COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Verry nutty which makes this brew a great one to drink with dinner or lunch or whatever. It is just good with food.

A great thanks to rater Wawood for sending this Wisconsin native down south.

Poured a natural tobacco leaf amber brown body and a weighty tan head. The aroma certinaly does bring nutty notes of almond, walnut, and lite suggestions of hazelnut. The flavor is lightly roasty… sweetness in the beginning & middle, then a more rounded finish with a touch of bitterness. Something reminds me of broiled butternut squash… strange, right? Nice notes of toffee, as it appears, tobacco… man… I haven’t had a filthy yet juicy wad of chew in several years and I still remember that spicy / smoky / vanilla / black pepper flavor. His truly is a nice brown ale!

Very clear and reddish brown with little head. Very sugary aroma with a hint of chocolate. Sweet and clean in flavor with some roasted caramel and hazelnut and a bit of chalkiness. Somewhat watery.

Gitchee Gumee Brewfest 2005. The aroma was bland and of plain malt. But, wow, the flavors really bowl you over. They’re simple and fairly one-dimensional, but you get a good mix of nuts, mostly domianted by roasted hazlenut (a personal favorite), so this beer spoke to me. Has a few other weakness, but pretty exceptional for a typical brown.

Gurst (338) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2005
Pours a lovely bronze brown color. Aroma is faint, but noticeably nutty and sweet. The taste is all malt, not even a trace of any hops until the very end of the aftertaste. Velvety smooth marzipan and nougat are the key flavors, with some sweet chocolate and caramel. The tastes combine to make a liquid-smooth candy bar. The body is perfect, a nice balance of chewy and smooth, with not a sign of grit or chalk to it.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2005
On tap in New Glarus. Smells spicy and nutty with sweet accents from caramel malts. Color is a deep brown/copper with a white creamy head. Taste is robust and nutty, and leaves a certain dry impression. Caramel and roasted malts highly contribute to the semi-sweet, nutty and gently spiced composure. Some toffee characteristics as undertones. Nice balance of hops and malts.
