Saw this on tap at Redhook,asked the waitperson what it was. She said it was their nut brown ale, double malted. Gave it a try, and it was worth it. It was served in a plastic cup because there was a music festival going on. Anyway, it was a medium brown color with a small head. Very sweet, malty aroma. Interesting taste: toffee, warming spices, a little hops, and a faint hazlenut . I liked this beer a lot, although I knocked down the drinkability a little because of the bit of nut taste.
