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.

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.

BBB63 (6037) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 2, 2004
Reddish brown hue with a short frothy off-white head and good lace. The aroma hints of cashews, caramelized malts, mild coco flakes, faint aromatic hops, and a off band-aid ester. The taste starts with a zesty and caramel presence. Undertones of nuts and mocha found within. The short finish displays a bready and bitter combo with a hint of coffee. The mouthfeel is good for a brown ale, lively and refreshing, dry and chalky in the finish. Just average but good enough for a drink or two, it is not nutty enough however. Thanks again Eric for the bottle.

out of all the nut browns that I have tried, this is my favorite! And since I am new at this rating thing I will have to work on building my critique comments and learn the lingo. please be patient with me.

steview (1019) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 8, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2003 nice, subtle, sweet coco aroma. dark brown and ruby, pretty. cute frothy head, slightly tan. a bit sweet, a bit chocolate, a bit sour, a bit cremey. a little toasty little nut brown, good brew, but i'd actually rather have their pils! good thanks to taverntannerboy.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 26, 2003
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2003 Brown to deep garnet color, a tan head that is a bit thin. This beer, like the rest from this brewery, is brilliantly clear. Notes of roast malt, a nuttiness, and a fruitiness all together in the aroma. Nice malty beer. Fairly fruity tasting as well. The promised nuttiness in the nose is not as apparent in the taste. Appropriately there is not much hop presence anywhere. This allows for the malt to come through. This beer does not quite deliver though. It is good just missing some nut brown malt complexity.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2003
Pours a nice dark brown, with thin white head that leaves promptly. Light chocolate aroma, some malt. Mmm, caramel and nuttiness flavors stand out the most, some chocolate. Very nice body with a pleasing finish. A very good brown.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 23, 2003
Nice, simple, thin session beer with fine chocolate notes and a long sweet finish. Finally a Nut brown that doesn't have "nutty" in my rating!!!

Terminus (3237) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - OCT 14, 2003
bottle-im still not much of a fan of browl ales, but this one was pretty good. The aroma was the best i have ever smelled for this style-normal brown ale appearance and flavor was a more on the chocolate side. not to shabby!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 21, 2003
Deep ruby auburn color. Aroma is very nutty with TONS of caramel, almost like unfermented caramel malt with lots of coffee and chocolate notes to boot, very rich for a nut brown, almost like fresh made wort mixed in the end. Flavor is a little more bitter but the rich caramel and chocolate is very present. Finish was wet and slightly sweet and bitter. Overall this is a great nut brown with lots of good flavors associated with the style. The toffee/caramel notes in this one are exceptionally well pronounced. Thanks dmwhal!

Good malt aroma. Body is well balanced with the malt and nut flavors. Finishes drier with each sip. A decent brew.
