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.

My wife’s love of this beer may have skewed the rating. A very potent brown ale, almost smokey like a porter. The malty flavor I would have expected is definitely not prominent. Overall a good beer.

Bottle. Dark brown with small foam ring. Aroma is nuts, chocolate, some bread and some roasted. Taste is nuts, some caramalt, some chocolate and some sour coffee (but not much). A nice balanced bitter ending.

Pours a dark brown, almost going into black. Medium small beige head on top of it. Rich malty nose with dark chocolate upfront, bicuits and some vanilla with a bit of bourbon in the finish. Later on a fine hazelnut develops. Taste follows with pleasant chocolate sweetness. Silky body with hints of bitterness. Creamy maltiness. Full body but lightly drinkable. A hint of warmth in the end. A slightl sparkly feel in aftertaste. A delight

Bottle from Bridgend Service Station. Ruby body with a thin off-white head. Very faint lacing. Aroma of toffee, earthy hops and stewed tea. Flavour of burnt caramel, flat Coca-Cola and cocoa powder. Thin to medium body with a watery, slightly oily texture. Light fizz. Beautifully balanced.

Bottle to glass - Color of root beer, thin wispy light beige head. Very rich aroma of roasted nuts, maple and coffee.... Notes of vanilla. Great smell. A tad underwhelming by comparison on the tongue. Some what standard brown. Caramel malts, roasted nuts. Earthy bitter finish. Par.

Dark Ruby brown with dissipating head. Delicious hazelnut aroma with a little vanilla and coffee bean. Nutty taste, sweet, lightly acidic. A little creamy but nothing like rogues.

This is, like, the Fabrege Egg of nut browns or something. And not just some knockoff that looks sparkly and pretty from a distance but lacks craftsmanship once you get up close and start poking around its details. Complex and bittersweet and the dry finish leaves you ready for another sip immediately.

tekstr1der (382) - New Hampshire, USA - SEP 3, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 Pours a nice mahogany with minimal, quick-disappeared tan head. Aroma is amazing, fully realizing the nut component with hazelnuts dominating a malty roast. Flavor is similar though there’s a weakness and slight acidity. Finish is somewhat dry. EDIT: On second try with clean palate, the flavor matches my aroma description. Great stuff - maybe my new favorite of the style.

Good nut brown ale. Pours a little think with a hint of coffee and vanilla smell. The taste is clean and the beer is easy to drink! Not my favorite style but a well done variation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
