COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A “nut” brown in the literal sense – with an ample supply of toasted pecans added to the mash during the brew! Plenty of malt and roasted grains hit the palate with a hint of chocolate and coffee backed up with a nice hop bitterness

Draft at Seward Brewing Co. Typical medium brown with a small off-white head. Nutty biscuity aroma. Flavor is more or less average, maybe a little on the bland side. Medium sugary sweetness. Medium-light body and carbonation. OK.

The appearance has a dark brown body, two finger white foamy head slowly dies leaving a decent amount of spider web foamy lacing. The smell has a rich yet roasty nuttiness with some pecans showing up a bit, backed up sweetly by some chocolate and still slightly balanced by a nice coffee note. The taste is mainly sweet but gives a decent roasty tone to the flavoring, slight nutty aftertaste, no finish. The palate is about a light to medium, and sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me, leaves a slight creamy sort of feel. Overall, this is a good English Brown Ale, as that’s what comes across to me, unsure if this is what the brewer intended, but I didn’t get any hop bitterness anywhere throughout the entire growler, still I would have this again.

[Tap] Sampled at the brewery in early September. Pours a clear brown color without much head. Mild nutty aroma includes some vanilla and a mild roast. Prominent nutty taste is of pecans and hazelnuts. Slick caramel and dark roasted grains in the taste as well. Nutmeg, vanilla and mild cocoa notes. The rich palate is nice. Good looking lacing. I could drink a ton of this stuff.

(tap) hazy dark brown colour with small brown head; roasty, fruity aroma; nutty, aweet flavour with long light bitter finish, probably the best brown ale I have ever had, perhaps because it is not a typical one - but a much nuttier and livelier

On tap at the Great Bear Brewery. Roasty malt aroma. Dark brown with hardly a head. Normal nut brown flavor, nothing too special. Kind of a sour taste, low carbonation.

23-Jan-08 (Draft: Houlihan’s in Soldatna, AK) This is not your typical Nut Brown, but a rich and malty version in the Alaskan tradition. Medium sweet and toasy with deep carmel flavors and a lightly roasty bitterness. Some nuttiness and a hint of light sourness. Not much bitterness to balance the rich, malty flavor, but when the beer tastes this deliciously malty, I don’t need it hops getting in the way. Full-bodied from start to finish with medium carbonation. Chocolaty and malty nose is not as aromatic as it is flavorful. The dark, ruddy brown body is opaque through the center with translucent edges. The light-tan head pours to a quarter inch, settling to a filmy layer and wide ring, but leaves lots of scattered, irregular lacing over much of the glass. Overall, this is one of the most decadent and richest brown ales I’ve ever tried. I wish I had more time tonight to drink another pint or two of this, but it’s still a few more hours back to Anchorage.

At the ’08 GABBF. Murky brown color with a foamy beige head. Grainy nose with some faint chocolate. Flavors include dark bread, caramel sweetness and a little roast grains. I got a bitter chocolate that may just have been suggested by the nose. I’m not a brown ale fan, but this was tastey.
