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

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.

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.

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.

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.

Penny copper colored pour with an off-white head. The beer has a really interesting smell that seems to be half alcohol and half nut. The flavor is mainly nut and malt based with a bit of caramel and bread also present. Finishes with a sweet nutty flavor.

Pours a decent looking fizzy big bubbled head that hits almost 1 finger and fades semi slowly with layers of lacing, over a semi hazy darker chestnut cranberry maroon colored beer.

Nose starts just like an ESB, earthy slightly herbal bittering hops, a bit of a Hedgerow like hop character, under that is a nice malty profile, caramel candy malts, a definite nuttiness, an almost chestnut toasty but slightly fruity nut character, and some fruitiness.

Taste brings similar profile to the aroma, but starting with sweet candy malts, very sweet, toasty reddish malts and caramel but quite a bit of a molasses like character, as well as nutty flavors, again the semi sweet earthy nut characters but not really toasty of chestnut, more of a cashew like nut, and a bit of brown sugar like flavors. Hops are there as well, again ESB like hops with more Hedgerow herbal earthy grassy hop profile, not my fav hop profile at all, but that doesn't mean it's not done well. Finish is sticky sweet, quite sweet still and quite sticky, toasty malts lingering, lots of candy with more molasses and more sweet nuts covered in sugar, and a bit more herbal earthy grassy bittering hops.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb, a hint of booze but hidden fairly well.

Overall not bad, way too sweet for my tastes, and the herbal earthy ESB style hops are not great, but as that seems to be what they were going for it's not bad. The booze is hidden well, and teh nuts are there but get a bit drowned by the bitter hops and sticky sweet malts.
