He'Brew "Messiah Nut Brown Ale"
Shmaltz Brewing Company - Clifton Park, NY USA
Nut Brown Ale (ABV 5.5%)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.15/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a dark chestnut brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that receded at a quick steady pace, down to a very thin film and medium collar with good runny lacing.

The aroma was of roasted dark malts, light resin hops and an earthy leathery yeast with notes of toffee, chocolate, coffee and a decent nutty presence.

The taste was rather malty with a touch of chocolate and a nice toffee sweetness from the start, progressing with a slightly bitter coffee taste and a mildly roasty nutty finish. The flavor lasted an average time after the swallow with a slightly bitter roastiness left behind.

Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body and watery in texture with a medium carbonation.

Overall this was a decent enough Nut Brown with all the taste you would expect but was really nothing over the top, to sum it up it was pretty basic for the style. That being said it still was a good drinkable and tasty brew…
