(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.

Dark murky brown with hardly any light coming through. light tan head with good lacing. Deep rosted malt, coffee chicory and a little chocolate. Medium bitters on the sides of the tongue. Medium palate that is not too oily.

On tap at the brew pub. Pours a deep brown with lots of ruby highlights. Medium size creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and almonds. Flavor was nice and roasty, chocolate, mixed nuts, molasses and a touch of hop bitterness.

Brewery: This is a nut brown? Black beer with an almost porter like consistency. Chocalate and heavy coffee flavors. Verrrry nice.

I have tried all the beers from rooster fish. This one is probably the one to try hard to get your hands on. Thin body...but increadible flavor and aroma...one of the better nut browns and i don’t really care for nut browns.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUN 8, 2007
Draft. Pours a dark reddish-brown color; medium tan head with good retention and cascading, fine-bubbled lacing. Significant amounts of roasted coffee and milk chocolate in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: plenty of roasted malts and coffee; pleasant velvety chocolatiness; relaxed carbonation. Nice complexity for a brown ale. Lengthy finish, showing plenty of nuttiness and milk chocolate.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2007
Tap at TAP NY 2007: I happened to enjoy this Brown Ale. Pours a deep ruby brown color with a bubbly tan head. Has a nice aromatic bouquet of chocolatey and nutty malts. The mouthfeel is silky and creamy. The flavor has a great malt depth. There’s plenty of earthy chocolate, nutty characteristics (walnuts), caramel, cinnamon. Finishes with a smooth roastyness. This was a pleasant surprise from this obscure microbrewer, good job!
