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.

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

Tap at the brewery (very cool place btw...). Poured dark brown with a beige foamy head leaving nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts and some coffee. Taste of roasted malts and nuts... Solid beer, quite nice.

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.

Mmm, an all around very good brown! Attractive deep brown pour w/ a tan head that leaves lacing. The aroma is a very subtle roasted malt. The taste is rather light on the mouthfeel but the flavor still shines through. Easy to drink & quite tasty! Great example of a brown!
Earlier Rating: 8/20/2013 Total Score: 3.5
This is a tasty brown! My only knock is that itís a tad on the watery side of the finish but all the flavor is there to make this complex and delicious. Has a cool transparent brown pour but w/out a head or any lacing. Enticing chocolate malt aroma. Very solid and quite nice for fall!

Dogbrick (7669) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Sample at Ginger Man NYC. Pours brown with a medium khaki head that dissipates gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and slight coffee. Medium-bodied with flavors of roasted nuts, malt and mild coffee. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

5oz sampler size at the source. Poured a nice medium-dark brown color with a nice light tan head. Aroma was nice roasted malt, roasted and toasted nutty notes. Flavor was nice sweet roast, with some nut character. Pretty easy to drink, nice and tasty.

guzzler67 (1491) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Cloudy, deep brown appearance with an average size off white head and modest lacing. Earthy aroma of roasted malts with hints of toffee sweetness. Flavors evolve nicely from the initial toasty caramel malts to a more complex blend of dark fruit, rich grains, coffee and smoke. Aftertaste is bittersweet, with a medium-to-full body and a lasting finish.

EithCubes (4752) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Nose strongly nutty and deeply roasty, beautiful ash and hard toast, dark chocolate. Pours deep cola with a soapy light brown head. Taste lightly sweet with little bitterness, touch of sharp tartness to begin, dries with time. Nutty, woody, deep chocolate, a little mineral color from the yeast, malt is thin and much of the roast has disappeared. Body is too full and doesnít match well with the slight acidity.
