A finger of head on a black body. Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2013
The aroma is roasted malt and milk, pretty nice.
The taste is great. Chocolate, spice, roasted malt; lots of borderline sweetness but maintains a good balance.
The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation.
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark brown color with a large, almost creamy, khaki head. The nose is cinnamon, cocoa, vanilla, and a little wood. Heavy vanilla and cinnamon on the palate with sweetness up front fading to a mildly bitter finish. Flat and thin on the tongue. Way too much vanilla in this brew. Not for me.

Pours brown with fizzy white head. Nice malt aroma with strong nutmeg components. Very nice brown ale flavor with cocoa and spice. Only complaint is with the mouthfeel. Comes off as a bit fizzy. I’d like it better if it were richer/silkier. A real winner nonetheless. thomas15 (694) - Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2013
Aroma of chocolate, nutmeg, slight cinnamon. Unexpected and vibrant. Dark brown black, off white, beige head leaving good lacing. Immediate chocolate followed by slight vanilla, some cinnamon and then a general earthy malt. Glad I picked this guy up, worthy tribute beer. Has a nice medium to full mouthfeel and body.

Appearance: Cloudy dark brown with a small beige head and some light lacing
Aroma and flavors of toasted malts, brown sugar, nutty and spices
Bottle shared by the group (maybe Chris). Pours a clear dark brown color with a small to medium sized creamy beige head. The aroma is cocoa, light fruity notes, cinnamon and light spices with some lactose like sweetness. The flavor is cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, light fruits and moderate sweetness. Decent, nothing stands out. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Brown with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate, allspice, nutmeg and cinnamon. The flavor is more of the same. I get a ton of cinnamon notes up front, with some nice cocoa and vanilla notes filling in the gaps. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Oscbert (1321) - Lincoln, California, USA - JAN 18, 2013
~strong aroma of caramel malt, bread and cinnamon along with subtle vanilla. It is a very sweet aroma a bit cloying. n00bface (137) - Minneapolis, USA - JAN 17, 2013
~pours a brownish amber color with quickly disappearing light brown head.
~Strong cinnamon bread flavor with caramel and light roastiness.
~Medium bodied with medium CO2, Lingering sweet cinnamon finish.
~The sweet and spice are a bit cloying on this. Would only want to have one of these at the most.

Aroma: Chocolate, spice, cinnamon, vanilla, and coffee.
