On tap at Blackstone brewpub. Clear brown with a thin brown head. Aroma of nuts and malt and mild toffee. Taste of toffee, light nuts and toasted malt with a lively mouth feel. tnbrewrater (10) - Alabama, USA - AUG 30, 2010
Sampled this one at the brewpub for comparison sake to the Bad Leroy Brown. It was a bit on the sweet side for tastes, but seems to be very much in line with the typical Nut Brown. I wish this would have been on cask as I think it would be better. It got better as it warmed up. The chocolate and nut flavors/aroma came out more. I can see how this is very popular with the masses. AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 26, 2010

Probably the darkest nut brown I have seen- this guys is holding an off-white head that is quite fluffy and has a great aroma of dry roasted almonds and toffee. Flavor is a great assortment of roasted nuts, toffee, and caramel. Very drinkable, and very dry. On Tap at the brewpub. travita (5008) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2010
