Our CHOICE OLD WALNUT BROWN uses Brown, Amber and our traditionally made floor malts in this flavoursome ale. At 6% it reflects the strength of ales being produced at the turn of the 19th Century. Using the traditional malts of our time, our ale has the distinct nutty palate, and walnut coloured hue, of this flavoursome historical style.

500ml bottle shared with Finn at Tuckers Maltings Visitor Centre. Solid lacing from a stable fawn-coloured head. Deep, rosewood coloured body. Aroma of herbal hops and walnuts. Mixed taste of nuts, dark fruits, chocolate and caramel. Sweet malty ending. Pleasing, rather sweet though (Newton Abbot 27.09.2016).

Bottle (many thnks to Quack-Duck for this gem!):Deep ruby-red coloured, clear, big and stable beige head; dryish roasty-nutty nose, accompanied by Aromas of coffee and dried berries; dry bitter flavour, creamy MF, medium bodied; lingering roasty and coffeeish finish. Great stuff...

The_Osprey (6556) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2014
500ml bottle BB Sep 2017, into a pint glass. Looks almost exactly like cola, just a ring of white head with no lacing. Aroma has cardboard, bisto granules, yeast, some dark chocolate. Body is medium, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is bourbon biscuit, more dry hazelnut than walnut, a bit of tangy metal towards the finish. Nice enduring musty roasted coffee-ish aftertaste. Decent Sunday night sipping beer. 3.4 was my original thought, though I may be being harsh.

worldbeertaste (1796) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2014
Deep dark brown with a red tint and a tan thin, somewhat lasting, lacy, frothy head. Smells of caramel, bread, nuts, herbs, butterscotch and coffee. Fully slick flat body with a bitter finish. Heavy sweet taste of malt and coffee with a bitter herbal raisin finish. Though I love brown ales, this was seemed a tad sweet. Delicious nonetheless

martinrumsam (564) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2012
Bottle. Mahogany brown with tan head than thins but laces well. Malt and coffee aroma. Taste quite sweet also nutty with chocolate coffee finishing roasty bitter. Low carbonation. Thin to medium mouthfeel. It is not bad if you are a brown ale fan but a little too sweet.

imdownthepub (13370) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Deep brown with cream head. Quite a sweet start to this with a nutty aside, like a Cadbury’s whole nut bar, there is a chocolate note within the malt, which then complicates to a husky coffee. This is all bound together by the sweetness though, which dominates a little for me. Good though.
