UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 Very dark brown on the pour, almost porter looking. Nutty, with light sweet notes. Taste is consistant throughout the drink with a bit of bitter on the palate.

Mike, thanks a ton for this. You da man! Two bottles, one poured into a pint glass and the other was poured into a mug. The appearance was a hazy brown color with a one finger white foamy head in both glasses. The head lasted a bit longer in the mug than the pint and once the head died the lacing was the same in both, kinda messy and all over the place. The aroma offered a strong caramel to molasses sweet nuttiness. There was a light toffee lightly pervading. The taste followed the aroma in pretty much the same way. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. This one just rolled right on over my tongue in such a graceful way - wow! Overall, this is quite an impressive Brown ale that I know I would have again. This was very worth seeking out.

Bomber from Steve’s in Fitchburg, no bottle date and cellar aged about 2 months before I got around to it. Pours a cola color (brown with nice reddish highlights) with a beige colored spongey head. Some drips of lace down through the glass. Aroma has sweet molasses, caramelly malts and some nice roast. Not expecting the coffee component - from a Brown! Taste is of sweet caramel, some brown sugar and some molasses, yet not overly sweet, as roasty nuttyness fought through. Medium to full bodied with a bit of an alcohol presence, and thick enough to be a porter. Finishes to the sweeter side of the bitter - sweet scale, but nothing cloying about it. This is a nice brew; quite unexpectedly so. Kudos to Bear Republic. 14.8

Well its a brown ale. Actually its a pretty good brown ale. About the best I’ve had, right up there with CC Maduro. Tawny brown color, modest foamy thick head. Nose is a touch nutty, molasses, caramel. Flavor similar, with touches of chocolate, more nutty and a light herbal hop finish, hint of spice (almost nutmeg but not) and possibly citrus, and balanced clean finish. Overall very clean fermentation profile. Very drinkable with flavor.

Pours a deep ruby red brown. With a small off white head. Aroma of faint fruit and syrup. Tatste is sweet dark syrupy with a nice faint bitterness in the finish to offset the sweet nicely. Well balanced b ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alliswell, Brooklyn tap ($7): Pours muddy brown with a beige head. Aroma is light chocolate, with some caramel malts, and brown sugar. Taste is a substantial brown ale. Quite malty. It is not too sweet. Subdued hoppy undertone. Pretty good.

22 oz bottle for 2 bucks. Pours dark brown with an amber hue to it and a tan head. Looks pretty nice. Aroma is brown sugar and chocolate. Taste is about the same with a very mild hop flavor as well. Body is average with a nice creamy texture to it. Average carbonation. Overall this is quite a good brown ale, a style I’m not normally a fan of. I can’t rate it very highly because it’s not as robust as I like, but it’s still very good and easy to drink. Recommended.
