3.78/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on date: 03/23/09. Into the Tyranena nonic glass...

A - Light hickory colored body with good clairity and amber tints. About a half-finger of off white head on top that reduces down to a spotty thin layer and no lacing.

S - Pine is quite assertive, with nice coco, pecan, grass (really nice Tettnang hop aroma here) and caramel notes backing it up. Manages to be rich without being to big.

T - A lot of toasty and nutty flavors present in this beer. Semi-sweet baker's chocolate and caramel were also noted, highlighted by some balanced esters. The hops do lend spice, grassy, and citrusy notes, and are just present enough to balance out the beer, and leave with a mild, nutty finish.

M - Medium body for a brown ale, with slightly more carbonation than I personaly feel is appropriate.

D - This is a solid example of an American Brown Ale. I would be interested to drink this side by the side Goose's Nut Brown Ale, because I feel that many of this things that are going well for this beer are present in the Nut Brown Ale as well. Expressive, but not overly assertive. Not quite what I think of when I think of a reserve beer, but a solid session beer none the less.

Draft at Churchkey in D.C.

The beer is dark brown with a thin beige collar. The aroma is fabulous. Vanilla, chocolate, malt, bread, a touch of booze. The taste is so smooth and easy going, it's hard to believe the aroma can be so powerful. Gene and I both marveled over the bold and assertive quality of the beer despite it's low abv. The power of an imperial brown ale or barleywine with session-like drinkability. Great stuff.

3.9/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Served on-tap at Iron Monkey in Jersey City, NJ

A: Pours a clear dark brown in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation and some dark reddish amber highlights. The beer has a half finger tall foamy beige head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Just shy of moderate aromas of nutty malts and toasted dark malts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of toasted dark malts with some light hints of fruity sweetness and some nutty flavors as well. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish that only lingers for a short amount of time.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: A very good example of the style and very enjoyable with all of the nutty flavors and aromas. Easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

On-tap at Iron Monkey, Jersey City, NJ

A: The beer is very dark brown in color. It poured with a half finger high beige colored head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of nutty malts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has lots of flavors of nutty malts along with slight hints of roasted malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked how this beer was packed with aromas and flavors of nutty malts. It is a very good representation of the style.
