Dark brown color with a khaki colored head. Sweet toffee and caramel malt with a touch of vanilla. Decently nutty with some earthy hops. A bit of toast and a fair amount of bread. The flavor is a bit watery. Not quite as nutty and toasty as the aroma. Bit of toffee and caramel, maybe some bread. Mild hop flavor and bitterness. Kind of bland.

here is a very nice nut brown. Pours nice brown color with good frothy tan head, nice lacing. Aroma of hazelnut, soft bark, caramel, cashew. Deliciously smooth, wouldn’t guess it was 7%, with a nice creamy, caramel, nutty flavor, and a lingering finish. Nice.

Bought from brewery poured into a pint in San diego. Looks clear auburn. Smells of some caramel and brown spices. Tastes a hell of a lot like my first all extract homebrew. Very smooth and drinkable at first with a nuttyish brown taste. It then gets heavier on the palate bringing in the hop spread. Pretty good beer overall 6.5 of 10.

Under the name Cheyenne Cañon Ale Piñon Nut Brown. Pours a deep rich brown with a woody, piney, nutty toasted malt and coffee aroma. Flavor is more piney hop, nutty coffee and some caramel malt. A combination I’m not sure I’m very fond of. A body that can be described as lighter medium. Aftertaste is mostly pine hop and stale coffee.

Thanks to Alex for this... Not getting the whole pine nut thing... Pours a watery light brown, a decent but again watery head... Nose of light vanilla, fruits... The taste is really light, but drinkable. A bit of pine, nuts, alcohol. Boring but alcohol biting finish... Pour and light mouthfeel. A confusing drink.
