Appearance: Dark brown coloration, clear, slight effervescence. Thin head dissipates immediately. 3.5/5

Smell: Sweet and malty. Dark roasty aroma, strong notes of roasted malts. Hints of caramel. 4.0/5

Taste: Slightly nutty, sweet in the middle, very dry in the finish. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Thin, slightly watery. Low carbonation, no hops. 3.0/5

Drinkability: A decent beer but there are far superior examples of nut browns out there to choose from. Makes for an okay quaffer.3.5/5
