yum, this is a damn good Brown ale, but thats what to expect from such a great brewery. sweet hoppy aroma couples with a great smoky, dark and rich brown, great bitterness makes this brown have a wide range of taste.

For a brown ale this is damn good. Good roasty malt flavors with hints of chocolate. Taste is smooth and well balanced with a toasty finish. Pours dark brown with a creamy tan head that stays forever. Very smooth and enjoyable brew.

Started out promising- at least asthetically. Brown red in color. Big soapy bubbles for a head. Huge, big malt nose. Turned out to be thin in the mouth. Decent roasted malt flavors. Not much of a "tribute".

I like Tribute beers--gosh I hope someone makes a good beer in my memory. Or better yet, make it while I’m still alive so I can enjoy it! Would it still be a Tribute ale? Brown (as expected) with...a hint of cherry there? Cheesy in a way. Decently composed brown ale.

(Bottle) Pours a dark brown with a paper thin head. Aroma of roasted coffee, sweet malts, nuts, and semi-sweet chocolate. Flavor resembles aroma.

Bottle. This can be summed up pretty easily. It is a brown ale that doesn’t suck. You could say that it is a brown ale with a little bit of personality. High malt presence with a nutty sweet taste. Slightly cloying with a dry coffee like finish.

dark brown with a thin skin of head. chocolate aroma. taste is a fresh clean malt that wakes up your tongue. not much hop to this, just enough to keep a balance. has hints of fruit, mainly grape and also toffee and brown sugar notes, but chocolate comes through the most. one of the better brown ales i’ve had.

Dark red body, floating sediment, large tan head, nutty, malty nose with a touch of the hop. Nice malty body, medium sweet, mild bitterness.
