Amber color. The head started out nice then almost disappeared. Light body but nice cloudy/clear balance. Not much smell till after you have a drink. Then the aroma fills the nasal cavities. Not bad. Redhook makes a better Nut Brown ale.

JPDIPSO (5657) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Dark cherry wood brown color with a moderate taupe head. Initial DMS scents slowly fade to reveal some light roasted malt, hints of herbal hops and hint of coffee. Lightly sweet flavors. I somehow get a musty roasted flavor. I think I understand what they were going for, enjoy it for what it is, but I don’t think it quite works for me. An Irish red/brown. Ok. 2/10

12 oz bottle. Pours a nice hazy mahogany color. Aroma is floral hops up front with faint toasted caramel notes. Flavor is well-balanced between bitter hops and malt backside. Palate is a bit thin, but it makes it very drinkable. Overall a decent, drinkable beer. Surprised it’s a seasonal, actually.

Nitro draft pour featured at the brewery. Swirling amber color pour with the huge creamy head and lace. Aroma has light hops, and rich malt. Rich caramel malt flavor with a toasty finish. Interested in trying this on regular draft, but this nitro is very nice. Creamy, cinnamon like, spice finish. Nicely done.

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark amber color with a smallish off-white head on there that disappears quickly. Nose is pretty nutty with hints of toast to it. Taste is a little sweet and bready, with quite a bit of nuttiness coming through. OK, but just seems a bit off for me.

12oz bottle poured into an Affligem wide mouth goblet. Beer Date: " Exp: 05.14.15. This just came out recently, so maybe 4 month best by date. So, lets see we have 4 ratings in 2011, 4 in 2012, 1 n 2013, 0 in 2014... well the rating scene in Seattle is growing old. Brown colored beer, not much head. Aroma smells of industrial plastic, metallic, and bug spray. Flavor is similar. Maybe I understand why no one is rating this beer. Its close to being macro level, un-nuanced, industrial flavored waste of fermented malted beverage. Low, even for Hale’s.

Dogbrick (11498) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. Deep amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt and nuts. Light-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of sweet malt, nuts and fruit. The finish is sweet with a short nutty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Petronius (55) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 26, 2012
Pleasant nuttiness, not too sweet, A LOT of diacetyl. Very round. Had it more body, would be a great beer.

Surprisingly strong nut aroma. Flavor is decent, nutty and sweet. Palate is weak. Watery.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours clear and golden deep amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is roasted dark malty and caramelish. Mild bitterness, dark roasted malty, light nutty and mild fruity. Ends bitter and dry.
