Pours dark brown, opaque with an off-white creamy head. Tastes mild of malt with a hint of cocoa and a clean finish. Good session ale. ljay6880 (475) - , Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2011
5oz sample from a flight. Pour is muddy river water with an inch of off-white head. Nose is hazelnut, caramel, malt, toffee, and a bit of earth. Taste is a very nice account of the nose that ends with a spritzy toffee hop zing. This is a very nice brown ale that is really easy to drink! dfox670 (75) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2011

On tap at the brewery served in a 5oz glass. Pour was hazelnut brown with little head and minimal lacing. Nose was chocolate,malts and hazelnut.taste was caramel,chocolate,toasted malts and hazelnut as well all in all a pretty good brew.
first time thought it Best nut brown I have had. Real nut taste. Nice brown color. Carmel sweetness. Thoroughly refreshing. Subtle head.You can feel the carbonation on-tap but not overly done. Had again 5.5 years later and was rather average. Dark brown with a little white head, and lots of lace. Sweet finish, aftertaste, and aroma. Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - APR 8, 2009
Sampled at the BF Brewpub. Pours a muddy brown body with small off-white head. The aroma is slight nut, bacon and roast. The flavor is roasted, slightly malty, ad watered down bacon, but somewhat sessionable.

Growler, from brewery. Pours a rather dark clear brown body with a nice dark beige creamy head that had pretty good retention. Nice clean nutty malt nose with just a light touch of hops. Lighter notes of coffee and chocolatet. Very straightforward flavor, lots of nuttiness and light roast with some toasty and chocolate malt. Just a tinge of bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with nice soft carbonation. Very smooth, no signs of graininess at all. Overall, a very nice example of the style, very sessionable. kmweaver (3208) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Draft @ Bullfrog, labeled as "Nut Brown Ale." As a side comment, it looks like this "Brown" entry has become a placeholder for multiple brown ales (i.e., Blue Collar Brown, Nut Brown, etc.) and may require some distinguishment. Pours a murky brown color; minimal off-white head. A mild nuttiness and chocolate character in the aroma; reserved. Medium mouthfeel: pleasant viscosity, showing nuttiness, caramel, and milk chocolate upfront, balanced out by some slight mineral bitterness on the perimeter; generous malt character and quite satisfying. Medium, nutty and chocolate malt finish; some cereal. MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2004
Tap at Split Rock ’04. Billed as "Nut Brown". Cloudy brown with a tan head. Nutty roasty aroma and flavor. Malty and rich. Rather nice. Drew (2470) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Tasty brown ale. Medium bodied, a little clearer than some other browns, but really good lacing. Started with a nice bready nutty malt and ended with a thicker warming hop.
