COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich and creamy brown ale starts with a powerfulroma of roasted and caramelized malts that carries all the way through the beers finish. On the palette hints of hazelnuts, chocolate and that wonderful flavor of caramelized malt shine filling out the beers body.

5oz sample from a flight. Pour is muddy river water with an inch of off-white head. Nose is hazelnut, caramel, malt, toffee, and a bit of earth. Taste is a very nice account of the nose that ends with a spritzy toffee hop zing. This is a very nice brown ale that is really easy to drink!

first time thought it Best nut brown I have had. Real nut taste. Nice brown color. Carmel sweetness. Thoroughly refreshing. Subtle head.You can feel the carbonation on-tap but not overly done. Had again 5.5 years later and was rather average. Dark brown with a little white head, and lots of lace. Sweet finish, aftertaste, and aroma.

Sampled at the BF Brewpub. Pours a muddy brown body with small off-white head. The aroma is slight nut, bacon and roast. The flavor is roasted, slightly malty, ad watered down bacon, but somewhat sessionable.

kramer (4856) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Growler, from brewery. Pours a rather dark clear brown body with a nice dark beige creamy head that had pretty good retention. Nice clean nutty malt nose with just a light touch of hops. Lighter notes of coffee and chocolatet. Very straightforward flavor, lots of nuttiness and light roast with some toasty and chocolate malt. Just a tinge of bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with nice soft carbonation. Very smooth, no signs of graininess at all. Overall, a very nice example of the style, very sessionable.

Draft @ Bullfrog, labeled as "Nut Brown Ale." As a side comment, it looks like this "Brown" entry has become a placeholder for multiple brown ales (i.e., Blue Collar Brown, Nut Brown, etc.) and may require some distinguishment. Pours a murky brown color; minimal off-white head. A mild nuttiness and chocolate character in the aroma; reserved. Medium mouthfeel: pleasant viscosity, showing nuttiness, caramel, and milk chocolate upfront, balanced out by some slight mineral bitterness on the perimeter; generous malt character and quite satisfying. Medium, nutty and chocolate malt finish; some cereal.

Tap at Split Rock ’04. Billed as "Nut Brown". Cloudy brown with a tan head. Nutty roasty aroma and flavor. Malty and rich. Rather nice.

Tasty brown ale. Medium bodied, a little clearer than some other browns, but really good lacing. Started with a nice bready nutty malt and ended with a thicker warming hop.
