March 19th, 2015 - It's porter night with Mammoth's Brewing Double Nut. I wish I was drinking this next to a fireplace at a ski chalet, but no so luck. Appreciably brown in the color, it has a thinner, velvety head, and a tangy note in the nose, the lactic tang resounding with a yogurt funk. There's also some apple pie in the aroma, with spices and sweetness. Espresso leads the way in the flavor on the foam, with a good malty bill underneath. The lighter body is excellent too, but I keep coming back to the foam too. While the flavor is unremarkable, that body is epic.

Good brown beer but pours nearly black so takes away from the brown label. Taste is like a malty, chocolatey nutty ale but no nuts or chocolate are in the ingredients. But had this beer in Yosemite waiting for the road to clear and hit the spot for the moment. But should've had it the night before but mammoth brewery closed hour early and couldn't enjoy at brewery. So shame on the brewery for closing early.

With a dark mahogany color, this beer has a smooth, malt-forward taste of nicely roasty milk chocolate, dark bread and toasted biscuit with a smidgeon of dark fruits and even black tea. These flavors combine together very well, all the way into the aftertaste. It’s nicely sweet with a fantastic mouthfeel for the style. Meanwhile, the aroma is very pleasing to the nose, which is very similar to the flavor. Along with the Black Toad ale from Trader Joe’s, this is THE alternative to the outstanding Nut Brown Ale from Goose Island Brewery. That brewery needs to bring that back! Other good nut brown ales to try are those from the Carolina Brewing Company, the Santa Fe Brewing Company and even the Coconut Molasses Brown Ale from Duck Foot Brewing Company. While not a nut brown, the Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale from New Belgium Brewing is also worth the mention.

Black with fairly small head for a porter. Smells of cocoa powder. Tastes of chocolate with a tart, vaguely fruity aftertaste. Overall, the taste is a little weak and the mouthfeel is too watery.

Pours similar to Coke that's gone flat. Fizzy up front, fading to nothing. No head, no lace. Zero. Nearly opaque, extremely dark brown tint. No bottle date, but doesn't smell off, actually smells quite nice. Very nutty and roasty, hazelnuts and fresh roasted coffee. Hot chocolate. Not bad.

Doesn't taste bad either. Lots of hazelnut, acorn, light almond and tree bark notes. Very earthy. Roasted malt and coffee come through nicely, accompanied by smooth chocolate, toffee, a bit of dark fruit, oats and grain.

Light bodied Porter. Light carbonation. Light getting roastiness. Gas station coffee.

A very unattractive brew that comes through with some good flavours and finish, but needs some nuancing. Ultimately leaves me unsure how to feel about it.
