(Bottle) Pours dark brown with a small nougat coloured head. The aroma holds roasted dark bread, chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits, nuts, wet stone and a whisper of earthy/spicy/floral hops. The flavour is light to medium sweet, light bitter and tiny acidic with notes of dark bread, nuts, brown sugar, molasses, mild cocoa, chocolate, dark fruits, metal and a touch of earthy/spicy/floral hops. The mouthfeel is soft, round, velvety and tiny sticky with a light carbonation. Mild roast, molasses and well balanced hops on the finish. Medium bodied.

This has a slightly sour aftertaste. It has a lot of nuttiness to it in an odd way. Dark brown pour with moderate head.

Bottle from the restaurant--scored is marked a little low since Nut Brown isn’t in my top half of favorite brews, that said, this brew is well made. Poured a deep brown with a thin tan head. Nice roasted coffee aroma. Taste was roasted malt with molasses. Nice bitter finish. I really didn’t see it as a porter myself.

Standard market, draft. Very dark, almost black. Licorice and coconut and cocoa powder all coming to the nose. Rich dark chocolate and more coconut with a bit of alcohol heat all mix together nicely. This is rich and sweet, good for dessert.

Dark pour, not really brown. Aroma is sweet with caramel. Taste is a little machine like. After taste is slightly acrid. This could have been from an old keg, but I wasn’t impressed. Not what I expected.

Dessert in a bottle YUM YUM. You can really taste the molasses! Drinks like a Stout or porter, although its a Nut Brown Ale.

First beer I have had by Flossmoor and I want more. What a nice complex brown ale. I dont know why its classified as a porter as there was very little roastyness and the color was well.... brown, but to each his own. Very nutty lightly sweet caramel flavors with a nice hoppy finish to round it out.

Very rich a roasty, a delicious sweetness from the molasses, tastes home-brewed.
