Pours a clear dark amber body with a wispy off-white head. The nose is nutty, a little sweet, a bit of huskiness. The flavor is a little too thin though, rather watery and weak with some minimal nutty malt and some thin caramel. Light bodied and thin with light carbonation. Pretty boring stuff.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings. This is a very tasty beer with a nutty flavour and a slightly sweet finish.

A pretty solid brown ale with ample nuttiness and some chocolate and brown sugar notes. Pours lightly hazy deep copper brown with a very wispy off-white head. Lightly sweet nutty finish. Decent. ronaldtheriot (2037) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Bold City’s Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale has a medium, beige head, a murky, lighter-brown ale, with immense powdery sediment, which makes a lava lamp effect, following the "swish & pour", and moderate lacing left behind. The aroma is of mild chocolate, sweet brown bread, lighter syrup, a hint of coffee, and a touch of pecan oil. Taste is of all those elements, with low-level bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the light or thin side, and Duke’s Cold Nose finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT hayduke (5742) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Sampled at an esbls gathering. In the tasting glass was a dark muddy brown color. Tan head. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate and nuts. Medium body; Flavor is the roasted malts, with nuts still showing. The finish is dry, earthy, and lightly bitter. Quite decent. . Strykzone (7848) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 18, 2016
Sampled at esbls. Dark brown and mostly clear. Beige foam. Earthy grain. Light cocoa. Kind of thin but a syrupy something. Caramel comes late. Ok.
