vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2010
Sampled on draft at the brewpub - Pours reddish brown with a dense tan head. The aroma has very toasted malt with lots of nuttiness. It has a medium smooth velvety body with semi-sharp carbonation. The taste has the malt and nuttiness of the aroma with a bit more sweetness that seems like honey. The finish has some spicy hops and a bit of a roasted taste. Nice brown ale.

Dogbrick (8240) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a dark amber-brown color with a thin and creamy beige head that recedes slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, nuts and brown sugar. Medium, smooth body with flavors of malt, treacle and roasted nuts. The finish is malty with a short nutty aftertaste. Above average all around.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Tasted 9/7/08. Draft from the brewpub. Filtered with a dark amber hue. Good malt roast with a smooth finish. Fudgy and nutty. Went great with the meatloaf I had for dinner!

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 30, 2008
I love this beer, its great in its simplicity. A solid brown ale that verges on being a nut brown. Has a great nutty and sweet toffee and caramel nose, with a bit of chocolate on the palate. Not too heavy, with a nice balance of flavors and a bit of bitterness comthing through in the finish.

topherh (1911) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a deep brown with a beige head. Aroma of sweet malts. Flavor is nutty and a little sweet with a slightly bitter finish.

DrnkMcDermott (2810) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2007
Draft sampler, 4 Aug. 07. Almost Porterish in color, though holding it to the light shows its brown edges. But, in fact, it actually tastes like what a lot of big brewers try to pass off as porters. A bit of toffee flavor, sticky with some smoky sweetness, and just a note of fruitiness. Could actually be my favorite beer here, just because it pushes the edge of its intended style.

Burrobuns (83) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2007
Nice dark color with very thin head and almost oily looking once the head fades. Taste had the raisin flavor that is used in a lot of the dark/sweeter flat branch beer (one that I do not enjoy). Tasted malt and a little toffee flavor too, but no real nutty flavor. I was disappointed, but still a decent beer.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Very brown, with a ruby tint. Mild chocolat and roast aromas. Dry, chalky on the palate, with some chocolate, and maybe some spices, like cinnamon. Also a molasses component? A little on the thin side.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2006
Rich and chewy, a really decent nutty brown ale. Nuts and toffee are predominant, with just a hint of hoppiness in the aftertaste. Has also a bit of a graham cracker crust kind of maltiness. Enjoyable!
