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.

This is surprisingly good. Has a definite hazelnut flavor but it isn’t too strong. The best of these barrel trolley beers.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
