COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich mahogany hue of the Nut Brown is the first thing you will notice about this complex, malty brew. A delicate blend of chocolate malt, caramel malt, and four other malts brings to this beer a chocolatey sweetness, and hints of coffee. The malt character is subtly balanced with Northdown and Fuggles hops.

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 8, 2012
Heavy aroma of cocoa beans and coffee. Reddish cola appearance. It’s nutty and sweet, but surprisingly bitter and astringent as well. Thin, with the consistency of warmed syrup. Typically American brown ale.

Chocolatey, nutty brown ale that drinks easily and smoothly. A little thin, though not out of style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsmerig (1143) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2012
pours a rich dark brown color with minimal tan head. Aroma is leather and chocolate. Taste is dark malt yet not overly sweet offset by a bit of spicy hops. It then turns chocolate as the taste lingers.

micronaut129 (143) - chalfontborotowntonbergville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Cloudy and hazy mahogany color. Not much head formation even after an aggressive pour, but has good carbonation. Mostly malty aromatics with some chocolate powder. Simple tasting nutty and malty and a bit dry on the palette. Plain jane beer.

ben4321 (3560) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle, 5/17/12

Aroma: This one has a sweet nose of caramel, nuts, dark malts, roast, and coffee
Appearance: It has a mahogany-brown pour with a small-mid sized light brown head and spotty lace
Flavor: It tastes of sweet malts and roasted malts, lightly bitter coffee and earthy flavors show up later
Palate: The body is fairly light for the style, but not particularly watery, and it has a slightly acidic finish
Overall Impression: I have no idea where this one came from, but thank you to whomever left it in my fridge! This one is a pretty solid offering. It has some nice nut brown-like components to it, and overall it drank pretty decently. It may not be a top-of-style offering, but I have no major complaints either.
