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.

I love brown ale’s, and this is the best brown I’ve ever tried. It is a tad be sweeter than most.

Appearance isn’t a good indicator on the taste of this beer, although it’s a beautiful warm color. Everything from the front taste to the understones is enjoyable.

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

Absolutely amazing! Pours a dark brown thick body with a thin dissipating white head. Unsurprisingly the aroma has a nut like quality which is highlighted with malty overtones. Tastes so smooth and soft quite a sweet taste with a highlight similar to a cold chocolate milkshake... a beautiful beer! I love it!

Great color, darker then most browns. Very deep brown and glowing, with a light head of foam that fizzes out quickly. Aroma city with this stuff, excellent coffee tone with a strong nut and caramel roastyness. The smell of this stuff was sooo gooood. Tastes just as wonderful as it smells echoing all the aromas with superb balance of sweet caramel malt, hazelnut, some chestnut & pecan maybe, with cocoa and vanilla like notes. Smooth medium body and solid nutty hold on the tongue and mouth. Drinkable, you bet! Very drinkable, very good, very flavored.

Appearance: dark ruby brown, with purplish highlights and a creamy light tan head, leaving spotty lace. Aroma: very appetizing, slightly sweet, with notes of caramel, toffee, leather, brown bread, hint of chocolate. Taste: awesome--molasses, toast, toffee, caramel, chocolate, a hint of roasted chestnuts (or hazelnuts), a bit of tobacco and wood. Finish: slightly sweet malts linger pleasantly, while mellow, earthy hops and light carbonation sweep the palate clean. Notes: Oh my gosh I loved this beer. Grabbed a single on a whim. Best brown ale ever. I’d hold it up against Brooklyn’s, Dogfish Head’s, Smuttynose, any of them. I must have more.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - MAY 17, 2004
First off, you have got to let this beer warm a bit before you can enjoy it thoroughly. Then you will experience a toffee sweet aroma coupled with strong tea fragrances. The color is that of a chocolate labs coat. The flavor is smooth, slightly bitter and subtly sweet. Roasted malts and a light porter-ish quality persist on the palate. Perhaps my standards are low, but I find this to be a very well constructed brown ale and can find no points upon which to diminish my rating.

Very smooth. Dark, crisp color. No aroma. Brown cloudy head. Slightly carbonated with a very slight aftertaste. Brown sugary sweet.

onedawger (60) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2012
The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had malts, metallicness and molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, hint of ash and mild bitterness. Aftertaste was a bit roasty and mildly bitter. A quite disappointing brown ale. Lacking maltiness especially in the aroma.

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.
