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.

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 itís 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 donít care for the style very much!

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Kevin. Pours a clear dark amber under a one finger light brown foamy head that faded to a thin film. Aroma is very nutty with a light hoppiness. A little chocolate malt as well. The flavor is a little grainy but quite nutty and full flavored. The finish is lightly bitter with some chocolate. Mouthfeel is thinnish with fizzy forced carbonation. Texture is trying to be creamy but the carbonation interferes. Overall, this was maybe a little better than average for a Brown Ale, but still nothing exciting.

vyvvy (5757) - 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.

nuplastikk (5749) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
12oz bottle. Toffee brown orange color. Mild roasty aroma. Lots of dark malt flavor, very rich, borderline Porter territory. Some nuttiness does come through. MIld stuff, a lighter side of a full bodied brown. Very well done. The best Brown Ale from Kentucky that I’ve ever had.

thedm (5615) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAY 11, 2006
This draft brew poured a large foamy tan colored head of finely sized long lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent red brown colored uncarbonated body and a fair lacing. The aroma was nice with chocolate brown malty notes. The mouth feel was mildly tingly smooth and crisp with a milky brown malt flavor.
