A pretty solid brown ale with ample nuttiness and some chocolate and brown sugar notes. Pours lightly hazy deep copper brown with a very wispy off-white head. Lightly sweet nutty finish. Decent.

Bold City’s Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale has a medium, beige head, a murky, lighter-brown ale, with immense powdery sediment, which makes a lava lamp effect, following the "swish & pour", and moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of mild chocolate, sweet brown bread, lighter syrup, a hint of coffee, and a touch of pecan oil. Taste is of all those elements, with low-level bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the light or thin side, and Duke’s Cold Nose finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Sampled at an esbls gathering. In the tasting glass was a dark muddy brown color. Tan head. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate and nuts. Medium body; Flavor is the roasted malts, with nuts still showing. The finish is dry, earthy, and lightly bitter. Quite decent. .

From a can. Pours clear nut brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like toasted nutty malt, a hint of toffee, and earth. Light body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like roasted chocolate malt, toast, nuts, and earth.

Can from TJ’s Gainesville enjoyed at SoG while working on AWC. A nice brown. A little chocolate and coffee in the taste but also some balancing bitterness. Fine.

Medium brown with a tan head. Malty with nuts and caramel, slightly sweet, certainly not displaying the alcohol content at all. Very smooth.
