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.

FlacoAlto (4045) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Pours with an easily, fat-three-finger thick, darkish, tan colored head. The beer is a very dark, brownish amber color, but shows a brilliantly clear, concentrated ruby color when held up to the light. The aroma is nice and malty with a mix of hops, fruit and darker grain aromatics. Aromas of berries and toasted grain / light coffee notes are noticeable at first, but then a particularly sharp, almost weed-like, herbal hop note comes to the fore. Initially the aroma was quite inviting, but that was all of like two seconds. This really green, overly vegetal, just bad aroma is here somehow and it is hiding all of the rich malt notes that I know are here somewhere. It smells something like an overly moist, just starting to rot, heap of weeds.

The taste is sweet up front, with a nicely caramelized layer of malt sugars. Flavors of berries and raisins are brought out by the sweetness. The beer is still fairly light bodied for something titled a double nut brown ale, but still has some fullness to it. The beer finishes with some toasted malt notes, which try to dry out the finish, but are not really successful at it. Somewhere in the finish that vegetal note from the aroma is noticeable, but luckily it is fairly subdued here (if you can taste without breathing it is not noticeable at least). Rancid broccoli, or some flavor like that, becomes noticeable in the finish if you drink this normally (with both nose and mouth).

If it wasn’t for that bad aromatic note, this would be quite enjoyable. Unfortunately it effects not just the aroma, but the flavor too and is too much for me to really enjoy this brew.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - OCT 17, 2007
Bottle. Nice dark brown appearance with smallish head, aroma of sweet caramel, roasty with a tinge of almond. Not getting a double heaping of nut flavor, but what otherwise very smooth roasty, cocoa coffee and sweet caramel. A decent brown ale, easy to drink.

Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - SEP 5, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 On tap in Bishop. This is a moderately rich, dark, brown ale with a strong toasted coffee/chocolate flavour and bite. Not as smooth or balanced as some brown ales (like Newcastle or Downtown Brow). It has stronger body and flavour than Newcastle but is thinner and less well-rounded than Downtown Brown. It’s fairly good but nothing special. This is primarily because it has too much of a burnt coffee/choclate element which tends to dominate the beer, leaving it not that well balanced and somewhat one-dimensional.

mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 3, 2007
Bottle(6%) from Hi-Time Wine. Pours a very dark ruby color. Strong roasted coffee aromas. Some sweet chocolate as well. Hoppiness is hidden in there too. Very roasty flavor. Strong coffee character. Some milk sugar sweetness. Some hops in the finish to round it out. Tastes alot more like a stout than a brown.

adrian910ss (2445) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2007
Pours a dark clear amber brown with mohagany undertones and a creamy beige head. Aroma of brown nuts and creamy coffee. Taste is pleasantly nutty with hints of cream, coffee, malts and a bit of baking chocolate. Excellent.

riversideAK (5827) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Super strong coffee malt aroma. Dark brown with mahagony undertones. A smallt tan head that went away pretty quickly. Slightly nutty aroma as well. A very nice coffee flavor. Not alot of sweetness. Initial taste is mostly bitter piney hops. Very coaty mouthfeel as it is quite resiny for the style. I liked this alot, as I found it pretty unique for the style!

Just an average nut brown...a little too overwhelmed by the coffee flavors, and too dry for preference in the style...still one of Mammoth’s better beers.
