Delicious beer to have with a meal. Not too heavy and not too light. Just right with a great flavor that is subtle yet sweet and very smooth.

great anytime beer. tastes nice with a meal, chilled in the summer, or celler temp for a nice brew. had it on tap once where it tasted like a chocolate chip. bottled version pretty reliable, and i think really nice. not as sweet as the rogue one that is rated so high.

a VERY good nut brown. It has good bite, but not too much--has a mellow finish. Nice dark brown color, but the only drawback is the very small head. Either way, it tased great!

bottle. Pour is a reddish brown with little off white head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malt and roasted nuts. Smooth roasty flavor. Definite coffee, nice hazelnut flavor also. This is a very good brown, probably the best I have tasted. Nice bitterness to finish. I like this.

This is a wonderful ale. I live 30 miles from where itís made, so I can get lots of it, too!! It has a great malty aroma, and pours a nice dark color. Not heavy on the hops, though. Itís definately recommended!!

This is one of my favorites. A great taste and relatively smooth. It is a bit pricey even if you buy it in the region, but a fine Brown ale.

Bottle. Poured a nice rosy, red-tinged brown with a solid tan head of firm foam. The aroma is of milk chocolate and sugary milk. Richy and silky, this drinks damn near like choclate milk ... roasty, frothy, creamy. Hint of espresso, and maybe the cream on top of a mocha ... Otherwise, a nice drinking dark ale. Much creamier and smoother than an average American brown ale. Save for the desserts ... give me a chocolate chip cheese cake! (#3117, 9/30/2007)

Bottle from Caponeís. Fans of the Good Doctor know that next to the Imperial styles, nut brown is one of my favorites, and it seems to be getting harder and harder to come by this style these days. This one pours burnt sienna with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma is caramel/scotchy malt, wheaties, brown sugar, figs, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, and some rye/pumpernickel breads. The taste is very Wheaties-like, with brown sugar, fig, and the aforementioned nut trifecta, plus a dollop of maple syrup. This one tastes and smells a lot like Celebrator, but without quite as much palate heft and complexity.
