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.

Had this one on draft.

Light brown hue.

Minimal khaki head; minimal lace.

Banana bread nose.

Medium thick mouthfeel.

Banana & cream soda; tastes Belgian. Easy to drink if unexpected for the style.

These Brazilian Colorado brewing companies recently started showing up in Texas, and this was the second beer from the brewery I've had. The first was a delicious stout. This brown hazelnut brew was just as good as the stout.

Poured into a snifter. Pretty shade of brown. The nose is sweet malt, bananas, unripe pear, and faint clove. The taste is malty sweet yet nutty. Finishes sweet in the throat. It's a big beer at 8% ABV, but it's not boozy. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and smooth.

On the whole, I'd say this is a delicious beer. I can't say I have much experience with Brazilian beers, but if I try more like this one I'll be thrilled. Great to see a new craft beer market emerging in an unexpected place.

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.

600 ml bottle was poured into a nonic glass.

Appearance: A two finger whitish brown head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a hazy copper brown color with good vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Nutty, fruity, caramel, sweet, bready, toasted, and a little coffee.

Taste: Sweetness comes through on the palate with the nuts, fruitiness, coffee, chewy grains, and some bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, a little booze, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: 2nd beer from these guys and quite happy with each one. I wish more of these made it up here to Boston. Only a small handful of stores has them in stock. Little do people know how good these beers are.

A - Hazy brown, large white foamy head.

S - Nutty and sweet, slight hint of fruits.

T - Unique nut flavor sets this apart from other nut brown ales, sweet with some toffee and caramel notes.

M - Smooth and a bit creamy.

O - Very enjoyable. Unique take on nut brown. A little sweeter than most. Surprised to see this is 8.0%, alcohol is hidden very well.

Pours a slightly cloudy copper brown color. Has a sweet smell to it. First reaction is " that's a nut brown " then you realize that is not a standard nut brown. Little sweeter and creamy on the tounge but not creamy like a oatty stout. Not bad. Could have another bottle one of these days. Think it's an English ale yeast but not 100 % on that.

Brown copper color with a two finger beige head with short retention.
Nice aroma of cocoa, lots of nuts, bread malt, a hint of vanilla and caramel.
Predominant nutty flavor with earthy and herbal hops, some spicy yeast and a bit of dark fruits. Castanha do pará is clearly noticeable here. Dry aftertaste with a medium bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation, a slightly creamy sensation. Alcohol of 8% abv is superbly hidden.
Beer with great execution, not super complex but does well the job. Castanha do pará bitter nuts matched perfectly with the beer, giving complexity to the bitter profile. If you like these nuts it is well worth it to prove this.
