A - A dark, semi-transparent, chestnut brown. Upon initial pour head was immense, but soon transformed to a creamy froth. Some lacing.
S - Nut Brown smells great- full bodied and complex. Hits of malt, chocolate, caramel, and of course- nuts.
T - Chestnuts roasting on an open fire? Not quite, but still very good. Nut brown is composed mainly of walnut complimented by grain and malt. It is rather mellow and carbonated nicely. While it is not overly complex, it is certainly complex enough to keep my taste buds happy.
M - For the amount of carbonation, Nut brown is surprisingly smooth. That is not to say the carbonation is over the top, but it is what it is. Its consistency is substantial, but not chewy.
D - Nut brown is a little too drinkable. In fact, the only factor that keeps a 4 pack partially intact in one sitting is the price. A true session beer that is, indeed, worthy of praise.
All in all, this beer comes highly recommended as far as Brown ales are concerned. Its superior to many of its competitors, such as Newcastle, in every respect I can think of.

A) Clear mahogany brown, short off white head that turns lacy very quickly. Appears a bit flat but actually isn't.

T) Mild hops, toffee, sweet citrus fruit.
M) Ample carbonation, sticky sweet, mild bitter finish
O) An outstanding beer that is easy enough to find here in Chicago.
