3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark, coppery-brown, with small head. Strong aroma of nuts and malt. Flavor is very nutty--the hazelnuts are especially apparent. There’s a smooth, sweet underlying maltiness and a rather bitter finish. Quite good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a mahogany brown with a thin tan head. Nose is malt and honey. Nice and creamy on the palate. The taste is primarily of sweet malt, with some caramel and a hint of cinnamon. Sweet, no bitterness, akin to a dopplebock. A well done and enjoyable beer. Pairs well with smoked turkey sandwiches and chips.

Bottle in KC thanks to Justin. Pours a clear dark reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Nutty, cola, caramel, earthy, kind of strange aroma. Bready, paper, nutty, bland caramel, nutty flavor. Not a big fan.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Amberish ruby-red, filtered body. Thin, oily beige head. Sweet, mild aroma. On the fuller side of medium bodied, this is a pretty well done Brown Ale. There is certainly a nice nutty depth, but it is incorporated right into the sweet malt tones. A really worthwhile beer to seek out for Nut Brown enthusiasts.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a whole lot going on in the aroma. Smell is very malty with a hint of nuttiness. Taste is on the sweeter side but has a nuttiness to it as well. I typically prefer a more roasty brown ale than this one. Overall, just okay, can’t see myself drinking this one again.
