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.

Jokes (1453) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Clear brown body with a full inch white head that quickly disappeared. The aroma has a nice nuttiness, chocolate, whole grains and lightly toasted bread. Light, drinkable body with nice smoothness. The flavors continue to show the heavy malt tendencies. Nuts, breads, grains, and a little roasted character. Easy to drink but rather unremarkable otherwise.

hopscotch (9891) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Sparkling clear, copper ale with a large, frothy, off-white head... which diminishes to a small, creamy, lasting head. The aroma is all about milk chocolate, pecans and caramel... a turtle, basically. The flavor is well-balanced, chocolatey and nutty. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, chocolatey, dry finish.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2004
Sparkling chestnut browns and oranges, lasting creamy off-white head. Nose is malty, nutty, roasty, earthy and a bit sweet. Flavors add some citric hop qualities that balance out the nuttiness and hints of chocolate. Medium bodied, fizzy carbonation, semi-sweet nutty finish. A nice surprise from the well known NG fruit beer gods.

jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 16, 2004
On Tap at Morels restaurant, Middleton. Beautiful light brown, moderate, though lingering head with nice lacing. Surprisingly rich, chocolatey flavor though body is on the light side. Moderate finish with a slight roasted ping of bitterness. Immensely drinkable.

Draught, Guu’s Stevens Point: deep red-orange amber, with flecks of cocoa that produces a stained glass effect, varying lights drastically changes the colour. Nutty, hop aroma that leans more toward pine and IPA qualities than the Brown ale side (which turns out was a nice change of pace and added some complexity) . . . flavours were well rounded with some hazelnut and chocolate as well as some pine sap and even a good caramel malt bill. Not quite what I was expecting, but tasty no less.

Opaque brown color with a thin white head. The aroma hits you right away: sweet, malty, grain... The taste is nice. The malty flavors are very enjoyable. thx captaincouger

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.

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.
