The deScription of a nutty ale is eminently apt. Beautiful colour when phas oured and a brilliant presence in the lasting body. The nose is as nutty as the deScription and has ’session’ billed all over it. Sit down, enjoy, and have another, another, another. SS, you are the dudes, sorry the gentlemen.

Pours a nice dark brown color. Very crisp and carbonated. You really can taste the roasted malt. Little bit of a nutty flavor. And caramel too.

One of my favorite brown ales. Enough malt to keep a malt fiend like me happy. I still prefer scottish ales and strong ales but this is nice for a change.

A beautiful brown ale, nice head. Very inviting aroma of malts and what I guess is hazelnuts. Taste is malts with more hazelnut. Very smooth, but it seems almost "greasy" and doesn’t sit too well. Maybe that’s just me.

Used to be my favorite nut brown ale, but i’ve found better now, but either way its a good brown ale, and I would still drink it

Pours ruby red with an off white head. Skunky at 1st until the head diminishes. After the head is gone it has a sweet roasted malt aroma. Sweet malts are the dominating taste with some fig. There is also some nuttiness to it. The main thing to this beer is its dominating malts.

A dark ale with plenty of taste. Not too much of an aftertaste, but a lot of flavor. Medium bodied.

Amber bronze with a large fluffy head. Aromas are caramel, toffee and spice - if a bit a bit light struck and skunky (damned clear bottles). Flavours are better - nutty and sweet with some sourness. The finish is burnt toffee and coffee with some fruitiness. Not bad, even if let down by its aroma.
