3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: Dark amber brown color with a small tan head. Aroma: Smokey nuts, hint of malt. Flavor: initially a nice roasted nut taste that broadens to malt sweetness and later a bitter aftertaste. Has a medium body and a pleasing mouth feel, but doesn’t really excite the palate. Average for a Nut Brown, one of Custom Brewcrafters best.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2003 New Rating:
Dark amber colour with ruby highlights. Thin off-white head. Smokey nuttiness in the aroma. Medium-bodied; Nutty flavour which fades to malt. Bittering aftertaste from the malt and nuts. Overal. pretty average for the style. I had this on draught at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York on 22-September-2003.
Found this rating in my palm from way before, but it is still valid. Dark brown in colour with a thin off-white head. Completely absent in smell, nothing going for it. Very light in 'nut' taste and somewaht bitter. An odd taste altogether. I had this on draught at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York on 25-January-2003.
