Ashen dry-bodied walnut char infiltrates blackened hop bittering, mild black chocolate malting and recessive black coffee niche. Blackstrap molasses, hazelnut, fig and date suffocated by burnt toast astringency.

NV Offshore Ale Co. 'Beach Road' Nut Brown Ale Beer, Martha's

Midlevel copper-toned dark lager coarsens roasted almond-pecan-praline sweetness and caramelized maple malting with phenol hop spicing as well as increasing diacetyl astringency. Subsidiary hazelnut, pine nut, and walnut whims undone by oxidized oiliness a tad.…

Passable English Brown Ale bottled for upper New York’s Ellicottville Brewery by Southern Tier. Hop-charred grain-toasted peanut-shelled cocoa bean salience above dry earthen astringency affects scant hazelnut-pecan-cashew influence, oaken vanilla acridity, and ashen chocolate malting to marble rye spine.

Fine hop-roasted medium-bodied English-styled nut brown session ale places restive caramel-toasted pecan-buttered chestnut surfeit beyond lingered soft-hopped hazelnut-sopped mocha latte sensation. Black cherry, black grape, and black licorice darken sharp corners.…

Blunt medium-bodied amber-grained autumnal brings fresh-roasted kiln malting and wet-leafed hop bittering to dreary brown-sugared chocolate-smoked coffee nuttiness. Diminished peanut-shelled hazelnut-pecan-walnut simmer drops off to earthen peat herbage. On tap, dry Brazil nut bittering counters distant maple-sapped hazelnut chocolate sweetness as interceptive dirty-grained hop-roasted astringency beckons.…

CIGAR CITY BOLITA BROWNHop-roasted brown chocolate frontage of robust full-bodied bitter leads molasses-sugared hazelnut procession atop sooty wood-burnt earthen peat bottom. Hints of cigar ash, tobacco leaf, loose twigs, and charred walnut lie in the balance.…

Sappy molasses sweetness embittered by salty dark-roasted phenol hop splotch as mocha-malted cola nut, Brazil nut, walnut and pecan illusions splurge. Avoidance of expected nuttiness at lackluster charred grain finish kills the mood. Go with Santa Fe’s similarly styled Penetentiary Porter instead.…

Not to be confused with brewery’s altogether fine “Hex” Nut Brown, later version brings more pronounced dark caramel essence to black chocolate richness and well-integrated honey thickness. Aromatic tobacco sweetness and chalky cocoa tinge furthermore differentiate convincing new-sprung interpretation.…

Only a hint of undistinguished malt sweetness shines through bland, inefficient nut brown. Neither dark nor heavy enough, and lacking nutty assertiveness.…

Pedestrian lightweight retains soft buttery nuttiness to nondescript soapy finish. Brewery closed due to fire 2004.…

Tags:

Refreshingly sweet aroma, sharp fruited malting and nut-grained harshness consume chocolate-roasted front end. But dainty hop moderation, cigarette tobacco dryness and phenol cherry souring spoiled by murky bitter tea finish.…

Tags:

Dank grain aroma and unappealing ill-defined metallic nuttiness knock down initial peat-smoked promise substantially. Barley-roasted coffee bittering and astringent plum-cherry smidgen add to extremely dry-hopped mocha-malted finish. Supposed rugged ‘Irish’ styling goes unnoticed.…
