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.

One of the best browns I’ve had. Tons of malts, mostly caramel but with a nice burned chocolate aftertaste. Tried at Westport Ale House in 2015.

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.

Yum. Had this on draught, and perhaps it was because it was a nice fall day, but this hit the spot. Dark, roasted, caramel, thick without that sometimes overwhelemd bitter coffee roasted flavor.

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.

Chopped chocolate and hefty malt nose. A hint of spice and burnt caramel. First sip is smooth and velvety. Chocolate, roasted almond. Sweet finish that lingers. A delicious beer!

Can. Pours clear mahogany with nice tan head. Nose is caramel and oats. Tastes like a rich brown ale with a creamy mouthfeel. Very good b

Cast Iron brown is quite possibly the best brown ale I’ve had, playing up powdery chocolate and earthy spice components in both flavor and aroma. I found myself sipping this one slowly, watching the malt-dominated flavors expand and give way to well displayed hops that both balanced the malt,and put on a delicate earthy spice dance of their own. Pours crystal clear dark brown with a 2 finger frothy light beige head. Wish they this one back home, On tap at Doubletree in St Louis.
