The thinness of the beer in ma mouth lowers the rating for me, unfortunately. But it pretty! And nice lacing! And kinda nutty/caramel tasting. It’s ok for me.

The beer is a slightly hazy brown color. The head is thick and lasted a while, slow moving carbonation. The beer smells of chocolate and nuts but it isn't very overwhelming. The flavor is sweet upfront with a chocolate taste but then you do get a hint of nuts as the beer evens out. The beer is medium bodied and easy to drink.

good beer dont get me wrong. however i dont find any characteristics of the beer that compel me to buy more. especially not for the price of 5 dollars for a tall boys worth of hooch.

12oz bottle coded SC24Q1 poured into a Samuel Smith tulip pint glass at fridge temp, no ABV listed on label. The beer pours bright medium brown with ruby highlights and thick khaki head. Lacing is minimal, but the head is persistent at 3/8" (nucleated glass). The aroma is milk chocolate and nuts. The taste is tangy chocolate up front with a barely bitter nutty finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, adequately carbonated and dry in the finish. Overall, very good. I wish that Merchant du Vin would let these guys date their bottles. I was given this one or I wouldn't have had it.

There is a BOTTLE CODE on here, just put a BOTTLED/CANNED ON DATE stop with the damn codes. Soon I am going to stop purchasing your beer even if it is a high abv imperial stout if I don't see a DATE PRINTED. I lucked out it looks like I got a fresh one that is under a year old. On to the review. Amazing! I could have sworn this beer was brewed with actual nuts how nutty this freaking brown ales tastes. That gold foil on the neck certainly looks the part of class & elegance & the liquid that's on the inside most certainly tastes it too. Go out & try this beer folks. Cheers! A- (90-94)
