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.

One of the best browns around. Malty sweet but but not too sweet. The aroma is English malt . True to the style. Very nice indeed.

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 19, 2011
22oz bottle. Rating #87. Real dark amber/brown pour with a nice looking tan head and spotty lacing. Pretty big roasted coffee aroma with a bitter dark chocolate aroma as well, real nice. Flavor is a little lighter than the aroma, more of a toastiness than roast. Pretty easy drinking and well done. (1655)

[Tap] Guest tap at Stateline Brewery. Dark brown in color with a rocky brown head. Roasted malt aroma includes chocolate and some coffee. Heavy roasted flavor suggests some smoke and tar along with astringent grains, earthy malts and hazelnut. Moderate in body and creamy mouthfeel. Some residual sweetness in the finish. A nice brew!

On tap after a great day of skiing. Pours a dark brown with a slight tan head. Smells of pecans toasted malts chocolate and medium roast coffee. Tastes a little sweet with some nice coffee flavors shining through. My opinion may be a little biased due to the fact that every time I drink this brew I am with friends being extremely thirsty and tired after a day on the slopes.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear dark brown with a medium tan head. Nutty and chocolatey aroma with some roast. Chocolate malt flavor starts you off, then a nutty presence shows up before a roasty finish.

I often drink this when I am at Mammoth (for snowboarding in the winter and mountain biking in the summer), but this rating based on a bomber that I purchased at the brewery a year and a half ago (only $3.25). Pours a dark brown with some dark reddish highlights and a half-finger of tan foam. Nice aroma of peaty malts, toasted nuts, caramel, vanilla, and chocolate. Flavor has nutty roasty malts, some chocolate, some caramel, but also a sourness that is somewhat distracting. Finishes with an aftertaste of slightly burnt malts and chocolate. Light in body. I like that the nuttiness is actually detectable in both the nose and mouth. A very drinkable brown ale that crosses over into porter territory. (83, 468)

Tap. Pours deep brown with a creamy beige head. Nose was full of nuts and roasted matts. Flavor was much of the same, everything Newcastle should be.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2011
My Bottom Line:
This sweet Brown Ale’s boastful aroma of caramel, lactose-like sugars and hazelnuts moves into a pillowy body where milk chocolate and roasted, earthy bitterness are added.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam garnishes the brownish mahogany.
-This is very drinkable despite the higher-than-usual residual sugars.
-Cheap coffee allusions aren’t too pleasant.
-Hoppiness is discreet, even in the finish.
-This is a fun and memorable example of the style, even if it didn’t completely wow me.

Bottle.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
Clearish dark brown ale covered by a slim, but lasting beige cover. Impressively nutty nose akin to caramelized pecans. Actually quite sweet, perhaps a bit too much so, but juicy and lean enough, combined with engaging, active small bubbled that make it engaging and drinkable. Minimally fruity with its vanilla touched raisins, it slowly evolves towards chocolatey/coffeeish roasted malts. Finishing with a slightly misplaced bitterness paired with more roast acidity than it deserves, reminding of stale ashtray coffee beyond those shy leafy hops. The global impression remains good though and I’d gladly have believed that it was brewed with real nuts.

Aquilo (536) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 3, 2010
Dark orange-brown with a thick head. Aroma is very nutty with coffee and caramel. Flavor is moderately bitter, with a lot of residual sweetness. Thirst quenching, but a bit thin on the palate.
