I have an Amnerican brown recipe that I really like that's won some awards, but I dunno about the "nut" part.

Not a problem, I would really appreciate your recipe if you do not mind publishing it.

Cheers!

There are several in the wiki, a couple of them Denny's: http://wiki.homebrewersassociation.org/10CAmericanBrownAle

An American Brown and an English Brown are pretty distinct, though. It's probably best to sit down with a pint of Cabin Fever and a copy of the style guidelines and figure out which is closer to what you want.
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

I looked on New hollands Website. 

They say burnt carmel dark fruit and raisin flavors...Special B, English Dark Crystal, or C120 are likely here.
They say rye..so maybe a couple pounds of rye.
It has more of a malty sweet flavor so Id lean toward Maris Otter for the base.
English Chocolate is an obvious choice for the chocolate notes and color.
Roast---Victory perhaps?

Its atleast a start! Id try something like this(and I apologize I dont have a calculator in front of me for gravity and such.

6% alch

Shoot for an OG around 1.065 or so

Maris Otter 10-12 lbs
Rye Malt- 2 lbs or so
Victory Malt- 2 lbs or so
Chocolate Malt-3/4 lbs
English Dark Crystal- 1/2 lbs.

Maybe London ESB or West Yorkshire yeast. I dont remember the hop character much and havent had the beer in a while to even take a stab at it.
