I’m not sure if I had the bourbon aged version since it was on tap at the Omni in Jax. This was a delicious beer nonetheless. Try it.
Smoky and leathery up front. Finish is nutty and malty. Not a fave probably not going todo this one again.

Hints of roasted nuts and cocoa nibs.
Flavor: Moderately strong. Malt dominated. Lightly bitter. Hints of caramel and roasted nuts. Light earthy hops.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
Overall: a good, mainstream version of the style. Improved with warming. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2017
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.

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 (1936) - 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 (5212) - 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 (7363) - 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. geologyguy (1604) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2016
