3.49/5  rDev -1.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

undated 12 oz bottle served in a Belgian snifter.

Pours clear, dark, red-brown with a small, weak tan head. Manages to leaves some lacing on the glass.

Aroma: quite mild, with hints of roasted nuts, wood, and brown bread.

Flavor: mild up front, but a rather bold, nutty aftertast taste with a clear contribution from hazelnuts. Lightly sweet until the aftertaste.

O: a solid brown ale worth seeking out if you fancy this style or hazelnut ales.

Filled from a growler station about two miles from the brewery. Enjoyed with company while brewing, the collective review of this beer was unanimous: River Rat needs to go back to the drawing board on this brown ale. The look of the beer was spot on but it lacked in taste, especially on the back end, where the mildly malty impression gives way to a, well, watery finish. This is by no means an indictment of River Rat, who has some excellent offerings; I was just expecting a little more.

Smells nutty, not a ton of hazelnut taste...the finish had a off taste to me
