The flavor for this one has some roasted malt,coffee. As well I am getting some chocolate and smoky notes.
The aroma is nothing special for me. It has some bread and smokey
Pours a brown color with some ruby hue’s. It has a nice off white creamy head and some spotty lacing.
The finish has some bitterness from the different hop’s used in the brew process. Also there is some from a dark chocolate too. It is a pretty good beer overall but a little rich for my taste for a brown. sickassmick (229) - Concord, California, USA - JUL 30, 2010
This is a great, fresh tasting beer. clean fermentation, not any off flavors i can pick up, good sweet semi-dark malty taste, more caramel than chocolate, but perfect hop finish, and not so heavy. fun to drink, perfect carbonation, not filling, and another slam dunk for sierra. mikedevilsfan (226) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2013
Decent brown, but a little thin. Taste of caramel malts and sweetness on the pallet. Must drink it fresh. mikalooch (224) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with a generous white head, thick lacing. Aroma is bready, yeasty, and nutty. Toasted malt all the way to start, gives in to some nuttiness followed by a touch of astringency, but not off putting. Easily put down, mild carbonation. Overall a very good and interesting brown ale. tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Hint of cinnamon and pumpkin spice smells. A little nutty and malty, but a little thin with no head. A slight bitter aftertaste. It looks and smells better than it tastes, but it’s not a bad autumn beer.

24 oz Bottle -- Pours dark brown with a medium off-white head. Aromas of Roasted malt, caramel, nuts, chocolate, and hops. Dry mouth-feel with some sweetness. Doesn’t taste nearly as good as it smells sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - OCT 26, 2010
First off, love the bottle label. Feels like fall in a bottle. Smells hops, fresh roasted nuts, and carmel. Appearance is clear brown, 2 finger head dissipates to thin ring. Medium carbonation, tastes of nuts, hops, carmel, slightly sweet. Medium bodied, tan/cream head. Not a session brew, but a great way to spend a nice, cool Fall evening on the deck. Mostly hoppy witaste with chocolate malt to balance it out, very crisp, enjoyed with porkc chop and stuffing. Shakesbeere (222) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2011
12 oz. bottle. Pours a caramel amber brown with a short foamy cream head. Smells of subtle fresh hops, caramel, and nut with some very slight roasted malt. Tastes is a fine balance between an earthy hop crispness and a malt flavor backed with nut, toffee, bread, a hint of molasses, and a tad bit of smoke. Very nicely balanced and clean -- a nice session beer. garth_86 (221) - EDMONTON, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2012
Pours a dark orange. A bready malty smell and taste is ok. Easy drinking beer good for the season. CJ_Pain (221) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Solid brown. Malt backbone with traces of hops. Good fall ale. In 2014 SN Fall mix pack. Once was regular seasonal offering until the vastly inferior flipside red came out. Needs to come back as a mainstay.
