I bought a six pack after visiting MBC, so I assume it is very fresh. I have poured it into a British-style pint glass.

The beer pours a clear, ruby-red with little head or lacing. The beer has a strong chocolate and nut smell with a faint pine smell. The taste is of nuts, chocolate, and a faint bitter pine that is inviting and pleasant. The finish is dry and chocolaty, and the mouthfeel is full without being cloying or syrupy.

I tasted this at the brewery, and I was so impressed that I bought a sixpack. Therefore, I might be super-imposing my positive impressions and experiences at the brewery onto this review/tasting. However, I gladly do it because I really enjoy this beer.

Mammoth Double Nut Brown is an incredibly dark brown ale that's almost opaque. The coffee ice cream colored head is dense and slowly thins to a film with oily bubbles and dense lacing. A deep, dark roast coffee aroma sits on a nutty, slightly sweet malty scent. There's possibly a touch of mint in the nose. It's full bodied and very smooth with a long, ashy finish. It tastes a touch sweet, but there's enough bitterness to balance it out. It tastes nutty-- walnutty, even. The deep, soft sweetness lasts through the finish. The bitterness is secondary here, but it's leafy and appropriately strong. It's very drinkable on account of all that big, bold, brown flavor.

Had this at a tasting with some friends and I kept having to refill my glass. Standard brown ale I would say but the chocolate finish really stands out. It's not overbearing but adds a nice element to the beer. A really good beer that I would recommend to anyone who is a fan of brown ales.

Pours a dark brown color and has a fairly thin off white head. The smell is sweet and vanilla chocolate with heavy roasted nut. The flavor is very nutty like roasted pistachio mild sweetness a little bitterness. The mouthfeel is very carbonated. I'm a real big fan of this beer.

Gold Medal Winner World Beer Cup Brown Porter Category! Ok, sold...let's learn more and find out for myself!

To Note - the specimen here is labeled 5.5%, not 6% as described on BA. Just stating the facts...

Appearance - Dark brown, almost black with a reddish tint in both the 12oz Tulip and Guinness Perfect Pint Glass I Poured both bombers in. Head is 2" from a simi-aggressive pour, solid retention and lacing throughout each sip.

S - Pretty damn aromatic of roasted malt, Straight up Coffee, semi-sweet bitter chocolate, and a nuttiness one would look for in a fantastic Brown Ale.

T - Follows Smell. Nutty brown, followed by dark roasted Porter flavors of dry coffee and chocolate. Nuttiness and Coffee dominate for the most part. Follows the description of a "Brown-Porter" to a T. Equal parts...Well done. If you're a fan of both styles...BUY THIS BEER.

M - At 5.5%, you cant ask for much more. Nice dry finish making this sessionable and drinkable. It's NOT THIN for the ABV my friends...it's just right and lively carbonation. Finishes nice and dry as I mentioned, begging for more sipping. Easy drinking beer.

O - Brown/Porter hybrid knocked out of the park for the style IMHO!!!. Equal high quality parts both. Big on nose and palate while being a easy beer to session. Well Done Mammoth!!! Not my favorite beer from them, but for the style...this is possibly their best offering. Again Mammoth, BRAVO!
