Bottle. Amber muddy brown with a light tan head. Nose of bran and oats, mild pecan, a little bit of blood/metal, light grassy hops, dark caramel malt. Flavor is pretty nice, light caramel sweetness, honestly I donít taste any pecans, light nuttiness (sans pecans), some hops, brown sugar. Honestly not a bad brown ale and thankfully not too Sweet like some pecan themed things can Be.

On tap at Milltown. Pours a deep rich brown with ruby highlights and one finger of sandy tan head. Nose is very nice, nutty and biscuity with notes of fresh baked bread and malt sweetness. Dry and balanced flavor, nutty with lots of biscuit malt and a light chocolate character. Lightly roasted character, dry and light medium bodied.

Bomber from Total Wine, Durham. Cheapíun. Kudos for the p00tzy label! Not a style I generally freak about but this was a surprisingly nice English style brown. The heavy dose of pecans complements it well but also accentuates the modest hopping, giving this one a balance and depth that I enjoyed.

Always excited to see new offerings from OHB in bottle form. Bottle split and shared with a friend. Poured into a pint glass. Best by Jan. í13 marked on the side. Pours a tawny mahogany with a thin beige cap of froth on top. The nose is dry with notes of pecans shells, wood, brown sugar, toast. Thereís a good amount of bubbly pop to this one, which isnít the most pleasant. Slick though, so it drinks easily enough. Semi-sweet flavors of toffee, graham cracker, crushed nuts. Not bad. The pecan aspect comes through more in the nose than the flavor, but I like where they went with this one. A decent drink. Full disclosure though...this is one of the worst labels I have ever seen.

Thanks to GatorGuy92 for the share. Cheers, Matt! Pours a hazy brown with an off-white head. Nose is hazelnuts, caramel, and a big nutty character with some intriguing bitterness. Flavor is similar- lovely nuttiness with some sweet malt. Lingering hazelnut/ nutella in the finish. Nice beer!
