Bottle. Pours brown, clear, with small white head. Aroma is nutty, chocolate, some coffee. Flavor is mixed malts, with chocolate, roasted malt, some caramel, mildly sweet. A bit thin in flavor, but I think this beer is clearly underrated.

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Bottle from Whole Foods in Greenville, SC. Really not that bad of a brown ale. Pretty solid flavors of toasted malts with a bit of bitter hops leading to a dry finish. Slightly watery, but overall not bad.

bubbleflubber (2197) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours a nut brown into the glass, with a creamy tan head that leaves window-wash lacing. The nose is nice, of chocolate malt and roasted, toasty notes. The flavors follow somewhat in tow, with a malty front, maybe some hints at dry-roasted almonds mid-palate, and closes a bit bitter toward the finish. The mouthfeel is thinner and light-bodied, with aggregate carbonation. Decent brew, but doesnt stand apart from the "brown ale" crowd as anything special.

Finhead (1673) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2010
A medium brown pour with off-white head. A malty aroma with some mild chocolate notes. The taste is lively with semi-sweetness and a medium body. The finish is fairly dry, a little astringent, and surprisingly bitter.

Dorwart (2562) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Wow, some really nasty looking stuff at the bottom of the bottle. Almost looks like cream of wheat. Strong head of fine bubbles. Roasty and nutty aroma with some molasses. Color is a dark mahagony brown. Slightly bitter flavor but is dominated by roasted flavors. Some light grainy notes and tea leaves. Lingering roasty and bitter finish. An ok brew.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Bottle from Sams in Durham. Pours chestnut, clear, with an impressive beige head. Nice lacing. Nose shows malts of nuts and mild chocolate. Metallic interference. Taste hits malt notes but without the metal. Light palate. Simple but lessened by the weird nose.
