nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pint on tap. Chocolate with a lasting covering of foam. Mild aroma of cocoa, graham cracker and marshmallow. Tastes of cocoa, toasted walnut, graham cracker and a hint of espresso. Light-medium body is malty per the style, but well balanced and has medium carbonation. Nice session brown.

3.8
bluesandbarbq (33) - Oak Ridge, Tennessee, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Deep brown pour with a tannish head and some lacing. Nice aromas of toasted malts, chocolate, nuts and very slight hops. Taste is rich with a slight coffee and cocoa presence then a nice touch of hops in the end.

3.7
decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Black pour with tan head and lace. Burnt coffee, flavor with semi sweet malt, and a nice malt bitter. A tad thin but a very good beer.

ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2009
Appearance: Clear, dark brown body with a ruby-hued hints at the edges and capped with a small-sized, off-white head. Smell: Modestly roasty nose with notes of chopped walnuts, chocolate powder, and coffee. Taste: Chocolate and coffee blend with a taste of roasted nuts. Lightly sweet. All-around earthy taste. Very mild hop character and bitterness. Drying, nutty finish. Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-low carbonation. Drinkability: It’s a tolerable nut brown ale and one of the few offerings available at Blackhorse that wasn’t riddled with buttery diacetyl.

Draft sample at Knoxville Brewers Jam 2009. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Drinkable above average brew.

Sampled at the Knoxville Brewer’s Jam. Poured a dark brown with a one finger tan head. Aroma of chocolate and nuts. Flavor is nutty, with a good amount of bitter chocolate and a nice hoppy finish. Slightly light body, with good carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Really impressed with this beer.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Sampled at the 2008 Knoxville Brewers’ Jam. Brown in the glass with a creamy tan head that leaves some lasting and good lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel and nut. The flavor has caramel, chocolate, nut and a light roasty background. Light to medium body. Enjoyable.

3.2
Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2008
This is an ale and its brown. So far, so good. Aroma is a mix of chestnuts and hops. More nutty than hoppy in the flavor. Also rather bready and tosty. Not ba, actually. Sampled at the2008 Knoxville Brewer’s Jam
