Got a 12 oz single from Oliver’s in Albany. A deep ruby brew with thin tan head. Good carbonation. Nice deep nutty aromas. Flavor is deep and malty. Lots of dark malts, some nuts. Almost porter-like with the roastiess. Chocolate and coffee notes. Well balanced. Slight fruitiness on the backside. Smooth and very quaffable, like a good brown should be.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2012 Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Smells like roasted nuts with a little bit of chocolate.
Taste is mild, slight nutty flavor.
Not too shabby. EBC has better brews though, and there are better brown ales as well, but this is worth a try.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark amber with a decent foamy beige head. Roast caramel and "nutty" aromas. Med body. Flavor is that roast caramel with dirt typical of a brown ale. There’s some definite bitter behind the malt. So it’s pretty balanced and arguably more bitter than malty. Pretty clean for a brown.

On tap at Mr. Goodbar’s. Big brown sweetness with some spice. Not necessary but I just like to have a beer here. Reddish brown colour. Medium mouthfeel, carbonation right there. Not greatly drinkable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle into mug (sampled 6/20/10). Poured a clear medium brown with a one finger short lasting head. Aroma pulled in some nice nutty notes with a hint of the hops and a little sugar in there too -- very interesting. Very smooth in the mouth and while the malt sweetness was present it wasn’t as overpowering as I thought it would be and the hops added the right amount of bite at the finish to keep this refreshing. Overall a pretty good one!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear light brown color with a medium white head. The aroma is a sweet nutty malt and fruity hop. The flavor is a nice very hoppy brown ale; sweet caramel and toasted malts, pine and bitter hops, almost like a Brown IPA (just kidding), dry and malty. Very nice. An easygoing brew.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ellicottville Nut Brown is a very clear copper ale with a foamy, waxy, bubbly khaki head that has excellent retention and lacing. It has a toasty, nutty aroma with notes of grass and flowers. It’s pretty light bodied and a little sharp. The finish is chewy. It has a light but well balanced taste, not sweet or dry. It’s toasty and nutty, just like the aroma. The finish is a little bitter with herbs and grass. The aftertaste is nutty. This is very drinkable. This would be an acceptable session ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Vivacious red/medium brown with good head retention. Aromas of chocolate malt, strawberry and chocolate icing. Flavours of chocolate, sugar and cola. A touch too sweet but overall fairly enjoyable.
