Odd because this almost smells like latex paint. A little sweet. Nutty flavor and very smooth. Really not much as far as standing out but is a pleasant drink.

I hear this is a good beer, but all I got was skunky narstiness, (try brown bottles !)

Nice nutty aroma, as the name suggests. Flavor is sweet but not overpowering, with a touch of lighter hops. I'm usually not a brown ale guy, but this was pretty good. Samuel Smith delivers again.

This is suprisingly not watered down for a brown ale. A nice rich flavoring that has a hint of peanut. Good after taste too.

Very peanutty aroma and a similar flavor... very balanced between malts and a hoppy, ever-so-slightly bitter finish. Thanks Timdanchanta!

Pours a nice deep brown with a huge tannish head. Aroma of malt with bits of fruit. Some nuts in the flavor, though malt is more apparant. Nice finish to a good brown.

Amberish color, foam exploded out of the bottle. Malty aroma with a hint of fruit. Initial taste was slightly sweet then quickly went dry. Nice lace,no real nut taste. Nice beer if the only other choice is Miller or Bud
