Itís awfully brown. Weak woody and mineral aroma. Thin, acidic on the palate. A few enjoyable malt notes, nutmeg and brown sugar. Not impressed, but hey, it sure is brown.

Aroma is very light. I cant really smell anything but a slight nutty chocolate and that may be my imagination. Pours beautiful dark brown with ruby highlights. Flavor is wonderful and consists of nuts, dark malt, chocolate, espresso. Light body. oily mouthfeel. quick, harsh finish. Very tasty but forgettable.

Bottle at home. Wow, one of the better brown ales Iíve had. Nice rich chocolatey brown pour with a sticky head. Nut and mild chocolate in this - not too sweet, not too dry, nice body. Well done.

From 12oz bottle to shaker. Pour is a deep copper, nice and thick tan head. Nose is malt, slight hop, nutty, faint chocolate. Taste is medium bodied, bitter with light sweet touches as well. Finishes very flavorful and smooth. Nice Nut Brown Ale here, perfect by the fire beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sweet almond and hazelnut aromas with bready character. A shallow layer of off white head tops this dark brown beer.
Medium body and malt forward balanced sweetness. Finishes with a modest bitterness and astringency from the roast malt backed with a mild hop bitterness.
Overall a balanced but bold.brown ale.

Very mild pecan nose. Clear brown, thin head. Tart initially, but transitions from raw cranberry to pecan. Grape seeds also present. A bit roo tart and fruity for a brown ale, but nutty character is evident.

Lovely crystal brown with a near complete tan sheet. Smells of nuts, cocoa, roasted malts, a hint of low impact, earthy hops and just a hint of cinnamon. Taste is bitter, slightly sweet, roasty, toasty and maybe a little astringent. Thereís something a little off in the flavor. Medium bodied with fine, velvet carb and an off dry finish. Decent.

A delicious, thick-bodied brown ale. Resembles a stout. Nice, chocolately flavor. Smooth. A great, refreshing drink!
