Dark amber brown, with slight rings of drawn down amber at the edges. From an angle, looking down on it, it looks like a black & tan - amber on the bottom and dark on the top. Thick tan head sits heavy, leaving rings with each drink.
Roasty, chalky, with a distinct nuttiness, akin to roasted hazelnuts. Smells good, if a little muted.
Sitting somewhere between an amber and a light porter, I pick up on two levels of maltiness. There's one that comes through with carbonation on the tongue, with a clean toffee-like malt. A second is roasted and creamy, but aside from the other. Uniquely tasty. Seems like a beer that should be poured from little brown jug.
Good balance between the carbonation and creaminess. Dry, but sticky to close.
Not sure why it's considered a seasonal, but I don't mind it. Good enough to be enjoyed year-round.

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.
