I am a fan of nut brown ales and I think the folks at Beer works did a respectable job here. Nutty, chocolate, smooth, very drinkable.
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a dark brown color with a finger’s worth of eggshell white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Light messy lace.
The aroma had some strong notes of roast, chestnut/pecan, toast, cocoa powder, light coffee grinds and ends with a little bit of earthy hops.
The flavor lent a hand to the sweetness initially and then mildly brings in the roast slightly. Some of which blended into the aftertaste and rubs the finish in the same sort of way.
The feel was about medium bodied, perhaps just a tad under. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good too.
Overall, good brown ale worthy of having again. Ungstrup (38932) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2015
Draft. A dark brown beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel, and lighter notes of bread and fruits, leading to a dry finish. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Boston Beer Works Nut Brown pours a chestnut brown color with a roasted nut aroma. Flavor is simple with a good mixture of roasted malt mixed with a mile sweetness. The sweetness is caramel and molasses. A refreshing and bubbly beer that was easy drinking and enjoyed near Fenway Park. edgallow (4627) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Draft sampler pours brown with a off white head. Aroma of malts, spice and coffee. Taste is malty, nutty and some chocolate. Cybercat (6335) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a nearly opaque dark chocolate brown with a fairly thick tan head. Aroma has a malty core with notes of caramel and cloves and a snippet of cinnamon added to it. Roast malt flavor trots cinnamon, caramel, clove and even slight molasses notes across the palate. Lively, fizzy texture is fairly firm, and leaves a tingly feeling on the palate and on the pipes as it heads downstairs. Beans, beans, the musical fruit...

12 oz draft pour for about $5. Brown with almost no head. Aromas of malt and beer. Fairly interesting flavor, it has a fruity bittersweetness I associate with really dark chocolates. Maybe a bit overboard on the dark malt however, tastes almost burnt. This is a totally inoffensive and OK brown ale, nothing to seek out but nothing to avoid. If you’re at Beer Works and want a brown ale go for it. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Draft at Logan. Fairly clean brown, bubbly beige head, and mild lace. Nose of not, roast, sweet caramel, chocolate. Medium to light body. Very roasty in the taste, mild bitterness. Foxbush (2141) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Draft at Logan Airport Nice looking ale with a dark brown color with a thin biege head. The aroma was mild and of raosted malt. The taste of burnt malt was present with chocolate. The body was light to medium with soft carbonation. Nice finish with roasted malt and nuts. Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - OCT 7, 2013
Draught. This is a simple little brown ale that lacks character and feels very thin.
