"poured light for a brown ale. mahogony. smelled of pleasant sweet malt and nuts. nice malt profile in the nose and flavor. clean hazelnut flavor. not as "stand up and take notice" as say, a Rogue Hazelnut brown, but above average with a smooth finish."

Thanks to HisBoyElroy on the split. This beer pours a very dark red color with minimal head. It has a fresh light hop aroma. Not a whole ton of flavor. A bit of a copper hop note with a refreshing quenching flavor. A slight amber flavor. Average beer here to me yet unique.

12 oz bottle: Pours chestnut brown with a nice tan head and ample CO2 release. Aroma of nutty toasted malts with a hint of cheap American lager that kills the warm nuttyness. Taste is good roasted malts, nothing too fancy or overpowering. Palate is a little harsh but ultimately goes down smooth. Pretty good overall.

Pours a clear, copper color, with a generous, tan head that faded fast. Sparse lacing. The nose is toasted grain and caramel, malt, and notes of nuts and a mild hop bite. The flavor is mildly sweet. Medium bodied brew with lively carbonation. Very nice!

I am a huge fan of this brewery, but this style is just not my thing. Not much of an aroma, brown in color, with not much of a head on the pour. Hints of coffee (which I don’t drink) and hazelnut. Very earthy flavor. Love the brewer, not the style.

Nuts, caramel, and toffee dominate the aroma on this brown ale. All follow onto the palate. Finishes with an interesting earthy nutty flavor.

While visiting Wisconsin I found New Glarus Fat Squirrel. I found it to be one of the best craft brewed beers I have tasted. Too bad it is only sold in Wisconsin.
