COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redolent of coffee and dark chocolate, Double Nut Brown is our amped-up version of a traditional brown porter. This dark ale combines a mild sweetness with a finishing roasty dryness, and is brewed with roasted, brown and dark Munich malts.

I think someone offered me this a PP bottle shop a long time ago, and the rating has been sitting in my wallet. Deep brown color. Grainy taste and aroma. Leans dry. Roasty. Not that good.

JohnnyJ (4087) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2008
Pours a dark brown with thick creamy tan head. Dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and coffee. Starts out fairly sweet and finishes dry. Very nice flavor, but the body is pretty thin and watery. I would recommend trying the brown ale.

Thanks to RiversideAK for this one. Pous light brown with thick 2 finger head that slowly dissipates to thick film. Decent lacing accompanied with toffee, nuts, and hops on the nose. Malty, roasts, nuts, and espresso. Very nice

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 7, 2008
Pours clear brown with a short-lived off-white head. Nicoe aroma of nuts, caramel, toffee, and cocoa. Very malty taste with a solid amount of roasted malt and coffee flavor (like Chock Full O’ Nuts brand). I also got a sour mash-like taste in the finish, along with bitter chocolate. Could have more body, but a really good beer, nonetheless.

Quite watery but tasty. Tasting this and the Alesmith Nautical Nut side by side is quite a contrast. Great roasy taste. I really wish that this was a little more creamy.

Courtesy of acrdz. Brown body with a small tan head, fading. The nose is sweet with light roast, toffee and figs. The flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter with some roast, light chocolate, cola and plums. Medium/light body is thin with moderate carbonation.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2011 Rerate, 22oz bottle, purchased at Mammoth. Upped a few points; no astringency, nothing but a delicious brown porter-ish beer. 12oz bottle, courtesy of acrdz. Thanks, Mike! Pours a dark, clear chewy-brown color; khaki-colored head with patchy lacing. Lots of nuttiness, dried red fruits, and peanut shells in the aroma. Medium mouthfeel: tea-like malts and nuttiness; slightly astringent, chalky, tannic; solid nut character, with some fruitiness coming through. Medium finish, showing tea, toasted malts, and dried fruit.

3fourths (7801) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 7, 2008
12oz bottle. Strange nutty bran and dog food nose, with some celery/grassy hop notes. Strange, pallid flavor, papery texture, with more bran and bread crust, some chestnuts, some toast, and some out of place vegetal hop flavors.

On draft at Whiskey’s of Mammoth. A nice brown hue followed by a warm chocolate malt, toasted nutty waves and mild hop hints with a super smooth finish, I can’t wait to have another!

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Pours thinly, producing a body of rich mahogany; weak skin of grey leaves a sticky film of lacing along the sides of the glass. Forceful and slightly pungent aroma of pepper, peat moss, wet mulch and iron; watery hints of toffee and red berries. Taste brings a tepid, crisp montage of autumn leaves, milk chocolate, cinnamon, a bit of maple, and red apple. Not stunning, and highlighting the lesser qualities of its components, but predominantly pleasant. Quite dry, with hints of holly, cedar wood, and browned banana; a crisp, warming Christmas spice character seems most recurrent throughout. Medium in body, smooth, but somewhat tightly wound. Finishing smack of dry, leafy earth, medium roasted coffee and toasty brown sugars. Plain, but amiable. Thanks Alex!
