Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Nutty Brewnette is an American-style brown ale. A blend of four different dark malts contributes to a flavor profile that is sweet with “nutty” notes. A healthy dose of hops makes this beer hoppier and more balanced than most English brown ales.

Served on tap in non-frosted pint glass.

This brown ale was very dark, almost black and opaque with a 1/4 inch tan head.

Stong malty aroma with some fresh hop odor.

The ale had a strong malty backbone with hints of molasses and a noticeable licorice taste. This was quite unlike most brown ales I have tasted, both American and British. Dispite the sweetness, the ale never becomes cloying because of the hop presence.

This was a medium bodied ale that left an after taste of licorice and malts on the tongue.

This was far from my favorite interpretation of an ale style I rarely drink. If I am in the mood, I prefer the style of Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale. I had one pint and that was enough. Certainly worth trying, If this is one of your favorite styles.

Perhaps my favorite beer yet at BJs. Pours a dark brown to maroon with a lasting tan head. Smell is very nutty, and toasty malt. Taste is similar and nutty with a hint of hops. A bit watery but not as much as some others. Creamy, easy drinking and simple, but a nice brown ale overall.

Sample at the Columbus location. Clear dark brown color with a medium off-white head that has decent retention. Stringy lacing. The aroma is nutty and has malty characteristics as well. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture. The flavor is sweet malt, nuts and soft hops. The finish is mildly bitter and does not linger much. Aside from the clever name, it is average all around.

Pint from BJs in San Bernardino

Pour was a deep brown color with a thick vanilla colored head

Smell was purely nuts and malt, good balance of roast and sweetness

Taste was amazig and smooth, went great with cajun chicken and bacon pizza

Favorite brew from these guys and will probably get it every time I go back there

This beer was poured a dark brown with a slight hint of red, the head was a slightly tan white that did not last long at all. There was a minimal amount of lacing. The aroma of this beer was fairly week, but there were hints of chocolate and toasted malt.

The taste was a typical brown ale flavor, similar to Newcastle. The were signs of chocolate and malt, and a slight hint of hops though not very much. The mouthfeel was ok with the CO2 being just right, but the beer seemed a little thin or watery.

All in all not a bad beer, but not my first choice from a place that I have had some really good beers.

This beer sits a pretty, brown-amber color in my glass, it is topped with a wispy, light brown head. The aroma is malty with notes of toasted malt, toasted nuts, and caramel. The taste is lightly sweet with caramel notes up front, but then moves to a solid hoppy bitterness. This beer is quite light and palate cleansing, though it has solid flavors with a clean crisp bitterness that is the most noticeable feature of the finish. There is a nice nuttiness here that is from lightly toasted malts, there is a bit of a fresh from the oven biscuit topped by honey type thing going on here as well. There is a nice fruitiness here as well with notes of cherry being prominent. This is a solid Nut-Brown that has a nice, added hoppiness to it. This beer is quite well made and the flavors begin to meld a bit more, allowing the beer to really sit on the palate as this beer warms up.
