Our Nut Brown Ale combines the finest domestic and imported malts to produce a chestnut-hued ale of unusual complexity. Subtle notes of chocolate, honey and fine tobacco give this ale an enjoyable and satisfying “nutty” finish.

A sweet brown ale. Too sweet. Nothing special.

Nice nose. The aftertaste reminds me of vodka, something I’m not sure I like, after those Russian class picnics in college ...

Big head, quite dark with only a trace of light coming through. Nice candylike taste, sweet, hints of roastiness in the nose that seem to disappear soon after the pour. Best brew of theirs that I’ve had.

Just beaten by Newcastle (by a nose). Otherwise, a decent inoffensive brown. This underachieving brewery has found its best beer.

Rather delicate for a brown ale - very pretty with good healthy color and fine lacing, but the mild nuttiness doesn’t get all the way there.

this is the first nut brown ale that i have ever had so i don’t have much of a basis for comparison. however the only differice that i found between this and any other brown ale that i’ve had is the appearance, which is much darker and virtual opague

Sorry, this one just couldn’t cut it with me as a ’great’ brown ale. Not really a lot to say. It comes off as way too thin and watery, almost like a macro, and whatever dominant ’taste’ to it was metallic in character. Next to no aroma to speak of, though the appearance is a really pleasing opaque brown. Who knows, the six-pack I bought (based on the reputation it was getting on this site) may have been sitting out in too much light for too long. But it’s quite the disappointment. This is just way too far off from Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown to be worth only 3/10 of a point’s difference. If you want a top-notch Brown, go for Rogue. (Wish I can say I’ve tried the Boyne River....) If you don’t believe me, put them in a back-to-back test and I don’t see how they can compare. The Rogue is one of my top-10 favorites and truly first rate; this is just . . . average.

I really don’t like nut brown ales, and this was no exception. A decent balance of hop and malt flavors, and goes down smoothly, just not a very appealing taste to me.

Rerate here. Solid brown nice malt flavors as well as balancing hops. Just lacks the extra oomph that makes a distinct and memorable impression

In desperate need of a rerate here. This was originally one of my favorite brews when I began drinking ’good’ beer. Now im not so impressed. There’s a house character to GI brews that doesn’t quite sit right with me these days (except in their X-mas Ale). Im not sure what it is but this beer seems almost like a flat stout to me now.
