the taste is just slightly bitter and astringent with hints of chocolate with hops. There’s a spiciness that may be from the hops used here. The palate is surprisingly light for the aroma and taste of this beer. Some bitterness to the finish with plenty of carbonation on the tongue. Interesting beer to taste. deyholla (12315) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
On tap. Poured a clear amber brown with a light tan head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet grains and chocolate with underlying notes of nuts and toffee. Flavor began with light chocolate, nuts and toffee that mellowed slightly to a dark grain and hay finish.

12 oz, bottled 01-19-11. Clear, deep copper-brown with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Aroma is light chocolate-caramel, balanced by a touch of nutty roast and green herb. Flavor is the same, with a tad more roast than in the nose. Body is just shy of medium, fairly smooth with the carbonation, and to the sweet side. alobar (3918) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Dark walnut brown color with an off-white head. Aroma of nuts, chocolate, vanilla and hops. Chocolate, caramel, and vanilla dominate the flavor with hints of hops. Creamy. Enjoyable. r464 (2372) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Malty and full flavored, but not too thick. A hint of sweetness, but tempered with a bread-like central taste. Very balanced and just strong enough. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle:   Not quite brown in color but rather dark reddish amber.   Huge frothy light beige head with sticky lacing.   Soft toasted malts, smidgen of lactose sweetness.   Soft hops up front, moderate toasted malt base.   Not a hoppy brown by any means.   Very minor nuttiness.   Not as robust as their old Nut Brown, a little lighter.   Sessionable, unoffensive, and just plain easy to drink.   I could easily kick back a few of these.   Not half bad.

Poured a resist brown with nice head and lacing. My wife said it didn’t taste like beer which means it was sweet and had very little after taste. Nice beer for summer or winter.
