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.

Pours coca-cola brown with almost no head. Nose is best part - initially almost meaty, olive and coffee notes. The flavor is almost like shiner bock with a little extra smokiness thrown in - slightly smoky/roasted malt and coffee, biting unpleasant end - dreck.

UPDATED: SEP 9, 2011 Pours a dark brown with a medium foamy beige head. Smells metallic and malty like keg beer. Some dark malt lays the base for vinegar like nuttiness. Burnt bitter finish. Fizzy carbonation. I don’t know about this stuff. 2/5/08 [Wow! bottle found in the back of my fridge from Sep 2007 - still has a huge amount of carbonation... they do an amazing job bottling I guess, flavors are much better now, malts more complex hehe, darker, sweeter, roastier. This beer just needs age! ] 1/15/09 [rerate 9/10/11] last bottle of that sep 07 batch haha, vinous, malty, crystal, great brown now!

Not sure where they get off calling this a nut brown. I didn’t catch any nuttiness flavor whatsoever. It had little to no aroma, some decent maltiness, but was mostly just a bland, watery waste of time.

6:07pm on 4/14/09 @ The Casa, me casa del Licko .. thanks Matt, pours with a big cream head, swollen thumb height .. . old cereal and mud aromas .. . funny name for a brew .. . simple, base bottom line stuff .. . light nuttiness, and maybe some light molasses... nice aftertaste but the whole beer is way WAY to dumbed down ... now to go milk that cow in my closet ..

Yeah this is a sour beer, pretty much nothing like the nut browns I like. It is very thin, and has an absolute non existing palate. The only taste I get is the very bitter almost sour finish. Stick to Modus Hoperandi Ska, because if I had this first I wouldn’t have given MH a drink. Only thing I like about this beer is the name!

malty but thin, nice color and easy to drink. better colder than when warm. almost a brown lager IMO.

Pours light bronw with a thin head. Not much aroma. Thin malts. Taste is thin- light fruitiness and maybe a little nut. Not much else.

thanks to 17floor for this one. pours really dark reddish color with one finger ot tannish head. Plastic strawberry aroma Ive grown to dread. starts out mildly tart with strange bitter astringent flavors. Wierd nutty flavor. Ends disgustingly. NO! NO! NO!
