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.

thedm (4924) - Fort Wayne, 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.

Brown pour with hints of red off white head and lace. Toasted malt aroma. Semi sweet roated malt flavor. Good carbonation and mouthfeel. Very solid brown ale.

kramer (4860) - 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.

This beer came in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a chestnut color with a very small tan head. The aroma was sour, tangy, malty and roasty. The flavor was sour, tangy, dry and roasty. The finish was dry and roasty.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Clear mid brown withno head. This is nutty more than anything. A bit of fruot and soft hs. Not bad at all.

Sample at BBC on 9/13/13. Clear brown pour with a medium off-white head. Malt and pungent fruit on the nose with a bit of nuttiness. Malty flavor with stone fruit accents before a dry finish.

EithCubes (4705) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Bottle. Deeply nutty aroma, strong toffee and dark chocolate, kinda of a dessert cake feel but drier and roasty. Faint wood. Much different than expected. Clear, dark mahogany pour with a creamy, tiny-bubbled, rocky thick beige head - look a lot like a meaty Altbier. All the aromatic notes are duplicated in the taste, with the addition of wispy hops to the rich, more-than-medium body. Earthy with devilish lactose, just a touch of sweetness. Smooth and viscous, with a dry, woody aftertaste. A great session with a flair for the dramatic!

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.

nuplastikk (4271) - 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.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2009 Draft at BW3 downtown Indianapolis, IN. Ivory fizzy medium sized head that mostly diminished with sparse lacing, transparent, no visible carbonation, and a ruby hue. Sweet, malty and caramel aroma. Flavor was sweet, malty, caramel and nutty. Mouthfeel was smooth and thin. Re-rated on 2-5-09 at Trion Tavern, New Haven, IN. Poured a medium sized tan head that was very bubbly and mostly diminished, fair amount of lacing, transparent, minimal visible carbonation, and an reddish-brown hue. The aroma was brown malt, caramel, semi-sweet, and nuts. Ditto for the flavor along with some chocolate and a bitter finish. Tingly mouthfeel and medium bodied. Nice balance, easy to drink and would be a so-so session beer.
