Disappointing...very bitter aftertaste and not much going on with the malt. Thin and underhopped.

Loved the color, loved the taste, overall this beer is one had.

Nice aroma and an almost auburn tinge to the brown color. Taste was unremarkable, perhaps a little ’light’ for a brown ale. And I agree with Astrologer, it’s too carbonated. Certainly drinkable though

I seam to remember the 2001 batch being a little smoother than the 2002, however, this is still a great example of a good Nut Brown ale, with a little chocolate malt in it. Flavored mildly with NW hops, it is perhaps one of Redhook’s best brews! It’s appearence has a nice dark, rich clean color, and the aroma is very good, but it is hard to consistently drink. Definately a beer for the winter season; I wish they would start brewing it closer to late November so I don’t have to save a couple bottles year round to have on Christmas day.

Really smooth, small head. Flavor and finish is pretty similar to the other redhook beers, but is not as strong.

A descent brown ale. Nothing Special.

Monolith (5) - Turku, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2002 does not count
Smooth ALE, creamy palate, quite tasty, different than trad. brown Ales. Bitter/creamy aftertaste original, bit underhopped.

Not bad. Im not a brown ale fan, but the nuttiness in this beer made me enjoy it. Aftertaste was a bit disappointing though.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2002
Has the brown amber color expected of a nut brown. However, I found the bland nuttiness of this beer distasteful. Definitely an unpleasant, poorly balanced mixture of flavors.

New to our area, I find it to be thick and clumsy. A good brown ale nose, decent creamy head (though too carbonated) -- and all to naught. Perhaps it’s meant to be served at icebox temps instead of brown ale range.
