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.

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.

Dark mahogany with decent, creamy orange-tan head / Smooth nose of roast barley, chocolate, coffee, and cream / Medium body, a touch watery but creamy and smooth, dry with just a hint of sweetness, excellent balance and finish / Somewhat cooked flavors of semisweet chocolate, roast coffee, nut, and cream / Solid, without being exceptional in any category.

Malty and true to the style. Sweet, brown, and tasty. Caramel and toffee with no noticeable hops or bitterness.

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.

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!

I was pleased with this ale. It pours a dark brown with a nice tan head. Has a coffee and nutty aroma to it and the taste is much the same. The flavor truly reflects the name it does have a distinct nutty character to it Nice malty taste with just the right touch of hops for the finish. Good brew.

BBC’s Nut Brown Ale is a very quality beer. The taste is very good as is the coloring. Is slightly sweet but the sweetness compliments the nuttiness

A very well rounded brown, the couple I kicked back with were very enjoyable. The pour produces an abundant aroma of chocolate and roasted nuts, a wonderful inviting scent. Dark amber color with a dense brown hue. Thick filmy tan head that settles to a nice layer that leaves a stringy trace of lacing. Medium, malty body that is nice and creamy. Real smooth and drinkable without getting too heavy, this could become a nice long session beer. Roasted malt flavors backed by some caramel, toffee, and a dash of cocoa. Hops seem non-existent within the flavor, which allows the nice blend of malts to take over. A well crafted Brown Ale, very nice from an often overlooked style.

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!
