3.15/5  rDev -16.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Look:Deep dark color unlike a typical brown ale, similar to a stout or porter
Smell: caramel, alcohol, toasted grain
Taste: cocoa nibs, medium bitterness, alcohol, light black licqourice, charred corn
Feel: light to no carbonation, syrupy, waxy

Taste and feel similar to a stronger heavier style, not reminiscent of a brown ale, seems more like an "imperial brown ale"

A credible clone of Sam Smith's "Nut Brown Ale," this brew starts out rich and slightly tangy-bitter but then mellows into a nutty warm flavor. Its richer tastes are a bit more ragged than the English version, but not by much, and it balances its internal flavors in a way that few New World brewers have managed to do. Quite tasty, and I hope to acquire more of it as soon as possible.

Bottle - gifted from a friend as a Pascha gift.

4 pack of 4 pints; a generous amount of the stuff!

Smooth brown ale with a pleasant aftertaste.
Chocolate, maltiness with a little bit of a sour kick to it.

I'll seek it out again!

Bottle courtesy of Bean:

Caramel sweetness, brown malt, toffee, herbal English hop flavours. Very well balanced.

Smooth, creamy, soft, medium-bodied.

One of the best brown ales I've tried from the states to date, to be frank. Highly drinkable without too much sweetness.

750ml bottle. No apparent code dating. Appearance: Deep dark brown, opaque, with slight touch of ruby on the edges. Thick pillowy khaki head and nice lacing. Aroma: Chocolate, nutty, toasty maltiness with some cherry and apple as well. Taste: Starts with a rich malt sweetness that is caramel, nutty and chocolatey, then shows complexity with some cherry and dark fruit notes. Dries out on the back end, and moderate bitterness is enough to balance the rich maltiness. Mouthfeel: Relatively heavy bodied for the style, with a surprising creaminess. Moderate carbonation. Finish: Dries out thru the finish and leaves a very nutty and toasty maltiness. Malty. Overall: A damn good take on an English Nut Brown. Malt character dominates, with a wonderful complexity of the typical caramel, nutty, toastiness, with a unique dark fruitiness. This beer definitely has a heavy body and creaminess that typical but browns, which makes the beer feel bigger than it is. Dries out and remains balanced despite the rich maltiness and body. Really well done.

Had on Nitro at the brewery. Smooth delicious sipper. Roastiness and depth of flavor. Some malt cocoa and coffee hints to the caramel base. More complex than I expected. Very pleasant exceptionally well made brown ale

Like other Lone Pint beers this is a treat! On draft into a shaker pint. Smooth, creamy mouth feel. Excellent light head with beautiful lacing. The taste was a bit sweet and quite malty. This is what I think an English brown ale should be. I will get it again sometime, like I do with most Lost Pint brews.

If you didn't know any better you would think you were accidentally poured a porter. Small Champlain like bubbles with a thick creamy head. Coco and coffee overtones with a strong malty base. Excellent beer. This little brewery in Magnolia has something special.

Pours a hazy brown. Nice fluffy off-white/tan colored head that hangs around for quite awhile.

Smell is slightly nutty, with decent caramel smell. Toffee is present as well. Fairly standard smell for the style. As the beer warms a slight coffee smell comes through.

Taste begins slightly sweet with a nice roasted almond and hazelnut. Caramel malts begin to dominate. Toffee moves in mid-palate. The nutty flavors dominate the finish and linger.

Mouthfeel is fairly creamy, but I enjoy it quite a bit.

Overall a good beer. In a style that doesn't get much love I do really enjoy this beer.

Pours a dark brown with a thin foamy head. Very little head retention but decent lacing. Nutty aroma that is slightly chocolate. Nutty dark malty taste with slight bitterness and a somewhat chocolate aftertaste. Tried this one at a concert and would like to try it at the brewery to see if this rating changes.

A: medium to dark brown, quite cloudy. Poured into a pint tumbler with one finger head that quickly dissipated.

S: roasty with a slight hop aroma. No sweetness to the nose.

T: I haven't had an English brown ale for some time, but the Americanized version is expectedly drier with a very slight hint of hops. That's the case here. The primary flavor that hits you is the dark malt, similar to a porter, but lighter up front.

M: it's summer, and I've switched over to Kolsch, Hefe, & IPA. However, this brew has a somewhat lighter mouthfeel and is quite drinkable on a hot summer day. Carbonation is on the low side, but the cloudyness gives it an interesting and pleasant mouthfeel. It has a pretty dry finish that hangs around for a while.

O: I'm impressed with Gentleman's Relish. It's a good drinking beer, regardless of the season. I couldn't find much wrong with it. This would probably pair well with brisket or other smoked meat. My only suggestion would be to take the ABV up a little over 7.

on tap at 3rd Floor in midtown Houston

L: black ... or almost; just a hint of brown; nice solid tan head with some stick

S: piney hops on top of malt; super sweet

T: hoppy sweet; darker than typical brown ale but with the same nutty flavor and malty sweet finish; there's plenty of hops up front; burnt finish at times

F: good carbonation but nothing exceptional

O: a cool, Americanized version of the English style with a lot of hop bite; what makes it work for me is the fact that it's malt backbone helps it remain true to the English version ... lots of malt sweetness. a very interesting brew and one I wouldn't mind trying again.

On tap at Moon Tower Inn.

A: Pours a dark brown color. A two finger white head forms, and recedes. Light lace is left behind.
S: Toasted malts, light grains, some caramel sweetness, and a nutty finish. Not bad at all.
T: Follows the nose with toasted malts, bread and biscuit, grains. Some sweetness and a distinct nutty flavor. Simple but enjoyable.
M/D: A medium body and carbonation. Fairly smooth and soft. A nice beer to drink. I finished the pint, and quaffing a few if no other options are available.

I do enjoy this. No frills, and easy to drink. Just not a lot going on for me to come back to often if there are other options. Still it went good with my dog from Moon Tower.
