12 ounce bottle, 20 ounce nonic.
A - A nice reddish light brown color, think cherrywood with the red toned down just a bit. Nice head of off white/light tan foam.
S - Roasted malts and a touch of caramel.
T - Nice nuttiness with some roastiness. Sugary sweetness shows through. The roastiness combines with a fairly assertive hop bitterness on the finish. Those characteristics help the beer finish fairly dry considering the flavor characteristics. As it wamrms a bit, some earthy hop shows through in the finish and complements everything nicely. A nice, unique tasting brown.
M - Medium bodied. Fairly snappy, but easy to handle carbonation.
D - A nice, drinkable brown. Good combo of smooth sweetness with the roasted malt character. The hop poking it's head up at the end makes you want more.

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.
