3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Opaque dark brown pour with medium-sized tan head and decent lace. I get strong caramel aromas with toasty malts and subtle nuttiness. Flavours are malt driven and sweet but not too sweet with a decent dryish hop balance and a lovely smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable as suits the style. Recommended.

Tap at déjàvu. Pours a dark brown with a tanned head. Aroma isn't inspiring - hazelnut and almond malt. Taste is way better. Gives a chewy caramel nutty bitterness. Lasts quite nicely. Very malt driven and palate is left coated with hazelnut and brown sugar. Actually really solid

Dark brown with a thin fan head. Wonderful nut aromas. Good malt flavour up front, leading into chewy nuts and a slightly hoppy bitter finish. It straddles that tightrope for well made brown ales of having a richness of flavour without a creamy palate, leaving it highly drinkable. Love a good brown and would like to see more places take them on.

Pour is a brooding dark brown. I don’t know if it is subconscious at work but it has a slight nutty smell with some spicy notes.
Flavour is great, initially i thought it was a bit thin, but is quite pleasant. A lot of flavour without being challenging to drink. Lots of malt flavours with a sweet slight plum pudding finish before a balanced bitterness comes in. Delish!

This looked great, however, it was downhill (a regular theme with this brewer) after that. Taste was OK but there was no lasting or lingering flavour.

Pours a dark brown with a medium tan head. Aroma is as expected: roasted nuts dominate the smell of the beer. The nuttiness in the taste, however, is subtle rather than overwhelming - a really nice touch. The finish is smooth and long. Overall a very drinkable and tasty beer.

500 ml bottle into a pint glass. Poured a deep brown with red highlights and a thin beige head. The blurb says nuts were used to make it and there is a distinct nutty aroma on the nose. Malt is prominent in the taste, typical of the brown/red ale style. Don’t get much in the way of nuts, but there’s a nice dry hop note at the end. Creamy on the palate, with a lingering aftertaste. A decent brown ale.
