So I'm always on the quest for the nuttiest beer I can find. There's something about a toasty aftertaste that drives me to great lengths.
Chose this one at Father's Office the other night after a long day: Nautical Nut Brown Ale by AleSmith Brewing Company. Has an off-white head, and smells amazing--very nutty--hazelnut. The taste was good but not nearly so much nut was present as a chocolate, toasty taste. Very smooth, and got better with warmth. Complex, well-balanced. A good brown ale, but heavy on toffee/caramel/chocolate flavors.
