A - dark brown high clarity. No head at all. Zero. Bottle is very drab.
S - sweet. Malty. Rich. Maple toast and pecan sandies.
T - pleasant. Nutty tones ( obviously ) sweet. See above aromas.
M - better mouth feel than the appearance would suggest. Silky and smooth yet mildly fizzy. A touch watery.
D - a pleasant delightful little surprise of a beer. It is very unassuming in appearance yet delivers well.

Aroma: Deep baker's chocolate character up front. Bordering on roasty. Dark bread crust and toast-like malt character. Moderately low earthy hop character. Clean fermentation profile.
Appearance: Mahogany pour, clear, and a low off-white head that retains well. Appears still in my dimpled stein.
Flavor: Big burst of milk chocolate character up front. More toasty and slightly nutty malt profile. There is a slight enjoyable sweetness that gets off-set by the earthy bitter hop character. Slightly smokey but very understated and in the background. Balance is nearly even. Finish is clean and dry. A pleasant chocolate-like after taste.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium high carbonation. A slight carbonic bite. No astringency or alcohol heat.
Overall impression: Wow! I have to admit, I find most Northern English Browns pretty boring. This was bordering on something like a beefy Brown with enough malt character to hang out with Brown Porters and possibly some Robust Porters. Enjoyed this immensely. Nice job.

A - 4.0 - Nice super dark brown color with a thick off white head that leaves a nice lacing.
S - 4.0 - Nutty, roasty, coffee, peanut butter, smoke.
T - 4.25 - Roasty nuttiness, coffee, smoke. Caramel.
M - 4.0 - Medium. Alc covered. Aftertaste is roasty nuttiness.
O - 4.0 - One of the best nut browns I've had, by far. Great beer and I'm proud to say it's from a small brewery right next door to AZ in NM!

Poured from 12 oz bottle into nonic glass
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, with a fingers worth of tan head that dissipates rather quickly.
Smell: Sweet malt, chocolate, caramel, toffee and biscuits.
Taste: Again more sweet malty flavors of chocolate, caramel and toffee. With a nice bready biscuit quality at the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-full body , very silky with a touch of bitterness at the end.
Overall: Fairly decent Nut Brown, very tasty, and very sessionable.

Poured into a pint glass. Brown with a good finger of dirty white head. Lots of bubbles visible.
Good smell of roasted malt and the "nutty".
Tastes of roasted malt, a little chocolate in the background and mild bitterness at the end.
Smooth texture, lots of bubbles, medium body.
A good brown ale. A little more of a creamy body would make this better for me, but it was enjoyable nevertheless.
