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.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2007 12 oz from either Hi-Time Wine or Bevmo...forget which. <P> Aroma is heavy peanut skin, vegetable oil and pretty dang big on chocolate aromas. You also get a healthy dose of coffee. Pretty solid smelling Brown Ale if atypical...though what is typical for a Double Brown Ale? <P> Body pours murky river water brown and settles a deep ruddy brown that is very close to black. The head is dark tan, a thumb thick and fades slowly. <P> Fairly heavy, for a brown ale, on the palate, but the fore is somewhat light on flavor...mild toasty malts, definite nuttiness...but not a high concentration. It gets more compressed throught the middle with chocolate, coffee, peanut skin and mild burnt/black chocalate notes. I really like this. It finishes with a strong dark chocolate/mint flourish. I wish this is what most Brown Ales tasted like.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 5, 2006
Bottle: Pours a dark brown/ebony color with a thick tan head. The nose is very, nutty I guess, with lots of caramel and light roast and coffee. The flavor is a bit sweet and dry with some sesame oil and chocolate. The finish is creamy, a bit tangy, but still mellow and nutty through the end. Not bad.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Body is brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee, chocolate, much like a porter with hazelnut extra. Taste is like a porter also, heavy coffee, with hazelnut. Differant, but nice. Much more like a porter.

jimhilt (2390) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Pours with a three finger light tan head that fades slowly leaving some lace. Almost black color. Liight carbonation and medium bodied. Malty nose. Starts sweety, nutty smooth, finish is clean with traces of hops. Good brown. $1.69 for a 12oz bottle from Hi-Time Cellars Costa Mesa, Ca.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - SEP 4, 2006
12oz bottle (6%abv) poured a dark ruby brown color with an ok sized tan head. Aroma was chocolate, caramel and some hops. Had a nice deep malt taste that rounded out to some chocolate notes. Overall I think this beer is one of the better brown ales around, don’t see why it’s not rated higher.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2006
SLightly bucking the trend, but I like this one. Nice roast in the aroma with some toasted caramel. Reddish brown in color. Beyond standard brown in flavor. Roasted caramel is kicked up to a tolerable level, lots of dry roasted peanuts, slight smokiness, fairly tangy. Not a bad effort and the best beer from this brewery.

fordest (1964) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 10, 2006
12 oz bottle. Brown pour with an ok head. Aromas were pretty good. Some roastiness and some chocolate. But the flavor really fell off. That classic brown ale twang was just too much for me. Not my favorite.

Barrel Draught from the jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center 29/09/2005 Mid brown coloured and slightly rich on the palate. Strong in alcohol. Some bitterness in a nutty flavoured finish.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
Nutty, biscuity, toasted malts in the aroma. Clear mahogany brown body is topped by a low, fine bubbled, tan-brown head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lacing. Sweet, nutty malt flavour is joined by chocolate and roasted malts with a fair finishing bitterness. Medium light body with moderate carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005.
