Default Wyeast 3942 in a Brown Ale??

I froze some Wyeast Belgian Wheat 3942 back in 2010 and have successfully fermented 2 consecutive starters bringing the yeast back to life. My next brew is Lil' Sparky's Nut Brown Ale and I was wondering how this yeast would taste in a Brown Ale.

I normally brew wheat beers and maybe I should just wash this starter and purchase the notty that is recommended for this beer.

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Bubblegum Nutty Brown Ale??

Thanks for the feedback. I was leaning towards not using the 3942 also, but needing a second opinion. I like the term "confused" as a good description of how the finished product might turn out.
