A - Pours a semi-viscous medium brown, not much head but does leave a few bubbles and lacing.

S - Definitely on the sweet side but not artificial by any means. Nice toasted aroma and wonderful nuttiness.

T - Again, a sweet brown ale but done very well. A very pronounced nutty flavor, slightly buttery, light caramel, and just the faintest hint of hops. Finishes with an awesome walnut-like flavor.

M - Medium body with just enough carbonation. Flavors last and it's way too easy to drink in my opinion, but at 5.5% you can drink a few no problem.

O - Is it my favorite CCB beer? No. But that doesn't mean it's not great. Plus it serves as the backbone to several CCB offerings. A must try for the style for sure.

Pours a murky copper tinged brown with minimal head.

Aroma has heavy caramel malt with some extra sweetness from molassesnes. Hope this isn't a sugar bomb.

Thankfully it's a bit more balanced in the flavor. Still starts out with some sweet caramel, but near the end of the palate a little bit of bitter roast bites through to help the balance. Don't pick up much oatmeal in this at all.

A touch thin for an ale this sweet with medium-low carbonation levels.

Eh it's ok. Definitely tastes better than the smell, but very malt forward with little oatmeal character. Probably won't go back to this one.
