COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beers receive a secondary fermentation in the cask and are hand pumped to the bar at "cellar temperature." Purely authentic, purely delightful, and only at The Tap Room. The "nut brown" is dry and nutty.

Growler from the brewery. I know I drank this because I still have the growler. Pretty sure I liked it too but the brain is somehow a bit foggy. May well be better than what I am rating.

nimrod (73) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 31, 2008
On cask at Taproom. Pours dark, creamy brown with a large head. Very malty with vanilla, nutty, coffee, and some chocolate flavors. Very bready and nutty aroma. This was a good beer to try, put very slow to drink.

Rating #10 for this beer!

As the description says, on cask at the Tap Room. Opaque brown pour with a light-tan colored, Guinness-like head. Great nutty, bready, sweet, malty aroma and flavor to match. Flavor also had a light caramel note to it. Dry finish. Not exceptionally easy to drink, but good nonetheless.

sethdude (697) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 5, 2005
Cask at Taproom, 2005- Pours a dark opaque brown, with a large, lasting head. Aroma is sweet with notes of vanilla, dark fruit, honey, and woody notes. Flavor mirrors aroma perfectly, and this beer comes across with a flavor of bourbon, and an alcohol bite to match. Great complex flavor, though not terribly quaffable.

desurfer (1212) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2005
Very dark body, no head. Sweet, malty and nutty, also bitter. Not too bad, but I know I’m biased and don’t like brown ales to begin with.

kwoeltje (2232) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUL 30, 2005
(cask conditioned at the Tap Room) Lovely deep chocolate brown with full light tan head. Left great lace on the glass. Aroma of slightly sweet malt. Flavor is malt, hints of caramel and nut. Not too sweet. A whisper of hops in the finish. Full mouth feel. Excellent.

MarkR (68) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2003
On tap Medium, clear brown with red highlights. Small, light tan head with minimal lacing. Slightly sweet, malty aroma with a hint of nuttiness. Flavor is malty, with lots of toffee/caramel, breadiness, and some yeasty fruitiness. Fair amount of nuttiness. The dry finish has some spicy hop bitterness, which adds a bit of length. Body is on the lighter side of medium, with a crisp, acidic finish. Overall, this isn’t one of Schlafly’s better seasonals, but it’s a good, basic brown ale.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Hop in the City '03: Golden brown orange. Sweet malty aroma with some orange candy and hops. Overly sweet maltiness, missing the deep roasted nuts of a great Brown, but a strong finish keeps this one very drinkable.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 20, 2003
This rating was from the Hop In The City event where brews from the previous year were sampled (5 oz) by the attendees from kegs. THis brew poured a medium sized head of fine to large sized off-white colored long lasting bubbles that left behind a semi-transparent dark brown colored body. The aroma was malty and the mouthfeel was smooth with a slight bite to it. Its flavor was a typical malt hop one.

This is the third time I have entered ths damn beer into the system. Please forgive me. I am not trying to boost my rating count, I am just an idiot, that’s all. A very well-done Brown. Very similar to Hex Nut on cask, though not nearly as nutty. Quaffable and delicious.
