Pours nice. 1 finger of light frothy oatmeal colored head. Settles to a thin lace. Translucent dark brown, slightly amber when held up to light. Moderate mocha nose. Taste is fruity molasses to start with light hazelnut to finish. Decent brown ale but not exceptional.

A high quality nut brown, right on the mark for what I want. Chocolate aroma, mild roastiness on the palate, pretty creamy mouthfeel. Looks beautiful, too. Reminds me why I love the style.

Clear dark brown pour with small beige head. Aroma of malts, caramel and banana. Taste of malts, toffee, bread, caramel and a definate nutty finish. Medium carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Very good.

Good standard brown ale - style that’s hard to really love, but hard to dislike. Appearance - notably dark brown. Aromas of brown sugar, hazelnut, graham crackers, chicory. Or something like that. Sweet, but not a lot, some balancing bitterness. Dead straight middle of the road.

Beer pours chocolate brown with a thick head, but the head disappears almost entirely once it settles. Aroma is sweet and syrupy, with a chocolate and a touch of licorice sweetness. Beer tastes like chocolate with a fair amount of nuttiness (mostly cashews). In addition, this beer pairs well with cashews as well. Beer palate is medium, creamy and rather flat. The palate works well with the style. Overall this beer is tasty, but a little synthetic in flavours. Could more roasted malt flavour, but it is what it is.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2012 On tap at Caffe Barney on Main St. Not much head or nose. It purports to be a nut brown ale, but is actually much closer to a porter or stout. As such, it’s a rather pleasant one. Malts predominate. Coffee is the dominant theme. Didn’t notice any nut flavors whatsoever. Nice but not complex.

Draught. Dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma is toffee, plum with hints of banana and chocolate. Taste is hazelnut, date, burnt sugar, hint of chocolate. Medium bodied, starts sweet and nutty on the palate and then finishes with a roasty bitterness and a slightly burnt aftertaste.
