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.

Dark brown pour, opaque with brown edges, not much head, watery/sticky mouth feel, malty sweet aroma. Not bad, but not as satisfying as other nuts I’ve had.

From a bottle poured a brown color with a small amount of head. Nutty malty flavor with a quick finish.

Weird face on the label. IT is a fruitier example than most but with a lot of darker malts. It is okay, average.

12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours brown/ruby with a thick, cream-colored head. Aroma strong of nuts, caramel, and lightly roasted malts plus some light floral hops. The flavor is a good blend but there is something that doesn’t mix well. Average texture. A pretty good brown ale.

Nuts, malt, and a little coffee in the aroma. Coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt flavor. This is a solid, enjoyable beer.

Bif (1981) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle- Pours a dark brown with a small tan head that fades quickly and not real lacing. Aroma of roasted nuts, abit of caramel and a soft sweetness. Taste of mild nut and a bit caramel. There is a subtle bitterness and a dry finish. Moderate body, smooth and a bit creamy. Nice casual beer for the style. Good for a couple.

12oz bottle, pours a murky brown with a red hue and a nice tan head, the aroma has a good amount of coffee on the nose with some toffee and chocolate, the flavor has a good amount of chocolate on the front end with a coffee finish, actually this one is pretty tasty, a little thin on the mouthfeel is my only complaint, nice offering from Ithaca.

Bottle. Deep brown color. Smells of chocolate, carmel and mild hops. Taste is crisp and malty with a nutty backbone. Quite enjoyable

Bottled. Poured chocolatey brown with a short, fairly dense beige head. The aroma picked up soft nutty and chocolate notes with some malty sourness accenting.. some earth and toffee as well.. not exciting, but certainly pleasant. The flavor found a blend of milk and slightly darker chocolates plus nutty notes at the core.. tart, somewhat medicinal character around.. finished dry and a touch sour with more chocolate. Light-bodied and dry on the palate.. OK stuff, but the bottle seemed old.

On tap at Ithaca Memorial Day weekend 2011. Pours a dark brown color with a moderate off-white head and a slight bit of lacing on the way down. Thin collar throughout. The nose brings a bit of lightly-roasted malt plus chocolate and a touch of coffee. The flavor has some brown malt and mild sweetness. Some caramel and a bit of brown sugar. Light chocolate and a bit of a dry roast coming through toward the finish. Actually, a bit too dry for what the flavor had. Medium body with average carbonation. Pretty standard brown; I’d have it again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 06-04-2011
