COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hopdog (9059) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2005
12oz bottle acquired in trade with FlactoAlto (thanks!). Poured a deep and cloudy brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of nuts and toasted malts. Tastes of burnt nuts, toasted and lightly roasted malts, and a hint of caramel. Overall very nutty. Thinner body.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with whaleman, thanks David!) This flavorful brown ale is nutty, sweet and mildly roasty, but there is an obvious yeastiness permeating the flavor, putting a slight damper on the finish of this beer. The nose is sweet and very nutty. Medium bodied, slick and smooth on the palate. Medium-dark brown in color, but fairly clear. The light tan head settles to a ring. Didn’t care for it too much at first, but this really grew on me as I kept taking sips while listening to Twisted Christmas Tunes.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 22, 2005
Bottle. Thanks Degarth. Aroma was very metallic, like a tap that hasn’t been cleaned. Pour was nice dark brown off white head. Flavor was much better. A lot of malt, slightly sweet and nutty. Palate was ok, a little thick. Overall very drinkable just not a superior.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Bottle. Dark brown body with a thin dense head. Aroma-well, it smells like a nutty brown ale. Go figure. Tastes fairly rich for a brown ale. Notes of nuts, very light smoke, medium sweetness. Rather thick syrupy palate.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 30, 2005
12 oz bottle: Darkening, red-brown with a wispy gray and tan film…rich and darkly charred toast aroma, mostly unpleasant. Body is pretty decent, but the flavours where along the same lines as the aroma: burnt hops and blackened caramel with hints of toasted grain and brown sugar. On the below average end of the brown ales that I have sampled.

Clear, brown body, thin brown head. Odd aroma of oily nuts, lightly sweet brown sugar, toasted grains and (unidentifiable by me) off aromas. Very light hop character, but hints of pine and earthy perfume. The body is rounded, but ultimately a little thin. Sweet and malty, with a toasted grain and lightly roasted character. The sweetness is counterbalanced by a hefty dose of slick, oily malt, combined with the relatively light hop bitterness at finish. An average brown ale that is easily passed over.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2005
(Bottle, courtesy of Kevin) Pours a medium brown body with a off-white head. Sweet malty aroma with some caramel and nuts. Flavor of malt and caramel. A bit thin with a somewhat bitter finish.

fomentateur (110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Creative busy packaging but a really lame beer. The color is definately correct for a "nut" brown ale, there was little to no head, impressivley low carbonation, but a rancid roasted malt flavor leaving little to the imagination and the palate to appreciate.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Sharp grassy aroma. Amber/brown with a thin white head. Light sweet cereal malts in the fore followed by an odd and out of place spiciness in the finish. It’s different I guess.

purple tinted brown pour with a thin light tan head. sweet peanut nose. taste is watery, very chalky mouthfeel. has graveyard dead quality like it is flat. some light nut flavor and sweetness, but nothing worth cracking nother bottle open to get at.
