A - Very dark amber. Stiff light beige head created a solid wall of lacing on the side of the glass (well done indeed).
S - A little more "Bocky" than I expected. Mild hop. Definitely an American, not English, Brown.
T - Way different than I expected based on the smell. Malt and hop are in balance, though hops are more for drying it out rather than taste. Some toffee and chocolate in the background.
M - Wow... the dryness is really well done and not puckering at all. Mildly crisp. The linger did not get lost in the dryness, and is just about perfect. Carb is pretty creamy but not lacking.
O - Quality is there. Not just a brewery trying to have "some thing different for a seasonal". Go S.N. Kinda sorry I only got one so late in the season.
Side Note: Awesome with some sweet potato fries and horseradish mayo.

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.
