HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Growler courtesy of askofficerfriendly. Poured a deep amber with a tall beige head. Nose is caramel and roast with huge notes of pecan. Medium body with a smooth mouth feel and a clean finish. Flavor is sweet malt, caramel, roast, very light chocolate and a huge pecan presence. Finishes sweet with lingering pecan notes. I love the pecan profiles in this one. They play a huge part but at no point do they over take the subtleties of the Maduro base. Very yummy.

Growler courtesy of askofficerfriendly. Pours a reddish amber color with a thin tan head. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of earthiness, chocolate, toffee, nuts, pecans, caramel and honey. Flavor is about the same, very much like Maduro but with a stronger nut presence. Medium body with a malty and sweet finish.

Thanks to askofficerfriendly for the share. Pours deep copper-amber with an off-white head. Nose is pralines, sweetness, brown sugar, tobacco, and nuts. Flavor is pecans, pralines, tobacco, slight malt, and a tiny bit of the typical Maduro bitterness. Flavor finishes with a bit of the Maduro tobacco-y finish, but the nuts come in and leave the mouth feeling like they’ve just had dessert. Nice beer.

MeadMe (1602) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - FEB 11, 2010
A: Pours a nice deep shade of brown with amber hues showing through. Nice tall creamy head with some leggy lace. S: Roasted malt, and caramel up front. Nice strong notes of fresh cracked nuts. T: Malty, with a nice roasty sweetness. Light caramel and chocolate notes can be picked up. The nuts are there in a big way. I love how the nuts pull this one together. I thought maduro was the perfect brown ale, but I think the nuts pushed it over the top. M: Medium in body, smooth as velvet. D: Very, my favorite brown ale to date. Perfect 5 if rating by style.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Fresh on tap at Cigar City Brewing (Tampa, FL): Pours a hazy brown, deep reddish highlight around the rim when held up to light, and an off-white head. Nose is of rich pecans, toasted malts, and other roasted nutty characters. The taste is more like a physical experience- legit chewing on fresh, roasted pecans. Oily mouthfeel, incredibly smooth. Alcohol masked pleasantly. Drinkability: Clearly, the freshest brew I’ve experienced. Truly pleasing. Rebuy: Hells yeah. #275 on 08022010, DG.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Growler courtesy of tpd975. Pours deep amber with bright copper hues and off white head. The aroma is a pleasing mix of full on rich nuttiness mingling in harmony with roasted malts and a sense of burnt malts in the background. The taste is smooth and thick, well as thick as a brown can be, with chewy nuttiness and a variety of roasty malt goodness. It dries out nicely into the finish making for a refreshing experience. The fresh nuttiness is just delicious in this beer.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2010 POurs a hazy brown. Nose is huge pecan, toasted malts, roast, earthiness. Flavor is oily, fresh pecans, earthy malts and hops, toasted malts, hints of smoke. Hands down the best nut brown i have ever had.
