This brew pours a beautiful dark reddish brown color with an off white three fingered head which lasts and strong carbonation. There is also thick lacing which remains on the glass until the end.

The smell is of strong malts and nuts as well as some pine resin. The nutty part of the smell gets stronger as the brew warms up.

The taste follows the nose with strong, mostly sweet malts, nuts and strong pine taste and pine resins which linger on the tongue. Slight astringent effect, no hops to speak of. Overall a deep earthy taste.

The mouthfeel is thick, nutt and earthy. The carbonation is also present.

Overall this is a smooth beer to drink. Maybe it was the smell of the pine and the nuts but this beer seemed to have a relaxing effect on me. I will pick up a six pack of this from the local deli tomorrow.

This beer pours a nice light brown color with one finger of head that falls to cover the beer. The nose has hints of coffee, maybe just a bit too roasty for my tastes in a brown ale. The taste is strong in the coffee notes. I like it, but I'm not sure how it works for the style. The feel is a touch thin, but its still a damn good beer. The drinkability is awesome on this one. I enjoyed this beer a lot and would like to see more if it again.

New 2006 edition, bottled on 09/07/06. Pours a clear dark brown color, nice carbonation, nice creamy tan head, lots of lacing afterwards. Scents of roasted malts, toffee/caramel. The taste is of roasted nutty malts, and slight toffee/caramel. Medium body. Very drinkable, this is a tasty Nut Brown Ale from this brewery. I'm glad to get a sixer from them, since it is only in the sampler pack. Highly recommended.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Samuel Adams nonick.

a: Deep clear ruby, finger thick offwhite head receded quickly to even surface foam and extensive lacing.

s: Mild malt

t: Caramel malt with considerable bitter hop balance.

m: Light to moderate. Strong carbonation plays off the tongue.

o: A good dinner or session brown, a bit hoppier than I like my browns, but a more than decent modern take on the style.
