Treated as an American strong ale due to ABV, this was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a rustic burnt orange to brown color with a deep haze around the body and a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Slim lacing running all around the glass.
The aroma had some brown sugar, nutty malts and toffee blending decently with some light expected booziness to it.
The flavor leans to the sweet side with the previously mentioned aromas blending nicely. Sweet boozy nuts in the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sipping quality to it. Carbonation feels good for the style and shapes a fair stickiness about it.
Overall, good as an American strong ale, but not as a brown ale. Still, I would come back to. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
Une dégustation offerte par Frank. Thx! Un liquide qui a la couleur d’un porter. Une feuille comme construction mousseuse. Un nez de grains rôtis un peu acides et de jus de torréfaction rendu froid. Un goût noir touché par une saveur cendrée. Un corps mince et flagada. Une finale courte et inoffensive. Rien à voir avec une brown ale. Pas catastrophique mais pas reluisante. 5/10. mcox90 (2088) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 16, 2013
22 oz. bottle. Pours dark brown with some ruby edges. Fairly frothy 2 finger beige head & some lace. Nutty, malty nose. Flavor is semi sweet with nuts, a hint of brown sugar and a dash of brown sugar. Mostly nuts though. Moderate to thin palate with active carbonation. Basic brown ale. egg (391) - USA - AUG 16, 2013
Bomber on 8/16/13. Pours medium to dark brown with little to no head. Not much on the nose, faint maltiness. No hops. Taste is toasted malt, malt sweetness, bready, a little vinegary. Very under carbonated. Picking up alcohol for a 9.5% beer. Was pretty excited for what appeared to be an imperial nut brown which I haven't come across much but was very underwhelmed.

Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a large, frothy tan head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is nutty and caramel malt, toast, dates and figs with spicy hops. Flavor is malt dominant with dark fruits, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Pours a two finger dark cream head that fades slowly leaving a good lace, some yeast left in bottle. Hazy mahogany color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Light roasted coffee nose and flavor is roasted coffee. Higher ABV totally hidden, is this really 9.5% ?? $6.99 for a 22oz bottle from Market Basket Concord, NH.

22 oz. bottle from the brewery. Color is deep brown with quickly falling, tan head. Light lace. Nose is nuts, adjunct malt and some sort of yeast. Perhaps lager yeast? But a aroma I can’t quite place. A lot of nutty flavor is present throughout the sip. Medium in body. Good moderate carbonation. ABV is only slightly noticeable in the finish. An easy drinking Brown Ale but what I’m a bit upset about is the price. I paid $8.99 at the brewery, guess I’m the sucker one this one. Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Bomber: Pours a clear orange with a medium off-white head, huge caramel and rich malts in the aroma, starts and ends lightly sweet, medium bodied with a malty ending. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 14, 2012
In short: A problematic bottle in so many ways. One of the worst beer I’ve ever had.puboflyons (3432) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 16, 2012
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed fresh the day of purchase from a New-Hampshire specialized beer store.
The look: Cloudy brown body topped by a tiny beige ring of foam.
In long: The repulsive nose is slightly nutty, way too much phenols, hospital gloves jumping in my nostrils, mint, chemical, medicine, other stuff… gross. Taste has soggy earth, graham cookies, cat fur, crushed aspirins, a mix bag of stuff found in the medicine cabinet, wet leather, more stuff. A sweetness sensation that is reminiscent of Aunt Jemima pancake syrup. Body is lifeless with sparse soft bubbles. I really hope this was a bad bottle because if the entire batch was like this then all bottles should have been recalled. And my bottle was in as good of a shape as I could get it, I picked it up from the fridge of Chase Street Market in Plymouth NH and attempted to drink it on the same day, I thought I’d be drinking a brown ale in prime condition, and instead I got myself a worthy entry in my all time worst-20. Truly awful, drained poured 80% of the bottle. If these guys don’t improve their quality control procedure the chances of survival of this new brewery are about the same as a black dude in a horror movie.
From the bomber. The pour is amber brown with a tremendous foamy, beige head. It really looks desirable. The aroma is sweet and nutty with licorice, toffee, and All Spice esters. The 9.5% ABV is impossible to sense. The body is medium to bold with an emphasis on the bold. The taste has an upfront sweetness with a medium to high bitterness playing up on the end. This is a very smooth, very enjoyable Nut Brown ale and one of the best I have had.
