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.

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.

Very nice. Chocolatey, caramelly, and spicy. Nicely balanced with zingy hops. Brown color with red tints. Not full bodied, but still fills the mouth - very satisfying.

Aroma is welcoming, and good things happen from there. Sweet in front, hoppy in back, as desired. Subtle nuttiness doesn’t get in the way. Cool.

TAR (2671) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - OCT 12, 2001
UPDATED: APR 2, 2003 A very impressive offering on cask. Nuttier than I could have ever imagined and very smooth. Maybe neeeded a bit more malt but nonetheless, a stupendous, accurate interpretation of a fine English brown.

If I didn’t know it was a brown, I would assume this was a porter. Mildly nutty and moderate bittering.

Marvelous brown ale, further proof of the mastery of the Goose Island brewers.

Not sure what hex nut is,but this stuff was alright. It had body and flavor and demanded some respect.
