On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. I’m disappointed. This only slightly nutty and actually quite watery to me. If I get a shot at a full pint I will try to give this lady another try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brown Ale’s are typically not my style of beer, but this was one of my favorites behind Rogue’s Brown Nectar Ale.
Appearance is a typical dark brown color with nice carbonation.
Aroma- Smell of toffee and caramel malts with a slight nuttiness.
Taste- Like the aroma. I get roasted and caramel malts typical of a brown ale. Medium body and a nice bitterness at the end of the palate.
Overall a nice sessional brown ale. I give it a B. Not outstanding, but nowhere near being terrible. It’s worth checking out.

Mahogany body with a ring of head. Thin brown malt aromatic nuances waft off the glance and are spiced with a pinch of walnut. Medium to thin bodied. Walnut and brown malt flavors dominate. Dry, beery underpinning with nut bitterness throughout. Sweet candi malt on the finish.

On tap at Closed for Business. Pours a dark brown with a thin light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, sweet hazlenut, sweet malt. Flavor of roasted malt, light coffee/hazelnut notes, chocolate, sweet finish. Pretty decent brown, slightly more complex than your average example of the style. On the roastier side, almost a light porter.
