Growler filled at Consumers in Niagara Falls. Deep ruby brown with a beige head. The aroma is sweet and roasty, with chocolate, hazelnut and a hint of smoke. The flavor starts sweet and roasty, with a smoky side that gets stronger as the beer warms. Lighter notes of chocolate and hazelnuts. Very good. Really more like a lightly smoked porter than a brown ale, but if you want to call it a brown ale, it’s a damn good one.

The fact that this is a nut brown says it all to me. yes, like others have said, this comes off almost as a porter, it’s thick, it’s rich, it’s got a nuts roasted in chocolate taste with a very smooth finish. You’ll have to like dark beer to appreciate this nutty brown ale.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2008
On draft at brewpub. Poured deep brown in color with absolutely no head or hint of even one bubble. (even when agitated). Aroma of heavy roast, toffee and chocolate malt. Tastes of roasted chocolate, toffee, caramel, and nuts. This one could have passed as a porter. Wishing these had more carbonation.

Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 17, 2008
On tap at Wildflower Cafe. Coffee and roasted-burnt malt, caramel and molasses. Mild hop character, even a bit of smoke. Dark brown-black clear with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with caramel, coffee, and chocolate. Mild bitter grain and some carbonic acidity in the finish. Nutty finish and after. A bit astringent, however.

(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Dark black pour with a tan head. Aroma is very roasty and slightly nutty with some sweet malts. Flavor is bitter and sweet at the beginning with a roasted malt middle and a bitter and burnt malt finish. Tastes more like a porter to me.
