3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 ounce bottle from Nugget in Davis, CA. Aroma is a pungent roasted coffee one. There is is a little sweet chocolate thing going on as well as some chalk dust smells. I really canít get past the chalk smell. Virtually transparent dark brown/mahogany body with a fluffy tan head. Has a nice sweet, chocolate flavor to start, which becomes a bit metallic and toasted/roasted in the middle. Lightly bitter to finish. Drinks pretty well. Still canít figure out the chalkiness in the nose. Thankfully, itís not in the flavor.

This poured a medium brown color with an off white head. Aroma was sweeter malts, nutty and some toffee. Flavor was upfront munich malt, and toffee, some roastidness, followed by a sweet aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Big discrepancy here. I really found this super heavy and way too malty/nutty this time.
Original 4.3 Definitely has a nutty aroma. Flavor is a great nutty hop and a big nutty hop as well. This is beer is fantastic and is easily my favorite nut brown ale.

Sweet caramel coffee aroma with some subtle smokiness. Appearance is a deep dark brown with a thick tan head - almost stout-like. Flavor is sweet and smoky malt. Some toasted nut flavor as well. A somewhat watery finish with tight carbonation. Little bitterness aside from the coffee notes.

Nice dark brown color with reddish hints and an offwhite head, I thought that this beer was pretty tasty.
The aroma was of coffee and some chocolate notes, the flavor was dry with nutty roastiness. Very tasty.

Nicely earthy and nutty, with a bit of coffee and chocolate. Some dark fruits also sneak in there, but are a bit harder to find.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours a nice rich coffee brown with almost no head. Nose is rich with nuts and coffee. Flavors of nuts, chocolate, coffee, and dried fruit. Mouth is rich and smooth. nice medium body. This is an excellent brown ale! Becomes a little sweet at times but a wonderful flavor profile for a medium bodied beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mammoth Double Nut Brown is an incredibly dark brown ale thatís almost opaque. The coffee ice cream colored head is dense and slowly thins to a film with oily bubbles and dense lacing. A deep, dark roast coffee aroma sits on a nutty, slightly sweet malty scent. Thereís possibly a touch of mint in the nose. Itís full bodied and very smooth with a long, ashy finish. It tastes a touch sweet, but thereís enough bitterness to balance it out. It tastes nutty-- walnutty, even. The deep, soft sweetness lasts through the finish. The bitterness is secondary here, but itís leafy and appropriately strong. Itís very drinkable on account of all that big, bold, brown flavor.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
