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.

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.

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.

FWIW, I’m not a big brown ale fan, but I really like this beer. It is rich and smooth with a lasting nutty flavor. Slightly off topic, but the Goose Island brewpub in Chicago has what may be the best homemade potato chips on the planet.
