Harris Teeter’s nut brown is better than expected, combining a nice earthy malt with a soft carbonation and nutty finish. A pretty pour, Barrel Trolley nut brown sports a fluffy off-white head and clear deep brown body. A bit of coppery metallic character shows in the otherwise pleasant finish, detracting from the overall appeal of the beer.

Crystal clear brown with a white head. The aroma has caramel and bread. The flavor is similar. Quite thin.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a fair amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

dwyerpg (4654) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - OCT 12, 2012
This is surprisingly good. Has a definite hazelnut flavor but it isn’t too strong. The best of these barrel trolley beers.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Harris Teeter Crozet. Pours a clear brown color with a frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of nutty notes , brown malts and a faint herbalness. The taste is caramel malts and mild nutty and herbal notes. Medium bodied. Solid beer.

jrodooo5 (1081) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Pours a dark brown w/ a tiny white head that leaves a little bit of lacing. The aroma is dominated by the hazelnut. The taste is nutty & smooth throughout. It’s nicely balanced & has a light creamy mouthfeel. A very solid beer that’s everything you would expect from a brown. Quite nice!

PorterPounder (5712) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, sticky off-white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has some brief nutty notes, some hard candy sweetness. Flavor has a hint of caramel, a touch of nuttiness, some back end metallic notes. Mouthfeel is a tad thin and tinny. Does in a pinch.

nick76 (4258) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 24, 2012
The aroma is malty and slightly toasted with caramel, nuts, and chocolate. The appearance is light brown with a large head. The taste is like the aroma but astringent. The palate is average. Overall the only nice thing about it is the hazelnut essence the rest is crap.

Aurelius (4379) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Muted, tannic aroma. The foam smells doggy. Deep, clear ruby brown, big fluffy bone-colored head, standard US longneck, OK throwback label. Sweetish, clear gel and roast flavor. Unremarkable, but pretty clean drinking. Some tar and cherry in the finish. Medium body, slippery mouthfeel. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.
