A: Off-white 1-finger head that falls to a thin layer of foam. Dark clear brown color. Mild lacing.
S: Malty, sweet and rich, like whole wheat biscuits and fresh baked bread. A slight cider scent, very mildly buttery. Smells homey and comfortable, relaxing like a calm living room fire.
T: Caramel and malt all the way with a hint of nuttiness. It has some of that cider tang. A bitterness in the end that seems suggestive of both certain malts as well as hop presence.
M: Somewhat thin at first but the body builds as you sip. Seems strange, but it does. Carbonation is a bit harsh for the laid back richness of the flavor.
O: A not disappointing beer but not as outright satisfying as some of SN’s other offerings. I think it would be a much nicer ale if it were bottle-conditioned and/or offered on nitro.

Sampled tonight on 6/26/14. Found this bottle in the back of the cooler so it is a good year old I am guess BUT there isn't a expiration date anyone on the bottle and this brew is now RETIRED and no longer brewed. But opened it and it was fine. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a 14 ounce glass 'Texas style " boot.
Pours a clear dark brown in color with a good 3-finger off-white head! Good carbonation with some sediment left in the bottom of the bottle. The aroma is of roasted malts, hazel nut and brown sugar. Very nice! The taste is close to the aroma but not as strong BUT pretty good overall with all the flavors mentioned above coming through lots of the hazelnut 'nut' flavor in the mix. A slight dry smoke finish but still good.
