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 (2549) - 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 (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...

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle Conditioned. A dark brown coloured beer with a short-lived off white, almost creamy in appearance, head. The aroma is nutty and chocolatey and also features raisins and rum. The taste is of dark chocolate, wood, burnt tea loaf and nuts. It is very rich and tasty but maybe a little too complicated?

Sigmund (5606) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 30, 2005
500 ml, bottle conditioned. Dark brown colour, no head, minimal carbonation. Delightful, intense and complex aroma with strong fruity and roasty notes - plums, prunes, coffee, chocolate, leather. Also hints of oak and spices. Nutty and roasty flavour with a pronounced bitterness from the roastiness and the hops. Hoppy bitter finish / aftertaste. Interesting beer, even historically.

worldbeertaste (1728) - 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

rauchbier (3652) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2004
Bottle conditioned, from Tuckers Maltings courtesy of John White. Deep chestnut red with thin off white head and gentle fine condition. Gentle buttery caramel, milky coffee and gentle hops in the nose, initial roasted barley in the mouth with a building coffee and chocolate sweetness towards the end. Finish has a nice prickle of roasted bitterness with some nuttiness, a pleasant fruity sweetness and some chalky hop notes right at the end.

Pours totally flat with a dry nutty taste.A good example of a very traditional British style.Very easy to drink and easy to forget its strength.Long may we continue to be given the chance to taste a decent brown ale like this.

Bottled@chriso. Deep amber colour, not too much head. Aroma is raisins, some fruits and mild syrupy sweetness as well. Flavour is nutty, fruity, raisins, some mild syrupy notes as well as mild toffee and wood.

imdownthepub (11197) - 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 Cadburyís 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.
