3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hearty brown color with a thin off-white head. Aromas are malty caramel, with a spicy nut smell. Like a toasted hazelnut almost. Taste is caramel forward, with more pronounced toasted nut flavor in the back, balanced by a light hop bitterness. Finish is still mostly caramel. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours crystal clear deep reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, raisin, prune, toast, toffee, molasses, brown bread, chocolate, light roast, floral, light nuttiness, and toasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark malt notes with moderate fruitiness; and good strength. Taste of caramel, raisin, toast, toffee, brown bread, chocolate, light roast, floral, light nuttiness, and toasted earthiness. Lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, chocolate, brown bread, light nuttiness, and toasted earthiness on the finish for a bit. Nice balance and complexity of dark/bready malt flavors; with a solid amount of robustness and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a nice brown ale. Good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A pleasantly enjoyable offering.

This nut brown poured a deep black colour with a nice brown, frothy head. Scents include coffee, chocolate, caramel and a little licorice. First sip was smooth and a little watery but flavourful. Flavours of licorice, coffee and roasted caramel. Finish is roasty and smooth.

Good not great nut brown ale. Aroma is suitably nutty in aroma. Taste-wise, tho, the nuttiness and maltiness are a bit weak and overpowered by the hops, leading to a somewhat unbalanced brew. B-

Tasty, very rich. The Hebrews have been waiting a long time for the true Messiah to reveal themselves. Could this be it?

Pours brown with a medium tan head that leaves decent lacing. Smells of hazelnut, and sweet malt, maybe a little caramel there too. Tastes the same as the smell but the nut flavor comes through a bit more in the taste. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with decent carbonation. Overall pretty average for a nut brown ale nothing special but drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The appearance of this beer is a dark brown with a quickly fading off-white head, and the aroma is toasted malts, nuts, and sour yeast. The taste is mildly sweet, slightly sour, and a touch umami, but the palate combines a medium body, thick and slick texture, soft carbonation, and a long yet slightly sour finish.
