COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English Brown Ale
Demonstrates the robust flavors of chocolate and coffee. Muddy brown coloring and mild bittering provide a rich, smooth flavor profile; a proper reward after the harvest is over. Rich in agricultural history, the harvest is a critical part of life in Sussex County, Delaware, that spans the entire year. This beer celebrates those who feed their communities.

Draft at Middleton’s in Annapolis, MD; dark brown color with minimal tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, toffee, light coffee and some nuttiness. Taste adds notes of chocolate, stronger coffee, caramel toast and light fruity/citrus hop bitterness. Light-medium body, low-moderate carbonation, creamy with fruity/roasty finish. Some nice depth to this brown ale, good.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle at Rustico in Stevensville, MD. Clear, very dark mahogany with a khaki head and good lacing. Ai roasted malt, mild chocolate and a touch of nuts.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Serving: Draft at the brewery. Dark brown pour. Not much in the way of a head. Light roasted malt notes. A little nuttiness. Very pleasant. Light to medium body making it very drinkable. Slightly sweet up front with notes of roasted nuts, a hint of coffee, and malt. Fairly clean finish. Well done.

Thanks Chris for the bottle. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a murky dark brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell had a sticky nutty to caramel aroma with a decent toffee in the background. The taste was pretty much the same. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The aftertaste and finish are dry and nutty. The carbonation was slightly harsh but not overbearing. Overall, I say this was a pretty good brown ale that I would have again.

20140602 5 oz pour at 16 mile Taphouse. Now that’s a proper brown ale. Beer cola, that’s what I like to call it. Again, a nicely attenuated 16 mile brew. This one is pretty by the book. Let’s be honest, I love me some brown ale even knowing that most are half assed.... but this one is worth drinking again.

12. Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours dark brown with a big tan head that leaves a very decent lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and coffee combined with some grain. Taste mostly roasted malts, coffee and chocolate notes, balanced with caramel flavors and a nice bitter finish. Nice beer, very enjoyable.
