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.

Delicious beer to have with a meal. Not too heavy and not too light. Just right with a great flavor that is subtle yet sweet and very smooth.

The first time I had this, was in Geneva fresh on tap at a Hot Tuna Concert, if i had to rate it on that, it would come close to perfect. I turned to the bottles for a similar experience, but it was lacking. Unbalanced acidity and caramel malt with too high a carbonation ruined it for me. Just stick to it on tap.

UPDATED: APR 28, 2003 A friend of mine picked up a six pack of this up on a beer run last week and it was great. Heavy dark taste with hints of chocolate. Terrific brew.

This is a fairly tasty nut brown ale. Excellent roasty nuttiness with a touch of a bitter finish. The chocolate hints were very pleasing.

Very dark brown in colour, and very sweet in the smell. The smell gives you no idea on the taste however. One quick sip will blow you away. The taste is completely nutty and strong. I think this tastes more nutty than a spoonful of peanut butter! I don't necessarily like a 'nutty' taste in a beer, but the beer definately gives you what the label says, so thats why my rating is so high. A good beer as the label implies, however I don't think it is a great beer for everyone! If you want a nutty taste, definately try this!

This is one of my favorites. A great taste and relatively smooth. It is a bit pricey even if you buy it in the region, but a fine Brown ale.

Kind of a nutty aroma, hence the name. Dark brown color with a fairly thin head that easily dissapated. The reliance on the caramel malts was a just a little too much, in my opinion and I really didn’t get any chocolate or coffee malts. The body was thin, at best, and somewhat oily. I did notice the hint of fuggles at the end though, a nice touch. Overall, nothing special, but certainly drinkable. If you like pure nuttiness in your browns, then you should give this one a try.

There is nothing unpleasant about this beer, but it lacks character. Almost no nuttyness. I paid $6.00 for a 6 pack, and there are way better nut browns for the price.
