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.

Bottle - Rich coffee aroma with the slightest bit of alcohol. Rich opaque brown with a nice thin but persistent brown head. Roasted coffee, malts, tinge of bitterness and alcohol on the finish. The ’nut’ is lost on me but it is a nice dark beer, a little strong and more like a porter

Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, and cola. Pours a cola brown with no head or lacing. The taste is much like the nose. Roasted malts, nuts, and grain with hints of coffee and a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with a medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable and tasty beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. clear chestnut brown. clean nose of roasted nuts, grain chaff, light roast and cracked just-burnt toast. medium body, medium to heavy dryness, very clean profile - snappy toasted grains with crunchy walnuts and toasted bread. clean, enjoyable, snappy with tight carbonation and medium- hop bitterness. this is a surprisingly good brown ale given the ratings, but it may benefit on tap and suffer in the bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
