    [Best served in a Dimpled Mug]

    Poured a rich Brown/Red color with a nice foamy head. The aroma was that of roasted caramel malt and coffee. Its mouthfeel was tremendous , smooth and creamy. tastes were malty with a chocolate coffee flavor. Overall a superb brown ale one of the best I have ever tried. Very true to the style!!

    Much like the Sammy’s Taddy Porter and Oatmeal Stout, this is EXACTLY what a nut brown ale should be. This is what home brewers and craft brewers compare their nut brown’s too but anyway off my soap-box.

    In a word perfect. It has the perfect reddish-brown body with a solid lacing. It smells… Nutty! It tastes… Nutty! It’s wonderful, a nice smooth and buttery mouthfeel with all of the hazelnut flavours dancing on your tongue. Simply a joy!

    A world class brew!

    I want another!!! Clear, dark amber with golden, red highlights. Very smooth looking creamy, off white head with very nice lacing. Smelled of roasted malt, walnut and caramel. Taste of walnut with slight hints of pecan. Mouthfeel was medium and chewy. The mouthfeel really hangs on the palate and finishes very dry and very smooth. More of a fall and winter beer for me, but definitely the best nut brown that I have ever tasted.
