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.

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.

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.

heemer77 (5196) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Very dark ruby body that approaches a brown color. The thin head is slightly yellowish in color. The aroma is peanuts with some light toast and a little bit of caramel. The taste is light with some old toffee and a little bit of old coffee. Seems somehow stale, but not like cardboard oxidation. Needs a little more malt to make this interesting.

hopdog (10105) - 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.
