A smooth, full-bodied nut brown ale, lightly hopped with a hint of roasted and crystal malts. This ale is dark in color without the heavy taste of porter or stout.

Nice dark brown color. Great taste. Looks like it's a flat beer, but tastes like it has just enough carbonation and alcohol content.

rich brown color, roasty, malty aroma. has a light mouthfeel and is very drinkable. it has that particular rich malt flavor that i really like, whatever it is. (similar to north coast's acme brown and/or flying fish's dubbel)i'll buy this again.

Oristo (67) - Orinda, California, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Light but sweet aroma. Hints of nuts malts. Rich tan head settling down to a thin layer with light lacings. Great deep brown color. Malty, nutty, bready flavor with just enough hops to cut the sweetness. Lovely if a little light on the tongue and quick on the finish. Good lasting back-tongue finish but little in the mouth and a fairly dry mouth-feel

Nutty, yeasty, sweet aroma. Moderately thick and full body with minor hints of blandness. Light nutty taste on the tongue and a generous nutty flavor lingers in your mouth like listerine after you swallow it. Possibly the darkest brown i've ever had. Peachy keen.

nutty metallic aroma, DARK brown, full on nuttiness with a pretty full body, a dissapointing slightly metallic finish

The bottle says "Light Brown ale". Frankly thats a load of poo. Deep chestnut color with a Loose tan head. Bready nutty nose with a little floral hoppieness. Little bit of hazelnut and walnut, bready malts with slight floralness. Mineraly soft mouthfeel and lingering delicate fresh bread, nuts, and hop flower. Wonderfull session beer.

A little thin and not really sweet enough to be a nut brown ale as they claim. Definitely tends towards the bitter and roasty side. It is supposedly lightly hopped, and indeed there's little bitterness from the hops (as opposed to the malt), but there is too much hop aroma for a brown. They should have added a little more of that crystal malt.

Surprisingly full, nice roastey, toastey barley with hints of light nuts. Very thin, watery mouthfeel but loaded with a nice nutty aroma and flavor. Decent finish as well.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2003 I tasted hazelnut...nutella. A chocolate nutty flavor with a mild thickness. I really enjoyed this brew. I over-rated it the first time.

I could smell the aroma on this puppy from 10 feet away after cracking the cap....its just screamed "i’m a porter...drink me!!!" It effervesced chocolate and nuts...something almond like...and boy was it good. The pour was a nice dark brown, but a still good looking ruby red when held up to the light. It put a very thin creamy head layer in there which just sort of sat there during the duration of my endulgence of this. The flavor is very interesting...it starts out very mildly like a porter in the mouth, and then you begin to feel that tickling of roasted malts on the sides of your tongue and the nut flavor as it progresses to the back of your tongue..very nice indeed. It ends very dry, like a stout, but probably a bit too dry and malty for my taste, but i am still none-the-less very impressed. I will make it a point to check out other Lost Coast brews.
