12oz Bottle. Pours a dark reddish brown with a nice thin lacy head. The main taste I sense is a sugar and light caramel note. Not that bad just a little sweeter than I had expected

phaleslu (9999) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 20, 2014
12 oz. bottle shared by dudeabide- thanks, Nate! Pours a tea amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of toasted and caramel malts, mixed nuts, and dried leaves. The flavor is the same. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smooth, earthy, sweet mouthfeel. Drinks more like a 5.5% brown ale than a 7.4% strong ale. Either way, not a lot to it.

12 oz bottle shared by dudeabide. Pours a clear amber brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have malts, earth, mild nutty character, caramel, actually pretty drinkable, my expectations were exceeded.

njnut (486) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 14, 2014
Poured from bottle into shaker. Pours almost bottle brown with a haze. Thin off white head with some laceing. Aroma is malt with a nutty flavor. Taste is malt, nut and plum. Light mouth feel. Was a bit light in taste for me but I think it gets stronger in the finish. I picked up a nutty taste turning coffee in the end. Not bad but wouldnt be my a return pick up for me unless I used it as a better gereral brew for friends.

Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Pours a deep amber brown with white foam head. Aroma of dark fruit, candi sugar, caramel, earthiness, and dough. Sweet citrus caramel taste with leathery caramel malt hints on the finish. A creamy, medium body, rugged brown ale that serves its purpose.
