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.

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

9th July 2016. Can shared at Rosses I Torrades with the RBESG guys. Chocolate and coffee flavours dominate this dark Brown Ale that pour out with a full beige coloured head. Some sweetness in the brew along with a light bitter hoppiness late on. Liked it.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6538) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 14, 2016
Sampled from a 16 oz can this beer poured a very dark brown color with a huge frothy foamy orange-beige head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was toasty and roasty with nut, wood and a hint of coffee. The flavor was bitter, woody, toasty and malty with a bit of roasted malt and nut. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.

Can shared, masisve thanks to kermis... Dark brown with short lasting beige head. Lots of cold coffee, sweet milk chocolate, and that fake organic chocolate stuff that nobody likes. Creamy malts and hazelnuts. Over medium sweet and light bitter. Medum bodied.

angel77 (2276) - oviedo, SPAIN - JUN 15, 2016
Lata 50 cl de el Lupulo tomada en el momento en vegin 11..06..2016. Lote ES00094 de cervezalandia hasta 12..2017. Color marrón oscuro casi a negro con bastante espuma beige. Aromas y sabores intensos maltosos tostados con toques algo espaciadora de vainilla y caramelos con toques ligeros de regaliz. Final amargo seco duradero. Cuerpo medio a intenso con 5.5 vol algo denso y espumoso. Bastante buena y con bastante sabor para su gradacion, para repetir sin duda. (r154)

Beachmaster (435) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 11, 2016
Tall boy into a pint glass. Pours a clear medium brown, with a huge khaki head that lasts. decent lacing. Nose is nuts and roasted malt. Taste follows, with a slightly bitter finish, like the style should have. Thin body, but a creamy mouth feel. Good brown.

scotchzombie (520) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Pours dark brown with a thick and soapy tan white head. Minimal wet lacing. Aroma is rich, roasted chocolate malts. Nutty. Taste tends strongly to the bitter roast upfront. Eases into a slightly soured milk chocolate finish. Leaves you with a funky roast flavor. Quite dry. Tends to roasted chocolate malt, bitter, sour milk. Good depth for a brown.
