Malty and nutty aroma. Pours cloudy brown. Nutty malty flavor with a solid hop presence. I get hints of coffee in the finish too.

nearbeer (5558) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 10, 2007
12 oz, bottled 5th week of May. Beautiful deep mahogany, with ruby highlights. Medium-sized, creamy head that lasts. Spicy, earthy molasses, cocoa, and toasted nut aroma. Flavor is incredibly balanced, and fairly complex for a brown. Mostly dry toasted nut; some cocoa; slight coffee; sourish, earthy and metallic molasses; delicately bitter herbs on the finish. Medium-bodied, creamy smooth, slightly watery and refreshing palate. Excellent brown ale that could be a great session beer.

It is brown. Smells a like caramel. No nut flavor or smell to be seen. Way too much carbonation. This beer foams like crazy in your mouth and interferes with any tasting much.

Good color, good flavor. Like other posters, not much aroma and the flavor doesn’t last very long. An average nut brown.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2008 Appearance: Pours a clear, dark brown with a dense, off-white head. Smell: Sweet-smelling, enormously nutty aroma. Hints of cocoa powder. Taste: The taste is initially semi-sweet, but incredibly nutty and toasted all the while. Again, there’s that hint of cocoa. Just enough of a gentle, subtle bitterness on the dry finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: I’ll tell you what, it was surprisingly nice, at least on-tap.

Really not much aroma but a solid dark color. Flavor is a little toasty and a bit nutty. Nothing to write home about; the finish is nutty but also a lttle thin at the same time.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Bottled. Beer is clear, dark mahogany brown. Head is off-white, frothy, initially small, rapidly and almost totally diminishing.<P>The aroma is malty with moderate notes of husky toasted grain, light wort and toasted nuts; Hoppy with light notes of herb; Yeasty with a light note of sticky dough.<P>The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly acidic with an average-length, lightly acidic, lightly sweet, trace bitter finish.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P> Oddly tangy and raw.

Malty. Really nice color for a brown. Nothing spectacular, but very drinkable.

alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Good name; not so good beer. Brownish color. Hit the style in flavor, but was pretty bland. Could have been more assertive.
