COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Mutton Buster combines a roasty flavor with notes of chocolate and nuttiness that creates a full flavored brown ale. While it is malt focused, there is mild hop bitterness with an earthy hop flavor. The Mutton Buster may be dark in color and heavy on the malt flavors, but it is sessionable enough to have a few any time of the year.

reebtogi (6341) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 1, 2017
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours an amber brown color with a small white head leaving spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted grains with some chocolate and earthy tones. Taste is a light roasted grain and earthy hop bitterness with a light chocolate malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent brew for the style, but could use a little more body.

djd07 (15341) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 28, 2017
Bottle at the brewery. Pours a clear amber with small beige head that lasts. The aroma is cocoa and toasted malt. Medium body, chocolate, roast, dry finish, good.

Brown-amber body with a thin, firm caramel-browned head. Nutty brown nose with a touch of alcohol. Medium-bodied, with a decent maltyness accented by nutty brown notes.

SODAK14 (382) - Rapid City, South Dakota, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Great brew here! The brown al is a nicely toasted malt and just a touch of caramel. The may be the best brown ale I’ve ever had. Definitely will have to check out more of Payette’s brews.

Amberish mahogany brown hue under a fluffy light tan head. Nutty combo of flavors that mix in cocoa malt and grainy toast and amberish malts and a touch of earthiness. Smooth and crisp slighty earthy nutty tone, gently sweet and slightly amberish with gentle cocoa and earthy bitterness.

andrewje41 (4156) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2016
Draft pour pint at Eureka! Pours a thick, muddy copper brown with a ton of head and lacing. Soft nutty malt aroma. Flavor is a spiced nutty malt, a bit of brown sugar like character. Smooth and rich chocolate. Pleasant brown ale here. Would love to try the coffee version, though I feel like I pick up a hint of coffee roast in the regular anyway. Refreshing for a brown. Not completely full in flavor, but not an issue. Good beer overall.

JDBaker11058 (2336) - Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2016
appearance: dark cola brown, a finger of creamy beige head, decent lacing. aroma: toasted brown bread, brown sugar, light caramel, toasted nuts, hint of leather and tobacco. taste: brown bread, hint of cola or root beer, caramel, toasted nuts, light leather. finish: dry, good carb, lingering toasty brown bread. notes: Solid, if unspectacular brown ale. Can from the Rare Beer Club.

floydslip (417) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 29, 2016
Ridiculously over carbonated mahogany colored beer that pours 1/3 beer and 2/3 beige head. Sweet nutty nose of candied almonds, brown sugar, and black strap molasses. Flavor is actually a bit dry with some toasted brown bread, semi-sweet cocoa, and a distinct nuttiness. Despite the over-sized head of foam, the body is somewhat creamy and soft. Pretty good, actually, if you can get past the pour.

3.3
voyageurmike (500) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2016
12 oz bottle at the Bourbon house in SLC. Clear dark brown with aroma of roasted malt. Medium body, roasted malt taste. Finishes clean. Unexceptional brown ale.

3.1
Iphonephan (7192) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - AUG 18, 2016
From a 12 oz. can. Pours a deep clear cola brown with a tan head. Aroma of toasted grain. Flavors of dank grass. Bitter roast finish.
