Deep coffee color. Smells of sweet chocolate and coffee. Bitter toasted nuts and a strong coffee flavor. Smooth light bodied with plenty of subtle flavors.

Sharp but light malt aroma. Clear brown color with a large white head. Moderate sweet flavor with a mild bitter finish. Pretty good for a brown.

Ron (2349) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 2, 2010
Pours light brown with a bubbly head. Fades slowly and leaves an even lace. Medium carbonation. Aroma has a hint of nuttiness. Flavor is a good mix of malts and hops and there is some lingering hops with a slightly bitter ending.

zach8270 (3219) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 25, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Dark black pour with a very thin and quickly fading white head. Roasted malt and coffee aroma mixing with some very light vegetable notes. Very smoky. Flavor begins well; a lightly roasted and rather nutty taste, but then quickly fades to a sort of club soda taste in the middle. Some flavor comes back at the end, mainly some apple skins, peanut shells, and stale malts. Finishes clean and rather watery.

TheGent (656) - , Massachusetts, USA - SEP 19, 2008
This is a pretty good example of a nut brown ale. smell off the bat was pretty nutty like raw almounds and maybe some hazelnut. There was a bit of an odd sourerness and alcohol note that was almost wine like in there but not really sure. the beer seemed to cling to the end of my tongue with the first fizziness but ended kinda watery. would wanna have maybe two of these in a sitty at most.

crazyvin (1859) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2008
12 ounce bottle. Poured a bland looking brown hue with a thin tan head that faded fast. It almost looked like flat cola. Aroma was a simple malty note. Flavor seemed slightly sour with many a nutty presence. Light on the palate.

jcwattsrugger (11004) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2008
on tap-pours a dissipating tan head and dark brown color. Aroma is dark malt-chocolate/some licorice. Taste is dark malt-coffee/chocolate/some licorice, faint hops. OK carbonation.

after4ever (5937) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2006
12-oz. Many thanks, 46er3498! Tom has a tough SN to remember but he’s a great trader. Pours ultra-mahogany with a thick layer of very light tan suds that falls to a frosting of mousse. Some lace. Smells like the dear old familiar sweet dark malts. Some chocolate and nougat in there, too. Mild attack; fairly light body, Low carb. A little spritz of hop there at the end. Fairly neutral throughout. Well made beer; sturdy little brown.

hopdog (8530) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2006
12oz bottle acquired in trade with jjpm74 (thanks!). Poured a dark brown with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of nuts, chocolate, and toasted malts. Tastes of nuts toasted malts, chocolate and light caramel. Has a light coffee finish. Thinner and somewhat lively body. I enjoyed this one for a Brown Ale.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - SEP 9, 2006
Very light, nutty aroma with a root beer-esque pour and appearance. Watery, "paper" thin body uncharacteristic of other more substantial winter-style nut browns. Flavor is equally thin and lacking of any complexity. Wouldn’t go out of my way to buy it again.
