3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a medium chestnut color with a quickly fading 1/4 inch head. Smell is of peanuts and malt with a citrisy undertone. An understated nutty flavor with a hint of brown-sugar that finishes with orange peel. A nice, easy-drinking beer that calls out for another.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thanks to GV for the bottle!
Appears a glowing brown with a 1 finger off white head that fades quickly. Tiny scatters of lace.
Smell is of roasty nuts, light hops, & slightly sour malt.
Taste is of the same aromas.
Mouthfeel is creamy sweet and sour with an odd sour note that seems to linger at the end.

bottle-pours mahogony amber with a small off-white head. quite a bit of hops for a brown in the aroma with lots of peanut and almond notes. lightly phenolic fro some reason. lots of nuts on the flavors wtih a touch of spicy hops. fairly bitter for a brown ale. carbonation is proper and the body isnít as thin as most of this genre. I would say one of the better brown ales out there.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bright copper pour with a small skim of light tan head that mostly fades away. Clean, lightly toasty carmel aroma, earthy mild hops, just a hint of butterscotch; simple, but rather nice. Nice nutty carmal flavors. Not overly sweet, though there is a bit of sweetness in the finish. Clean palate. Apart from their mind-blowing fruit beers, one of my favorites from New Glarus, and the nicest American-made brown Iíve tasted. Understated, but full flavored and well balanced. Iím wishing I picked up a six of this, instead of just a single. Ah well. Next time I get to WI.

Unusually huge head for the style. Hazelnut undertones...a nice change. Generally a pretty good brown...but that might be damning with faint praise!

I have tried a number of nutty beers but this one tops them all! If this is on tap at a bar or restaruant, I always ask for it! I love it served real cold (which I typically donít like) and in a tall glass! Give me more please!

From the bottle this pours a light & clear nutty brown with a short white head. Itís got a roasted barley smell with some nuts and some earthy hopping. Medium-to-light bodied, it has a sweet caramel flavor with some roasted malt, nuts, and a light hop bitterness. Not earth-shaking, but a decent enough drink.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2010 On tap at the Hotel Trempleau. Brown with a white head. Strong toasted nut aroma and flavor. Rich, sweet, and strong. Color is the darkest edge of amber to brown. UPDATE 11/29/10: In the bottle. color seems more of a reddish amber than I last remember. Strong nuttiness continues. A finishing mild bittering palate. Lots more sweetness to this. Almost a lactose sweetness. Big hazelnut at warming. Not a thick beer, but the huge sweetness deters you from wanting more than one.
