A dark beer drinkerís dream. Dark in color and deceivingly mild malty flavor and palate. Brewed with traditional British Fuggles hops for a discerning bitter flavor and aroma.

Got a 12 oz single from Oliverís 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.

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. Thereís some definite bitter behind the malt. So itís pretty balanced and arguably more bitter than malty. Pretty clean for a brown.

On tap at Mr. Goodbarís. 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.

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 wasnít 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!

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.

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. Itís pretty light bodied and a little sharp. The finish is chewy. It has a light but well balanced taste, not sweet or dry. Itís 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.

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.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear reddish amber with a thin tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. There is no aroma at all to speak of save a few wisps of musty malt. The flavor is malt up front followed by some moderate dryness and mild bitterness. Thankfully, none of the mustiness in the aroma is present in the flavor. Medium bodied. Underwhelming.
