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.

12oz bottle, no date. Pours a medium brown--deep ruby in the glass--with a small light tan head, fair retention. Nice and roasty--kinda like a weakened porter (which I kinda guess is what a brown ale is)--with some roasted peanuts in their shells. There is also some toasted malts, milk chocolate, and a little sweet caramel. The flavor seems to add a bit of lactose up front, but still has a good amount of roasted malts. The nuttiness is lessened, and the finish is dry, roasty bitterness at a 3. Medium body with light carbonation. Pretty decent.

~Pours a dark brown with creamy brown head. ~Roasted malt with chocolate, nuts and caramel. ~Roasted nutty flavor, flavor is fairly weak. ~Thin feel. Slight nutty finish. ~Enjoyable brew. I like the nutiness. Taste needs a bit of a boost.

marcus (7453) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 3, 2009
This dark brown ale poured with a generous tan head and a coffee aroma. There is a heavy dose of chocolate in the flavor and a coffee sensation remains on the palate. This is a pretty good sweet brown ale.

One of the better browns I’ve had. Nice and sweet with a little bit of body to fit the choco-taste. Nice little beer and brewery these guys have going.

12oz via my girlfriend’s dad, blue bottle not red. Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet and chocolaty. Taste is sweet with touches of cocoa and other notes. An above average brown. Nice, thanks Steve!

Bottle. Pours a dark, slightly red tinted brown with a light tan head. Aroma was surprisingly good; nuts, caramel, fruit, with a light touch of butterscotch. Flavor had a good amount of coffee, more than expected. Alot of nuttiness and cocoa as well. A hint of fruit. Overall it was pretty tasty for the style.

Gypsy19 (726) - California, USA - DEC 24, 2008
22-ounce bomber. Pours a chocolatey mess, but not in a bad way. Just a little light comes through to reveal a reddish body within. Aroma is indeed of a typical porter, as the bottle states this is, flavor adds pecan and hazelnut, chestnut to the mix. Also some cheap Denny’s coffee. Overall, not bad.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 26, 2008
(Bottle via trade with IrishBoy, thanks Richard!) Pours dark mahogany brown with brownish/rubyish highlights. A finger or so of biege head. Fairly rich sweet aroma of caramel, nut and chocolate. Mouthfeel quite smooth and nice, almost velvety. Some light, patchy lacing. Flavor of semi-sweet chocolate and nut with some very light caramel underneath. Lingering nut/chocolate aftertaste. Pretty pleasant beer.

DarkElf (3038) - La Jolla, California, USA - AUG 12, 2008
06-Aug-08 (12-oz bottle: Purchased 12-May-08 for $1.89 at Hi-Time Wine Cellars in Costa Mesa, CA) The nose features sweet, candy-bar style chocolate but also offers roast, toasted nuts, coffee and earth. Intensely nutty flavor, with plenty of dark roast and medium-sweet chocolate, but a fairly ashy and coffee-like finish. A touch of sourness creeps in from time to time. Medium in body, soft and smooth carbonation, but some ashy astringency in the dry finish. Medium-brown in color, and good clarity yields transparency through the center, The inch-tall, dark-tan foam stand settles to a wide ring, leaving stray strands of lace on the glass. Not quite as rich as some of the best brown ales, but still quite enjoyable.
