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.

Nice chestnut body and fizzy tan head, but the aroma promises more than is delivered in the taste. Chocolate, sweet malt, smoked almonds... but a fairly bland flavor of dull malts, light brown sugar, and a faint nutty bitterness in the finish.

Nut Brown? You’re nuts! Poured ok, looked like any other brown ale. A slight skunk in the nose, and a tangy flavor. No complexity and no nuts.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 01/10/2005 Mid brown amber coloured and slightly rich on the palate with a fruit aroma. Some dryness in a nutty flavoured finish.

Pours a reddish brown. Caramel malt aromas with a hint of nut. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate with some smokey nut aftertaste.

Got this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. Clear, dark brown pour, slightly bubbly with an average white head. Chocolate and coffee with notes of orange and spice, not sure where the nuts were but it lacked a lot of complexity. Not bad.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Oh my. Like the woman in the old commercial asking ’where is the beef" I kept asking ’where are the nuts". This beer is devoid of any nutty flavor, or any distinct flavor in particular. Very thin and watery, no aromas and all in all very disappointing.

Too much tobacco and not enough chocolate, with a relatively thin body. But not as bad as its average would suggest.

Not impressive in the least. Pours a coffee/cola from the bottle with almost no head or lacing. Aroma is so slight you almost missed it. With a body like this, you should pay Charles Atlas for some advice on lifting. There isn’t any flavor. I sound too much like Simon, but there’s nothing good to pass on about this one.

Pours light brown with smallish head. Nose has a hint of malt with mild sweetness. Thin body and mild caramel flavor. Finishes without much excitement.

thegreenrooster (3649) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is of dark malts and i get some hops in there. Flavor is more on the malty side with a touch of nuts. Over all one dimential with the malts and nothing else.
