Poured from a bottle into a chilled pint glass with a minimum amount of head, which dissipated rather quickly. Nice warm brown color, but a lighter brown. The smell of roasted nut with a hint of sweetness on the nose. Medium bodied feel in the mouth. Nice smooth malty flavor, with a bit of a lingering aftertaste. Very nice brown ale in my opinion. Been looking for a nice solid brown to be a 'mainstay' in the bar. This is a keeper.

Sampling right now on 3/28/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute fgass.

Pours a dark reddish-brown in color with a very thin off-white head. Spotty lacing is seen with each sip that clings to the glass. The aroma is of roasted malts for the most part. The taste is the same with the malts up front with a slight nutty (hazelnut & almond) finish. Very slight dry finish as well. Overall, it was OK.

Huge, creamy over-sized head erupts from my stein with the pour, loose crown of bubbles on a thick, two-finger base of tiny bubbled foam. Disappearing it leaves a lovely love down the glass. The color is a deep, beautfiul dark amber brown hue. Incredibly rich looks, superb. In the glass, the nose first gives off a strong grassy aroma, then underneath you find a softly sweet nutty brown base, hints of (good) dustiness and Swirling interesting aromas fill the glass, keep me on my toes. Quite unique and enjoyable. Taste is equally excitingly tasty; sweet malty tastes,crisp perfectly-bittered hop traits, creaminess and a slightly nutty finish. Very good, really scratches my brown ale itch. Buster has a slighty bigger than medium feel, covers the palette nicely and delivers it's great flavors all over my mouth.

Wow, blown away by this beer! Ska really hit this one out of the park on all counts; looks, tastes, style-wise. Very tasty brew here.
