A 2002 Bronze Medal Winner in the North American Brewers' Association competition. This northern Arizona favorite has a consistent nutty flavor with just a hint of spice in its depths. A slowly emerging bitterness crops up along the way and is unobtrusively incorporated into the smooth flow. It finishes with a gentle nuttiness and spiciness. Excellent with sandwiches and subs.

Taste: Sweet and creamy hazelnut and chocolate! Nice and malty. Palate: Smooth. Full body. Lingers and warms. Overall: Wonderful, wonderful treat. I’m proud to have such a great beer come from my home state. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to try a truly nutty brown ale.

12oz bottle 2/2/10 (PHX)-Pours medium brown with a small tan head,. Aroma of malt, caramel, and nuts. Taste of the same with more malt. This medium bodied brew is a nice nut brown.

JStax (5052) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle received in a trade. Thanks! Pours a darker brown on the verge of ruby with a beige head of foam that dissipates quickly. The aroma is roasty and nutty. Some toffee peeking through. The taste is much sweeter than the aroma indicated. The roast comes through in the finish a little bit, but the sweetness is the predominant characteristic here.

Jow (3380) - New York, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Tap at brewpub which is in the resort I’m staying at, somewhat convenient after drinking this much. Pours brown with beige head and a nose that’s nutty and malty. Tastes of caramel, malt, nuts, earth, raisins, and smoke. Pretty nice tasting albeit straightforward brown ale

A tasty nut brown. Balanced towards the caramel malts, but not quite imitating brown malt...obvious caramel. I am missing the nuttiness on this one, something a little more biscuit malt might cure. Hops ate good as is the hop balance. Seems to retain head nicely. A good beer.

12oz bottle shared by Shig. Clear brown with a tiny head. Aroma of biscuit dough, nuts and some fruity esters. Flavor is rich dough malt with a very light bitterness. Medium to light body and mild carbonation. Nice brown, lots of doughy and nuty character.
