3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 12 oz. bottle at the Goose Island pub on Pier L, Terminal 3 at Chicago's O'Hare airport.
Clear, but very dark brown with a 3-finger khaki head and excellent lacing.
Aroma of nuts (especially hazelnuts), chocolate, roasted malt, toffee and caramel.
Taste of nuts (again, heavy on the hazelnuts), chocolate, light citrus, roasted malt, toffee and roasted coffee.
Medium body and medium carbonation.
Sweet and malty balanced nicely by the nutty flavors and light citrus hops--exactly what a nut-brown ale should be and so few achieve.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a clear dark amber, brownish beer with a fair amount of off white head on top. Aroma is very nutty, hazelnuts, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is like carbonated nutella, which is a good thing in my humble opinion. Some coffee in the middle of the flavor. Very nice and enjoyable.

Bottle from Stirchley Wines, Birmigham. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a thin off-white head. The aroma is weak malt, leading to a medium bitter flavour with a liqourice, nutty, cream caramel palate with a hint of chocolate. One of the best nut brown ales i’ve had, but not THE best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 Dark brown pour with khaki head. Big roasted notes on the aroma, nuts, toast, cocoa, slight smoke. Flavor has a burnt caramel character with an earthy malt and hop backbone. One of the better American brown ales in my opinion.
