COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Filtered.
Ingredients: Hops: UK Fuggle, Willamette; Malts: 2 Row, Caramel, Wheat, Dark Chocolate, Victory
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.

This beer has an awesome aroma. The smoothness satisfies, but it seemed a bit flat. Is that hazel nut I taste?

A little too nutty for me. The malt and hops were good, but the extra flavors did not work for me.

I am a real fan of Goose Island, but this is not their best beer. If you want a nutty beer then try it, if not then try another Goose Island beer.

This is the only nut brown ale I’ve tried that actually has a nutty taste.

Great Brown, the choice to brew with nuts give the beer a toasty warm fell. Dark walnut apperance in the glass, very easy to drink although for those who strongly have a distaste for an alcohol taste steer clear of this one. A great beer.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2002
Deep, dark mahogany. Roasty-toasty nose. Rich and smooth, with a little nutty/caramel flavor. Clean finish, not overly exciting, but clean and non-cloying. Very flavorful and very easy to consume. NDmullet’s rating sums it up very well.

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - FEB 2, 2002
Nose is dominated by nutty, sweet malt, brown sugar, and maple. Head is initially cream colored, and the body is a nice deep mahogany. The malt profile is mostly nutty (walnuts), with a tinge of smoke towards the finish. Maybe not quite as complex as is possible for the style, but overall, a fantastic beer. I have try to have this one around all of the time.

Beloved Beer (278) - California, USA - DEC 24, 2001
A hard beer to rate. A definent alchohol scent in the aroma as well as malt. Great presentation from the bottle to the color itself. However, something in the taste wasn’t there for me. Maybe too complex for me at this stage but I thought it had a little too much alcohol taste. The after taste was better than the beer itself.

I was really impressed by this stuff, given that the cloying Newcastle Brown tends to be offered as the apotheosis of this style. Great, slightly sweet, roasted malt base, and Goose Island’s distinctive hopping make for a hell of a beer.
