Pours a dark cloudy reddish brown, with two fingers head- viewed from the top, my glass looks like a bowl of oatmeal. Smell is mostly of dark fruit, slightly tart; some molasses and nutty smells. Taste is of mild nutty/fruity sweetness, with little bits of citrus. Neither are particularly complex, and the finish is mostly watery. Thin-bodied, with very light carbonation.
12oz bottle. Clear medium brown with a thin tan head. Nuts, cherries, chocolate, caramel, sweet malt, medium hops bitterness gives it some lift. Hoppy, cocoa finish. Drjohnrock (841) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Twelve ounce bottle from mix six pack bought at Ingles Supermarket, tasted on July 26, 2017. Brown/amber hue, sweet but firm malty aroma, interesting bittersweet taste with some mustiness and more heft than a lot of brown ales; only a bit too much astringency keeps this from getting a higher score. wombat23 (2149) - Texas, USA - NOV 25, 2016
12 oz. bottle. Clear dark amber, beige head. Malty aroma. Taste is malt, brown bread, nuts, hints of caramel. Decent. slowrunner77 (13206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 2, 2016
12 oz from Tavour. A little hoppier and drier than most browns with a diverse malt aroma and flavor. A little thin and dry, better than ok - but not quite into the good/very good range. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JUL 2, 2016

Bottle from ABC. Caramalt and American hop aroma. Nice. The taste is similar but not quite as good. jsporrer (1147) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Poured from a bottle. Pours a medium brown with a thin tan ring. Caramel and roasted malt aroma. Fairly smooth start with a light malt flavor and a medium hop bite. I prefer more malt balance and less hops in a dark beer. Finish is very bitter. Drinkable but not that enjoyable. ryanscourt (1571) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2015
Not a bad drink. oasty malt flavor with touch of hop balance. Their is a slight sweetness and fruit ester flavor. Rather bland watery mouthfeel overall though. Foxbush (2143) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 28, 2015
12 oz bottle from the AOPD beers each month The ale poured a clear brown color with small head and limited lacing. There is a nice roasted malt aroma that greets you. The taste is more complex with nuts and roasted malt. The ale has a light body with soft carbonation. The finish was clean with hop flavors closing out the beer..
