(22oz bottle) Pillowy off-white head atop a crystal clear dark red-brown body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nut, light chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, nut, some caramel, light salt. Watery light-medium body, easy drinking.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 2, 2006
Draught at the brewpub: Dark amber, light head and lacing. Nose of light chalky malts. The flavor is rich and chewy but lacks the oomph that make any brown ale stand out. Not bad, not great.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2006 Pours a nice deep amber brown. Aromas of nuts, chocolate, and a touch of honey. Flavor has a bittersweet chocolate taste with big nut notes.

willblake (2645) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2004
22oz Bomber, 06/03. Pours bright, light, copperish brown; giant head that lasts, coating lace. Aromas of brown sugar and nuts, a bit like honey roasted cashews(?), some c-hops, light choco-malts. Sweet and roasty malt taste, a touch of honeysuckle; finishes sweet, too. I'd like a bit mjroe alcohol presence towards the end to balance out the sweetness, otherwise I really enjoy this MT brown.

Pour is a dark golden while the body is almost opaque dark brown. Huge off-white head. Tart-malty aroma that fades into roast/chocolate as the head dies. Somewhat sweet that finishes with a light-moderate bitterness and a lingering roast. This thing could pass for a porter. I enjoyed this brew.

This was a slight gusher, but maybe thats because it was frozen on its way to my house. It poured a deep amber color with a large fluffy off white head. Sweet aroma of nuts, sugar, caramel and a little bit of hops. Malty sweet taste, hardly any bitterness... this was smooth. Reminded me of a weaker version of Sam Smith's Nut Brown.

Nice roasted nut aroma with dark pour with off white head. Good roasted malt flavor that hangs a little. A little sweet, touch of molasses. Nice clean finish.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2003
smells like a squirrel's secret stash, dark brown with an off white head, medium body, dark malt flavors along with intense nuttiness, can't say I'm too much of a fan

nutty rich aroma. creamy with a big full body. reminds me of Boyne Rivers offering. minimal hops but a clean malt finish. a bit "woody"

from the beautiful bitter root valley in montana, in the shadow of the saphire range, comes a nicely packaged nut brown ale which, (thanx to yvonne), arrived here in ohio in splendid shape-- ready to be guzzled in one third the time it took to package it. ready as well to briefly dazzle a glass with the rich brown pour of a porter. under the blazing scruteny of hard light, the brown morphs to a scorched crimson under an elegant mousse the color of cattail fluff. reluctant aroma deepens with warmth, offering maple, a touch of cabernet grape, almond skin, caramel and musty old furniture. taste twists a tight curve from being momentarily sweet to becoming moderately bitter-- with toasty vanilla nut bread and dried apple flavors, quenching and amusing.
