On tap at Hop Leaf Chicago (second visit). Dark brown, light brown head. Toasty malty aroma, hints of fruity esters. Toasty malt flavours, also a creamy nuttiness(macadamia?), with hints of hard-to-pin-down fruity undertones. Interesting.

This brown ale poured with a thin beige head and a toffee aroma. The flavor is raisins and nuts with a bit of chocolate. There is a slightly bitter dry finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Tellerís of Hyde Park. Pours a deep, cloudy brown with a small creamy beige head. The aroma is nutty, malty, and earthy, but not particularly strong. Much better once you get drinking, though. Flavor of nuts, roasted malts, leather, and massive earthy notes: grass, wood, bark, and dirt. Medium bodied, smooth, with a gentle earthy mouthfeel. Really interesting take on a brown ale, and another great offering from Bellís.

Bottle pours a cloudy brownish amber, nice foamy off-white head, attractive lacing, with soft carbonation.   Huge toffee, caramel & latte aroma on this one.   Smells inviting!   Butterscotch, slightly unsweetened, and toasted malts on first sip.   Decent body, slightly creamy mouthfeel.   Finishes sweet, slightly buttery... tiz good.   A little heavy/rich for an every drinking Brown, but its good.   Thanks goes out to footbalm for the trade!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is light to medium brown.
Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain/bread, caramel), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs, flowers).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation.
A very easy-drinkiní, well-balanced brown ale. Thereís not too much going on in the nose, especially malt-wise (itís more hoppy than malty, but thankfully the hop nose is very herbal/spicy/floral, not a crude resin-bomb), but itís ok, not unattractive and no flaws. I wish the nose was as enjoyable as the flavor balance, and itís too bad the ABV isnít lower because at 4.5% or so this would be a terrific session beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orangey Brown coloured with almost ruby reflects displaying an honest small-to-medium white head. Aroma is loaded with sweet malt giving it this particular flavor that I can never find the right english word to describe (Sucre d'orge). Overall very sweet , but nevertheless balanced although I didn't have more than 7-8 sips. Suggestions of vanilla, honey, ginger, milk chocolate and a fruitiness approaching cherry at times. Finish displays a slight note of hops in a ashes like manner. Body is medium-full and fits the medium flavor intensity perfectly.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12-oz. Pours a murky and very dark brown with a billowing, fluffy off-white head. Somewhat soapy nose, soft cookie dough and caramel notes in there as well. Somewhat watery and fairly light body, a bit slippery, very soft carb. Earth, caramel, and soap on the mid-palate. Mild finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy, my bottle. Slightly hazy deep mahogany with a smallish beige head. Sweet roast caramel/chocolate malt aroma, a little yeasty, some green hops, hints of lactose. Taste is also roast sweet malt, quite a nutty and dusty character, tries to finish dry and a little bitter. Average body, somewhat flat, lightly syrupy - for a brown, itís okay - could have more character, but it doesnít anger me like some do.
