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.

Soda pop Sweet brown, not my type of beer. Above average carbonation. Tiny wisp of a head. Nutty aroma. They advertise, and I get only a minimum of:chocolate malt, caramel malt, and four other malts , and hints of coffee. Northdown and Fuggles hops, but I do not get much hops.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2004
Dark ruby brown with a smallish tan head. Nutty roasty aroma with a bit of mocha carries through to the flavour profile. Pleasantly malty background, on the sweet side with mild chocolate finish. Palatee is light but very smooth. Very quaffable. Thanks for sharing Ken.

Bottle from Capone’s. Fans of the Good Doctor know that next to the Imperial styles, nut brown is one of my favorites, and it seems to be getting harder and harder to come by this style these days. This one pours burnt sienna with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma is caramel/scotchy malt, wheaties, brown sugar, figs, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, and some rye/pumpernickel breads. The taste is very Wheaties-like, with brown sugar, fig, and the aforementioned nut trifecta, plus a dollop of maple syrup. This one tastes and smells a lot like Celebrator, but without quite as much palate heft and complexity.
