pours a rich dark brown color with minimal tan head. Aroma is leather and chocolate. Taste is dark malt yet not overly sweet offset by a bit of spicy hops. It then turns chocolate as the taste lingers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy and hazy mahogany color. Not much head formation even after an aggressive pour, but has good carbonation.
Mostly malty aromatics with some chocolate powder.
Simple tasting nutty and malty and a bit dry on the palette.
Plain jane beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 12 oz bottle, 5/17/12
Aroma: This one has a sweet nose of caramel, nuts, dark malts, roast, and coffee
Appearance: It has a mahogany-brown pour with a small-mid sized light brown head and spotty lace
Flavor: It tastes of sweet malts and roasted malts, lightly bitter coffee and earthy flavors show up later
Palate: The body is fairly light for the style, but not particularly watery, and it has a slightly acidic finish
I have no idea where this one came from, but thank you to whomever left it in my fridge! This one is a pretty solid offering. It has some nice nut brown-like components to it, and overall it drank pretty decently. It may not be a top-of-style offering, but I have no major complaints either.

Dark brown pour, opaque with brown edges, not much head, watery/sticky mouth feel, malty sweet aroma. Not bad, but not as satisfying as other nuts I’ve had.

Weird face on the label. IT is a fruitier example than most but with a lot of darker malts. It is okay, average.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours brown/ruby with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma strong of nuts, caramel, and lightly roasted malts plus some light floral hops. The flavor is a good blend but there is something that doesn’t mix well. Average texture. A pretty good brown ale.
