COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith Nut Brown is a tribute to one of our favorite British styles. Deep mahogany in color, its rich, malt-forward flavor profile balances notes of biscuit, mild cocoa and earthy hops. A creamy mouthfeel and full body enhances its drinkability, making Nut Brown an extremely sessionable ale that embodies our commitment to quality.

Foffern (1617) - Bodř, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle at home. Has a deep nut brown colour with a light beige medium head. Nice aroma of walnuts, leather, oak, coffee beans and some smoke and dark chocolate. Find the same in the taste but feels lighter than expected where leather, nuts and wood being the most dominant. Has a silky and light mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A good and tasteful brown ale.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Lovely, clear, dark chestnut brown colour. Finger-thick, soft, light beige head that settles as a thin film with some lacing. Aroma of malt, chocolate, vegetables, nuts. Medium body, soft carbonation. Mildly bitter, chocolate-malty taste with a growing acidity. Lingering malty-bitter-sour aftertaste.

Nice mahogany pour from 22oz’er - I picked up an abundance of cocoa on the nose, toffee too. In the taste department, there were no surprises--quite representative of style for English brown ales. Secondary flavors of acorn, hazelnut, and earth. Thanks Ale Smith.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Lightly roasty aroma with dark fruits, malt and hints of nuts. Medium body. Sweet and malty with roasty notes and a mild bitterness in the finish. Quite mild in flavour, but pleasant and sessionable. (2013-02-23)

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2013
Pours a dark brown colour with a good white head. Aroma of nuts, dough with some eartyness. Taste is wellbalanced, but maybe a bit boring. Nuts, earthy, some roasted malts and a tiny caramel-touch at the end. Quite thin palate, but I actually think that this beer suited that in a wierd way. Low carbonation, and a smooth mouthfeel is the main things that makes this beer a enjoyment to drink. It’s not extreme in any way, just a nice 5% beer that is pleasant to drink.

kevd193213 (966) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Bomber. Opaque dark brown pour with a massive fizzy off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of malt, faint bitter chocolate and almonds. Surprisingly thin mouthfeel with an even finish.

Scopey (11759) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle at BrewDog Shoreditch thanks to The Bunce. It pours deep brown with a small beige head. The nose is earth, nut, wood, light coffee, raisin and dark fruit. The taste is wood, nut, molasses, earth, dull sweetness, leather, some bitterness and some dark fruit with a dry finish. Medium body and fine-moderate carbonation. Well rounded and pretty drinkable, but doesn’t terribly excite me....

Tap at Alesmith. It pours very dark ruby-brown, with a thin beige head. The nose is gravy (like Bovril), liquorice, nut, cardboard, molasses and filter coffee. The taste is liquorice, caramel, nut, roasted malt, filter coffee, aniseed and brown sugar, with a dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation. A solid brown ale.

Near black garnet-brown pour with a 3 finger, creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted nuts, toffee, roast, puffed wheat, cereal, chocolate, mild coffee, light mineral, hints of hay and mineral.

Light to medium, creamy to neutral bodylight to moderate, blanketing, near sharp carbonation.
