COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Nut Brown is brewed with English Ale yeast. In English tradition, we use only English Fuggle hops, which are low in bitterness and produce a mild floral hop taste. The complexity of this Nut Brown is created mainly by the Chocolate and Dark Chocolate malted barley.

There is a roasted coffee flavor with hints of chocolate and nutty or nutmeg finish on the back of the tongue. This Nut Brown has the widest spectrum of flavors of any Nut Brown on the market.

Draft sample on the Ruidoso restaurant balcony labeled as Bone Chiller; it is an alias based on their website. Dark chestnut color with a off-white head. Aroma is malty and milk chocolate. Bold taste with a hint of cherry fruitiness and coffee. Nice brown ale.

MadRobin (2814) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - MAR 1, 2016
On tap at Rio Grande at the airport in Albuquerque, NM, where it was served at a ridiculously cold temperature. Clear, dark ruby brown with a small tan head and fair lacing. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, toffee, coffee and nuts. Taste of chocolate, roasted coffee, an interesting nutmeg spiciness, nuts, toffee and very mild roasted malt. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. Might be better if I had half an hour to let it warm to an appropriate temperature. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from bottle into English pint glass. Pours a nice dark brown color, khaki head that goes from 1 finger to a couple mm thick but never completely dissipates. Aroma is very typical of an english-style nut brown - some chocolate notes, malt, typical fuggles hop nose present as well. I’m also getting something slightly earthy, almost funky, but not in a bad way - more mushroom/earth than barnyard. Taste is also typical english brown - lots of malt, chocolate, touch of coffee, mild hop - very nutty. Carbonation level is medium, but it’s nicely prickly on the palate. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, but given the style, not terribly out of whack.

Las Vegas, NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 12 oz bottle. Dark brown pour, decently thick off-white head. Aroma of chocolate and chicory coffee. Flavor has some nice dark chocolate notes, some nuttiness, a bit of licorice in the back end. Nicely textured mouthfeel. Enjoyed this with a picnic lunch after hiking in Dead Horse State Park, Utah.
