Poured into a large snifter glass. The beer pours clear dark brown, but turns opaque as it collects in the glass. There's a thick, creamy tan head and visible tiny bubbles rising along the side of the glass. The beer smells like a typical brown ale with dark roasted malt, nuts, chocolate, and some woodiness from the hops. I don't get any alcohol in the scent. The flavor up front is nice and roasty with chocolate and nuts. Then the bitterness lingers in the back end of the mouth. There's some nice woodiness or perhaps pecan shell sort of flavor. The mild malty sweetness is well balanced by the back end hop bitterness. The body is medium to full with moderate carbonation. The beer is slick and the alcohol provides a nice warming effect even though it is only mildly detectable in the flavor. This beer drinks pretty well for a 7.5% ABV beer. This is an excellent beer.

Opaque mahogany colored with ruddy highlights. A light brown frothy head lingers long, and remains for the duration of the glass. Aroma of roasty malt, charred bark, cocoa, raisin and root beer.
RIch flavor of darkly roasted malt, cocoa, brown sugar, espresso, and raisin. Firm bitterness from roast malt, plus some floral understated hops. Full and rich mouthfeel. Really good beer.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.
A- Pours a dark brown color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a half sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.
S- Lovely aroma that's sweet and toasty with notes of milk chocolate, hazelnut and coffee. Slightly musty with a noticeable alcohol fume.
T- Enticing flavor that reminds me of peanut brittle. Quite complex too as milk chocolate, mild anise and a coffee aftertaste all make appearances. Alcohol is there but manages to mingle with the rest of the flavors nearly perfectly resulting in high drinkability.
M- Slightly creamy with mild carbonation and quite a full body for a brown ale.
O- I can see why this is Slumbrew's highest rated beer. Very tasty and intricate for a brown ale. A higher ABV and good sweetness are also big pluses.

A: The beer is very dark brown in color—closer inspection reveals that it is clear dark red when held up to a bright light. It poured with a quarter finger high light brown head that died down, leaving patches of bubbles that covered nearly the entire surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: Much like the smell, the overall taste is very nutty and also has some hints of roasted malts. No sweetness or toasted malt flavors are perceptible.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer has to be the nuttiest brown ale I ever tried. Although the nutty flavors are very dominant, there seem to be a variety of different malts used that lends complex flavors of different nuts and makes things interesting.
