Medium brown color. Very malty nose with some nice nuttiness and chocolately character. The mouth is very malty, slighly tart with a lingering nuttty finish. Nice stuff. mcberko (18975) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a clear dark amber brown with a small tan head. Aroma brings out dry cocoa, milk chocolate, and toasted nuts. Flavour is smooth, with notes of milk chocolate and hazelnut. Toasty, nutty and chocolatey, with a dry palate. Very solid stuff - much more interesting than typical brown ales.

Draft - Nice dark toasted malts with caramel and nutty notes. Deep clear brown with a nice rich beige head. Cocoa, toffee and hazelnut with a touch of bitterness. Solid brown. andrewje41 (4257) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - OCT 10, 2014
Draft pour at the church key pub. Pours a really dark brown with a nutty malty aroma. Smooth caramel malt flavor all throughout. A standard brown ale for me, I enjoyed it. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear very dark brown color with a moderate tan head on there. Nose is a nice mix of nuttiness and toasting, and belies a very flavorful beer. Taste is a bit sweet, with some nice toasting and some subtle caramel and nutty notes. Really interesting.

Wow, absolutely splendid. Most brown ales seem to be too hoppy or thin. This is not on either count. Strong malt flavors, which I like. Strong brown ale flavor, which I like even more. Amazed they packed this much flavor in this low of an ABV. Good, good, good! Theis (15151) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2014
Draught at Devil Craft. Clear brown - white head. Nutty. Roasted. Light bitterness. Some freshness. High nutty. Light sweetness. Ok. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle... Poured deep brown with a moderate khaki head. Typical of style. Not bitter or crazy but just a nice nutty, toasted malt presence with a standard yeast presence for the style. Earthy, mildly dry, not too much for hops going on. kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Poured from draft at their taproom. Clear lighter brown pour. Kinda watery. Decent but flavor with some malts. Average brown troopie (2439) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Warm brown colour in draught. Sweet and nutty with a bit of pecan? in the aroma. Again, would make a good session beer if served in small enough glasses. Good for washing down spices.
