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.

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.

Had on draft at Yosemite National Park’s pub... Rich nutty flavor... Leaves a nutty finish on the palate and a hint of hoppy bitterness... Clear brown in color.. No distinct aroma... Great beer...

12oz bottle, no date. Pours a medium brown--deep ruby in the glass--with a small light tan head, fair retention. Nice and roasty--kinda like a weakened porter (which I kinda guess is what a brown ale is)--with some roasted peanuts in their shells. There is also some toasted malts, milk chocolate, and a little sweet caramel. The flavor seems to add a bit of lactose up front, but still has a good amount of roasted malts. The nuttiness is lessened, and the finish is dry, roasty bitterness at a 3. Medium body with light carbonation. Pretty decent.

~Pours a dark brown with creamy brown head. ~Roasted malt with chocolate, nuts and caramel. ~Roasted nutty flavor, flavor is fairly weak. ~Thin feel. Slight nutty finish. ~Enjoyable brew. I like the nutiness. Taste needs a bit of a boost.

This dark brown ale poured with a generous tan head and a coffee aroma. There is a heavy dose of chocolate in the flavor and a coffee sensation remains on the palate. This is a pretty good sweet brown ale.

One of the better browns I’ve had. Nice and sweet with a little bit of body to fit the choco-taste. Nice little beer and brewery these guys have going.

12oz via my girlfriend’s dad, blue bottle not red. Pours reddish brown with a tan head. Nose is sweet and chocolaty. Taste is sweet with touches of cocoa and other notes. An above average brown. Nice, thanks Steve!

Bottle. Pours a dark, slightly red tinted brown with a light tan head. Aroma was surprisingly good; nuts, caramel, fruit, with a light touch of butterscotch. Flavor had a good amount of coffee, more than expected. Alot of nuttiness and cocoa as well. A hint of fruit. Overall it was pretty tasty for the style.

22-ounce bomber. Pours a chocolatey mess, but not in a bad way. Just a little light comes through to reveal a reddish body within. Aroma is indeed of a typical porter, as the bottle states this is, flavor adds pecan and hazelnut, chestnut to the mix. Also some cheap Denny’s coffee. Overall, not bad.
