Mammoth Brewing 'Double Nut Brown' Porter

Mammoth Double Nut Brown Porter 1
Mammoth Brewing 'Double Nut Brown' Porter. 5.5% abv. 25 IBU. Dark brown, nearly black. Finger of tan head. Fair retention, nice lace. Nose of roasted malt, ground coffee, cocoa, wood, herbal. Front taste of coffee, bittersweet chocolate, earthy hops on the back end. Aftertaste of dark chocolate, toffee, earthy hop sustain. Medium body. Mouthfeel is warm, carby, slightly thick.

This is an excellent brown ale. The aromas and flavors of coffee, chocolate, and herbal notes mix well and are present throughout. The hop profile stands tall without overtaking the malt flavors. A solid beer and an excellent example of its category. Well recommended.

From the brewery:

"Reminiscent of coffee and dark chocolate, this dark ale exhibits a mild sweetness and finishing roast dryness. This big ol’ Brown Porter is a Mammoth legend. And what’s nice to know is that no nuts were harmed or used during the brewing of this beer."

"Mammoth Brewing Company has been brewing award-winning, handcrafted beers in the Eastern Sierra since 1995. The most important ingredient in our beer is our water, and the High Sierra has some of the best water in the world, fresh out of the mountains and lakes that surround us. A locals' favorite, this dark ale is reminiscent of coffee and dark chocolate and is our version of a brown porter. Double Nut Brown exhibits a mild sweetness and a finishing roasty dryness."
