3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark mahogany body. Thin white head. The aroma is roasted walnuts and almonds. The flavor is roasted malts and English walnuts. The palate was rich and well balanced to the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep medium brown in color with amber accents. Creamy, whitish-gray rim of head. Aroma is walnuts just cracked from the shell and Nutella spread over Wonderbread. Flavor rush from the get-go; robust nuts that say 100% pecan. A little bit of caramel sweetness that reminds me of a Bite O’Honey candy bar. This is probably as good as a nut brown gets.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red body. Sweet lactose roasted coffee stout hints in here. Some sourness as well. Pretty good, a little sweet.

I was a little disapointed in this one. While it’s a good beer, I guess I just expected more. Only had one.

probably my second fav of the batch. Definately one of teh better brown ales i have ever had, probably because im not that much of a fan of this style. What chimaybabe says goes!

Beautiful pecan shade, very true to style. The buttery, nutty, smoothness really worked well on this one in particular.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is just like all Rowlands beers, lots of good, well rounded malts. The nutty profile is there, but not overwhelming. Also goes down smooth, of course.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty undistinguished brown; one of just a couple of below-average samples from Calumet, and still its better than the best from a few micros that I’ve had. On the sweet side, rather thin, little aroma.
