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.

Chocolate, coffee, and nuts. Good mix. Oatmeal gives a nice texture. Well balanced. Dark brown.

12 oz. can from WillRunForBeer - many thanks! To white wine glass, it pours a rose-tinted Coke light brown with which an off-white head half a finger in length. Aromas of toasted oats, Munich malt, DME, graham crackers, roasted peanuts, and Starbucks cappuccino. Tastes the same with the addition of sour grass, tin, and spent grain. The coffee, for me, was more like coffee beans dunked in a brown ale or dunkel than an actual brewed cup of joe: oily and slightly acidic. Bitter coffee bean flavor experienced at swallow (and mostly throughout consumption.) The hops could best be described as English nobles, and I didn’t care for them all that much. Interesting.

Can gifted by AirForceHops, thanks! Pours medium brown with a scant off white head. Aroma is caramel, raisin, coffee. This is a little thin, but has a nice chocolate flavor. Some coffee bitterness to balance, but this still ends a touch sweet.

Very dark brown, reddish hues, a thin white head. smells like a standard brown ale but with some creamy oak. Really nice mouthfeel, creamy, malty with some english hop bitterness.

This beer is an interesting ale. Its smoky earthy and hoppy at a perfect balance. This is one of my favorite beers.

12 oz. can From Binny’s Lincoln Park. Standard brown color with thin fizzy head. Aroma is oak flakes and nutty roasted tones, sugar. Smells hearty.

The aroma got me excited. Flavor is good, roasted chestnuts, caramelized sugar /malts and some very faint chocolate. The flavor is good but was hoping that the oats would provide a more robust body. This body is on the lean side. Enjoyable and I finished the can very easily.

Bottle from Binny’s in Bloomingdale, IL. This is an excellent brown ale. Nice deep brown pour with a soapy head. Sweet and roasty oat and nut on the aroma - nice and rich. Nice rich nutty flavor with a hint of chocolate. Just a very well made beer. Definitely stands out big time in this style.

hopscotch (9518) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle... Pours dark brown with copper highlights and a small, creamy, taupe head. Olfactory standouts are nuttiness, dark chocolate and deeply-roasted coffee. Medium bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Chocolaty, sweet, nutty flavor, followed by a chocolaty finish.

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.
