Nut Brown is the perfect seasonal for fall. Its chestnut color and medium body reminds one of the turning leaves and beautiful fall colors. Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown has a complex malt character without being too sweet, and is nicely balanced with the traditional Golding hop. At nearly 4% alcohol by weight, it will warm the bones and soothe the soul.

It takes a while for the nuttiness to break through, but when it does, it’s great. Sampled at the University of Oregon campus location.

On tap at Imbre Hall. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. The aroma is light nutty notes and some toast. The flavor is a bit of lactose, some mellow toasted malts, a bit of berries. Good.

Portland trip. Sampled on draft this beer poured a dark black color with a medium sized soapy tan head. The aroma was faint sweet malts. The flavor was malty, nutty, somewhat sweet and slightly bitter. Bitter finish. Medium body. Ok.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 15, 2010
On tap at the Spar Cafe in Olympia. Pours a murky brown with a thin white head. Has a disgusting aroma of diacetyl. The vinegary flavor is indicative of an infection. This beer was absolutely horrible.

riversideAK (6078) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Nose is mostly toasted nuts with a slight hint of roast. Pours brownish red with a minimal head. The flavor is also very toasy and nutty with soft roast and underlying sweetness. Easy to drink. Very basic but not flawed.

On tap at mill creek. No aroma. Decent nutty flavor with a bit of spice. But very thin. Drinkable but I wouldn’t get again.

gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2009
Red brown appearance with an initial cream head that fades quickly. Aroma is faint, of brown sugar and hey, some nuttiness. Some coffee and cocoa but the nutty brown flavor lingers. Basic but not bad.
