COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
BBC Nut Brown Ale has a diverse grain bill which lends this traditional English ale a variety of flavors that coalesce into a remarkably smooth and pleasant drink. Additions of various pale, caramel and dark malts create a smooth, sweet malt profile with hints of roasted nuttiness. Multiple additions of English hops round out the flavors and give this classic beer a true flavor of the Old World.

On tap: Pours dark brown/ruby color with a light tan head that is mostly lasting. Malty aroma has hints of caramel and nuts. Medium body has a sweet nutty flavor from start to finish. Easy drinking and enjoyable but no WOW factor.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2006
Pours clear brown with a soapy tan head. The aroma is malty with some cocoa, toasted malt, hints of coffe and some nuttiness. Medium / light body with a good amount of semi-sharp carbonation. The taste starts sweet and malty with light mollases, underlying butterscotch and bits of honey. The finish has a bit of spice and lingering sweetness. Not bad, just pretty darn plain.

Very average English brown ale. Nothing spectacular, but nothing off-putting. Great if you are in the mood for this sort of thing, but it didn’t knock my socks off.

Pours a dark brown in color with a tiny, beige head. Roasted nut aroma. Flavor of meaty pecans with a dash of the bitter shell left on, a bit of caramel . Sweet malt up front. Slightly watery, but not bad.

Thanks to kmpitz2 for this... Appearance is transparent chestnut brown with a small, light tan head that fades into a collar and mild cap. Little speckles of lacing are left around the glass. Smell is of cocoa, roasted nuts, and fresh, cracked grain. Taste is nutty with hints of cocoa, roasted grain, with a bit of crisp wheat coming through, along with a touch of caramel. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a mild grainy astringency. Lots of nutty, grainy residue brushing along the palate behind the slightly thin swallow.

bgburdman9 (859) - Kettering, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2006
Poured a very dark brown color with a small head. Flavor was pretty smooth and a little caramel and lightly roasted. More roasty than other brown ales. A little sweet and not any alcohol present. Solid brown ale.

Thanks to weeare138. Pours a translucent golden amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma was nutty, toasty, hints of choccolate, some caramel and honey. Flavors of the same. A bit on the thin side.

pours dark brown with a nice light brown head that settles into a thin film. aroma roasted nuts and cream. bittersweet nutty cream flavor. light milk chocolate possibly. body is a bit light. carbonation is just a little too much. bitter nutty medium dry finish. hint of hops. decent. certainly drinkable. just a bit weak overall.

Here’s my take: creamy, buttery, and surprisingly a mellow nut plavor, on the back palate, there is a lingering and faint amaretto feel. there’s almost a pudding feel to the ale, perhaps caramel. I’ve sampled a few of the BBC brews thus far, and this places second only to the Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout. I liken the aroma and back palate flavor to that of some of the He’Brew brews. The head is thick and almost khaki. I definitely recommend this beer, as the BBC definitely has found a winner here. it’s not exceptional, but for BBC it is definitely above average. While the hops are noticable, i still think theat if there were a bit more bitterness and hops complexity to it, i wouldn’t complain, but nonetheless it is a good brew.
