Hazelnut and chestnut with a backdrop of bready caramel. Just the right amount of sweetness in a lightly carbonated body with a thin head. Probably noble hops - not a lot of sharpness coming from them - per the style of beer. What works particularly well here is the subtle sweetness with the stale notes that sometimes linger in this style.

4oz on tap at Brass Tap - U Square. Nice chocolate, nuttiness up front; some maple. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Balanced finish, neither dry nor slick. Light to moderate sweet taste, nice light bitterness. No lingering sweet syrupiness. Clear brown amber color. Thin off-white head, leaving decent lace. Overall, a very solid nut brown ale. Met my high expectations for Alesmith, unlike the Robust Porter I recently tried from them (it was just OK).
