3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Draft at brewpub - the most popular house brew according to the bartender. Pours a rich chestnut brown with a large beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, nuts, and toffee. Flavor remains solid of maltiness, light roast, nuttiness, and light florals. Pretty darn good; I can see why the locals are hooked on this one. Re-rate notes from 3/23/09: Way more sweet than I remembered. Tons of sweet fruity and malty tones. Toffee and caramel. Light nuttiness. Loses a bit here...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draught at the brewpub restraunt in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Pours a dark cola caramel color brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind a thin ring. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, with scents of bubblegum, candi sugar, roasted nuts and flowery hops. Taste is medium bodied, very light carbonation, with toasted smoked caramel malt and some light flowery flavors. Finish is smooth and semi-dry with a smoked and toasted nut aftertaste. A terrific brown ale and please pass the roasted peanuts.

A very drinkable, enjoyable nut brown ale. Not a session ale but worth repeating.

Dark brown, small foamy head. Hazelnuts! Light flowery hops and roasted malts. Flavors are pretty much the same except for less hops and more roast. Goody body and a nutty finish.
