COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

excellent beer, very smooth, soothing aroma. I recomend this beer for anyone who loves dark beer. "Uncle Nuts" nut brown ale resembles the taste of Guiness Draught or Murphy’s Draught.

This is my fave Brown Ale. Not overwelming hoppy taste. Very easy to drink

Thanks to emacgee. Now this is what a brown ale should strive for! The aroma on this beer was awesome, so fresh smelling. Very dark pour with minimal head. The taste was that of the smoothest dark beer I have ever tried. A nice mix of roasted malt with a touch of caramel make this a top notch brew.

I’m not usually a brown ale fan, but this is awesome. Great chocolatey notes to this one and is remarkably smooth. A very easy drink and lighter than I would have thought.

Toasty, malty, sweet flavor with a hint of bitterness. Good. Would try it again.

Bottle consumed with Carolina BBQ at the Charlotte airport. This is actually a damn fine brown ale. Smooth malty notes with brown sugar, nuts, and earthy sub-tones. Above average mouthfeel and body.....

What a great little brown this one turned out to be..... This one could almost be classified as a porter.... Much, much darker than other browns.... Aroma of roasted malt and quite a bit of chocolate.... Very surprising taste of sweet roasted malts and a definite chocolate/cocoa finish that sets this one apart from most browns to me.... Great little beer from North Carolina.... What a treat...

poured into glass from 12oz bottle, deep brownish red color with beige head, aroma very sweet like caramel or brown sugar, the taste was similar with a roasted, toffee-like flavor, very drinkable

Not too sweet and plenty bitter: I would call this a porter over a brown ale. Malt profile leans toward well-roasted. I believe the featured hops is Chinook: smokey, piney, a little minty. Chinook and chocolate malt is one of my favorite combinations in a porter, but to critique it stylistically it didn’t have what I look for in a brown ale in terms of malt/hops balance, sweetness, and supporting nut/toffee/toasty flavors in the grist.

Good brown ale with a nutty and somewhat hoppy taste. Very dark brown in color with a tan head....very sweet. Not a huge fan of nut browns but this was drinkable.
