Bottle. Poured a brown/red color with a possible slight haziness and a small tan head. I loved the malty aroma of caramel, coffee, chocolate, and of course nuts. The beer had a medium body, thin texture, and a lively carbonation. I thought it had a bit of a sweet flavor to compliment the nuts. Overall I enjoyed this beer, as I have been on a bit of a nut brown ale kick as of late. I would definately recommend it (actually, I already have) and drink it again. nuplastikk (6289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
12oz bottle. Toffee brown orange color. Mild roasty aroma. Lots of dark malt flavor, very rich, borderline Porter territory. Some nuttiness does come through. MIld stuff, a lighter side of a full bodied brown. Very well done. The best Brown Ale from Kentucky that I’ve ever had. philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2010

Dark mahogany with decent, creamy orange-tan head / Smooth nose of roast barley, chocolate, coffee, and cream / Medium body, a touch watery but creamy and smooth, dry with just a hint of sweetness, excellent balance and finish / Somewhat cooked flavors of semisweet chocolate, roast coffee, nut, and cream / Solid, without being exceptional in any category.

Malty and true to the style. Sweet, brown, and tasty. Caramel and toffee with no noticeable hops or bitterness.

A very well rounded brown, the couple I kicked back with were very enjoyable. The pour produces an abundant aroma of chocolate and roasted nuts, a wonderful inviting scent. Dark amber color with a dense brown hue. Thick filmy tan head that settles to a nice layer that leaves a stringy trace of lacing. Medium, malty body that is nice and creamy. Real smooth and drinkable without getting too heavy, this could become a nice long session beer. Roasted malt flavors backed by some caramel, toffee, and a dash of cocoa. Hops seem non-existent within the flavor, which allows the nice blend of malts to take over. A well crafted Brown Ale, very nice from an often overlooked style.

Bottle. Brown pour with a small tan head. Fades very quickly. Nose is nutty and toasty with some cocoa notes and caramel. taste is spicy hops, nutty flavors, maybe chocolate covered nuts, cocoa and caramel. Perhaps some Bit O Honey, but it’s very faint. Body is creamy with moderate carbonation. Some toasty malts and nuts in the finish. Spicy hops come through here too with a touch of earthiness. Light caramel, bit of toffee and cocoa. Nice brown ale given that I don’t care for the style very much! Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Smells like sweet caramel and black coffee, flavor is a great chewy maltiness with a dry nuttiness. Probably the most potent nut brown i have ever had. Extremely drinkable and extremely refreshing. Fantastic. Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Nashville. shadey (2135) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2014
On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Nutty aroma and flavor. Just what I was expecting. It seemed to me that a lot of the small brewers at this festival were trying to be respectful of traditional european styles, but falling short of being interesting. This beer is an example of how to accomplish that feat. superspak (5600) - Michigan, USA - MAY 1, 2015
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 7/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, plum, apple, nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, light plum/apple, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a nice English brown ale. All around good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
