Art+31 Imperial Brown Ale Chocolate And Hazelnut Nitro—tasting notes
Art+31 is an Imperial Brown Ale from a collab between Browar Stu Mostów and Swedish brewery Beerbliotek, brewed with hazelnut and cacao. It has a rich aroma with hazelnuts, chocolate, caramel and biscuits. Taste is sweet, with lots of hazelnut and a very smooth mouthfeel due to nitrogen. Finish is sweet and long.
English Brown Ales are itself a very varied category, ranging from lighter and hoppy to darker and more caramel and roasted beers. Their American counterparts tend to be more hoppy. Malts used are caramel and chocolate, and hops varieties are mostly English. It is a more malty style than British Bitters, and less roast than English Porters, and with less sweetness than London Brown Ales.
