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.

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.

Medium head on a brown thick but slightly seee through. Great chocolate nutty cream smells. Light coffee flavor with a nuttiness. Thinner then expected delicious.

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.

Donít know what everyone else didnít like about this, but the aroma was nice roasted malt. Also a nice flavor, roast and coffee.. Palate was medium body, would like thicker, and finished dry.

Pours a dark clear amber brown with mohagany undertones and a creamy beige head. Aroma of brown nuts and creamy coffee. Taste is pleasantly nutty with hints of cream, coffee, malts and a bit of baking chocolate. Excellent.

bottle from Odeed: pours a dark brown with a crimson window when help to light small tan head that is made up of timy bubbles. aroma is very nutty with a nice toffeee malt hints of chocolate and just a real wonderful smoothness to the aroma. flavour is very smooth with lots of roasted nuts and plenty smooth milk chocolate, finishes very nice with a touch of sweetness and a wonderful nuttiness. a great mix of malt, nut, and chocolate like i have never had. freat brown ale. huge thanks to Odeed for introducing me to this beer.

Great coffee aroma to this beer and a smooth finish. I dont think i agree with the bartenders description of a "Guinness like" beer, but very good. I would definitely have another.

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.

On tap at Yosemite Lodge. I have to be careful not to overblow this review since I had mine after a long hike, and it was a most welcome beverage. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a medium off-white head and good lacing. Strong aroma of roasted malts, coffee, and a little chocolate. Taste mimics the aroma, with a creamy coffee mocha flavor. Slightly watery, but otherwise an extremely good offering.
