12 ounce bottle poured into a shaker pint. Very dark brown with just a hint of reddish hues. Small but resilient creamy beige head and full lacing.
Moderate toasted and caramel malts, roasted nuts, chocolate, coffee, and just a tiny bit of citrus in the background.
Flavor is full of malts, but not ridiculously sweet, and lacks the vinegar/acidity of a lot of browns out there. Somewhat fruity, caramel, light hop bitterness, and toast.
Medium-bodied and medium carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel.
I'm not a huge brown fan, but this one was pretty good and I try to keep style in mind when rating. Overall this is a nice late-fall/early-winter beer when I'm not quite in the mood for a heavier stout/porter or anything too spiced.

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.
