Bottled. A deep red beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of nuts, roasted malt, caramel, and some spices. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, caramel, nuts, and spices, leading to a dry spicy finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of JohnC. Pours a dark brown with a warm reddish tint and an off-white head. Sweet nutty and coffeeish aroma. Medium body, hard roasted malts, coffee and bitter chocolate. A little vanilla sweetness in the finish. Pleasant. 221109 DYCSoccer17 (3696) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 30, 2009
22 ounce bottle from Nugget in Davis, CA. Aroma is a pungent roasted coffee one. There is is a little sweet chocolate thing going on as well as some chalk dust smells. I really can’t get past the chalk smell. Virtually transparent dark brown/mahogany body with a fluffy tan head. Has a nice sweet, chocolate flavor to start, which becomes a bit metallic and toasted/roasted in the middle. Lightly bitter to finish. Drinks pretty well. Still can’t figure out the chalkiness in the nose. Thankfully, it’s not in the flavor. Beerman6686 (6607) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2009
This poured a medium brown color with an off white head. Aroma was sweeter malts, nutty and some toffee. Flavor was upfront munich malt, and toffee, some roastidness, followed by a sweet aftertaste. dwyerpg (6180) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 27, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Big discrepancy here. I really found this super heavy and way too malty/nutty this time.
Original 4.3 Definitely has a nutty aroma. Flavor is a great nutty hop and a big nutty hop as well. This is beer is fantastic and is easily my favorite nut brown ale.

Sweet caramel coffee aroma with some subtle smokiness. Appearance is a deep dark brown with a thick tan head - almost stout-like. Flavor is sweet and smoky malt. Some toasted nut flavor as well. A somewhat watery finish with tight carbonation. Little bitterness aside from the coffee notes. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - SEP 14, 2009
Nice dark brown color with reddish hints and an offwhite head, I thought that this beer was pretty tasty.
The aroma was of coffee and some chocolate notes, the flavor was dry with nutty roastiness. Very tasty. Plamadude30k (122) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Nicely earthy and nutty, with a bit of coffee and chocolate. Some dark fruits also sneak in there, but are a bit harder to find. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a nice rich coffee brown with almost no head. Nose is rich with nuts and coffee. Flavors of nuts, chocolate, coffee, and dried fruit. Mouth is rich and smooth. nice medium body. This is an excellent brown ale! Becomes a little sweet at times but a wonderful flavor profile for a medium bodied beer. yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2009
Mammoth Double Nut Brown is an incredibly dark brown ale that’s almost opaque. The coffee ice cream colored head is dense and slowly thins to a film with oily bubbles and dense lacing. A deep, dark roast coffee aroma sits on a nutty, slightly sweet malty scent. There’s possibly a touch of mint in the nose. It’s full bodied and very smooth with a long, ashy finish. It tastes a touch sweet, but there’s enough bitterness to balance it out. It tastes nutty-- walnutty, even. The deep, soft sweetness lasts through the finish. The bitterness is secondary here, but it’s leafy and appropriately strong. It’s very drinkable on account of all that big, bold, brown flavor.
