    Poured like a cup of coffee with light tan head and great lacing. ARoma was of not good coffe and chocolate. Flavor was roasted malts chocolate and coffee, little burnt flavor in there, nuttyness showed up after it warmed. Was a little sweet for my liking.

    After having completed my beer, and being entirely satisfied and happy with my experience with it, I was suprised to find lukewarm reviews from my rater bretheren. I found this to be a better than average brown ale, because as we know brown ales can be mundane. The aroma was nice with enough roasted nut character, wet dirt, and sweet malts to make this very intriguing. Appearance was a deep brown color, thin off-white head which didn't last long at all. The coloring was great though. Mouthfeel I found perplexing, as I normally don't care for the carbonated feel in my mouth like I have 7-Up in there swirling around, which was the case in this beer. But with that said, it seemed to help this beer carry a lively Duvelesque quality to it. The flavor of the beer had enough hops and roasted/nutty malts to make me happy and it finished suprisingly dry. Pretty well balanced I thought. Overally, I'm glad I got a sixer of this because I'll be enjoying the other 5.

    Dark amber pour with ok head, no lacing. Burnt nut aroma. The flavor was burnt coffee grounds, tobacco and unsweetened chocolate with burnt sweet nuts. This beer just didn't appeal to me all that much.

    an vibrant copper red color, the head receded in a 'flash'. Got some sweet roasted candy like malts off the first sip, This tasted good. A smooth medium body though the mouthfeel feels relatively empty in the finish...... I would hope for something paler in a nut brown ale as far as the malts go. Tastes like sweet canned nuts and the bitter peanut skins. Though balanced toward sweet, there's fruit flavors like syrupy apricot, a spice taste like nutmeg. All in all its pretty ok

    Straight across the board average. had some body to it, but not a strong one (which seems characteristic of most brown's). sweet malty notes- coffe and caramel. little in the way of carbonation and hops. For a brown, pretty good. As an overall beer, a little sub-par

    Poured a coffee brown color with a tan head, solid lacing. The aroma was sweet chocolate and light coffee. The flavor was sweet milk chocolate, cocoa, and light nuts, finishing with a touch of roasted malts. With warmer temperatures, the balance was actually better than the initial sweetness. Still too tipped toward sweet and malty, but drinkable, ok.

    KCC 6. A very disappointing brew, considering the otherwise excellent source. To begin with, the presentation was sub-par. The neck label was off-center, crooked, and set with two extraneous question marks. What does this say about quality control? Brown, clear body. Good head fades fast. No lacing at all. Sweet, syrupy aroma. Sweet, nutty flavor and a mild hop character. Medium to light body. Leaves a sweet taste on the lips and a strangely metallic and slightly astringent aftertaste. Least favorite of the Green Flash clan.

    Very light brown in color with just a tad bit of head that clung to the edge of the glass. Weak in taste but I did detect a slight nutty taste to the finish. Nothing to seek out.

    Pours dark amber with small head. Average in most aspects regarding aroma, mouthfeel and flabor. Moderate carmel overtones with ample tannins. Although nut brown ales are not my favorite, this rates about average.

    Pours a medium brown with a thin white head. Mouthfeel is tinny. Flavor is very nutty and smooth with a bit of hops at the end. All around OK but nothing to write home about.
