I really enjoy this beer. This is what I expect in a nut brown. This actually has a rich toffee maltiness, with all kind of nutty flavors throughout, mixed with some dry chocolate and cocoa flavors. Highly enjoyable.

Pours a very clear brownish-red with small tan head. Better carbonated than previous vintages. More hop aroma and flavor than other Nut Brown brews. Not too malty with caramel and nutty flavors. Not bad.

Draft at 5 Seasons. This beer had a small sized tan head with fine sized bubbles that quickly and completely dissipated. The body was softly carbonated and transparent with a red-brown hue. The nose was malty, caramel and lightly hoppy. The flavor was mildly hoppy with a fairly smooth and dry mouthfeel. This beer had a fair amount of lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 30. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Atlanta Georgia. Dennis, the owner, treated us royally. He kept bringing sample after sample to our table. We were given every courtesy and treated very well. Thanks to their fine staff. This brew poured a small head of off-white colored finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a excellent lace and a softly carbonated transparent medium orange brown colored body. It had a mild malt aroma and a smooth slightly tingly mouthfeel that finished with a very nice brown flavored tingle. It had a nice light brown beer flavor with mellow malty notes.
