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.

Ferris (12890) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
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

Beerenberger (1601) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2013
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.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
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.

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.

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"
