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 donít really care for nut browns.

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 (3028) - 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. Thereís 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!

On tap at Rooster Fish in Watkins Glen. Pours a deep reddish brown that does allow some light to pass through. Surprisingly small head that disappeared quickly. Nutty aroma along with some roasted malts and chocolate. With all of those great smells, I was expecting more from the flavor, which was more subdued than the aroma. Still, good stuff

This one has a malthy caramel nutty aroma alongside a somewhat smoky flavor with a dry medium finish that is accompanied with bitter hops that one would associate with a stout. This is the tastiest beer Iíve sampled at Rooster Fish and it seems well balanced.

29.04.06 Tap at TAPNY. Funny name for a brewery out of Watkins Glen, but pretty cool at any rate. This one was as solid as it gets for a brown ale. Itís not at all sweet, a trap that many brown ales seem to fall into, and actually nicely dry. Chocolately, itís almost a porter.
