Good stuff. On-tap at Mellow Mushroom, Lexington, KY – around $2 a pint!
Dark brown pour that suffers from being served too cold, but after the beer wams all the attributes start to be enhanced and come through nicely. The temperature affected the pour making it look rather flat. After warming and with a little agitation we get what the beer should resemble Lovely deep color and excellent head and lacing.
Lovely nutty sweet nose. A little edgier than say, Rogue Hazelnut, but it has any of those great characteristics. Sweet nut nose and initial tastes, loads of sweet malts and a finish that is pleasing both in terms of the taste and bitterness. Very tasty, very moreish.
The nutty brown ales live and die by their mouthfeel and their ability to hold together the whole drink. Watery brown ales are a disaster and you need body – this one does the job well.
Delicious once it warms, a really nice offering.
