neepsntatties (1208) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2011
On tap at Beermongers in Portland. Colour... a translucent brown with little head. Nose... some sweet hops, bits of chocolate and a wisp of crushed malted milk balls. Palate... yup! This is definitely a brown ale! Moderate CO2 and a general brown ale character with a hints of the walnuts but I was rather expecting a burst of balls (the malted kind, that is) and it doesn’t seem to be there. This MSBC offering underwhelms but it was worth a whirl.

notalush (4852) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2011
Tap at Beermongers - turbid amber - frothy head - flavors of caramel, hazelnuts, damp leaves - moderate acidity - some vanilla and toffee - a bit of chocolate - good, but not great.

AmEricanbrew (5834) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Clear brown color/ light tan head. Big nutty pecan or walnut aroma with mild milk chocolate, herbal, and medium roast malts. Medium bodied. Lightly sweet caramel, chocolate flavors with big dark roasted earthy walnut or pecan to balance--good

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 30, 2011
On tap @ MSBC. Clear brown with a dense beige head that leaves some lacing. Mild aroma bread dough, nuts, cocoa and sugar. Flavor is bready malt, rich nuttiness and light semi-sweet chocolate. Medium body with average carbonation and an oily, smooth mouth feel. Really nice nut brown, lots of bread dough and nuts. Not sure I get a lot of the whoppers, they just add a light chocolate flavor, but that could be a good thing.
