Part of sampler flight at the brewpub. This is one of the brews I sampled though do not remember particulars other than I liked it. Hope to make it back to Watkins Glen for more. alobar (3915) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Chestnut brown color with aroma of nuts, roasted malt, and caramel. Nut flavor with roasted malt, hint of coffee, and caramel sweetness. Very nice beer. kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Tap. Pours a clear chestnut brown body with a small foamy beige head. The nose is really nutty, some hazelnut in here maybe? Rather sweet smelling with a little light-roast coffee. The flavor is sweet and a bit thin, but a little husky and grainy as well. A little light bitterness on the finish. Pretty nice amount of nuttiness coming through. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little sticky, with fine fizzy carbonation. Lingering sweetness on the finish. Pretty average for a brewpub Brown Ale.

Meh, another brown ale. Yawn. It was well made, but not very memorable. Brown color. . j12601 (13114) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2011
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a deep brown with a thin to medium sized beige head. Malty toast, malt and crisp toast notes. Medium bodied, smooth, nutty malt, toast. Smooth, with a crisp bitterness, toast. Nice and balanced. johnnnniee (4408) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 6, 2011

Pours a cloudy dark brown color with a thinnish tan head that dissipates quickly. Smells of roasted malts and coffee. Slightly nutty and earthy. Smells like this is going to be darker than a nut brown ale. Taste is roasted coffee, chocolate, nutty, earthy, malty. Finishes a bit on the dry side with a long lingering roasted grain. Very tasty, but almost porter or stout like with a lot of roasted grain going on here. Medium to thin body and level of carbonation. I really enjoyed this beer, but again its hard to call it a nut brown.

On tap at the Crooked Rooster Pub. Dark black pour with a tan head. Aroma is very roasty and slightly nutty with some sweet malts. Flavor is bitter and sweet at the beginning with a roasted malt middle and a bitter malt finish. pete4999 (1445) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 28, 2010
On tap at Tully’s in Amherst, NY. Very intriguing beer. Has the smell of a nut brown with the hazelnut, but also has some chocolate and caramel notes. Beer has the look of a stout, like a standard Guinness, only with a lighter-colored brown body. Still opaque though. Flavor has a ton of caramel, very sweet although somewhat dry finish. Had the creamy body of a stout but the taste of a sweet nut brown. Not bad.
