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 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!

Smells like sweet caramel and black coffee, flavor is a great chewy maltiness with a dry nuttiness. Probably the most potent nut brown i have ever had. Extremely drinkable and extremely refreshing. Fantastic. Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Nashville.

On tap at East Nashville Beer Festival 2014. Nutty aroma and flavor. Just what I was expecting. It seemed to me that a lot of the small brewers at this festival were trying to be respectful of traditional european styles, but falling short of being interesting. This beer is an example of how to accomplish that feat.

Sampled from tap on 10/14/2006 at McQuiston’s Malthouse in Madison, Indiana... Dark amber color with a thick creamy head. Mild carbation lending to this beer’s smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The aroma is roasted malt and nuts. Initial flavor is full, rich, malty, weak coffee. Then it becomes nutty and buttery (butter pecan?). The finish is drier, some bitterness, and like weak coffee again. There is just enough bitterness to balance this beer and stay slightly hidden. Medium body. I was quite pleased with this beer and really enjoyed it. This is a solid Nut Brown Ale. 6 oz draught, $1.50 at McQuiston’s Malthouse.

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.

Bottle; poured a dark auburn color with a smallish off white head. Aroma was really good for the style; caramel, chocolate covered nuts, and chocolate milk. Flavor was surprisingly good for the style; a hint of coffe with caramel, chocolate ant nuts. A touch of sweetness. A little hint of creaminess on the palate would have made it an elite version of the style; however it was still really good.

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.

Bottle. Reddish-amber color, pale head, leaves a hint of lacing. On first pour, aroma has a strong vanilla-chocolate scent, which gives way to a predominantly roasted-nut malt scent once the beer warms up slightly. Flavor has the same vanilla background, over a roast-nut malt. Tiniest hints of hop floral and light coffee. Smooth and very little bitterness.

draft pours out dark reddish brown with nice foamy white head. the aroma was of roasted malt and some slight chocolate. the flavor is quite nice the body is rather light but yet refreshing the roasted malts and chocolate come out. can taste that bit of nuttiness. very decent beer.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2006 Revisited May 24th, 2006 at BW2’s, Louisville, KY. A nice malty brown ale. Not very nutty like, say, a Sam Smith. Maybe it should just be called a brown ale. On tap at Clifton’s Pizza in Louisville.
