This beer pours out of the bottle a dark amber, with ruby highlights, topped off with a thick, frothy faintly tan-colored head. The head foams up into a large cloud, but soon dissipates leaving lacing down the sides of the glass as it goes. The nose is fairly faint with a subtle malt flavor coming through, and just a little hop crispness, which only seems to emphasize the malts. The taste mirrors the smell very closely. The main flavor is a smooth well balanced malt character, with just the right hop crispness to emphasize those malts without being too noticeable on its own. This beer has quite a good mouth feel, not too heavy, not too light, and it goes down quite smoothly. This is a very drinkable beer, one I could sit down and drink a few of any time from fall through early spring. Sierra Nevada did a great job with this one, its taste is really reminiscent of a crisp fall day.

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.
