Probably one of their best, this has no body but boasts a fantastic smell of roasted chestnuts and cinnamon. The flavor doesn’t fall too short either, sweet and spicy. Smooth. Weak body, tho.

Tap from sampler. A really good nut brown. Nice brown pour, small head. aroma is full of nuts, whole grain bread, yeast, honey and caramel. Flavor is better than I expected. Some great nutty flavors, caramel malts, some hops presence and a nice mouthfeel. I enjoyed this.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear amber to brown with frothy tan to mocha head and full on thick cobweb lacing. The aroma has a varied malt attack with roasted malts, biscuit malts, bread, mild chocolate malts and just a hint of vague hops. The taste is full on roasty malts with medium roasted malts, some biscuit and solid (and tasty) chocolate malts all coming together in harmony. I really like the addition of chocolate malts in this beer. It goes very well with the rest of the flavor. Some of the rest being a light amount of oxidation and some pine hops. Good stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 A sweetish example of a nutbrown that thankfully does not become cloying. It’s not my favorite beer style but this is a decent execution of it. Drinkable, solid, clean, sessionable.
Re-rate Feb 08: Pours hazy medium brown with solid lacing. Nary a nose to be found, perhaps some freshly washed tin can. Good caramel character with a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. Good hopping to balance the pecan and walnut flavors. Better than I remembered or an improved version.
