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.

Crisp, fresh, complex wave of malty intensity. Good persistent presence that does not overwhelm. An elixir.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown with a dense, off-white head. Smell: Sweet-smelling, enormously nutty aroma. Hints of cocoa powder. Taste: The taste is initially semi-sweet, but incredibly nutty and toasted all the while. Again, there’s that hint of cocoa. Just enough of a gentle, subtle bitterness on the dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: I’ll tell you what, it was surprisingly nice, at least on-tap.

Aroma of maple and roasted nut. Pours a deep brown with an off-white head. Taste is warmly sweet to start Peaking with a roasted maple flavor offset with a touch of hops. Nicely balanced.

nearbeer (3631) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2007
12 oz, bottled 5th week of May. Beautiful deep mahogany, with ruby highlights. Medium-sized, creamy head that lasts. Spicy, earthy molasses, cocoa, and toasted nut aroma. Flavor is incredibly balanced, and fairly complex for a brown. Mostly dry toasted nut; some cocoa; slight coffee; sourish, earthy and metallic molasses; delicately bitter herbs on the finish. Medium-bodied, creamy smooth, slightly watery and refreshing palate. Excellent brown ale that could be a great session beer.

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2003 I always enjoy busting a nut, I mean buster nut brown ale. Not great, but not bad, overall an average nut brown.

Bought this mostly because of the artwork on the bottle, but really liked the taste as well.

Pours dark coffe brown with shallow creamy froth. Smells of fresh dark malted coffee. Medium nectar weight with ample residual effers. Flavors of leather are forward with coffee, coaco, charcoal, with a slight nuttiness. Dry with a nice mellow bitterness on the finish. Well ballanced.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Asheville, NC. Wow, nice looking brew. It pours a striking amber with creamy top and bubbly underneath tan head. The aroma is full of rich malts and nuttiness and a touch of chocolate too. The taste is sort of Newcastle like but richer and chewier which is a very nice feature. It is nutty, sweet with malts and seems kind of lager-y with yeast. After a few ounces this thin bodied beer gets pretty sweet.

Bottle as shown at Flying Saucer. Pours a clear amber with a medium frothy off white head that leaves sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is Light roasted malt and nuts. Medium mouthfeel with a rich malt with caramel and raisin. Easy to drink, a good brown ale frkm SKA.
