quite tasty, very malty and roasted all the way through, looks good, medium body and a tad astringent at the end. nuplastikk (6220) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2008
12oz bottle. Minimal, non-offensive odor. Deep brown chestnut color. Not quite opaque, but pretty close. Mellow dark malt flavors with a smooth sugary finish. Mild hop balancing, no real stand out characteristics. Very easy drinking with a pleasant body. Not as good as the Nut Brown Ale, hopefully not a replacement.

Draugh, #412 Dark pour with nice head. Slightly malty aroma. Little roasty flavor, really not much. Pretty bad beer overall, especially from Flying Dog! nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2008 The aroma is chocolaty, with toasted malt and toffee. The appearance is brown with an average head. The flavor is malty and very much like the aroma. The finish is bitter in a somewhat astringent way. The palate is thin. Overall I am impressed. Holdwine (1227) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 16, 2008
Nice effort here. Enough hops to keep you happy with a creamy, slightly sweet malting. Easy to drink.

I had a glass of this beer on tap at the Flying Dog brewery in Frederick. The beer had a medium-dark brown color with a good-sized, foamy, off-white color, that had good retention and cling. The aroma was not too strong, mostly featuring some earthy and grainy hops, with caramel malt and a bit of barley. Its flavor was slightly sweet and malty, but also had a blend of earthy and bitter tones. A slightly creamy, wetter beer, with lower carbonation and a fullish mouthfeel.
