3.64/5 rDev -5.5%
Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a deep, vibrant, amber-nut brown coloring with a tall, frothy, dense, bubbly, off-white head. Aromas of rich sweetness, roasted nut highlights, toffee, and earthy notes. Flavors of roast and tangy sweet forward, with toffee notes, roasted nutty highlights, cream highlights, and some chocolate notes. Pretty layered on the palate. Lighter bodied, but smooth, providing a crisp finish to a beer that is almost velvety and light in mouth. The aftertaste is more of the tangy sweet, with caramel and toffee blending together. Very flavorful and tasty beer.

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.

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.
