Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale

Smuttynose Old Brown Dog Ale, New Hampshire, brought back from Wisconsin, 6.5% ABV. I first had one in October, 2003, and here's what I said then.

Lovely brown color, with a slight, tannish head. 

Aroma; mild, with some nuttiness, though it develops as we go on, becomes more chocolately and sweet. 

Taste: rich, delicious, malty. Medium body, but large maltiness, minimum hops.

 Nicely balanced, easy-drinking, aflush with flavor, this is another in the Elite Corps of Brown Ales, Done Right!

 Yum, yum, I keep saying, and may I repeat....mmmm... 

I like it more now. Wish I brought a 6-pack home instead of one bottle.
