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!!

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2014
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."
