Nuts in aroma and some sweetness, taste also has them nuts. Palate could be softer, a bit fizzy feel from the hops bitterness/ carbonation. Nice beer.

"Yet another style that Alesmith is at or near the top for. Nice roasted malt, cocoa nutty caramel aroma. Light, smooth body. Flavor much the same. Semi-sweet with restrained hops. Great beer for a brown ale."
