Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Murky brown with a tan head and big, spotty lacing. Nutty and slightly bitter with some roast. Flavors are much the same as the nose, but more bitter. Cloying finish with a heavy mouthfeel. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUN 24, 2006
Draught at Tyler’s in Durham, NC. Ruddy brown color with thin tan head that laced the glass. Malty brown sugar aroma with a touch of sprucy hops. Dry and earthy with subdued chocolate flavor and a mild roasty finish. Crash (532) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Poured dark brown with a little lacing. Aroma was malty towards bread. Initial flavor was acidic with a stale coffee finish.
GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Pours dark coffe brown with shallow creamy froth. Smells of fresh dark malted coffee. Medium nectar weight with ample residual effers. Flavors of leather are forward with coffee, coaco, charcoal, with a slight nuttiness. Dry with a nice mellow bitterness on the finish. Well ballanced.

Very disappointing. I’ve sampled a few good things from SKA but this was awful. Foul aroma of gutters after a rain with a taste to match. Just a bad beer.

Whoa, the aroma is smack-you-in-the-face bad. lol. like a sewer hole in NYC where the steam rises up and you try to stay away from it cause you’re afraid you’ll smell all day if you walk over top of it... that kind of bad.
The appearance is thin and watery with some light brown/amber colors. The flavors arent too bad though. Some maple syrup and nutty flavors, along with some toffee and chocolate undertones. Lots of carmel, decent malts. Mouthfeel isn’t bad but it’s way overcarbonated and thin. Shag (2981) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2006
WTF is with the aroma on this. It smells like I took Rover for a walk to do his business and I bent over to smell the results. Worst aroma ever! A reddish brown appearance with a light head. The flavor contains some caramel and a hint of dark chocolate. Watery thin palate. Despite the cool gangster graffiti looking label, this beer is worthless. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 20, 2006
Nice chestnut body and fizzy tan head, but the aroma promises more than is delivered in the taste. Chocolate, sweet malt, smoked almonds... but a fairly bland flavor of dull malts, light brown sugar, and a faint nutty bitterness in the finish.stoutchap (423) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2006

Nut Brown? You’re nuts! Poured ok, looked like any other brown ale. A slight skunk in the nose, and a tangy flavor. No complexity and no nuts. DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2006
Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 01/10/2005
Mid brown amber coloured and slightly rich on the palate with a fruit aroma. Some dryness in a nutty flavoured finish.
