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.

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

Absolutely SPECTACULAR!!! Yet another delicious brew from the masters at 4 Hands! This brew is dark chocolate in color with a small tan head. The aroma as well as the taste are of coffee. This is not too bitter and not too incredibly carbonated. Drinks very smooth and pleasant on the tongue.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 On tap at the 4 Hands Brewery. This is a tasty brown ale with notes of coffee and malt. Pours dark ruby reddish brown, mostly clear. Fantastic on tap and just as good out of the bottle. Almost tastes like a stout but with the body of a brown ale. Amazing beer.

EtTuCthulhu (1141) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 29, 2013
This beer has a medium off-white head and is a dark brown with an amber tint, and the aroma is strongly like oatmeal and slightly like chocolate, vanilla, and roasted malts. This beer is of a medium bitterness while being a little sweet, but the finish is long and hearty. Finally, the combination of the flat carbonation, medium body, and creamy texture are pleasing to the mouth.

Dark brown, lasting head. Smell is coffee and caramel. Flavor is peat, cocoa, coffee. Very nicely balanced, prickly carbonation as opposed to slick in an oatmeal stout.

Tap at Hangar 9. Pours a clear dark brown with about a finger of off-white head. Aroma of burnt malt, coffee, caramel and some dark chocolate. Taste is about the same. Roasty malt, coffee, burnt sugar and some chocolate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Overall, this is one great beer.

On tap at Bangers and Lace. Pours a near black with an earthy light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice combination of coffee and roasted malts with a bit of dark grain backing. Flavor has a similar combination of roasted malts and coffee with a hint of bitter chocolate and a hint of dryness.
