12 oz bottle from the Utah system poured into my perfect pint.
Appearance: Huge four fingered, very uniform, tan head sitting atop a clear brown beer. Leaves some lacing as it goes.
Smell: I get nice notes of roast and smoke even away from the glass. A rather strong smell for a beer that is only 5.5 ABV. I get a minerally hop note after the head dissipated a little.
Taste: A nice brown ale. I have never been "wow"ed by a brown, but this one is solid. I get a taste that follows the smell, roast, a touch of smoke. Pretty dry with a touch of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth and coats the mouth easily. The carbonation is pretty strong in this one for some reason.
Overall: This one is a readily available seasonal brown ale at a good price. If I am in the mood for a brown, and this one is available, I will not hesitate to pick it up.

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.
