Kauge (1898) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2015
Tap at the Rex in Toronto. Mahogany brownish with a small off-white head. Both aroma and flavour pleasantly nutty (toasted nuts), sweetish, with quite some leafy, herbal finishing bitterness. Pretty crisp in the mouth, body around medium. Subtle notes of fresh ground coffee. Enjoyable impression.

KoNrRiI (1442) - rhus, DENMARK - SEP 21, 2015
0.473 can. Clear, brown color and a small, brownish head. Aroma of malts, wood, nuts, bread, flour, and a delicate hint of fruits. Taste is also malty, warming, nutty, bready. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish comes with a slight hoppy touch which gives it a bit less sticky character. Overall quite a nice beer, not the crown jewel but good enough.

UXO (1861) - CANADA - SEP 13, 2015
Appearance: clear amber-brown with one finger of rocky light tan head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Aroma: nutty, mild chocolate and coffee, caramel, grassy, pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter, light tart. (7/10) Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, off-dry medium duration slightly tart finish. (4/5) Not bad at all for a nut brown. Not a style I tend to prefer, but this one is nicely balanced, with a little bit of grassy and piney hops, and even a little tartness. Slightly more complex than your typical nut brown. (15/20)

Randy4Beer (513) - - FEB 2, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2015 A filtered, cherrywood brown body is capped by a moderate slightly off-white head. Aromas of nuts, lightly roasted malts, mild chocolate. Medium palate. Tastes of light nuttiness, creamy milk chocolate, and a hoppy, ever-so-slightly bitter finish. Dont see myself ever reaching out to grab one of these again, but as a one-shot experience, it was a fairly enjoyable brew.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
650 ml bottle from the LCBO. Appearance: Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma: Brown sugar, caramel, malt, hints of pine resin, walnuts. Flavours: Coco, milk chocolate, toasted malt, brown sugar, bit of a bitter hop like finish. Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation. Overall: A nice very sweet brown ale. I love sweet beers so I had no problem with this one but it may be a bit a sweet for others. All of the components came together nicely.

Ferris (14770) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle - Hazelnut and caramel with some toasted notes. Clear dark brown with a light beige head. Toasted malts and hazelnut, finishes with a nice sweetness. Not an exciting style but a good example.

maley1 (1233) - Calgary, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
On cask. Dark mahogney colored pour with small off white head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel and nuts. Taste of roasted malts, toffee, slight chocolate, slightly nutty and very faint hop finish. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, lower carbonation, nicely balanced, good brown ale!
