pours dark reddish amber with ample fluff on top. it looks enticing
smells of buttery, nutty brown malts. it has a hint of a hop profile, that, while not too strong, is still very much Sierra Nevada.
the taste has a good bit of toffee, roasted nutty brown malts, and a crisp floral hop bite. it's a little bit hard to love this, though, because it tastes like every other brown ale but with a Sierra Nevada hop profile, which isn't strong, but distinct. bitterness medium for a brown ale. nearly nonexistent for a Sierra Nevada beer. it's on the good side of average for this style.
mouthfeel creamy, with the perfect amount of carbonation.
it's an easy drinking beer. one that non-craft drinking friends can enjoy. i would definitely drink this beer over most other brown ales

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.
