Pours a dark amber color, with a copper colored head that dissapates quickly. Smells like chocolate and nuts, the odor just floods the nose. It has a very distinct hazelnut taste, with strong hints of chocolate and carmel. Great mouthfeel, through and through. Very complex, and very enjoyable.

ElPresidente1984 (173) - Maine, USA - FEB 10, 2006
bottle, pours dark brown, with a medium head. aroma is of sweet caramel, brown sugar and nuts. taste is very unique. the hazelnut flavor is dominant. flavor is vary good, but seems slightly simple. you have to wait a minute between sips or you lreally loose the flavor and it starts to taste alot more watery. but if you have patients and take it slow, this beer will not dissapoint.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2006
Pours a reddish brown with a small head. Smells like sweet maple syrup and nuts. It has a rich hazelnut flavor complimented by maple and caramel. It was a little too sweet but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

sersdf (1019) - chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 8, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 to be fair, the aroma was somewhat muted by a very cold storing temperature and glass. unimpressive head, large sized bubbles. relatively effervescent beer, with good coloring. the real highlight is the flavor. not particularly a brown ale fan, the first words out of my mouth to my friends were "how could anybody not like this beer?" itís delicious, and the nut flavour (not sure about the hazelnut, particularly), is substantial but not overpronounced. great mouth feel. rerate: wonderful aroma and a slightly sweet taste, but ultimately a brilliantly crafted beer.

ghawener (1553) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - FEB 8, 2006
Bottle: Dark brown colour, pours a beige heavy head but quickly fades. Aroma is spectacular, nutty, chocolate, sweet. Taste is silky, creamy and smooth, strong notes of hazelnut; truly a World Champion.

blankboy (7110) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 4, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, nuts and maybe even some chocolate. Delicious flavour of hazelnuts, caramel malt, roasted malt and a nice bitterness in the finish. Bodyís a little thin but the mouthfeel is nice and creamy. If only all Nut Browns were this good, this is definitely the best one Iíve ever had. Great stuff.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2006
Beautiful deep brown color, light brown head. An extremely nice nutty aroma with heavy malts. Brown sugar is highly evident, light carbonation after the initial pour. Tastes almost like maple syrup.

This is probably one of the better brown ales Iíve had...the Nautical Nut is better...but I only had a small taste of that at the brewery. Color is a dark brown with a medium mocha head. Aroma is very subtle...a bit of roasted malts. You can actually taste hazelnut in this beer...itís pretty damn good. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry.
