Faint aroma, chocolate malt, caramelized sugar, spicey hops. Dark ruby brown in color, OK off-white head. Flavor is a nice blend of hops and malt. The malt has aspects of chocolate, hazelnut, and biscuits. The hops are subtle - spicey and piney. Finish is moderately bitter, with both roast and hop bitterness detectable. Medium bodied. A nice example of an American brown ale - flavorful and easy drinking.

Dark brown color. Large foamy head. Aroma is fairly mild, but it’s nutty with a touch of brown sugar. A medium bodied brown ale. Malts are nutty and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and piney. Hoppy for a brown ale, but Bear Republic makes it work. The dryness contrasts nicely with the malt and brown sugar sweetness. Nicely balanced. Very smooth. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 8, 2004
Clear and very dark brown in color. Large creamy looking head. Malty aroma with a mild hops and hint of celery (I seem to find this aroma in a lot of brown ales - I think I need to do some research on this, or maybe stop trying brown ales). Light malt sweetness followed by a dry malt and nut flavor. Somewhat thin in feel. This one tastes a bit like an english mild, but is too strong in the alcohol department (even though the alcohol is not present during the quaff). Interesting hop bite late in the swallow. Once again a brown that I can drink but, not much that I can get excited about.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a foamy light brown head. A pleasant rich malty aroma with caramel at the finish. Rich and creamy malt flavors with molasses and a sweet sugary finish.

The beer pours as deep a mahogany as you can get without being brown with garnet high lights, the head is pythonic size, the texture spumous with the color a beauteous light than as it transmogrifies the lace forms a thick and sealing sheet upon the glass. Sweet malt dominates the nose, vanilla, hints of caramel and a nut like tone also noticed, start is quite sweet, nice malt presence, top is middling in feel. Finish is mild in carbonation, the hops pleasing and subdued in their spiciness, somewhat dry with a bit of tartness and a long lasting aftertaste, personally would have expected a bit more body overall, not a bad beer, just a tad light in the wrong places for me.

Had at the brewpub in Healdsburg. Poured a brown color (duh!) with some red hues. Nice meduim off-white head. The aroma is malty sweet with little else evident. Taste is very sweet and rich but not so much that the alcohol doesn't balance the palate. Body is a little thin. Not a bad brown.

Pretty cool that this stuff is a tribute ale. The beer is a little lighter than other browns. Brown sugar and molasses make this a fairly sweet beer. It's worth a try.
