COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
100% Wisconsin malt of six different varieties impart the natural toasted color to the bottle conditioned unfiltered ale. Clean hazelnut notes result from these carefully chosen barley malts. Hops from Slovenia, Bavaria and the Pacific Northwest give Fat Squirrel its backbone.

Wow, thats pretty good. Darker hazy amber in colour with a thin long lasting white head that leaves great lacing. The nose is very malty and sweet. The taste is just fantastic with lots of sweet malty and caramel taste just good. kind of reminds me of an imperial stout flavour, but not really.

medium head, dark amber color, sweet malty nutty aroma, caramel and lightly smokey palate (very pleasant), clean lingering finish with a lot of character. Excellent brew.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2004
Pours a fairly light brown color with no real head. Aroma and taste are both of caramel and walnuts with a healthy dose of malt. Not what I was expecting at all from a brown ale, my opinion of the style being based on Newcastle, but I was very pleasantly surprised.

boto (1826) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAR 25, 2004
12oz. bottle: This beer pours a fairly clear amber color with an off-white head. It didn't linger for long. The aroma is caramel malty with some roastiness. A bit nutty also. The roastiness comes through in the taste with a good malty body behind it. Some nuttiness also. A very nice beer.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - FEB 15, 2004
pours an amber color with an off white head... malt, carmel, and slightly roasted nutty aroma overall quite complex. medium body with great roasted malt flavors coming through with sweetness and nuts on the way down with a dry roasted finish. this was great with the slow cooked chili i had last night!!! another great beer from New Glarus!!!

Alcoholist (570) - Peoria, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2004
Cloudy nutty brown with a big frothy head. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel with a hint of hoppyness. Bitter tingly opening with a strong taste of dark chocolate and hazelnuts. Mouthfeel is tingly and a bit thin on body, leaves your mouth dry.

UPDATED: JAN 19, 2004 This was a nice ale. Had a smooth nutty taste. And just hoppy enough. Something I would buy again.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JAN 1, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2006 January 2004: Bottled. Very clear light brown, little head. Light grainy aroma with just hints of hazelnuts. Earthy, moderately sweet flavors, thinnish finish. What to say? Not bad but probably won’t buy again. 6/3/6/3/12 3.0

October 2006, draught at Glarner Stube in New Glarus, WI: the nose is much more full, fruity-spicy cherry/hazelnut/chocolate notes with a touch of allspice, the mouthfeel rounder with lots of chocolate and light nutty oiliness, fat and juicy and very enjoyable. Rating used is for this sample.
