UPDATED: AUG 27, 2013 Slight gusher of bottle and I think this wasn’t as good as it usually is?? Slight aroma of malt and caramel nice dark brown pour with huge head. Fan of the taste (cabonation was off) malty sweet balanced with caramel that is at end and slight hops in middle. Interesting brew

Nice clear red-brown colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of toffee, malt, light grassy hops, little bit of coffee. Taste is light sweet with a light salty/sour/v. light bitter finish. Quite thin, watery texture, light carbonation. OK, but not that exciting to be honest.

Pours very dark brown; almost black.thin off-white head. Smells of dried fruit and caramel. Notes of chocolate and coffee. Taste is dry, bitter coffee on a core of dark malts.
Medium-bodied. Good brew.

Bottle. Terrific brown base with a hearty, white cap that vanishes super quick. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, wood, nuts, and a hoppy bitterness. Taste is much the same, but instead of a malt-forward aroma, taste boasts the dry wood, hop, nut character. Still has a great malt balance. I dig this.

Pours a dark brown with nice creamy off white head that goes flat quickly. Aromas of caramel and smoked malts. Nice full robust soft mouthfeel. Caramel malt follows through in the mouth, with lovely long lingering aftertaste. Loved this.

Draught at Brewdog Edinburgh. Red/brown color, white head. Bitter taste with grapefruit, caramel, hops, nuts and a bit of roasted malts. Bitter finish with grapefruit and pine. Very nice brown ale, although the aromas rather resemble IPA / pale ale.

Bottle, shared at Three Boars. Bold malts, bold citrus hops combine to make this a full-flavoured brown inthe same spirit as DH Indian Brown. I love the versatility of this style, and I’d have a hard time stating my preference between the bitter/hoppy vs the sweet/fruity/nutty beers in this category-- I just like when they don’t skimp on the ingredients. Yum!

Hmm. The slight hoppiness is interesting. Always thought browns needed something. Wish it were a tad bit more thick.
