Poured into a tulip glass

A: Tawny brown with a tan one finger head that lingers. Frothy lacing.

S; Nuts, of course. Heavy malts, caramel, brown sugar.

T: Follows nose with a blast of nuts. Smooth, sweet, frothy. Could drink all day.

M: Medium with medium, creamy carbonation.

O: One of my favorites; also one of the first real craft beers I got into. This was the one that cost a bit more, but was worth the taste. Perfect with a chocolate chip cookie.

This was a very good ale, bordering on perfect for my taste. The smell was a wonderful sweet malted barley smell. Color was a dark brown coffee color matching its complex odor. The taste was an amazing mix of dark malt and a bitter sweet hoppiness that drove the flavor home. The feel in the mouth was silky and a after taste was a wonderful nutty like flavor that the title bears the ales name- Nut Brown Ale.
