Style: American Brown Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.90%

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.

On tap in Plano, Texas.

The beer pours a light brown color with an off-white head. The aroma has a lot of cocoa and a little bit of toffee mixed in. The flavor is more of the same, with some nice toffee and light cocoa notes. The beer is very dry overall. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. One of the best year-round beers from BJ's.

Very dark for a brown, with a nitro-like, soft, large blanket and creamy lace.

Smell is nutty toast and roasted malt, slightly aerated. Burnt caramel emerges as it warms.

This tastes closer to an Irish stout than a brown, with chocolate and roasted malt that is semi-bitter. A little tang with coffee and nuts develops.

Very light and thin, finishing semi-dry.

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.

Had this on tap at the El Paso, TX location.

A: Served a mahogany color with a tan head that faded to decent lacing.

S: Aroma of roasted malt and nutty with a hint of chocolate sweetness.

T: Taste was a mixture of roasted malt and nuts with a mild chocolate sweetness and touch of bitterness and a fairly dry finish.

F: Medium body, smooth and creamy. Has a nice balance.

D: Another nice beer from BJ's. this brew went well with my pizza. Worth a try.
