I accidentally used 1/2 lb instead of 1/4 lb of chocolate malt, and used US-05 instead of Notty, so take my notes however you may:

Smells nutty, very slight fruit notes, and roasted. Like a good bread.

Taste is again, nutty, slightly fruity, and chocolatey. The chocolate is pretty apparent, in a good way. We carbed ours to 2.0 volumes, so I would have liked a bit more of a frothy mouthfeel, so if I were to do it again, I might add some more flaked oats.

Brewed this today for my companies xmas party. If our venue will not allow me to bring in additional alcohol then we will just have to have an after party! I added a bit of cinnamon/ginger to it the last few mins of the boil for my own little addition to this. I am debating adding a bit of vanilla to the 2ndary once it is ready. So far tastes amazing in raw form! OG came in at 1.056.
Primary 1 & 2: Hazelnut Brown Ale
2ndary 1: Empty
2ndary 2: Empty
Bottled/Kegged: Coffee Porter & Pumpkin Porter

I just poured my first pint off the keg. Great heavens this beer is delicious. Definitely a new staple for the house.

[Edit] a buddy of mine just named this the "Jailbate Brown", as it is amazing at just 3 weeks old. Now to come up with a label.
Bottled: Ava Maria Grotto Abbey Ale, Voodoo Coffee Stout, Vanilla Bourbon Porter
On Tap: Simple Cider

I am considering adding some cinnimon sticks and vanila beans to my secondary to give this brew a xmas twist as well. How many of each and how long is recommended?

Just want to chime in my two cents. Pulled a sample of this after 2 weeks in the primary. Tasty brew! Do not hesitate to make this if you enjoy brown ales. This was probably my 10th BIAB and I consider it one of my best. Thanks for sharing the great recipe. Cannot wait to drink this after its been in the bottle.

My first attempt at this became infected, so I'm about to try it again.

This recipe is super! I had a couple cases out last night for a party, split between three different homebrews, this Nut Brown was gone in no time and despite there being plenty other beer everyone asked if I had any more Brown hidden away.

Thanks Lil Sparky and nice work Sir

Kegged last weekend and tapped today. All I can say is that I'm a believe. This is an outstanding recipe. I mashed at 154.5 and fermented with WLP 002 at 63-65f. OG was 1.054, finished at 1.018. Just sweet enough for the MO and crystal to come through. The EKG I finished with just shows up as the beer warms.

Great recipe. This one has earned a spot in my regular rotation
