The aroma blends caramel, roasted, and nutty malts with a hint of vanilla, and the beer pours a clear dark brown color with a small off-white head. The taste is about equal levels of sour and sweet--both mild--with the sourness being slightly stronger, and there is a slight level of umami shining through as well; furthermore, the palate fuses a slick texture, medium body, long finish, and a soft carbonation.

Pick this up from Total Wine in Durham NC. Got this doggy in a 12oz can, cause why the hell not. Pours out a dark brown with a slight cream head. Nice smells of coffee and chocolate. Malty chocolate hits nice and smooth with the first sip. A little hops on the backend. The chocolate malt really comes through IMO. The aftertaste is sweet but fades fast. But you really don’t want a brown to linger long. Very smooth, very drinkable. A great brown ale.

Hella fine brown ale. Best ive had, in fact. Chocolate, coffee. Hops do not stand out, conforming to the style. Really really good. Too expensive though.

Love Avery, love the name and the marketing - just not a bug brown style fan. If I choose brown, I choose Avery!

Poured very dark brown with thin off-white head. Aroma is bready and slightly sweet. Taste is full-bodied for a brown ale. Bread and caramel predominate, but there is a nice dryness to balance it. Smooth finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(can) dark brown color, with a beige, quickly disappearing head. Roasted aroma of milk chocolate and nuts, along with nice but not overpowering hops. Taste is just like I like it in American brown ales - a little sweet, but not too much, and with a moderate bitterness as well - quite balanced. In line with the moderate abv, the body is light to medium. Not sticky, with am average carbonation. Short finish. Quite drinkable. I like it.

Nice rich brown ale. Darker than most brown ales. Just turning the corner from brown to black ale. Slight sweetness to start followed by roast malt and a bit of smoke. Ends with very slight bitter. Mixed half a glass with a sour red. Quite nice actually!
