COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dark brown ale deriving maltiness from two types of American crystal malts, yet not overly heavy in body. Rounded with a nutty flavor from chocolate malt and a hint of black patent malt. Finished with aromatics from Czech Saaz hops.

Dark brown, maybe opaque, pour with a thick brown head. Aroma of chocolate and hops. Flavor to me had a roasty or almost smokey flavor. Medium body appropriate for the style. Roast(mostly) and a little bitter on the finish. Pretty good brew.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - MAR 3, 2003
Dark reddish brown, good head formation. Chocolaty and hoppy on the nose. Palate is sticky and chocolaty while there's a nice hoppiness in the finish that just about cuts through the sweetness. Roasted chocolate lingers well into the finish.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 19, 2003
Cocoa and roasted grains in the nose. Dark ruby-brown color, decent head retention. Nutty, malty, chocolatey flavor. They should just call it a brown, b/c it's somewhere between a brown ale and a brown porter.

The appearance of a porter with a gourmet dark ale taste. An excellent brew by an excellent company. Disregard the infected ratings-this brewery is completely safe, legitimate, and the largest barrel production in Arizona.

Re-Rate 09/19/02: Pours a clear dark brown, the head is light chocolate, frothy, long lasting, with decent lace. Nose is nutty sweet, malt, caramel, the front is sweet, the top is light to medium. Finish is moderately carbonated, somewhat dry, well hopped, and a quite drinkable beer. A middle of the road ’Nut Brown’, drinkable and worth a try, but may be a bit to sweet for many as it is for me and I must ’Downgrade’ it a bit. Ranks #722 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Dark brown color, medium head. Roasted malts, good nutty flavor. Medium bodied. Slightly hoppy. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter
