Cloudy brown pour with a thin offwhite head. Good aroma and flavor of nuts, caramel and chocolste. The body is light and the carbonation is gentle. I’m not fond of brown ales but this one is really good.

TaktikMTL (5628) - Montréal-Nord, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2007
En fût. Verre de 12 oz à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur d’houblons fruités. Apparence: La couleur est brune avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col crémeux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’houblons fruités sans vraiment de présence de noix. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture crémeuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. (Rating #1148)

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 16, 2007
Clear brown body topped by a long-lasting medium beige head. Shy aroma hints on a generous maltiness and citrusy hops. Smooth pillowy body with lots of cake malts and medium fruity notes. Malt-wise it doesn’t taste very nutty. More like a cross between basic brown cake and a fruity cake. Maybe even a little vinous with its fruity notes. The beer also proposes a generous amount of juicy citrusy hops but I don’t think it meshes well with the brown-cake malt profile. Mild-medium juicy bitterness. Decent beer although for a Nut Brown Ale it sure wasn’t very nutty. For a Cheval Blanc beer this is just average. I won’t make a big detour to have it again. Although it would be fair to specify that I live next to this brewpub.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Draught pint, as "Nut Brown Ale", at the brewpub on June 15 2007 after MartinT’s birthday party. Dark chocolaty-brown with little head....decent, if light and somewhat unobtrusive caramel/nutty aroma, quite fresh....light, fairly dry on the tongue, smooth with just a touch of dry bitter hops at the finish...decent, highly quaffable but also forgettable example.

Quevillon (2448) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 14, 2007
Bu sur place, sous le nom de "Nut Brown Ale" (12 oz).Brune acajoux, petit collet beige pale. Arome de malte un peu caramelisé, avec une forte présance de noisette. Petit goût de noisette avec quelque fruits sûrettes, pas si malté que ça.

rederic (2896) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2006
Deep dark brown color, with some reddish highlights, and a tan-colored head, bready malt, rich sweet dark caramel malt in the nose, with a nice nutty and toffeeish aromas. Full-bodied with a good nutty character of brazilian nuts, dark caramelized malt, a chocolatey hint, balanced by a floral hops accent, leading towards a nutty note and a lingering hops bittering finish.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 4, 2005
Nutty, spicy, red berries and sweet malts in the nose with very apparent yeast. Hazy, almost opaque, muddy brown with a decent and lasting cover of off-white head that leaves some nice lacing as it recedes. Assertive bitterness up front is chased by light, vinous, fruity tones and cereal malts before re-establishing itself in the aftertaste. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation that is engaging on the tongue. On tap at the brewpub with Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Couleur pomme brune parsemée d’une mousse blanche concassée laissant pleins de beaux cercles partout sur le verre. Arômes définitivement noisette mais aussi de fruits rouges, petites baies des champs très mures amenant presque un coté vineux. Corps d’épaisseur moyenne, amené par une décente quantité de malt venant supporter les flaveurs de fruits en bouche. Une quantité surprenante de houblon plutôt amerrissant arrive en bouche. Légère acidité en finale. Bien fait et agréable à boire!

Rastacouere (6119) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2005
Medium brown, cloudy. The off-white head creates nice traces on the glass upon every sip. Fruity yet dry. Berries and hazelnut aromas. Apparently crisp right from the nose, slightly earthy and very well balanced. Earthy malt comes out a bit drier than I’d wish being on the verge of chalky in mouth. Light-medium body, crisp texture. Pretty good.
