COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brown ale to end all brown ales. Enjoy it, because there is no longer any reason to drink another. Youíve 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 donít approve of that Constitutional Monarchy crap.

Smells of caramel, malt and coffee. There is a semi biter taste but mostly a coffee and malt flavor. Interesting brown.

BillKismet (3502) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2015
Chestnut brown, creamy caramel head. Complex malty nose with several grains merging into a rich bouquet--brown malt, darker crystals, adn more. Very smooth. The body is decidedly nuttier than the bouquet, and has a dustiness to it. Medium to light-bodied.

Hazy brown with reddish hues. Light smokey Nose with toasted grain, brown sugar, and faint chocolate roast. Flavor is clean, sweet toasty malt, with some faint roasted malt and a touch of salty smoke.

crossovert (9207) - Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2015
650ml bottle purchased on discount. Hilarious marketing. Not the greatest beer though, more of an amber ale, light thin body, a beer that would be more suited for 6 packs.

krumbum (704) - truckee, California, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Big roasted nutty aromas. Thin carmel brown color with no head. A good nutty brown that is impossible to look at the bottle and drink. Itís a great beer but the graphics make it hard to enjoy as much as you should.

Brown with off white head. Nutty and malty. Had this poured in small glass from draft at the American Beer Classic 2015.

Tap. Pours clear hazel, medium tan head, solid lacing. Aroma is roasty, ash, dark breads. Flavor is medium sweet, nutty and a bit smoky, well roasted malts, but no acidity. Very light bitterness. Smooth finish. Medium body. Enjoyable.

Draft at Ei8ht Ball, served in a taster. Glad to get to try this one on draft so I didnít feel compelled to pay for the surprisingly expensive bottle and see that label in my fridge. Anyway, it pours a clear brownish amber gold color with a small khaki head that leaves ropes of lace and wisps of film. The initial aroma was on the weak side, but it opened up fairly quickly to much more toasted malts, nuts, earth, brown sugar, faint smoked meat, and tobacco. The flavor is a weaker, smoother, more watery version of the same. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a smooth mouthfeel. I feel like an imperial, bigger bodied, better carbonated version of this would work better.

This is 1 damn good brown! Tantalizing super dark brown pour w/ a tan head & lots of lacing. The aroma is dark chocolate malt. The taste is of light roast & malt. It has a really nice mouthfeel. My only knock is that it ends kind of abruptly. Thereís good flavor until the finish but nevertheless this is still a very good beer!
