look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

600 ml bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A two finger whitish brown head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy copper brown color with good vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Nutty, fruity, caramel, sweet, bready, toasted, and a little coffee.

Taste: Sweetness comes through on the palate with the nuts, fruitiness, coffee, chewy grains, and some bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, a little booze, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: 2nd beer from these guys and quite happy with each one. I wish more of these made it up here to Boston. Only a small handful of stores has them in stock. Little do people know how good these beers are.

This one pours a clear brown color with a thin weak off white head that settles fairly quickly and leaves no lacing down the glass.

The nose is dominated by he sweet malt. There is a touch of nuttiness and some sour notes. kind dull all around though.

The taste is an odd bitterness as if the nuts offer up some additional bitterness in addition to the hops. The flavor is off balanced. not great

The mouthfeel is adequate.

Overall not a very good beer and rather disappointing. I was expecting something better and more interesting. I recommend passing on it unless you want the novelty of brazil nuts in your beer.

Good initial head with plenty of spots on the glass for lace. Amber to brown for color. Hard to ascertain the cloudiness level.

The smell is sweet and a bit like freon (from a refrigerator). The latter being quite distracting.

The taste is overly sweet for a brown ale. There's the taste of molasses in the background. The swallow and aftertaste is sugary and cloy. Full body with a diminished carbonation level.

Overall, this is soda pop lover's beer--overly sweet without any hop balance.

Brown copper color with a two finger beige head with short retention.
Nice aroma of cocoa, lots of nuts, bread malt, a hint of vanilla and caramel.
Predominant nutty flavor with earthy and herbal hops, some spicy yeast and a bit of dark fruits. Castanha do pará is clearly noticeable here. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation, a slightly creamy sensation. Alcohol of 8% abv is superbly hidden.
Beer with great execution, not super complex but does well the job. Castanha do pará bitter nuts matched perfectly with the beer, giving complexity to the bitter profile. If you like these nuts it is well worth it to prove this.

All Colorado beers I've tasted have the same problems: they are transparent, light and tart. Cauim, Appia, Indica and this one have these as features - and I don't like it! Only Demoiselle escapes from this rule.
All right... except from that, Berthô have a nice appearance, of a browny/coppery color and an ok foam.
Smell is full of brazil nuts ("castanha do Pará") and you can also feel quite well the alcohol.
Taste is not malty as an american brown ale should be, yet you can feel some roasted and caramel malts. Brazil nuts are less evident and there are some tart tones.
There's also an aged cachaça nice tone in the aroma and taste.
And, as I said, this beer is really light. What doesn't balances the alcohol.

Penny copper colored pour with an off-white head. The beer has a really interesting smell that seems to be half alcohol and half nut. The flavor is mainly nut and malt based with a bit of caramel and bread also present. Finishes with a sweet nutty flavor.
