COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s unique recipe for Brekle’s Brown—a tip of the hat to our first brewmaster—looks to both the past and the future.
Mark’s special blend of roasted malts, inspired by the all-malt brown ales in Anchor’s brewing archives, gives Brekle’s Brown its coppery brown color and its unusual depth of flavor—richness and complexity without heaviness.
For brewing and dry hopping, Mark has chosen a single, American hop variety called Citra. The subtly entrancing flavors and aromas of this distinctive new hop perfectly complement the unique maltiness of Brekle’s Brown.
Ingredients: Water, barley malt, hops.

Ysok02 (999) - MOns, BELGIUM - MAR 23, 2016
Superbe robe brune aux reflets ambrés, mousse crémeuse. Nez tout en élégance sur des notes lactées, caramélisées, épicées, fruitées. Bouche à l’attaque crémeuse, une superbe élégance, une bulle fine et une finale acidulée. Une très belle brune raffraîchissante.

Swaroga (2103) - Gdańsk, POLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Brown and cloudy with a medium head. The beer has a burned cake, cinnamon, vanilla, caramel, nuts and some chocolate cake aromas. Watery with medium carbonation. The taste is like aroma but more fade and dry. Earthy and spicy dry on the tongue, medium long finish. Easy to drink and not bad beer overall.

BlackHaddock (6336) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
1st Feb 2016: 355ml bottle into a Chimay badged chalice at home. Lovely red hue to the clear body, on top a lightly tanned blanket of foam. Malty molasses rule the nose, their sweetness controlling the flavouring too, mild bitter aftertaste from the citra hops they used (no citrus fruit notes though), but the malts fill the mouth and your senses really and the aforementioned bitterness is also due to the roasted malts in the brew also.
