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.

Brown color. Somewhat sweet. Nutty like pecan. Another refreshing brew from flat branch.

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2003 Deep clear brown in color, has a small off-white head, nice fruity, nutty malty aroma. Mild nutty and sweet malty flavor, has a nice crisp hop bite in the finish. Somewhat of a watery and thin mouthfeel, not bad and pretty much average for the style.

On tap at the brewpub: It pours a dark brownish muddy water color with tiny head that gives way to a ring quickly. The flavor was strong of roasted malts in my opinion, nutty, caramel, and toffee.

Nice brown. Decent caramel malt flavor. My first Flat Branch beer. Impressed so far. Delicious.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Solid. Molasses, brown sugar and nice carbonation. Fruity with toffee notes. Spicy, burgandy dark and not chalky. Lacks aroma but overall my favorite from this brewer.

AbbeyRoade (306) - Missouri, USA - AUG 11, 2014
This was a decent brown ale. Slightly nutty roasty malt flavors. Nothing bold really shined through on this drink. Just average.

omnivore (270) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Pours ruddy brown with a lacy head. Malty and mildly hoppy aroma. Sweet attack that expands into a hoppy malty goodness. Sweet leave.

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.
