BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Peak Organic Brewing Company
Maine, United States

Style: English Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Nut Brown Ale starts out very smooth, like an English-style Brown Ale. The use of Chocolate Malt, Munich Malt, and Hallartau Hops give this beer a crisp, nutty finish. Peak Nut Brown is a delectable beer loaded with complex, differentiated flavors that don’t overwhelm the palate, making it a perfect dark beer for food pairing.

Poured from bottle into chilled glass mug.

A: Dark copper, translucent with visible carbonation. Thin, off-white cap with swiss cheese holes that dissipates to ring. Nice lacing on glass all the way down.

N: Not much happening in the nose until the beer warms up quite a bit. Faint caramel/honey malt component, dried fruit, subtle hop note

T: front end is quite sweet, followed by mild bitterness at the end that is once again overcome by malty sweetness into the aftertaste. Aftertaste of sunflower seed, caramelized malts, whole-wheat bread, black tea (not for bitterness but the earthy component)--finish on the palate is long and lasting, very nice.

MF: a little prickly from carbonation, surprisingly light bodied--medium at most. more poundable than other browns

O: True to style, this is a malt forward offering. It is not as heavy as other browns that I have had, which I consider a plus. Don't let the subdued aroma fool you, There is a lot to offer on the palate. A solid choice for the style. Try it.

Pours a finger of head on a clear brown body.
The aroma is dry hay, barnyard and grain.
The taste at first nutty, toasted malt, then finishes with a sharper bitterness.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
The taste finishes weird and the texture was too thin.

Dark brown pour with thin tan head, color is excellent. Smell is mild malt and slightly nutty. Taste is also a bit underwhelming with a sweetness that quickly fades to a clean nut finish. Only real nit is it seems a bit overcarbonated. Otherwise very drinkable in quantity!
