Presentation- At the Tap Room in a Pint Glass

Appearance- Nice dark brown/copper color

Smell- Roasted Barley and Hazelnut notes, excellent smell

Taste- Nice sweetness to complement the nutty flavor. Almost like a sugar almond flavor

Mouthfeel- Nice carbonation, medium body, with a smooth nutty finish

Drinkability- One of my favorites from this brewery, really nicely done. Easy to drink, nice flavor, and smooth finish.

Growler picked up at the brewery.... We braved 90 minutes of white out blowing snow to get to the taproom in Belt... Glad we did... A lone brewer greeted us in the midst of a nasty storm.

Pours clear deep chestnut... okay lacing and retention.

Nose is nutty and definitely brown with something that I expect is hazelnut extract... it is just tooo nutty to not have extract.

Flavor shows the same... a little malty with a very present hazelnut essence.. very tasty, but seems too much.

Thanks to the homeboy who opened up the brewery in the middle of a blizzard, but we do honestly appreciate it.

08/12/06- Had on tap at the Railyard in Billings, MT.

Presentation- From the tap into a standard pint glass.

Appearance- Copper-dark caramel color pour. Smaller 1/4 inch head leaving behind light lace.

Smell- Extreme toasted caramel malts and very nutty. Can't get a better scent per style. Dead on.

Taste- Like the scent, very nutty with cashews and walnuts coming to mind. Mildly sweet medium toasted malt with a bitter hop bite.

Mouthfeel- Average carbonation and a very large nutty aftertaste.

Drinkability- Fits the style dead on. Could use a touch more sweetness. Otherwise a damn good nut brown. Super impressed on this one.

A: Had on tap at Railyard in Billings. Poured a dark brown color, small head that dissipated quickly, no lacing.
S: Smells very stron of hazelnuts and vanilla flavor.
T: Much the same as smell, very strong flavors of vanilla and nuts. Much stronger taste than most brown ales that I've had before.
M: Carbonation was moderate to heavy
D: Great tasting brown ale, maybe a little over the top sweet but its better to be a little too flavorfull than not enough I guess.
