A beautiful deep brown hue and a nutty sweetness identify this style of ale from Northern England. Although malt and caramel flavor dominate, hops provide a medium level of bitterness at the finish.

Some nuttiness, warm malts. Not a ton of flavor. Fairly light for a brown ale. Not bad though.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 31, 2007
UPDATED: APR 14, 2007 Tap. Not much of an aroma, perhaps some malty sweetness but I like the dark Ruby Red color. The head was fairly thin and the taste is also of malts with a slightly bitter finish. A good substitute for when they occasionally run out of the state street stout.

Pours a beautiful dark brown, with a nicely creamy head. Tastes of roasted nuts blended with caramel and a note of coffee lurking about in the background. A bit light in the taste for such a dark brew, exacerbated by hoppy finish that could stand some heavier notes up front.Overall, a fairly good brew.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2006
Draught. Deep amber, frothy beige head. Eyewatering nose of sour milk and yoohoo chocolate drink. Tastes exactly the same; sour milk and mocha latte. For comparison, the sourness is of equal intensity as the infamous infected Victory V10. Medium-light body, creamy. Poisonously overbitter muddy and ashtray aftertaste coats the tongue. If any of the commercial description flavors were in there, they were completely overwhelmed by lactic sourness. Nasty!

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 16, 2006
I had the Alt before I had this donít make that mistake. This beer was a nice amber pour with light lacing. It had a sweetish maltiness with a light bitter finish. A very well balanced beer. A nice beer that was just a tad on the watery side. Overall a damn fine brew. I wish I could make one like it.

Maybe their best beer. Good malt characteristics, not overly hoppy. Brown, fair amount of head. Light/medium bodied.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 20, 2006
Chesnut-red with not much of a head. Caramel aromas with some fruitiness. Flat malty, yeasty flavor with some restrained bitternesst. Light finish. Not much nut flavor.

Tmoney99 (13590) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2005
Sampler draft at DGB. Dark brown color with moderate off-white head that diminished slowly. Moderate aroma of sweet malt. Medium body with smooth texture. Moderate sweet malt and hop flavor with short sweet finish.

NachlamSie (3294) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2006 on draught under the alias "Woodruff Brown" . Light tan/brown pour. Nutty, sugary aroma with some acidity. Thereís a sweet walnut taste and an astrigency of nut shells. Thereís a bit of breadiness throughout. This is fairly thin for a brown and not balanced too well.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2005
Draught. Brownish copper with off-white head. This is reasonable, but not as good as other nut browns.
