COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This fun little number is a gorgeous dark amber brown ale that is both lightly sweet and toasty in flavor, but with a tease of fresh hops on the nose.

Cybercat (4986) - Georgia, USA - JUN 1, 2016
Can. Pours clear caramel with a thick, though somewhat effervescent, buff head. Aroma features caramel and toasted malt notes, not much but still inviting. Flavor delivers more, caramel and toasted malt plus brown sugar, woody hop and subtle earthy tones. Body is thin and fizz lacking, but it goes down nicely and leaves a malty and caramel finish. Go nutty!

DiarmaidBHK (4151) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2016
Can from Tasty Asheville. Pours dark brown with a thin khaki head. not a lot on the nose. Fairly dry on the tongue with a whisper of nutiness. Finishes clean. Not my favorite interpretation of the style.

Suttree (6011) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 31, 2015

ChainGangGuy (4755) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 20, 2015
16 ounce can - $3.50 at Tasty Beverage Co. in Asheville, North Carolina.

Appearance: Pours a hazed medium-to-dark brown body with a smallish, thin, ecru head. Lightly laced on the descent.

Smell: Softly sweet-smelling nose of moistened malted barley grains with a toasty bent to ’em, a little fruitiness akin to strawberry, with the hops registering as a bit subtle and subdued.

Taste: A taste of toasted breadcrust and biscuit with some crumbled brown sugar cookies and a bit of nutty-tasting caramel candy. Moderate sweetness. A firm vein of fruitiness running throughout. Leafy, herbal hops impart some bitterness, though it remains predominately sweet. Finishes malty (nutty) and still rather fruity with some lingering sweetness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A sweet-leaning brown that, like its moniker, is a bit nutty.
