COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is one monster of a Brown Ale! We used an obnoxious amount of chocolate malt and roasted barley to give this beer a cast iron backbone. Our Oatmeal Brown pours a dark mahogany with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee.

AbbeyRoade (354) - Missouri, USA - OCT 20, 2014
Slightly sour but probably just artifact from being outside at Mactoberfest and trying so many beers despite rinses in between most tastings. Great thick body and full flavor. Aromas are good- nutty cocoa throughout.

Draft to pint at 4 Hands. Looks good for the style; a fairly transparent dark copperish brown with light beige head. Smells solid; a nice balance of malt and toast with a bit of nuttiness as well. Tastes like it smells with an mouthfeel. An enjoyable brown ale.

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On Draught at the Brewery.
Pours a deep reddish brown with a little head.

The aroma is rich & nutty with some earthiness, some toasty malt. It’s aromatic, malty, and inviting.

The flavor is lots of toady malt and a light vanilla. It’s nicely roasty with a decent level of malt & hop bitterness.

a decent enough brown ale for sure, this is one of those styles that seems to be picking up some steam in recent years.

Frothy tannish head atop dies to a pleasing ring, nice stick around as a thicker ring, ok lacing. Aromas are gentle cocoa, carmelized malts and touches of toast, gentle roast, faint coffee. Initial is a bit toasty, medium bodied with a bit of caramel, toast, carmelization. Touches of chestnut, earth and decent roastiness. Middle is a touch sweet, gentle caramel and toffee meets some distinct carmelized elements, oatmeal sweetness. Backend is a bit dry, toasty and earthy. Solid Brown that isn’t all that sweet, nice toast and carmelized elements. Solid.
