Nice lacing, dark brown in color. Looks like a nut brown, smells like a nut brown, but tastes both nutty and chocolaty. Not really like any other nut browns I’ve had. Very nice with a chocolaty aftertaste.

Dark brown, no head. Aroma is malty, nutty, though too subdued. Flavour is nicely roasted and slightly bitter. Not bad, though much is missing here. Draught.

Clear dark brown body, with a thin head and some nice lacing. Smells of roasted malts, with some hazelnut nuttiness and dark fruits. The taste kicks off with an awesome combination of roastiness and sweetness. Some pronounced hazelnut notes. Medium-bodied and exceptionally smooth. Highly drinkable. This is one of the best nut brown ales I’ve ever had and is virtually as good as the original from Samuel Smith’s, which I recently had, and it’s still fresh in my memory. The fact that many people rated this much lower makes me wonder if I just tried it from a very good batch, though...

Dark brown ale with a hoppy taste. Best of the Brutopia brews in my opinion.

From tap at brewery. Nice brown color. Main body flavor of tomato passata, notes of copper pennies and stale bruschetta. Overall would pair well with a bowl of bolognese. Keith and Tchad approve, slightly!
