Drat at ABQ brewpub. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Not much on the nose. A bit syrupy and thick on the tongue. More sweet malt than anything else. Not getting any nutty notes anywhere. Eh!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass. Brown with a good finger of dirty white head. Lots of bubbles visible.
Good smell of roasted malt and the "nutty".
Tastes of roasted malt, a little chocolate in the background and mild bitterness at the end.
Smooth texture, lots of bubbles, medium body.
A good brown ale. A little more of a creamy body would make this better for me, but it was enjoyable nevertheless.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the ABQ brewpub. Pours a clear dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roast and coffee. Flavor of light roast, very sweet malt, some raisin. Light palate, a little bland, tough to drink a whole pint of. The description of this beer lured me in but unfortunately it fell short.
