1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Iím having a hard time trying to enjoy this beer, Iíve had it several times now and there has been a 6 pack sitting in the fridge for a few weeks now being ignored. Poured from a 12oz bottle into a shaker; reddish/med brown, nice dense head that retains for 3-4 minutes. Thick mouthfeel but strangely watered down. Bitter burnt/roasted malts with a mellow sweetness, very light trace of caramel, if there are hops in here I donít taste or smell them. Honestly, I canít even detect the the nuts, the roasted flavor pretty much overwhelms any other flavors in this beer for me. The smell is very representational of the taste.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a small tan head on it. Nose is quite nutty with a lot of toasting. Taste is toasty and light with just a bit of sweetness on the back end. Decent brew.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 3/3/14
Aroma: The aroma is nutty and malty, nothing much beyond that, but on-style
Appearance: It pours a nice chestnut color with a beige head and some strong lace
Flavor: The flavor is nutty and malty as well, with a late lightly bitter hop component for balance
Palate: This one has a soft mouthfeel with a light-medium body and a lightly dry finish
Not a bad nut brown at all. Simple and on-style, with just enough of a hop presence to keep it from being completely one-dimensional.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2014 Dark brown translucent color, big head fades down to a stable white head. Strong aroma. I like my nut browns not quite as nutty as this I guess, this is borderline heavyhanded. It has some toasty notes too, but a light palate with a long aftertaste. Needs a more complex taste, maybe a different yeast or better combination of malts. It feels simple but it still tastes good.

The flavor is lightly roasted, toffee, nut hints and some prunes in the flavor. Some bitterness. Quite thin, with pleasant carbonation, dry. Roasted finish with toffee and bitterness.
