7# Marris Otter

.25oz Willamette (4.5%)@30mins

This beer started as an attempt to brew a brown like my favorite brown to buy, which is Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale, and has gone through a few edits along the way. I still can't quite figure out how they give it that awesome hazelnut flavor without adding real hazelnuts.

For the yeast, I've used quite a few, and I like the ringwood the most for what's usually available, I've done it with s-04 and Burton ale as well, but I like 005 the most, I'm planning next time to do it with the Manchester ale, and then Yorkshire after that, when it comes in season.

Tasting Notes:
Aroma: Big Toasty/Bready nose with some coffee and slight earthy hop tones in the background.

Taste: Toasted Nuts, maybe hazlenuts? not as much as the Samuel Smith Nut brown, but it's there. Slight coffee and some carmel, with a slight aftertaste of dark chocolate that melds in with the earthy bitterness of the hops. Mouthfeel is medium, nice and smooth from the oats.


Enjoy.
