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.

Yes. Body of a heavy porter, but the nutty goodness of a brown. This beer is huge, but drinkable. Lots of nutty, woody, earthy brown ale notes in here, with a little booze tinge to warm. I love it.

(En fût à la source): Biscuit Oreo, mocha, bouquet floral et une superbe moellesse de corps.
Earlier Rating: 9/9/2015 Total Score: 4.3
(En fût au Sunset Beer Co.): Une performance remarquée du Brown Malt avec son décadent aspect rôti. Le corps est bien moelleux pour ajouter au confort. Mocha, noisettes et miettes de pain s’entassent avec grand plaisir dans cette succulente Brown Ale.

jjsint (2258) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2016
Bottle from Ales by Mail, drunk at home. Mid-brown, translucent with a a small tan head, most of which duly disappears. Lots of hazelnut, coffee and chocolate in the aroma. A bit of odd plastic scent as well. Tastes... hmmm. simultaneously sweet and sour with the sourness winning out. Not 100% sure it’s supposed to taste like this. Carbonation lifts the thin to medium body. Not much aftertaste but there’s a harsh lingering acidity. Odd and unbalanced.

Maakun (3572) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2016
Bottle at home. Hazy brown with small fizzy short lasting beige head. Looks a bit like unclear cola. There’s some light cola in the aroma as well, but more chocolate, blackberries, sour red berries, light dust and mineral. Light sweet and sour. Almost medium bodied with a bit dry and puckering feel. Probably infected, still not bad but also not very good.

Versa nel bicchiere di un bel marrone scuro; schiuma alta due dita, beige, aderente con una velatura permanente. L’aroma non risulta molto gratificante: le note di malto torrefatto, zucchero di canna, cioccolato, e le nocciole che dovrebbero caratterizzare la Double Nut; non riescono a imporsi come dovrebbero. Le cose vanno ancora peggio in bocca, dove c’è una forte carbonazione, corpo acquoso e tutte le caratteristiche sopra descritte, che dovrebbero far parte anche delle sensazioni palatali; sono completamente assenti. Voglio propendere per una bottiglia decisamente sfortunata.

Wow! Great brown ale. Wonderful, creamy, chocolatey and slight coffee flavor on the tongue. Beautiful in the glass and a nice head.

Bottle from Kris Wines - London, UK. Color: clear dark brown head with small carbonation and small brown head. Smell: high nuts domination. Sweet malt and nutella notes. Hazelnuts and nuts exposition. Taste: medium body with sweet nuts taste. Sweet hazelnuts notes. Good sweet caramel malt. Superb attenuation and really drinkable. Aftertaste: sweet nuts and caramel malt. Interesting beer, and I definitely like it.
