Light brown color with a red tint and a decent off white head. Sweet malt and nuttiness in the nose that dominates the flavor as well...smooth and relatively light body. A classic flavor.

Easiest way to sum this up is by saying, I hated the taste of this beer and struggled to take the whole bottle down, I was expecting a way better taste , i love the oatmeal stout but hated this, and would not recommend it to anyone.

Pours a deep reddish brown with a thick, creamy tan head. malty nose as well as some toffee, hops, and also a mild nuttiness. The falvour is the kicker in this beer, rich, malty, sweet, medium carbonation and the right amount of hopping to keep the sweetness at bay. The well balanced componets of this beer make it a great drink.

They dont call it nut brown for nothing. The aroma smells of caramel, coffee, chocolate and nuts. The flavor is alittle sweet for my liking but better then I expected. The maltiness of this beer definitely dominated the flavor while the subtle nuttiness was overtaken.

Smell of hops is not too overpowering, which is nice, can definitely get the scent of the nuts. Is utterly beautiful in the glass, deep brown, but still transparent, excellent head that drops down to a thin layer that stays on top for the whole beer.Great flavor, the balance is just as advertisted. If I had one complaint, it feels a bit overcarbonated. The aftertaste is on the bitter side, with the hops really coming on late.

malty with not too much head, the color is clear and inviting, but this wasnt as good as i was hoping. the bitter and nutty tastes do not really evolve

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Medium brown colour, small tan head. Slight nuttiness in aroma, but not much. Taste is of some caramel malt, mixed with a watery mouthfeel. There was also a slight tang of flavours I associate with clear bottled skunkiness, but thankfully, this went away as I sipped it. The beer improved greatly in fact, the more I let it sit, the watery thinness giving way to a medium bodied decent brown ale. But this was only ok in this clear bottle pasteurized form.

18 oz bottle. Poured color of strong tea. Large fairly long lasting head. Not much of an aroma. Mild malt and possibly hints of fresh bread. Mildly sweet and bitter at the same time. Overall a decent English brew.

18.7 oz. bottle. Nice nut brown color. Very nice head that sticks to the sides. Tastes like I’m eating acorns and dirt, but its delicious as if I were a squirrel or earthworm. Good stuff
