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.

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.

(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.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2005
Pours a weak, cola-brown with a slight but creamy tan head that fades fast. Burnt & nutty aroma with a splash of lemon. I swear I taste Poblano peppers. Otherwise, all I can pick out is unsweetened iced tea and cereal malts. A weak effort all-around. Would probably be just fine washin’ down some chili, but it doesn’t really stand on it’s own.

On tap at the Flying Saucer in Charlotte. Deep brown coloring with a medium off-white head. Light on the carbonation, but the aroma and flavor were very nutty with nice malt notes.

I’m not a huge fan of nut browns, but I liked this beer. The pour made me wonder whether I had opened a flat bottle. There was almost no carbonation bubbles but eventually a thin head formed. It even laced the glass along the way. It had little aroma, but what little there was was of malt. The taste impressed me. I enjoyed the roasted toastiness of the malt, balanced with enough subtle bitterness to forget the sweetness. I’ll have another, please!

Pretty good beer and clever name. Nice bottle but the beer tastes like water. I don’t think it is too stout but if you drink enough then you will be buzzin’.
