Appearance is a dark mahogany with good foam and lacing. Aroma is, indeed, nutlike, with some rich scents of caramel. Initial taste is composed of creamy smooth yeast balanced by bitter hops that work well. Finish leaves a pleasant taste on the tongue – dry and creamy, like Baileys Irish Cream. Well done!

Medium amber brown with thick tan head and lots of carbonation. Spotty lacing.

Caramel malt nose up front followed by raisin and dark cherry sweetness throughout. Slightly nutty without much hop presence.

Sweet maltiness with more raisin flavor. Slightly bitter with an herbal hoppiness present. The finish and aftertaste show good nuttiness with some more raisin flavor.

Very crisp mouthfeel with a slightly thin body and mouthfeel.

Reddish-brown appearance rather like clay soil with a fine, compact head that dissipates rather quickly, leaving minimal lace. Smell is pleasant and smooth with no particularly remarkable notes beyond an inviting whiff of hops. Taste is wonderfully smooth--rather creamy-sweet at first and with a dryness at the end that lingers for a surprisingly long time. The smooth taste also means a smooth mouthfeel, though it lingers a bit longer than I would prefer. Nevertheless, this is a niceably drinkable beer--the best brown ale I've had thus far.

Poured a dark transparent brown,with a nice tan head,I instantly smell sweetness,rasins,chocolate,it has a bold smell.A suttle nuttiness(go figure)is followed by a whirlpool of sweet whisky,quality coffee,and creamy carmels aged in a wood barrel.The mouthfeel is outstanding,a little thinner than it appears when poured,but it makes for a great beer that is more than drinkable,I cant wait to check this one out again...till next time Mr.Smith
