Notes: Gentleman's Relish uses Maris Otter malt as the base, augmented with dark crystal and chocolate malts. Whole cone English hops are used throughout the boil, imparting their characteristic smooth bitterness. The beer is named after an Englishman's favorite snack, an anchovy paste, typically eaten on toast.

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. The constituents of its flavor, however, are more ragged than the English version, and it ends up being too sweet and therefore missing the complete experience of an English ale: gentle flavor, reasonable alcohol, and low biological impact. This brewery does great work but this beer is not one of their victories and, at $3.50 per, makes me want to spend the additional couple bucks to get the original.

Malty nutty taste, very drinkable.

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!

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"

I like turtles

Pours a beautiful dark brown with about an inch tan head that dissipated quickly. Light lacing. Smells of chocolate, coffee, caramel and nuts. Nice creamy mouthfeel. The chocolatey maltness hits your palate then the coffee kicks in. Nice hoppy background completes the flavor. Lone pint has another outstanding offering. Highly recommend!

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.
