The Dan Journal #131. Tasted 11/8/07. 22oz bomber. Murky brown hue. Buttery cocoa aromas. Dark fruits. Too fruity, not enough nutty. Gets slightly better as it watms. Syrupy and ample notes. Cinnamon and cocoa. Not too bad!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An aroma of nuts with a hint of caramel. A dark brown pour with a light tan head. Nice semi sweet malt flavor a bitter that is a bit less than pleasant-nutty. A bit thin and a bit fizzy. Not a bad beer but needs some work for sure.

From decaturstevo at the Cincinnati RateBeer Gathering. Looks like a cola, Smells like flowers, oily with thin head, lacks flavor; strong finish firmly concludes opinion: not impressive.

More of an alcholic aroma than nutty. Flavor is slightly nutty, strong and malty. Smoothes out like sheets baby. Big thanks to decaturstevo for sharing at the Cincinnati Ratebeer Gathering.

8/03/2007: Bitter Root Nut Brown Ale is a dark brownish red color with a frothy tan head. The aroma is mostly brown sugar and caramel. The flavor is fruity with some dark maltiness and a slightly nutty quality. It is a decent Nut Brown Ale overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle, via kyzr. Pours a clear dark brown body under a smallish fizzy beige head that fell to a patchy partial covering. Aroma is of nutty and husky grains, some minimal hoppiness, and a touch of alcohol. The flavor is as thin as the usual Brown Ale. Just a dry nuttiness with a distinct crystal malt graininess. Finishing rather short and slightly sweet. Mouthfeel is light bodied, kinda thin, with moderate fizzy carbonation. Another nondescript Brown Ale.
