This was one of the best beers I've had in a long time. A nutty, toasty aroma and appearance with a malty, thick taste and mouthfeel. The appearance was deep, dark brown with minimal head, but the taste was very refreshing and relaxing. I will definitely purchase this beer again soon. It was one of the best I've had ever, and I am looking for more beer crafted by the Shmaltz brewing co.

dark pour, not much head on top...
smell is the typical nut brown variety; nothing special, but nothing offensive or displeasing. generic.
taste is smooth and refreshing. nut brown specific, easy to drink, easy to session.
overall, if ease of drinking is a category, it's a 5. nice and easy, smooth.... very nice. taste is not especially great, but very easy to drink.

12 oz bottle pours a dark chestnut color with an ample cap of frothy tan head. Excellent retention and lacing. A pretty dang good looking brew.

Nose is a nice blend of cocoa, walnuts, caramel, hazlenuts and buttery yeast. I really like the aroma on this one, has everything you want in a brown ale. Maybe even some coffee and brown bread as it warms.

Smooth and rich for the style with ample sweetness and a sharp tannic, hop bite at the end. A well thought out recipe on this one as the flow is terrific with the yeast, malt profile and notable hop presence all play nicely together. One of the better brown ales I have had in quite some time.
