A - Ruddy brown russet hued beer is cloudy and almost purplish red at times. The light brown head is small, but persistent. And swirling brings it up a bit. Some nice foamy lace is left on my snifter.

S - Walnuts, almonds, and cocoa powder along with deep dark dates and prune notes. This has some banana characteristics too. Yeasty, dark, dank, and also very lively and fruity. Outstanding!

T - Tangy plum and prune "dark fruit" flavors combine with deep woody and nutty flavors to make for a really complex and interesting brew! Banana, raisin, prune, plum, walnuts, molasses, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Wow. I'm super-impressed.

M - Medium bodied and gritty on the palate. Carbonation is restrained, and some very dry yeasty ...almost fuzzy roughness makes this a treat to sip (and occasionally gulp).

D - I'm really impressed with Lunar Brewing, and this was my favorite brew off all! Really, really quality stuff...this hangs with the best of

On tap into pint glass

A - Medium brown in color. Cloudy, unfiltered. Light white head that dissipates to a thin lacing which is retained. 3.75/5

S - Caramel sweetness. Dates. Raisins. Very little in the way of hop aroma. Focused entirely on the malt and yeast here. 3.75/5

T - Caramelized malt. Nutty with some fruitiness. Floral hop finish. Nice sweetness with a little bitterness on the back end. Very nice flavor layering. 4/5

M - Creamy with light carbonation. Lingers in the mouth somewhat as a thin coating but then disappears soon. Medium body. 4/5

O - Nicely done nut brown offering. Not too light and not too heavy. More flavorful than many nut browns that I have had. More fruity than I expected. 4/5

Pours cola brown with ruby highlights. Nice head after the pour but recedes to nothing pretty quick. Toasted and roasted malty goodness give the aroma an aire off faint chocolate powder. Great dry palate that lets the roasted and toasted nutty brown malts shine through. Oneof the best session nut brown ales I've ever had. I'm glad Lunr brought this recipe back.
