Leanu (41) - Red Lodge, Montana, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Ive really started to like the Nut Browns, and this one is no different. Brown in color with a burnt amber/red when held to light, the nose on this is great. It smells like the brown skin part of a walnut just under the shell. It was lighter on the palate than I anticipated, and had a smooth draw and nice flavor.

Ratman197 (14504) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of cola, carmel and light spice. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and light cola with a smooth lingering carmel finish.

after4ever (8019) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Draft at the Old Post. Murky dark brown with a dense and creamy tan head. Big burning leaves and toasted nuts on the nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, nuts, leaves, and black bread on the mid palate. Mild finish. Great brown.

poisoneddwarf (2493) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Bomber into dimpled mug. Pours dark brown with amber highlights showing through when held up to the light. Has a small beige head that dissipates into a resilient blanket of foam. Aroma is bready, nutty, syrupy, milky; has faint notes of anise. Taste is lightly sweet and just a tad bitter. Has a nice nutty flavor but the body is thin. Enjoyable.

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 14, 2011
Draft. Medium brown color with a small tan head. Earthy aroma. Bitter, roasted nut flavor. There is an odd earthy flavor as well with an unpleasant, lingering sour taste. Nasty syrupy texture with average carbonation. Thought my taste buds would adapt to the flavor as I drank more but it only got worse. Couldnt finish the pint.

DuffMan (10139) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle. Medium dark brown, light tan head. Aroma is caramel and light cocoa, marred a little by some metal. No metal in the flavour thankfully, just the same dark caramel as in the nose, but no chocolate or fruit really. Bitter hop note in the finish, but no real flavour from the hops. Mouthfeel is rather thinnish. Underwhelming.

3fourths (9315) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2010
draft. clear chestnut brown. clean nose of roasted nuts, grain chaff, light roast and cracked just-burnt toast. medium body, medium to heavy dryness, very clean profile - snappy toasted grains with crunchy walnuts and toasted bread. clean, enjoyable, snappy with tight carbonation and medium- hop bitterness. this is a surprisingly good brown ale given the ratings, but it may benefit on tap and suffer in the bottle.

omhper (24776) - Tyres, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2010
Bottled, from Bozeman, MT. Clear nut brown, brief head. Syrupy nose with a bit of roastiness. Light-medium bodied with sloppy mouthfeel. Syrupy with notes of cranberies. Low bitterness. An unconvincing brown ale.

marcus (10047) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
