It is brown. Smells a like caramel. No nut flavor or smell to be seen. Way too much carbonation. This beer foams like crazy in your mouth and interferes with any tasting much.

Good color, good flavor. Like other posters, not much aroma and the flavor doesnt last very long. An average nut brown.

ChainGangGuy (4883) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 23, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown with a dense, off-white head. Smell: Sweet-smelling, enormously nutty aroma. Hints of cocoa powder. Taste: The taste is initially semi-sweet, but incredibly nutty and toasted all the while. Again, theres that hint of cocoa. Just enough of a gentle, subtle bitterness on the dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Ill tell you what, it was surprisingly nice, at least on-tap.

dwyerpg (6028) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2007
Really not much aroma but a solid dark color. Flavor is a little toasty and a bit nutty. Nothing to write home about; the finish is nutty but also a lttle thin at the same time.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Bottled. Beer is clear, dark mahogany brown. Head is off-white, frothy, initially small, rapidly and almost totally diminishing.<P>The aroma is malty with moderate notes of husky toasted grain, light wort and toasted nuts; Hoppy with light notes of herb; Yeasty with a light note of sticky dough.<P>The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic with an average-length, lightly acidic, lightly sweet, trace bitter finish.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P> Oddly tangy and raw.

Malty. Really nice color for a brown. Nothing spectacular, but very drinkable.

Good name; not so good beer. Brownish color. Hit the style in flavor, but was pretty bland. Could have been more assertive.

Bottle trade with shigadeyo. Poured a clear dark brown color with a medium off-white frothy head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Medium toasted nutty malty aroma. Medium body. Medium toasted bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of average duration. Interesting label.
