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.

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, itís a damn good one.

Sampled on tap at the brewpub Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a thinnish tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells of roasted malts and coffee. Slightly nutty and earthy. Smells like this is going to be darker than a nut brown ale. Taste is roasted coffee, chocolate, nutty, earthy, malty. Finishes a bit on the dry side with a long lingering roasted grain. Very tasty, but almost porter or stout like with a lot of roasted grain going on here. Medium to thin body and level of carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer, but again its hard to call it a nut brown.

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!

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

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.

Tap at Barcade for the 5th Anniversary Party. A new NY brewer? This was the first Iíd heard of them. Mildly hoppy, clean, nutty aroma. Brazen and bold. Full flavor, medium bodied, roast and carbonic acid. Kind of fishy. A better than average brown. Iíll be looking for more from these guys.

Chestnut brown color with aroma of nuts, roasted malt, and caramel. Nut flavor with roasted malt, hint of coffee, and caramel sweetness. Very nice beer.

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.

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.
