Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Dark brown with a fading, beige head. Lightly sweet, chocolatey, nutty, and well balanced. Very smooth, medium bodied, and finishes with a clean, malty finish.

Sampler at BBC Downtown. Nut Brown, really?Pours a clear amber with minima head. Aroma is up front with hints of malt and a little caramel but no nuts. The taste carries this malt through, but lacks the backbone of the nuttiness.

Draft to taster at BBC. Looks solid; a transparent copper with iff-white lacing. Smells and tastes malty and nutty with hints of caramel and an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Pretty good brown ale. Like the roundness and nuttiness, delicate mix of caramel, faint roast and chocolate, the stronger than expected hops are nice to but certainly don’t seem to age that well. quite well balanced otherwise. thinner with nice carbonation and very drinkable.
