The Mutton Buster combines a roasty flavor with notes of chocolate and nuttiness that creates a full flavored brown ale. While it is malt focused, there is mild hop bitterness with an earthy hop flavor. The Mutton Buster may be dark in color and heavy on the malt flavors, but it is sessionable enough to have a few any time of the year.

12oz can from my boy Laramie. Medium brown hue (reddish hue when held up to light), murky clarity with mostly lasting off-white head. Excellent lacing. Aromas of dark malt, coffee, chocolate, nut, some light spice. Dark malt up front with more of nutty chocolate finish. Dry finish. One of the better brews I have had lately, great surprise!!

Can: A pour the color of weak coffee, topped with a creamy khaki head. Nutty, earthy, coffee, and roasted malt aromas… a fairly strong nose. Coffee up front, slightly sweet, nutty and earthy in the tail. A balance of roast and bittersweet. Moderate body, good finish. I don’t see why the ratings are so low… this is better than a lot of the brown ales out there.

"Nice brown ale. The nuttiness and balance between sweet chocolatey roasted malt and bittering hops is pretty nice, and makes this brown slightly more robust than most."

Really unimpressed y this brown, body was far too light for my taste, only slight malt flavors help darken and give some hint of roast or chocolate.

12 ounce can thanks to Lectvay. Nice brown with solid chocolate like flavor followed by a light overall body. Nice.

bhensonb (12952) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Can from Brewforia. Pours dark copper with a beige head. Aroma is chocolate and nuts. Med body or so. Flavor is chocolate, earthy, almost like coffee in effect. Nuts are probably coming over like coffee for me. The malt is rather roasty. Not usually a brown ale fan, but there’s enough bitter in the finish to make it ok.

Pours amber with some creamy head. Nose is nutty, bread crust, caramel, dusty, dried malt. Flavor is malty, sweet, brown sugar, cracker, bread. Dry finish. Solid for the style.

stevoj (3108) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 4, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2015 Kind of bland brown ale, watery mouthfeel. Looks good, with nice creamy beige head on brown body. taste is sweet, but short, nothing lasts to remember it by. Easy to drink, but so is water. Re-rate 11/9/2015. I have a better grasp on the style now, and this is pretty good. Learning new things every day....
