Nut browns have never appealed to me. Perhaps all the styles have been focused at mass markets and not very interesting.

Beer Advocate B+
This one was a refreshing change of events. The nose was roasty and slightly nutty. I was pleasantly surprised by the abundance of caramel, roast, bourbon, wood and pecans with every sip. Your mouthfeel was medium and slightly creamy. I think there was a little cocoa powder thrown in there.
It was clean with dry pecans, wood and bourbon. Sadly it faded quickly leaving a slick coating.
Alcohol Content -1 4.7%
This should count as a +2; a beer this flavourful with such a low ABV is unusual.
This is one nut brown I would buy again and not just to get the fancy bottle.
Ingame Enhancement +1
This was the perfect beer to make me forget about the Big Rock Lager.
All of the beers from Howe Sound have been excellent; this was no exception. The flavours were unexpected and welcome: wood, bourbon, pecans and creamy caramel.
