New bottle format just released.
A: Pours dark brown with a nice big fluffy and creamy tan head. Fades very very slowly, leaving a veritable wall of lacing behind.
S: Strong nuttiness (hazelnuts) as well as a wonderful toasted malt. Brown sugar and maybe even a bit of cocoa? Just a touch of caramel.
T: Lots of hazelnut and toast up front. A little brown sugar and then fades with a lightly bitter toffee, coffee and cocoa. Very creamy throughout.
M: Fairly thin, only 5%. But nice and creamy and smooth.
O: Great English brown ale. Relatively light but oh so creamy and smooth makes it super drinkable. Great balance of flavors. This might vie for the throne that is Samuel Smith Nut Brown.

22 oz bottle, 2014 vintage, served in a wine glass.
Pours with a very durable tan head that leaves excetional lacing. The body is very dark red-brown, clear but almost opaque.
Aroma: the weak point. Nutty malts with some faint off odors.
Flavor: Moderate strength nutty flavor with dark grains and a impression of dark bread. Good, lingering malty aftertaste.
O: a decent nut brown but the weakest offering I've had from this fine brewery.

Appearance is brown with copper edges and a finger of fluffy beige head that stuck around for eternity and left thick lacing behind. The nose is nutty and bready. The flavor follows the nose but it is not as bold as the very best beers of this style. The body is not quite hearty but not thin either. The finish was very mildly dry and bitter.
Serving type: on-tap
