3.05/5 rDev -13.8%
Pours brown with a large, fading off-white head.
Nose show nuttty malt, soft bready hints and a heap of chocolate.
Similar flavours with some toasty notes too along with fruity yeast-driven characters and a faint metallic hint.
Carbonation is overly high.

Bottle number 029 of 136.
Drank from my Bombardier conic pint glass.
A - Pours a nice clear, dark Amber/Copper colour witha nice Ivory head that slowly reduces to a film.
S - Rather nice figs and sweet caramel malts. Delicate but nice.
T - Nice nutty chesnut type flavour with some burnt toffee that floows into a sweet caramel, before finishing in the classic bitter way.
M - Light to medium body with medium carbonation.
O - Another well thought out brew from Nail Ale. Very true to the style and well worth a shot.

Tried on-tap at the Quarrymans Hotel in Pyrmont. Interestingly, I'd tried the Hughe Dunn Brown before the regular one.
Pours a ruddy, slightly cloudy brown colour, with a fine thin ring of off-white. It looks pretty light and a little bit listless in the glass. Fine carbonation at least and a few minor streaks of lacing. Looks okay.
Nose is rather bland. There's a touch of fatty butter coming through, with just a suggestion of sweetness. A little tartness perhaps tending towards a faint spice like nutmeg. Mostly it's just flat though.
Taste is very empty. Again, there's a hint of buttery slickness to it, some cake batter and a faint thin brown malt character—but very little overall. On the back is a slightly unpleasant lingering caramel, but not true brown malt character. Carbonation is restrained, at least.
Overall, this isn't great, and it's fairly bloating for its 4.5% ABV. It's really very sweet throughout, but leaves you with a sense of emptiness—it really lacks true flavour and definitely lacks complexity. I think it's only on par with the lower tier of brown ales out there.

This is brewed especially for WA Beer Week and dedicated to Hugh Dunn,this bottle is number 96 out of 136 and it pours a light burnt copper hue with nice carbnonation that leaves behind a frothy two finger head and some lacing,the smell is roasted nuts,burnt toffee,caramel and citrus,it has a light bodied well carbonated mouthfeel and has tastes of burnt toffee,light caramel,roasted chesnuts and finished with a dry tinge of citrus bitterness and overall for the price its nice but it could have a few tweaks in my mind to take it to the next level but very sessionable netherless.

Slightly opaque brown colour with a big, foamy, light tan head. Fair head retention.
Rich fruity and malty aroma. Raisins and caramelised malts. Great.
Like the aroma. Richly malty with a big dried fruit note. Really quite nice. Touches of earthiness too.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Suits the beer well.
A stunning beer really. Excellent flavour in a sub-5% beer. Really, really tasty.
