This is a traditional Northern English Brown Ale that has a nutty malty aroma with a smooth hop finish. The beer is fermented a couple of degrees warmer than our other beers to give it a little more of a fruity winy aroma that is characteristic of the style. Brewed with Pale Ale, Cara-munich, Biscuit, and Chocolate Malts with Kent Goldings and First Gold Hops.

On tap and The Old Toad in Rochester. Poured dark ruby brown with a beige head. Aroma is almost all caramel. Medium body. Very interesting flavor. Sweet caramel, graham cracker, kettle corn, roasted chestnut, earthy, woody. Pretty original I thought, and very enjoyable.

Hand derawn sample at Autumn Festival of Ales - French toast on front, hops on back. Novel, but I’m not sure when I’d want it. Breakfast, maybe.

Almost black. Roast malt aroma, with caramel, chocolae, nuts, and something like liquorice and/or tabacco. Very interestng nose. Nutty caramel flavor with decent fruitiness. Rich palate. Quite nice.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2007 I can taste the malt and its got hops. A very good brown with conventional brown appearance and tan head. Nutty carmel sweetness. A richness to it

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 2, 2004
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.

shadey (2079) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2004
Tap: Brown pour with a white thin head. Nutty aroma, with a creamy brown ale flavor. Pretty decent brew.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 3, 2005
Growler from the brewery. Pours chestnut brown with a one finger tan head. Aroma of sweet, smoked nuts and a mild hoppy spiciness. Flavor follows suit with smokey maltiness dominating, but a definite sprucey hops character is there, along with a mild earthy richness. Moderately thick mouth feel, smoothly carbonated.

Amazingly, almost zero aroma from the tap pour. Taste is hazelnut, wood chips, pretty buttery, slightly bitter and sour.
