Emmett’s Brewing – Jolly Nut Brown Ale

Emmett's BrewingA HOLIDAY-SEASON DARK (dark) brown ale brewed with crushed nuts and spices. The additives do more to bulk up the body than the flavor, but some of that nutty sweetness does come through as a nice counterpart to the dark malts. Role of hops quite limited to early-to-mid palate. A little too many residual sugars; a bit more attenuation (and higher ABV—currently around 5%) might have made this more interesting.

Served: On tap (Emmett’s Tavern, Palatine)
