COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Well, looks like Grandma’s gone Nuts. This English Style Brown Ale hits you full upside the head with a nose chock-full of toasted Georgia Pecans followed by a rich, full-bodied finish. Just like Grandma’s pecan pie, this baby will have you coming back for more. So, what are you waiting for? Pop the top and give old Grandma a kiss!

Very dark on the pour. Piney and a somewhat burnt caramel flavor. Malty, nutty flavors with a light sweet roasty aftertaste.

Can from Rehills, Newcastle. This extremely dark brown beer pours with a large foamy head. It has a rich milk chocolate and vanilla flavour, pecan nutty notes followed by more warming chocolate and liquorice on the finish. Very Nice!

aste is nutty. What a surprise! But actually, also a fair bit of spiky maltiness. Lingering aftertaste of nuts. Maybe not the most exciting beer I’ve ever had, but it’s nice enough. Little bit of sweetness there. Cola and light bitterness.

EtTuCthulhu (1323) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - APR 27, 2015
The beer pours a very clear reddish brown color with a small light tan head, and the aroma blends heavy chocolate and caramel malts with cocoa powder and nuttiness. Although the aroma is quite sweet and heavy on the nose, the taste is a bit more balanced with a mild sweetness, slight umami, and a touch sour with a chocolatey and nutty aftertaste. The palate fuses a slick and thin texture, light body, and a nearly flat carbonation.

thegreenrooster (3455) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pour is a dark brown with a average tan head. Aroma Is roasted nuts with some toffee and a bit of coffee. Flavor is a big nut with more of a caramel following. Finish leaves a peanut butter on the tongue as this goes down. This was a decent beer if you like nutty beers. A bit one dimensional with the nuts used but it was better than your average brown ale.

16 oz can pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of malts, nutty and some brown sugar. Taste is sweet caramel, nutty and grains.

Pecan with toffee, Werther’s caramel candy, and slight chocolate aromas. Taste follows suit. The flavors in and of themselves are nice and blend fine, but the finish is too sweet, and even a little metallic. I’m guessing the sweetness is a cover for the fairly elevated ABV. I think this could have been a lot better if they lessened the sweetness a little and just gave it a more typical ABV for a brown ale. Some good stuff going on here, but the execution is just not precise.

On tap at 28/65. It poured a brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of pecans, some toffee, caramel and hops. The taste was similar with more nuttiness, some bitterness and a medium body with a sticky mouthfeel. Nice Brown ale.

Can shared at the Kernel during Zwanze 2014. Thanks to...Fergus? Pours clear brown with a big, frothy tan head. The nose holds light dusty cocoa, some brown bread, toasted sugars. Medium sweet flavor with light roast, nice chocolate, some dried fruits, toasty toffee. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Nicely balanced finish with more toasted toffee and mellow cocoa. Nothing wrong here.

Pours brown with a crimson hue and a tan head. The aroma has roasted sweet nutty malt, heavy pecans, brown sugar and maple syrup. It has a smooth medium body with fairly soft carbonation and lots of it. The tastes starts off like the aroma, but even sweeter and a bit less nutty. The finish is a touch astringent and has a bit of earthy hops. Okay, but too sweet for me.
