Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 10-18-2001

The rich mahogany hue of the Nut Brown is the first thing you will notice. You’ll find subtle hints of both chocolate & coffee. We delicately blend chocolate & caramel malts with four others to make this flavorful, easy drinking beer. The malt character will appeal to those looking for a moderate dark ale, but the smoothness is what will surprise all.

Pours a lovely mahogany with a ruby hue. A fat creamy head of tan foam that fell fast but I tasted some and it was darn creamy. Clear and beautiful beer. Nose is roast, toast a bit of fruit and a bit of coffee. A hint of nuttiness and toffee that comes forward as the beer warms. Taste is mild, roast with an almost burnt edge to it and a slight bitterness. Toast that is breaddy but the breaddiness does not become heavy. Smooth coffee flavor and a hoppy bitterness on the tongue but it has no real flavor if you know what I mean.. Light nutty flavor at first that turns to toffee and nuts as it warms. Easy drinking good character. There is an overall fruity backnote to this beer that I found lovely. Finishes with a malty sweetness to bring it home and a bit of slickness form the medium mouthfeel.

Best I have had of this beer in quite a while. Good job Ithaca.
