COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
AleSmith Nut Brown is a tribute to one of our favorite British styles. Deep mahogany in color, its rich, malt-forward flavor profile balances notes of biscuit, mild cocoa and earthy hops. A creamy mouthfeel and full body enhances its drinkability, making Nut Brown an extremely sessionable ale that embodies our commitment to quality.

Sweet, nutty aromas with light coffee undertones. Blackish brown appearance with an thin foam top. Smokey maple and coffee flavoring with an almost chewy texture. Overall, roasted malts are king of this brown ale. Id give this a B rating.

UPDATED: AUG 1, 2012 Pours deep mahogany into a Sam glass. Tan head with excellent retention conglomerates and recedes leaving sheet lacing. Milk chocolate covered brazil nut aromas. Dry with sweet tree nuts and chocolate upfront turning to expresso in the lasting finish. Impressive at only 5%...

3fourths (9299) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2012
cask at Toronado SD. hazed chestnut brown with a small foamy tan head. gorgeous and rich crusty bread and toasted nut nose with a mildly musty, soil, dry wood and mineral English ale yeast character. medium-light body and mild natural carbonation with a decently creamy texture, but it lacks the richness and roundness of body that makes some cask ales such an amazingly textural experience. instead it seems to thin across the middle a little too much for my liking, but the toasted grains with dry chocolate malt is lovely. mild to moderate noble hops give it a buzzing and parched bitterness which matches well with the pasty and dry malt and the musty and slightly-fruity English ale yeast esters. yum.

At alesmith. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head. Aroma is chocolate malts, cocoa, a little earthiness. Thinner bodied. Decent.

Not a big nut brown drinker but this was highly recommended. Dark brown with minimal head and good lacing. Sweet caramel malt and hazelnut nose. Toasted malts and some coffee and sweet nuts, but well balanced by hops. Nice with spicy salami pizza.

An excellent example of an often insipid style. Hazelnut and some dark malt flavors mix for a nice rich treat.

Draught at the brewery. Clear brown liquid with medium foamy off-white head. Aroma of biscuit, roasted malt, dark fruit, light coffee and fruity yeast esters. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of biscuit and some coffee. Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

DarkMagus (527) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 16, 2012
One of my favorite lower-alcohol Alesmith beers. Very dark brown color, but clear. Nutty, toasted malt aroma with hints of coffee, caramel, and cocoa. Very rich flavors of a similar profile. Lots of sweet toasty malts, caramel, cocoa, and a hint of coffee. A very slight yeasty estery character. The mouthfeel was soft and a bit slick, and gives way to a slightly dry finish. A pretty damn good brown ale, I will probably never tire of this one. And now that theyre in bottles its possible to have a decent stash in the fridge!

dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Very enjoyable mild brown. Tastes very roasted, a little chocolate, clean easy finish that was almost crisp (which is unusual for browns). Flavorful yet very easy drinking. I generally think english style beer is flat and boring, this was better than most.
