Poured from 750 ml bottle into pint. Pours a nice brown almost clear color with nice white head. Great sweet malts and a deffinite nutty aroma. Taste is just spot on sweet nutty malts. It has a great bitter nutty finish to balance this brew out. Fantastically smooth and flavorful. This is what a nut brown should be.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: poured into a pint glass to a nice medium shade of brown with some reddish tint and a small but persistent off white head. decent lacing
S: smells slightly fruity and nutty with a nice caramel sweetness and slightly toasty
T: malty caramel sweetness at the front, a little toasty, nutty flavors as well, a little bit of fruitiness. swallow is more nutty flavor and a bit of hop bitterness
M: medium in the mouth with adequate and soft carbonation
O: an exceptional example of the style. easy to find, quite delicious, and well balanced as well

Pours clear dark brown with very little head.

Smell is malty, rich, sweet, nutty, dry

Caramelly sweet malts, rich nuttiness, balanced with light bitterness..very nice

Feel is light, well carbonated, very drinkable, sessionable, all that shit.

Great stuff!
