COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most popular brewmaster special brought back by overwhelming requests. A classic British nut brown ale. Full bodied, complex and interesting yet mild in flavor. Our interpretation of this style has distinctive hop aroma and flavor. (O.G.-1.052, IBUs 23)

Color is nut brown, as one might expect. Flavor is nutty, as one might expect. Nice creamy, malty bready flavor. Sampled at Knoxville Brewer’s Jam, 2006.

Bottle (6’er) from Harris Teeter in Belle Meade. This beer is legit, though maybe overrated. Great body, pretty sweet (like a honey brew), can’t find the nutty flavor many talk about. Great level of carbonation, which is a very important aspect to me. Good mid-level micro.

I’ve had the draught and the bottled. Definitely sweet from the beginning and a slight toasted flavor. Finish leaves a very sweet taste for a brown ale. Ok.

355ml bottle obtained in a trade with <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?U target=blank>piscator34, thanks Kris. Dull brown in colour, quickly dissipating tan coloured head, no lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet, some caramel malts, toasty, light chocolate. The flavour is highly sweet, some toffee, nutty, very light roasted malts. Creamy mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes quite sweet, lingering. Other then being too sweet for my tastes there is nothing wrong with this.

PorterPounder (5705) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Gift from Aurelius on his travels. 12 oz bottle - pours a dark copper color, light, off-white head. neutral aroma with some fresh lake water accents if you try really hard. Flavor has some toffee notes, some nuttiness and a slight touch of chocolate in the back end. Medium thick mouthfeel - but metallicizes in the end. Has potential. Had this on vacation at the beach - Cape San Blas, Fl.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. Smells like rank dry poo. Don’t ask me how I know that, but I do. It tastes like Gh-ro-ss vinegar wearing a beer disguise.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with Beer_Hawk! - Thanks Steve! - Pours brown with a short beige head that didn’t stay very long. Aroma of caramel, nuts, and a touch of brown sugar. Flavor is roasted nuts, caramel, chocolate without much hop presence. Medium bodied and creamy on the palate. Not bad.
