The beer pours a pretty amber brown like light grade maple syrup. The head is big, fluffy and smooth, with a nice light tan coloring and it lasts for a little while at a fingers width leaving sticky lacing splotches behind. The beer smells strongly of nutty roasted malts. Hints of roasting bread, earthy hops, and bready yeast can also be found in the nose. There is also a phenomenal whiff of decaying leaves which reminds me so heavily of fall and my childhood that it sends shivers of nostalgia through me. The beer tastes nicely sweet and nutty, with nice roasted notes and hints of nut bread, and earthy hops and leaves. This beer tastes of the fall. It is cool and crisp yet warming and sweet. Slight candied notes reminiscent of maple syrup are also present on the tongue. The beer opens with nutty sweet malt and then transitions into roasted bread before the taste closes down into a roasted nut aftertaste with slight coffee hints. The mouthfeel is kind of prickly with the carbonation, but the beer is smooth and slightly creamy with a nice light chewiness to it. Overall this is a fantastic seasonal brew, and a wonderful autumn brown that stylistically echoes the season in taste and smell. Another great offering from Sierra Nevada, and definitely worthy of a taste.

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.
