Standard Nut Brown that has a Newcastle sort of feel to it. There is nothing that stands out in this one. Chocolate and nut fill this brew with a slightly smokey flavor. Great aroma though.

Chocolate and lucious malt aromas, deep auburn, small toffee head. Malt flavour is almost smokey, toast also. Very smooth, creamy, extremely well balanced. A really tasty brew!

Pours a medium brown, thin tan head. Malty nose, some nuts as well. Flavor was nutty with a touch of chocolate. Fairly smooth, pretty drinkable. Not bad.

Had this at Shea's beer fest thingy. POurs a typical brown/porter color. Aroma is of chocolate/coffee. Roasty taste. Seems more like a porter than a brown.

Not a fan. Served on tap in a resturant down the street from the source. Quite flat, even for a brown, and tasted more like iced tea with hops than anything I would taxonomically classify as beer. As for head, if it had any, it dissapated well before the waitress brought it to me. Overall, quite stale and I'm afraid that is the flavor they were going for.

A MILD English-style brown ale, in the vein of Newcastle Brown. Sort of coats the stomach like Pepto-Bismol. A light, pleasant body.
