Pours with moderate turbidity as a deep copper brown. Gives way to a thick, three finger, almond brown head, with good retention and wonderful lacing plastered all over the walls of the glass. Toasty almonds and caramel on the nose, very faint hop aromas, simple but delightful. The flavor is malty and nutty, toasted almonds again, toffee, caramel, cocoa and milk chocolate linger in the shadows. Very nice finish, mouthfeel is creamy and balanced, velvety and slightly sweet, very sessionable. This beer is not complex, just an excellent example of what a brown should be. Sometimes its nice to drink something simple and just plain good.

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.
