Pours a clear brown with ruby tones when held the light. The pour produces 1.5+ fingers of frothy, tan, shortlived head that leaves a slim ring of pasty lacing. Aroma is dark malt, fresh cut pumpernickel, milk chocolate & roasted nuts. Taste is full & robust: fronted by toasted brown bread, cocoa, roast & nuts with brown sugar & raisins at the mid-sip & finishing caramel & bitter with burnt hints & smoke. Aftertaste is burnt bread, bitter cocoa & caramel. Mouthfeel is medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation, smooth & creamy with little spice bite.

Bottle from Boise Co-op. Pours out dark, but clear brown with soft, silky beige head. Roast malts are featured in the aroma, taste is more malt with a touch of molasses sweetness. All rounded out with a some nutty undertones. Smooth, mildly bitter, easy drinker.

Pours to a nice buff head that lasts. Clear medium brown color. Aroma is brown sugar, molasses, bread, nuts, and a bit of alcohol. No hops discernable. Flavor is malty, crisp, slightly sweet and bready more than nutty. Clean slightly toffee finish. Mouthfeel is medium and "smooth". Low CO2 feels nice. A very good American Brown.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep brown color with a one finger head of cream colored foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a tiny bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell- The aroma of the brew is light overall, consisting mainly of some sweeter caramel and a little bit of roast. Along with these smells comes a little bit of nut and a hint of coffee.

Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter roasted malt flavor mixed with a little bit of a nutty taste. As the taste advances the roastiness decreases to some extent, all the while being replaced by more caramel sweetness and taking on a more rich nutty taste. With a little bit of a brown bread taste and a hint of grain that come at the end, one is left with a rather sweet and smooth nut brown flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is average and has a carbonation level that is actually a little high for a nut brown ale. I would have liked a bit less carbonation and a bit more body for the style, but even with that said the feel was not bad, and the thinner and more carbonated style did do a decent job for the sweeter caramel tastes of the beer overall.

Overall – An easy drinking and fairly sweeter nut brown. Not a bad brew overall.

Pretty monstrous head, fair lacing, a dark-brown but clear beer, nice looking brown.

Aroma and taste are pretty spot-on for what I'd expect from the perfect "nut-brown" ale. Roasty, nutty, toasty, bready, biscuit, with a light hops presence, just enough to give the beer a nice balance.

Drink wise it's pretty darn drinkable and I'm trying not to drink it too fast, because it's so good! Light to medium body, crisp carbonation.

It's a fine beer. Full sail once again impresses me.
