look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.5

Look: Opaque ebony in low light, ebony with glorious ruby red highlights in the natural light. The head is a thick creamy, very light tan. Lookswise, this is a tempter, though the head quick to fizzle out.

Smell: Hello, diacetyl. This unfortunate scent gets I the way of that nutty malt, but if you really like your nose in, toasted almonds, walnuts, and even macadamia nuts help to substantiate the beer's name. yes, there's some nice malt complexity, if you can overlook the d-word.

Taste: Deeply toasted malt with a layer cake of nuts--these guys really took "nut ale" as literally as possible! Peanuts, almonds walnuts, and those expensive macadamias again, they're all up on the palate. There's something missing, however. Earthy hops are present, yet faint, and could use a boost to balance things out. Or perhaps a bit of spice to distract from the slightly cardboard quality that sadly reminds one of an oxidizes Homebrew.

Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and body, with a semi-dry finish. A nice mixture of hearty and refreshing.

Overall: The focus on the malt complexity could be balanced, and even improved upon with some hop, or other flavor additions. The brewing-fine-wrong aroma is light, but still distracting. A good beer when all is said and done, but not one I'd go back to.
