2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark lean copper brown pour with one finger of tan head. Nose is odd, very rustic and grainy with some bready sweetness and caramel notes. Kind of watery and weird/grainy in the flavor. Very earthy and rustic bready/toasted grain malt profile. Very light bodied and lean.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance- good looking, dark brown, opaque. Thin (weak) root beer colored head, disappeared fairly quick.
Smell- malt, spice, chocolate.
Taste- a little hop, bitter, gingerbread cookie.
Mouthfeel- light to medium. Thin. Warm bourbon barrel kind of feel.
Overall- a very solid, good beer. Recommendable. I’ve always been a fan of Sam Smith’s Nut Brown Ale, and I think this is better.
