punkeedo (498) - Covington, Louisiana, USA - MAR 23, 2009
2009 Tap at the Blackstone Brewery in Nashville. This nut brown ale was surprisingly complex. Very full-bodied, with hints of tartness and even raspberries. I felt like this led to an overall unbalanced and conflicting flavor. Caramel, nuts, and fruits dominate the beer. I found this interesting, but largely unappealing.

Poured a light tan head that laced a little with a clear amber body. Smells of caramel and lighly toasted malt. Tastes toasted with caramel. Some nuttiness on the finish.

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2009
2008 GABF. Pretty good example of the style. reddish brown clear with small white head. Bit thin and not a lot of nuttiness. Still quite a sessionable brew.

Butters (4059) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Fair example for style. Reddish clear brown and decent lacing. Aroma of toasted biscuit. As with some of their other beers, there is a good deal of alcohol burning despite being a relatively mild abv. Didnt pick up much nuttiness.
