This Brown Ale has a touch of nuttiness provided by our good friends Mr. and Mrs. Victory and Munich Malt. The addition of Northern Brewer, Cascade, and Willamette hops smooth this beer out to create an incredibly drinkable Brown Ale.

Malty. Really nice color for a brown. Nothing spectacular, but very drinkable.

Good name; not so good beer. Brownish color. Hit the style in flavor, but was pretty bland. Could have been more assertive.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Bottle: Deep brown, fairly dark, moderate frothy light beige head, light lacing.   Nutty aroma, earthen malts, roasty, with a bit of cocoa.   Pale roasted malts, minor nuttiness, somewhat sweet, with very light pale fruit skin on the finish.   Very low hop profile, with a underlying sour aspect that is very subtle.   Body and mouthfeel are average.   Slightly bitter cocoa lingers, accompanied by a very soft sourness.   Not half bad, better than what I expected based on its average.

Strykzone (6750) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2006
This is a straight forward brown ale. It has an aroma of roasted nut and malt and the flavor is similar with the addition of over cooked coffee. It is smooth in the mouth but just a bit syrupy. There is no carbonation and it is possible I have a flat sample. Flavor is also somewhat muted.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2006
Pours deep brown/red with thin tan head. Aroma is that of coffee and roasted nuts. Flavor contains malts, roasted nut, and a bit of a burnt coffee (black malt maybe?). There were no noticable hops. The burnt flavor lingers a little but not too long. A ho-hum brown ale.

Bottle poured a clear brown with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of malt, nuts and a hint of cacoa. Palate was medium bodied. Flavors of sweet malt, cacoa and a hint of nuts with a smooth sweet finish.
