COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
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 from Tuckers Maltings, Newton Abbott] Pours dark brown with a negligible head and no carbonation. Tia Maria aroma. Sweet black coffee continues into the flavour, balanced well against the bitterness of burnt roasted malt. Some chocolate and cough mixture in the finish. Very smooth and easy to drink - the alcohol is (dangerously) not apparent at all. Good stuff.

PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2009
Appearance: Dark chestnut brown in colour with a small off-white head, good lacing. No visible carbonation. Aroma: Nutty roasted malts, with a hint of coffee and chocolate. Noticeable hops, with slight burnt aromas. Taste: Bitter hops on the palete at first. There are clear nutty flavours, roast chestnuts. The malts are toasty, and warming, providing chocolate flavours. Mouthfeel: Quite heavy in body, with a clinging oily texture. Drinkability: A good classic ale from a quality independent brewery. They have managed to provide an ale with brilliantly balanced flavours, and a moreish quality.

yngwie (13923) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2007
Bottle. (Thx to Papsoe) The copper-colored, almost clear body is topped by an off-white head. Slightly burnt aroma, with notes of coffee and a little oxidation. The flavor is roasted, a bit sweet and malty. Full body. The oxidation in the aroma is probably due to the beer being aged some months past BB-date, yet it is a quite good brown ale. (070510)

Fin (7607) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle purchase from Tuckers Maltings online. Poured a very dark brown with no head, aroma mostly of malts and some nuttiness as well? Taste is similar nutty, roasty, quite distinguished very decent again from Teignworthy.

JonMoore (1885) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2005
Bottle conditioned. Clear dark brown with a sparse off-white head. Aroma is chocolate malts. Taste is the same with caramel and some fruit. The texture spoils it for me though, flat and watery.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2005
Nutty, earthy, floral and lightly roasty aroma. Clear mahogany brown with amber highlights is topped by very shy, large bubbled tan head that recedes rapidly to the slightest ring. Chocolate maltiness and orange blossom hops with fairly roasty dark malt bitterness. Medium body with low carbonation and somewhat watery texture. Seems like this could have been a very nice beer if the bottle-conditioning had worked. Bottle (BB 0306, Tuckerís Maltings).
