CLIMAX NUT BROWN ALE

Swampy tan-headed, brown-bodied dark ale invites roasted nuttiness to sharp hop char and creamy mocha malting for up-front maltose penetration. Walnut-skinned peanut shelling lightly embitters maple-sugared hazelnut, butternut and cola illusions. Perhaps less assertive and gentler than richer nut browns, but mild silken nature perfect as crossover fare for pilsner-lager fans.

ROGUE HAZELNUT BROWN NECTAR

Milky porter-like mocha influence picks up distinct nuttiness overriding chocolate chip cookie, hazelnut coffee, marzipan-pasted butterscotch, and sugared fig sweetness as well as a symphony of secondary flavors. Black chocolate, vanilla, and maple undertones mesh well with chestnut, almond, and pecan illusions at midst as imminent rum raisin climax tags creamy hazelnut-candied mocha finish. Absolutely splendid.

SAMUEL SMITH’S NUT BROWN ALE

Samuel Smith churns out such world class brews is it any surprise this may be the best nut brown ale on the market? Rich mocha malt penetration, sweet yeast resonation and enduring chestnut finish retain crisp distinction. Maple-sugared honey-sapped hazelnut, pecan, and almond detected at backend. A shade lighter and less creamy than Sam Smith’s Oatmeal Stout.
