Poured a copper color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toffee, nuts and faint floral hops. Taste of citrus fruits, grassy hops, mint leaf, light smoke, caramel malts, some diactyl (not bad though), and more nuts. Thanks weeare138!

Pours a medium chestnut color with a quickly fading 1/4 inch head. Smell is of peanuts and malt with a citrisy undertone. An understated nutty flavor with a hint of brown-sugar that finishes with orange peel. A nice, easy-drinking beer that calls out for another.

Thanks to GV for the bottle! Appears a glowing brown with a 1 finger off white head that fades quickly. Tiny scatters of lace. Smell is of roasty nuts, light hops, & slightly sour malt. Taste is of the same aromas. Mouthfeel is creamy sweet and sour with an odd sour note that seems to linger at the end.

bottle-pours mahogony amber with a small off-white head. quite a bit of hops for a brown in the aroma with lots of peanut and almond notes. lightly phenolic fro some reason. lots of nuts on the flavors wtih a touch of spicy hops. fairly bitter for a brown ale. carbonation is proper and the body isn’t as thin as most of this genre. I would say one of the better brown ales out there.

nice and a little nutty(kinda like me) but i have to say i still prefer the spotted cow.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Bright copper pour with a small skim of light tan head that mostly fades away. Clean, lightly toasty carmel aroma, earthy mild hops, just a hint of butterscotch; simple, but rather nice. Nice nutty carmal flavors. Not overly sweet, though there is a bit of sweetness in the finish. Clean palate. Apart from their mind-blowing fruit beers, one of my favorites from New Glarus, and the nicest American-made brown I’ve tasted. Understated, but full flavored and well balanced. I’m wishing I picked up a six of this, instead of just a single. Ah well. Next time I get to WI.

Unusually huge head for the style. Hazelnut undertones...a nice change. Generally a pretty good brown...but that might be damning with faint praise!

I have tried a number of nutty beers but this one tops them all! If this is on tap at a bar or restaruant, I always ask for it! I love it served real cold (which I typically don’t like) and in a tall glass! Give me more please!

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2005
From the bottle this pours a light & clear nutty brown with a short white head. It’s got a roasted barley smell with some nuts and some earthy hopping. Medium-to-light bodied, it has a sweet caramel flavor with some roasted malt, nuts, and a light hop bitterness. Not earth-shaking, but a decent enough drink.
