Alright, the good stuff in the evenings tasting, thanks to Jerc for sharing some of these! Dark brown pour, big slightly off white head. Nice nutty root beer like aroma. Medium body, avoids the watery trap so many North American Browns fall in to. Solid malty brown ale malt taste with a good dose of nuttiness at the end (it really lingers). Excellent, one of the best browns I have ever had.

Bottle. I have been intrigued to try this one just because of the name which I think is quite cool. Dark brown - mahogany body, with a decent sized off white head. (3+) Dominant yet restrained roasty aroma with mild chocolate and malt undertones. Flavour is moderately roasty again, with the chocolate slightly more prominent in the flavour. Mild nuttiness throughout becomes more distinct and more clearly hazelnut in the finish. Medium bodied palate. I am suitably impressed, quite yummy. Thanks for the trade JPDIPSO.

Thanks to lamas for the bottle. 12 oz. bottle. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a half-inch head that was gone within a minute or two. Slight lacing. Aroma is pretty bland, mainly malty with a touch of nuttiness. Flavor is overwhelmingly nutty and roasty. A hint of chocolate is also present. A nice level of carbonation, although a little on the thin side. Probably the nuttiest of the brown ales that Ive tried.

05.10.05 12oz bottle thanks to MrFacto. Pretty teak-brown with lazy, lofty, lacy tan head. Aromas are mildly grassy, very dry wood. Flavor is deeply nutty and fairly complex. HInts of iron, light bitterness, maybe a touch of tobacco. Nothing about the flavor or aroma really jump out, typical of what I usually think about a brown ale. Nevertheless, this one is nicely done and it surely grows on me as I drain the glass. Thanks Matt!

Rich bronze colour...I found this to be nutty and bitter, not much sweetness or body.

Verry nutty which makes this brew a great one to drink with dinner or lunch or whatever. It is just good with food.

A great thanks to rater Wawood for sending this Wisconsin native down south.

Poured a natural tobacco leaf amber brown body and a weighty tan head. The aroma certinaly does bring nutty notes of almond, walnut, and lite suggestions of hazelnut. The flavor is lightly roasty sweetness in the beginning & middle, then a more rounded finish with a touch of bitterness. Something reminds me of broiled butternut squash strange, right? Nice notes of toffee, as it appears, tobacco man I havent had a filthy yet juicy wad of chew in several years and I still remember that spicy / smoky / vanilla / black pepper flavor. His truly is a nice brown ale!

Very clear and reddish brown with little head. Very sugary aroma with a hint of chocolate. Sweet and clean in flavor with some roasted caramel and hazelnut and a bit of chalkiness. Somewhat watery.

a bronzish color....aroma of caramels, sugars and spices; flavor is similar, adding nice roasted malts and faint hops....appearance and palate subpar...not as appetizing as expected
