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.

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.

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.

Clear umber color with a moderate dense tan head. Wide ring of lace. Mellow aroma. Chocolate covered peanuts, lightly roasted coffee, earth, and dark brown sugar mingle together in the nose. A mild fruity component enters as it warms. Very smooth feel. 7%! You have to be kidding! I was thinking this would be a great brew to imbibe all night, but perhaps a bit strong for that, but it would be a fine brew to sip while reading a novel. Flavors are quite light but well balance and soothing. Light chocolate and modest yeast. Light roasted malt linger. This is a really nice brown ale. Thanks John.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 19, 2005
12 oz boIttle courtesy of brewer Irishsnake, thanks! Very very dark, almost opaque viscous brown, with little head but for a tiny lasting ring...strongly roasty, slightly acidic and dark-nutty (think burnt hazelnuts) nose with hints of chocolate and tobacco peeking through....full-on roasty body moderated only slightly by some brown sugar/caramel notes until very late in the palate when sugary-syrupy character sets in nicely balanced by a tinge of raw, dry bitterness. A fascinating, very complex and distinct American brown

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
With a thin, slightly watery mouthfeel, this beer tasted of an overpowering roastiness, w/ a slight smokey texture. The aroma was full of roast and espresso w/ a hint of smoke, but the roast was a little overpowering. The beer poured a very dark brown color w/ deep red hues; very slight head and thin lacing.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 5, 2005
This brown ale pours with a dark brown body with red tinting with little head or lacing. The aroma and flavor are slightly sweet, nutty and full of roasty notes, coffee and a litte cream. Medium to full bodied and smooth.

joet (2224) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - OCT 8, 2004
Wow, this is extremely heavy. Goregous in the glass. Very dark and sparkling brown foam. The bottle itself has tremendous heft. Lots of coffee flavors, a tad oxidized, slight tang and citric fruit, very nice full body, breamy, bright and crispy, finishes with a peppermint freshness. Very interesting. Definitely not subtle.

Had this on tap at the Tap in Mammoth Lakes. Has a dark brown color with some carbonation and little head. Smell is of sweet malts. Taste is medium bodied of sweet malts/slightly nutty and finishes with a sweet malt finish. Overall a pretty good brown, but nothing special.

Just not enough nuttiness. Love Mammoth Lakes, do not love the Brown Ale, however! Bloozapalooza 2004!
