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. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a reddish brown. Caramel malt aromas with a hint of nut. Flavor is bittersweet chocolate with some smokey nut aftertaste. gws57 (1276) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Got this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. Clear, dark brown pour, slightly bubbly with an average white head. Chocolate and coffee with notes of orange and spice, not sure where the nuts were but it lacked a lot of complexity. Not bad. HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 20, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2007 Oh my. Like the woman in the old commercial asking ’where is the beef" I kept asking ’where are the nuts". This beer is devoid of any nutty flavor, or any distinct flavor in particular. Very thin and watery, no aromas and all in all very disappointing.

Too much tobacco and not enough chocolate, with a relatively thin body. But not as bad as its average would suggest. Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Not impressive in the least. Pours a coffee/cola from the bottle with almost no head or lacing. Aroma is so slight you almost missed it. With a body like this, you should pay Charles Atlas for some advice on lifting. There isn’t any flavor. I sound too much like Simon, but there’s nothing good to pass on about this one. steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Pours light brown with smallish head. Nose has a hint of malt with mild sweetness. Thin body and mild caramel flavor. Finishes without much excitement. thegreenrooster (4633) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 17, 2005
Pour is a dark brown with a small white head. Aroma is of dark malts and i get some hops in there. Flavor is more on the malty side with a touch of nuts. Over all one dimential with the malts and nothing else. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Very dark ruby body that approaches a brown color. The thin head is slightly yellowish in color. The aroma is peanuts with some light toast and a little bit of caramel. The taste is light with some old toffee and a little bit of old coffee. Seems somehow stale, but not like cardboard oxidation. Needs a little more malt to make this interesting.
