Slightly nutty aroma in front of plenty of noble hops along with some caramel apple and dried fruit accents. Hazy, Coca-Cola appearance under a thin foam of off-white. Dry, nutty flavour, like dry-roasted nuts, with a decent amount of bitterness and faint, spicy hops. Fairly weak in flavour, overall. Notes of tobacco and dried fruit. Light body, moderate carbonation, bitter nutty finish. madmitch76 (24360) - , Essex, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2012

Cask at GBBF. Clear dark brown beer. Softish palate. Sourish malt with an odd spicy tone. Finishes dry. A bit odd.
Dark amber/cider color; Light to medium body; Aroma of toasted malt, some caramel, & spice; Flavor of slight roasted sweet malt, caramel, hops, and some fruit; Finish is slightly bitter and a little tart; Overall, a bit thin - decent I guess for a session brew. halfonit (1356) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 10, 2012
Pours a deep amber color. Clear. Aroma is of malts, slight skunk, burnt rubber, and maybe some eggs. Flavor is very mild. I can pick up malts, bark, hops, rye, and grain. Leaves a bitter weed finish. Very let down by these guys. boto (2193) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Draught @ Barley Pub: This one poured a clear, dark caramel color. There was a small off-white head that didn’t linger or leave any lacing. It has a lighter aroma. Some caramel notes, some toasted malts also. The taste is nice. Some toasted caramel malt, with a very faint chocolate malt taste. Slightly bitter, with a bit of a dry finish. Nice.

On draft @ the Barley Pub in Dover, NH. Served in a pint glass. Deep brown in color, small head with very light lace. Malt nose with a bit of earthy tones. Caramel, roasted malt and light hops. Has a light sweet caramel finish. Drinkable any season of the year. Not the best in the style I have tried but, respectable. skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 20, 2011
6 pack of 12oz bottles picked up in North Conway, NH.
Whenever I travel I seek out a beer or two that I can not get here in Mass. I sipped on a couple of these by the fire, and it was a welcome break from drinking Guinness. The pour is dark brown with an off-white head. The flavor is cashews, brown sugar, and a spicy alcohol finish. The hops are present as it warms up a bit. I was expecting Double Bag or better, but this falls short with a thin body. The flavors are decent and it is very drinkable. johnnnniee (4236) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 29, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2011 Picked up a sixer of this today and had one after shoveling the driveway.
Pours a solid brown that shows some ruby highlights when held up to the light. Two finger off white head that dissipates quickly and leaves minimal lacing on the way down the glass. Smell is a bit roasty, chocolatey and some caramel thrown in there too. Taste follows the smell, but adds a hop bite in the finish. Medium thick creamy smooth mouthfeel with adequate carbonation. I am pleasantly surprised this is a great little session brew from an up and coming local company. thetomG (246) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2010
Nice dark brown, mostly clear pour. Thick layer of foamy head. Smell is pretty mild - a bit of toasty barley. Flavor follows but with a bit more going on - still mild though.
Nice light mouthfeel & good carbonation - easy to drink, but there’s a very slight metallic tinge to it that is slightly off-putting.
Glad I tried this but not something I’ll be seeking out again.

355ml bottle from jsprime. pours hazed brown with red highlights. great lasting and lacing tan head. big rich malt nose. the flavour are a little lacking compared to the nose. spot on for an alt just a little to watery mid palate. would make a nice fall drinker.
