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.

12 fluid oz bottle. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a tan head that quickly diminished. Aromas of cocoa, biscuity malt, light citrus, light dried fruits, and molasses. The taste starts with a light smokey note, cocoa, coffee grounds, a faint spearmint note, and a bitter finish. Reminds me of a lighter Mill Street Coffee Porter. Nothing groundbreaking here, but a totally rock solid dark ale. Recommended!

Hazy brown amber color, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt that adds light chocolate bittering at the finish. Doesn’t stand out from the crowd. Easy drinking, but a little heavy on the back end.

Scrapersnbeer (1491) - 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
