3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brown malt aroma has a very nutty character with just a hint of roastiness and some sweet brown sugar. Clear, very dark brown with generous tan/brown head that recedes slowly to cover with some lacing. Nutty marzipan flavour with a fair roasty bitterness is very pleasant. Medium-light body with effervescent carbonation although overall it feels just a touch overattenuated and dry. Bottle (clear - Winooski Beverage Warehouse Dec. ’04).

smells very malty/strong..very little head..medium dark red...very little chocolate or something in the taste...i like it much better than the oatmeal stout..a decent beer if a little thin (500 ml bottle)

Nice head and malty aroma. Light brown color and wonderfully sweet nutty taste. Not as thick as I would have liked but still a great ale.

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.
