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.

shadey (1977) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2014
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.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled in 7/2014. Pours slightly hazy deep reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, plum, apple, nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, herbal, light plum/apple, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/roast bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toffee, toast, brown bread, nuttiness, light chocolate, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a nice English brown ale. All around good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and light-moderate fruity yeast flavors; and very smooth to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

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.

alexanderj (3398) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2008
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.
