3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, notched to show a bottle don date of April 2013, served in a snifter.
Hazy dark reddish brown body; small partial head despie a vigouous pour, and most of this is soon gone.
Aroma: about spot on for style, with a nice bit of nutty roasted grains as well as sweet malts and toffee.
Flavor: largely follows the aroma, but is a bit sweeter than expected.
Feel: light body is a bit too thin. Smooth.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
