Dark brown color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, & some caramel; Flavor of slight roasted sweet malt, some buckwheat, dark chocolate, hops, and nuts; Finish is slightly bitter; Not too bad.
650 ml bottle. deep brown pour that thickens up to opaque black, finger of foamy tan head. Aroma is nutty, with some roast. Some heavier malt notes come through in the malt, toffee, but still dominated by nuttiness, some light fruitiness (orange) come from the hops in the finish. Enjoyable but just good for me.

Clear brown with ruby edges, has a foamy tan thick head of fine bubbles. Hints of Hazelnut, cocoa, grain with toasted malty sweetness. Rich, sweet, roasty, nutty. Has a nice mouthfeel & good body. I like this, it isn’t a top shelf beer but very solid and well made. I could drink it often! Onslow (1513) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Pour from a 22 oz bomber. Deep clear dark brew that glowers reddish brown in the sunlight. Two fingers of tan head upon pouring that settles down to a steady frothy creamy small head for the duration. Nutty aroma dominated by rich roasted malts. Taste is sweet malts, caramel and nuts up front finishing with a lingering nutty malty rich finish with shades of bitter and sour hops towards the end. Ends clean and dry with a just bit of lingering roasted nutty malt at the tail. A complex malt based brew with a unique and interesting flavor profile. Based on the taste its sort of like a brown ale but much richer and more complex than most., Really enjoyable.
