On tap. Pours with a small head, dissipates fairly quickly but maintains nice lacing. Smooth mouthfeel with nice level of carbonation - enough, but not too much. Lightly sweet and malty, but not overpowering. Roasty, but stops short of a porter or stout. A simple brown, but a good one.

Caramel brown pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of nuts and roasted malt. Sweet malt flavor with hint of toffee, nuts, and rounded out with roasted malt. Very nice.

UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 12 oz. bottle at BevMo. Nose of yeast and toast. Dark brown body with a pillowy head. Nutty, roasty and smooth with a creamy malt base. Thin body is nice and light. If it was any heavier it’d be a porter and if it got any hoppier it’d be an IPA. They deserve credit for threading a nice balance and the result is a really tasty and drinkable brown ale.

nice brown ale with flavors of caramel and a bit of gravy. watery body is refreshing enough and a hint of hop.

Frozer (149) - Illinois, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Poured from bottle to pint. No head very little carbonation. Aroma is strange, not chocolate or nutty. Flavor is great. Very smooth chocolate flavor with light nuttiness. Perfect mouthfeel for the style.

"pretty smooth, on par with Moose drool flavor-wise, but a little lighter in body, more like a Samuel Smith’s. A solid effort, but not worth going out of your way for."

Not typically a huge fan of this type of brew, but it's one of the better nut browns I've tried.

erickok (3798) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - SEP 24, 2014
Dark brown body and creamy head. Light nutty, cookie, moderate roast, smooth yet not very expressive. Perhaps good because the hops are mellow ad well and this way together it is really drinkable. Quite a thin body though and even a hint of acidity that’s not so nice. Luckily much better from the middle onwards. Surprise to food this here, but it’s not as good as I hoped for. Could be fuller and hoppier. (On tap at Berthom Tours, with Darren’s birthday party)

Masterkush7 (568) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Subtle malty aroma. Very clean with slight nuttiness. Beautiful reddish brown appearance with a lasting off white head. Very smooth creamy taste with slight nutty finish. Very enjoyable beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
