750mL bottle poured into a snifter. Thanks for sharing Matt!

(A)- Pours a deep burnt sienna brown color. Some tan froth.

(S)- A nice richness meets and underlying nutty profile. Some subtle vanilla-like sweetness.

(T)- Quite similar to the smell. A nice nuttiness meets an underlying subtle vanilla sweetness.

(M)- A good carbonation level meets a smooth yet mildly sweet nuttiness overall.

(O)- An interesting take on the style. The walnuts really kind of take over the overall profile of the beer and adds that extra layer to the dunkel. Just a shame that I would like to see the beer's base come through more which would help this remind me closer to a dunkel than it is; more brown ale-like to me.

A - Pours a dark red mahogany body with a fizzy khaki head.

S - Roasted malts, slight sweetness and I'm picking up some walnuts as well.

T - Dark fruits, walnuts, earthiness, vanilla, molasses and the ending has a tartness to it.

M - Light bodied, not a thick beer, medium carbonation. Has somewhat wet/dry finish.

O - Nice seasonal... Should have came out when the leaves are falling on the trees.

look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Brown and murky. Thin collar after a small head settles.

Smell - Oh dear. Smells like paint and walnuts. A bit of acidity.

Taste - Very nutty. The paint aroma now comes off as a chemical mushroom flavor. It's kinda gross.

Mouthfeel - There's a very slight tartness that accompanies the weird off flavors. Medium body.

Overall - Bad. No one else thinks this is bad, but it's bad.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Bottled 2/13

Pours a super-effervescent brown/chestnut with 3 fingers+ of tan head. Faint traces of lacing & head retention

S: Nuttty. brown bread & a faint whiff of sourness

T: Figs, brown bread & a bit of pear & walnut up front. Dryness, faint hints of sourness, tartness & a bit of choke cherry, plus pear & apricot & more brown bread as this warms. Finishes fruity, with figgy sweetness & a touch of brown bread & dryness & some walnut

MF: Medium bodied with lively carbonation

Seems a bit off for the style, drinkable enough, but flawed. I will have to keep an eye on freshness dates with this brewery from here on, this 6 month old beer has not held up me thinks... I liked Piney River's take on this better by quite a bit
