This dark brown ale is slightly sweet with a caramel and dark fruit finish. A show case of fine English malts, floor malted the old way. We use pale, chocolate, and crystal malts to produce a complex, but easy drinking dark ale. Very reminescent of northern English ales.

Aroma is slightly fruity but not very strong. Flavor is watery and bland with just a hint of roasted malt. I can’t really taste any hops at all. Overall a boring beer but I gave it an extra point because it can be used as a marinade for grilled meats.

I thought that this brown ale was very good. It was heavy but not too malty. The better of the beers in their sampler.

A decent brown ale. A bit strong for style and definitely undercarbonated (as are all this brewery’s beers). Good balance though.

Pours a nice dark brown but the head disappears quickly. Has a fruity almost licorice nose but it is very light. The flavor and palate are light yet somewhat satisfying. I have had worse.

Bottle: Courtesy of BlueDevil0206 via trade. Aroma is very malty with a strong presence of chocolate and caramel. Pours a deep reddish-brown with some transparency and an insignificant white head. Not much in the flavor up front, just a hint of chocolate. Most of the flavor comes in the finish which is caramel, roastiness, and nuttiness. A little watery and thin on the palate. Decent for a brown ale considering I’m not a fan of the style.

Cute name. Cute story. Bad beer. This stuff is boring- watered down, bland and not that exciting in any way, shape or form. If anything, this beer could be sweeter. If you want a good nut beer, Rogue is the only way to go.

This nut brown pours just that, a dark brown with a head that is light brown and creamy. First sniff I found alot of spice. Cloves and a little chocolate? First sip had traces of coffee and alot of roasted malts. The finish was smooth and the spices really come through. The palate was very good. The nut and spice flavour lingered with a slight bitterness. I can’t understand the rating of only 37?! This is much better than that.

Suttree (5407) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Clear brown, with a hint of redKind of a standard malty aroma, with a slight nutty note (maybe not and I just think there is because of the name. I can be kinda suggestable like that). Certainly not bad in any way, but a bit boring. Sampled at the 2005 Asheville Brewer’s Jam.

Clear brown pour with an off white, disappearing head. Aromas of caramel and roated malt. Thin feeling, but not watery. Flavors dominated by malty sweetness, which extends into the finish. Although not cloying, I think it could use just a tad more bitter hops to dry out the finish a little.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Draught. Clear brown color with thin head. Not much nose, maybe a bit of caramel. Brown sugar and molasses come out in the flavor, but the beer is only slightly sweet. Body was a bit thin, much lighter than I had expected.
