Medium to dark brown pour with a 1 finger, creamy, off white head that has decent retention and leaves decent lacing. Nutty, herbal, pine and light citrus aroma. Flavor is oily nutty sweetness up front, earthy wood, cereal, dark caramel, spice and hints of pine and herbal hops and roast to the finish. Medium body, with a sticky, but slick feel and light carbonation. Not bad, but it’s a little boozy (especially for 5.15%ABV and bland other than a vague nuttiness, I really had to search for other tasting notes. Still, I could knock back a couple without complaining.

Draught. This is a nice sweet brown with great malt sweetness and some light hopping.

Very little aroma; some chocolate malt balls. Watery, malt chocolate malt flavor. Dies quickly. Almost no aftertaste except some artificial sugar. Very average.

On tap at a bar. Looked a lttle cloudy to my eye. Carbonation was on the low side. A brown brown. Not too bitter. I'm not sure if the cloudiness was the beer or the bar. I'd like to try it somewhere else ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A very average brown ale. It has a bit of nut taste to it but in general it is just well. Average. Thin fading head. Nice nut aroma. Okay on tongue for ABV, sweet. Not bad solid average.

maekchu (2556) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Thin roast malt nose, light prunes, brown sugar, and some tobacco. Brown/amber color. Mild roasty initial, light fruity mid, with raisins and cherries, and small toffee notes. Thin body. Nice nose, indeed. Flavors are all gentle and unexciting (... it is THAT style).

Frozer (182) - Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Bottle to pint glass. Not much head. Clear brown. Nutty and coffee nose. Nice hazelnut flavor. Finish is not as smooth as other nut Browns I’ve had. Medium body easy to drink.

"Bottle-from memory, this one is lacking. Having only had the hoperandi, which is pretty damn good, before this one, I had high hopes. The nuttiness is there as is lightly roasted malts and a little chocolate. All the right pArts, but it just doesn’t come Together as well - a little boring"

On tap @ Provisions Market. Light brown pour with a small khaki head. Chocolate syrup and club soda on the nose. Yum... Light roast, some coffee grounds, and maybe some toffee. Flavor is basically like a soda. Very watery, though... Carbonic. Some roast, coffee grounds, dirt, and a bit of toffee sweetness. Some walnuts and cocoa powder. Meh.
