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.

ALLOVATE (2333) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2012
Bottle from Tuckerís Maltings, Newton Abbot, Devon.
Cellar temperature and into a snifter. Rather sad pour resulting in a headless, lifeless, oily looking and murky cola brown; points off there. The aroma is reminiscent of Kopiko candy, hazelnut liqueur, vanilla beans, mahogany timber and varnish, fresh marzipan and a barrel load of mixed, freshly roasted nuts, burdy-nums. Switches gear in the mouth. Tannins, souring malts and light yeasty acidity define it from the norm in the back. Heavily roasted and rich, darker malts otherwise dominate the mid-palate. Lightly roasted coffee, cola beer, cellar must, wood varnish, it tastes of an Old ale of days of old. So long, malty, tannic and rich is the finish, nice depth, a little tobacco and smoke builds. This is deliciously complex for a simple ale. The body quite light and the carbonation all but not evident allows the fluid to simply float on the palate. I would have given a higher rating but appearance is definitely accountable. Lovely, a brew I would love to try fresh after bottling. (50cL, BBE 08/13)

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.

wheresthepath (1521) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2010
[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.

martinrumsam (484) - 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
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.
