Brown color with small tan head. Aroma of malt and grass. Medium body. Flavor dry malt, a little nutty, pleasant and not complex. Nothing particularly bad, or good to say, decently average overall. Reynolds314 (3459) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Kind of oddly sour and malty sweet without too much else going on. Another boring brown that doesnt do it for me. MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2013
Bottle. Bought in Bar Harbor. Pours a dark brown colour with generous white head that quickly fades. Aroma is chocolate, hazelnut. Taste is caramel, nuts. Not bad at all.

On tap in the tasting room. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Soft cocoa, nutty. Toasty malt, wheat and nutty gentle malt. Light bitterness, easy and crisp. BrettTaylor (778) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2013
Nut brown ale - a bit of hop at the start then a malty finish. Finish isn’t very long but this is a nice session beer.

Bomber. Nose is strongly roasty, chocolate and lots of burned notes, with an oily malt slick and some mild rotting fruit. Deep chestnut body with ruby highlights and a tan head. Taste is above average in sweetness with ash and roast, some burned notes -- reminds of a Schwarzbier, really, with some additional chocolate and nutty notes. Crisp light-medium body with a bit of a smoky finish. Hops are minimized. Alcohol is perfectly controlled, but it’s too sweet for me. A good flavor and well done on the whole. mikemccarthy (91) - Huntington, West Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
Pours a dark, translucent copper with low turbidity and a thin, white head that quickly fades. Moderate lacing. Roasted, nutty aroma. Light, slightly effervescent and thin mouthfeel -- a little richer than a Newcastle, but not as full as a Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar. Nutty, caramel flavor. A good representative of the style.

Medium brown pour with an off-white head. Aroma is full of toasted malt and nuts. Flavor is grain, cocoa, nuts and toasted malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not bad. asheft (3089) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2013
Almost chocolaty aroma with nuts and some fruit. Clear dark brown with a lacy, off-white cover. Very weak hops presence in the flavour with sweet, sherry-like (cellared too long) notes and a mild bitterness. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, sweet, nutty finish.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a deep ruddy color with a decently frothy off white head. The nose is rather fruity and nutty. The flavor has a slightly malty fruitiness to it with the slightest of bitterness at the end. Light to medium mouthfeel. Basically a stalwart session brew for malt fans.
