Sampled at Brew Ha Ha 2004. Clear ruby/brown colored. Light brown head is massive and leaves very nice lacing. Roasted hazelnuts, brown sugar, and molasses aroma is absolutely delicious. Flavor has more of that sweet, nutty hazelnut characteristic that kept be going back for more samples. Slight bitterness in the finish. This was the highlight of the festival.

A very smooth, sweetish brown ale. More akin to Samuel Smithís brown ale than to other west coast browns. I finally sampled this beer at the California Brewerís Festival and it gets my nod for Best of Show, even though the judges piced Allagash Double.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - SEP 9, 2004
From a MoriMoto bottle. Red brownish color, with a medium fluffy tan head. Malty, nutty aroma, choco, some hops and chewy toffee. Very nutty flavor, with some sweet ad nice undertones. Tastes like some kind of sweet dessert liquor. Very nice flavro and a very nice and balanced brew. Excellent!

Tejas (882) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 5, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Re-Rate. This bottle was far better than the first. Really big nutty flavor and a lot of it. Has a nice finish. Great brew to gnaw on for awhile. Only downside is the smell. It didnít taste anything like it smelled. I picked up prunes and maybe raisins. Two fruits which I absolutely HATE. Itíll get high marks on the re-rate from me with the exception of the Aroma category.

Pours a dark brown with an amber hue and light brown head. Aroma is of light roastiness and hazelnut. Taste is nutty with notes of chocolate, maple syrup with a hint of smokiness, molasses and coffee. Pefectly sweet with a touch of bitterness. Pretty complex. Goes down very smooth. Mouthfeel is full and round but ends a little watery. Overall, a great brown ale.

SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 2, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 Warm leather brown hue and thin almond colored head that fizzed out rather quick. Nose is a regular brown ale styled and has traces of sugar and caramel malt. Flavor is delisicously nutty and is made up of brown sugar, caramel and hazelnuts. Also has a sweet syrup and toasted malt taste. The best brown ale i know of.

Pour is a brown with a creamy tall head. The aroma and taste are extraordinary. Just plain outstanding. A sipping beer to be sure, but totally delicious.

bottle 22 oz. Field rate (paper cup). Morimoto was on the bottle. Mostly clear brown w tan head. Aroma is spicey malt w mild hops. Flavor is creamy malt w a cocoa and mildly spicey hazelnut tang. There was a sharpness (alkaline taste) and a touch of thin & watery to the mouthfeel. Perhaps it was an old bottle. Medium bodied. This didnít appeal to me. Brown ale isnít really my style anyway.
