This beer poured with a very thick head. It had a slightly roasty aroma and flavor, which did not last long. This nut brown was not as good as the Pony Express, and on par with a Newcastle. Just not "nutty" enough for a nut brown in my mind.

Pours a burnt-caramel brown with a nice white head. Excellent lacing throughout the drink.

Smell of caramel and hops. Taste starts of sweet with a tart pungency in the middle. The hops slowly build into a powerful puckering bitter crescendo.

A nice nutty aftertaste developes later....
