COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there is no longer any reason to drink another. You’ve reached the pinnacle. A healthy blend of traditional British malts give this popular style a semi-sweet, biscuity, slightly roasted flavor. Oats thicken the mouthfeel, and a handful of specialty malts add complex chocolate, toffee, and caramel notes. The hops are mostly traditional, earthy British hops, but we cocked it up a bit with some Cascade late in the boil just to show those snooty Brits that we don’t approve of that Constitutional Monarchy crap.

Can at Clarkies. It pours dark brown with a thick beige head. The aroma is toasted grain, cocoa, coffee grounds, earthy roast and wood. The taste is bitter - sweet, earth roast, coffee grounds, cacao nibs, toasty, wood and light ash with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent brown ale.

airrick2003 (865) - Louisiana, USA - AUG 23, 2016
Appearance: pours with a medium light tan head that retains well, the beer is a very dark black, some ruby hues are visible around the edges when held up to the light Aroma: coffee, lots of coffee, dark roasted malt Taste: lots of coffee flavors, has a coffee bitterness on the finish too, not a sweet porter at all Palate: lively carbonation, light mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste Overall: I like this beer, a good strong porter that isn't sweet and has a sessionable abv, not very complex but executes well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

kaserov (167) - Oviedo, SPAIN - AUG 22, 2016
Color negro con capa de espuma marrón de menos de un dedo de grosor. Poca carbonatación. Aroma a lúpulo y café. Sabor lupulado primero, con regusto final a malta tostada y café. Interesante, pero nada que no haya visto antes.

jgb9348 (5676) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Nice deep brown coloured body with a thick, very fast-dying tan head, about four centimetres at start and goes down to absolutely nothing a few seconds later. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, caramel, toast, grain and wood. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong rich malty flavour with a good deal of caramel, toast, nuts and earthiness. Aftertaste shows some toast, caramel, earth, grain and a touch of candy with a little malt and not much else. Overall, a pretty good brown that borders on a mild ale with some nutty and sweet flavours and little else. I sampled this 50 cL can purchased from the Kona Wine Market in Kona, Hawaii [Island], Hawaii on 10-August-2016 for US$6,30 (not cheap) sampled all the way down on the NorthWest corner of the island of Mo’orea in French Polynesia at my hotel on 16-August-2016, for perhaps the first time an ATG beer has been sampled down here!

Can. Brown colour with beige head. Toffee and chocolate aroma. Sweet, toffee, chocolate and roasted taste. Medium body.
