look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz. bottle, best before Mar.12, 2012.

Appearance: Full of tiny bubbles racing up a dark amber body (semi-clear). Head is thick and lasts a decent amount of time. Some coating on the sides.

Smell: Lots of caramel malt as well as nuts and their shells with a bit of toasted nuts also.

Taste: Some caramel but what i really like is the flavor of chestnuts toasting on a wooden stove. The flavor is not necessarily intense but feels authentic. Some grilled sesame seeds in there as well.

Mouthfeel: Starts well with a big accent on the malt and good carbonation but suffers as it warms which makes it average.

Overall: Pleasantly surprised by this one. A decent offering worth trying.

Im starting off the year of BMC reviews with Leinie's Fireside Nut Brown.

The bottle produces a brown liquid. Decent carbonation, but nothing really special.

Smell is very BMC-like, plus load of dry nuts. Very nutty to the point of being off-putting.

The taste is awful. Very dry and nutty, like dried cashews and peanuts. The malt feels dry and kind of like dirt. Well mud to be exact. Ends slick and sweet.
