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.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 1, 2008
Bottle: Dark mahogany ruby color with light head and nice lacing. The nose is nutty and malty with a decent fruitiness along with the robust light smoke and toffee notes. The flavor is toasty with a little peat and some lighter chocolate notes. The finish is tame and mellow. Nice creaminess and a bitter snap that rounds out the tail. Decent and somewhat quaffable.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Nice session ale with a good looking pour, a clear chestnut body with a frothy ecru head. It’s got an aroma of soft roasted nuts covered with thin milk chocolate. The chocolate grows in the flavor and there’s a slight addition of toffee. It finishes on a note of quietly bitter nuts.

Had on tap at their brewpub in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky Airport. Medium copper appearance, thick off-white head with good lacing. Aroma has a bit of a caramel sweetness to it with some fresh lake water undertones. Some nutty sweetness in the flavor with some caramel uindertones. MOuthfeel is decently thick. Overall, not a bad Brown Ale.

This brown ale pours a deep brown color form a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized tan foamy head. Aroma is nutty, chocolate malts, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are caramel, nutty, chocolate and sweet. Hops are earthy and floral. Nice balance. Lively carbonation. Kind of semi sweet with a dry finish. Nice brown ale, not boring at all. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark amber color with a thick creamy rosy beige head. The aroma is roasted malt and nuts. Initial flavor is pretty full, rich, malty, weak coffee. Later it becomes a bit more nutty. The finish is dry, some bitterness, with a very weak coffee note. The bitterness is moderate but adds balance to the rest of the flavors. Medium body and somewhat smooth. A decent local offering.

Reddish brown color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, some pine, and floral hops. Taste of caramel malts, some roast, nuts, and toast.

Bottle. Brown pour with a small tan head. Fades very quickly. Nose is nutty and toasty with some cocoa notes and caramel. taste is spicy hops, nutty flavors, maybe chocolate covered nuts, cocoa and caramel. Perhaps some Bit O Honey, but it’s very faint. Body is creamy with moderate carbonation. Some toasty malts and nuts in the finish. Spicy hops come through here too with a touch of earthiness. Light caramel, bit of toffee and cocoa. Nice brown ale given that I don’t care for the style very much!

Draft to taster at BBC. Looks solid; a transparent copper with iff-white lacing. Smells and tastes malty and nutty with hints of caramel and an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

My first ever live rating! Brown, decent beige head. Really nice aroma - roasted walnut, tobacco, some caramel, too. Clean and crisp. Notes of toast and caramel, dry finish. Tasty for the style.
