Hands down the best Nut Brown Ale I’ve ever tried. Sick and tired of "nut" ales that are flavorless and watered down. This ale has flavors of amaretto, almond, roasted pecan, caramel, and chocolate. Also smooth as can be. On draft at the Full Sail Brewery in Hood River, OR. Nice 4 oz sample. I brought a bottle home all the way to Tampa!

Headbanger (3765) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2008
22oz bottle-A dark brown body with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, toffee, alcohol, and a little roasted malt. Taste of nothing until the back end which kicks up some roasted malt. A very thin beer with not much flavor. Was expecting a lot more.

22 oz bottle in pint glass. Pours a dark brown, wtih a thin ivory head. No lacing. Aroma of chocolate. Flavor is almost Imperial Stout in nature...high malt, chocolate, and alcohol...some nuttiness as well. Trust me, this one has far more alcohol in the flavor than the ABV would suggest. Palate is spritzy on the toungue, and finishes a bit watery. Palate becomes progressively smoother as it warms. Overall an interesting Brown Ale, but I’m not sure its one of my favs.

ChainGangGuy (4721) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clearish, dark brown body with a small, thin, ivory-colored head. Smell: Malty, chocolatey nose with slightly lesser notes of caramel and roasted nut husks. Taste: Dry, nutty flavor with a bit of chocolate and a light caramel sweetness. Mild spicy hops and bitterness. Nuts all the while. Obligatory nutty, relatively smooth finish with a final taste of chocolate. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A fine, respectable brown ale. Better than most, even!

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 14, 2008
Pours deep brown, brilliantly clear, large, lasting, off-white head. Aroma is rich roasty malt. More rich roasted malts dance on the tongue. Body is medium. No bitterness or hops detected which is fine. Nicely crafted.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Bottle... Clear, dark brown ale with a large, frothy, khaki head. Small, creamy, everlasting retention. When held up to light, copper/ruby hues are revealed. Rich, hearty aroma provides chocolate, tropical nuts and a hint of vanilla. Full-bodied with a whole-milk mouthfeel and lazy carbonation. Nutty, malty, chocolaty flavor with a whisper of coffee. Medium sweetness, modest bitterness and light acidity. Finishes well-roasted, balanced and lightly tangy.

MakeItDrinkIt (66) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Deep dark mahogany color with a thin light-brown head. Aroma is coffee and roasty grains, a touch of chocolate. Flavor is like starbuck’s coffee beans - a bit astringent from the over roasting. This beer is also a touch nutty, and not sweet at all. Finish is a bit of lingering dry astringent-ness...

douglas88 (8090) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Bomber bought at the Utah State Store. Pours a dark brown body with a thick and creamy beige head. The aroma is mostly coffee and rich malts. The taste was full of caramel, roasted malt, some sweet coffee and fruit, a touch of tobacco and some nutty flavors. Very nice. Easy to drink and smooth as hell, yet flavorful.

I really enjoyed this brown. Aroma generic brown maltiness, & molasses. Mouthfeel superbly smooth. Flavor quite three-dimensional, with a long earthy middle. I enjoyed.

snoot (286) - Anaheim, California, USA - JUL 3, 2008
Pours dark brown. Thick off white head with thin lacing. Toasted malt and a hard water aroma (reminded me a Sam Smith.) Decent enough flavor, sweet at first, but there is no finish to the beer. It just disappears off the tongue, leaving a very slight nutty aftertaste.
