22 oz bottle, 2014 vintage, served in a wine glass.

Pours with a very durable tan head that leaves excetional lacing. The body is very dark red-brown, clear but almost opaque.

Aroma: the weak point. Nutty malts with some faint off odors.

Flavor: Moderate strength nutty flavor with dark grains and a impression of dark bread. Good, lingering malty aftertaste.

O: a decent nut brown but the weakest offering I've had from this fine brewery.

Appearance is brown with copper edges and a finger of fluffy beige head that stuck around for eternity and left thick lacing behind. The nose is nutty and bready. The flavor follows the nose but it is not as bold as the very best beers of this style. The body is not quite hearty but not thin either. The finish was very mildly dry and bitter.

Dark walnut with a very nice creamy head on the surface. Smells nutty, as the name would suggest. Toasted malt, grainy chocolate, toffee, and leather - all with a charred edge. Flavor is similarly malty, but with more of an earthy hop presence. Dark chocolaty malt, nutty coffee, and just a bit of fruit to brighten things up. Not rich - more bittersweet, and clean. Medium-light bodied, slightly creamy, and quite drinkable. I like it...

Dark brown, reddish glow where the light hits, and small head but nice lacing. Aroma is cocoa, roasted coffee, hazelnut, creamy toffee, slightly flowery, faint bit of lemon, soap, and other nut varieties. Nice basic nut brown aromas with a little extra character of its own. Taste is lightly sweet with chewy biscuit caramelly malt, grains, soft bitterness, and flavors of malty bread, nuts, and again coffee and cocoa. Nicely done for this style of beer which I find I don't regularly crave. Very easy drinking which makes it appropriate all year long.
