600ml. Rust colored pour, half finger of white head.

Aroma, toffee like maltiness, quite nutty. Some toasted notes along with tobacco. A little red fruit or apple almost. Faintest herbal hops

Taste, Toffee and peanut brittle. There are large leather, tobacco and leafy components as well. The English type hop bitterness just balances things.

About mid body, ample carbonation. Hides the 8% and drinks quite easily. Just a little much with the nuttiness, but it is as advertised.

Rogue Hazelnut is what comes to mind. I did enjoy this quite a bit, though not something I would reach for two in a row. Definitely much more of an English Brown or Extra. (656 characters)

My first try of this Brazilian brewer.Pours more of a lighter russet color with a minimal head atop.A sweet and fruity nose,much sweeter than expected,the alcohol stands out but the Brazil nuts only faintly.Quite sweet upfront on the palate with more fruitiness and caramel malts,the brazil nuts come in the finish along with mild earthy hops.It's quite sweet but it's got decent flavors,not bad. (396 characters)

Appearance: It pours brilliant reddish amber with a 1” finely bubbled lacy foam cap that quickly dissipates. Smell: It has a nutty nose with some caramel malts with hints of chocolate. Taste: It starts with a big mouth filling creaminess and then light roast flavors emerge with a nutty chocolate finish. Mouthfeel: medium body and medium high carbonation. (359 characters)

Picked this up at the Biergarten in Jenks.... Unfathomable freshness coding on the bottle

Pours caramel with 3+ fingers of quickly falling tan head. Nice head retention & lacing

S: Big nuttiness, toastyness, a touch of leafy & grassy hops

T: A little nuttiness, toastyness, leafy hops & dryness up front, plus a touch of dryness & cinnamon & even a little brown sugar. More cinnamon, more leafy hops, dryness & a touch of brown bread, Amaretto & more brown sugar. Finishes with leafy hops, tobacco, a touch more cinnamon, toastyness & dryness; almost gave this a 4.0

MF: Medium bodied, soft carbonation, a bit thinner than I hoped for, but warming

This one grew on me as it warmed, a different breed of brown. I am fairly impressed by this, I look forward to trying other offerings from these guys! Fairly easy to drink for the ABV (837 characters)

Obscure find at the Beer Temple, a stout oddly-shaped bottle with a bear on it.
For once I don't have to thank my wife's aunt for a new Brazilian beer...

Color is a very dark and saturated reddish copper, lots of visible carbonation, an irregular collar of foam around the edges of the glass, and a floating island of surface skim.

Aroma is pretty sweet with a nutty malt character, to be honest it really resembles a German maibock (not too farfetched considering Brasil's history).

Sweet and smooth, a bit of lagerish astringency, noticeable alcohol after the swallow, as well as a tannic, nutty bitterness. Rich maltiness, caramellized sugars, again fairly German in structure. Medium bodied with medium-low carbonation. Overall pleasant, a fairly big Brazilian beer worth trying. (789 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

This one pours a clear brown color with a thin weak off white head that settles fairly quickly and leaves no lacing down the glass.

The nose is dominated by he sweet malt. There is a touch of nuttiness and some sour notes. kind dull all around though.

The taste is an odd bitterness as if the nuts offer up some additional bitterness in addition to the hops. The flavor is off balanced. not great

The mouthfeel is adequate.

Overall not a very good beer and rather disappointing. I was expecting something better and more interesting. I recommend passing on it unless you want the novelty of brazil nuts in your beer. (620 characters)

Brown Ale? Not really.

Clear dark amber color with a medium tan colored head. At best this is a red ale.

Smells strongly of English hop leaf. Herbal with a scent of leather and tobacco. Slight butter, toffee and caramel aromas. Very aromatic ale.

Starts out malty and herbal with a good hop bite. Tastes like a Double English Pale Ale. Toffee and tobacco with a medium hop bite in the finish. Leather and herbs, this is tasty.

Mouthfeel is good.

Overall a damn tasty beer but it isn't a Brown Ale. (502 characters)
