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.

Beaver (1271) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2004
The Sierra Blanca Nut Brown poured a light reddish-brown with a thin light tan frothy head that went to a bubbly collar and then disappeared.

Its aroma was roasted malt and chocolate.

The flavor was sweet caramel malt, surprisingly lightly roasted, with a light bitter finish. A little on the bland side. It was fairly smooth, but had low carbonation and was a little thinnish and watery.

Overall, I thought it was a little too sweet, and I expected more roastiness. It was not bad though. It displayed some Scottish Ale qualities.

IndianaRed (2331) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 22, 2004
Bottle Pours a deep red-brown with litle head that is a very light tan. This very quickly dissipates leaving thin spotty lacing. Aroma of dark malts, brown sugar, and hay. Very mild and sweet flavor. Can’t detect the hops at all. Finishes a little smokey. A bit thin, not particularly complex. Tasty, very easy going down, and though the ABV is not listed, it tastes quite low.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2004
The beer after disembarking from the 12 ounce brown bottle sets in the glass a transpicuous deep brown with ruby high lights, the head is substantial and spumescent in texture, the color a beauteous light tan and the resultant lace a thick and sticky sheet to obfuscate the glass. Nose is caramel and nutty sweet, fresh and clean to the senses, start has a sweet malt start with the top light in feel to the palate. Finish is benignly acidic, the hops light to the palate, very dry, rather light for my taste but a nice 112 degree Arizona summer day beer, which ain’t nuttin’ to sneeze at in my books.

07.17.04 12oz bottle, courtesy of secret santa. First off, I love the label. Pours a dark burgundy brown. Ample head fades to a lingering trace. Great nutty aromas, hints of coffee, roasty. Not sweet smelling like some browns. Nuttiness really comes through in flavor. Lingering roasted grain flavors, then coffee. Somewhat bland and thin from middle to end, but still solid. Not at all disappointed in my first NM beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUL 6, 2004
Semi transparent brown color,small tan head that faded quickly leaving little behind.The aroma was raosty malt and coffee.Thin bodied brew with a decent flavor of roasted malt and coffee with maybe a hint of chocolate and very mild hops towards the end.The coffee taste lasts for a while on this one in a light way.It could be a little heavier but oveer all i’d have to say it’s another easy drinking brew courtesy of Whaleman.Well worth trying again if i had more.

Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Nice little frothy white head, paired with a dark brown color. Very nutty, coffee aroma. Semi-sweet nut, malty flavor, very quaffable. Comes through later a little thin. leaves a smooth then bitter aftertaste. A decent beer.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - JUN 19, 2004
Malty aroma of hazelnut, dark toast, and caramel. Clear ruby-brown color, thin off-white head. Sweet, nutty, malty flavor, no hops detectable. Medium body, smooth. One of the best examples of a brown ale I’ve tried.

MrRomero (1974) - Nolanville, USA - APR 21, 2004
Poured a cola brown with a medium dissipating beige head. Roasted malt aroma with light hops. Malty flavor with a light nut flavor. Slightly sour finish. Pretty good.

jsquire (3400) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2004
Dark amber out of the bottle with a whispy thin off white head. Burnt sugar nose. Seems thin with some caramel sweetness and faint roasted grain notes. Not very interesting.
