Sweet malty dream. Nice caramel aroma and color, good frothy head. Great example of the style.

Rock and roll with this caramel induced brewski. Did I say caramel. If you dont like that then stay away, otherwise bottoms up ..... Big Sky is solid.

Twelve ounce bottle poured medium bark brown with a hint of red, small white head with yarn-like lacing. The nose was of molasses and hay; the taste, of brown sugar, honey, and wheat with faint citrus. The body is silky and smooth and of medium weight with mild carbonation. The finish was both sweet and sour. I think I tend to rate browns more harshly due to my preference for hops and wheat, but I think I still prefer Rogue Hazelnut and even Samuel Smith Nut Brown to this.

One of my first craft beers - chose it for the name and didn’t regret it. Excellent color and texture with a taste that would lead you to believe it has a higher abv. Excellent.

Reminded me of New Castle with more “stick” and more malty goodness. . .
Pours dark brown, smells like a mixed nut trail box with malt. . .
Dried dark fruits, coffee, cocoa. . .
Great Brown ale, would buy again anytime. . .

An excellent brew. Deep brown appearance with a modest head that releases faint malt and nut aromas. Fairy light on the palate, but taste is excellent with nutty flavor and hints of roasty aftertaste.

It poured a big tan head in my growler which dissolves slowly and smells sweet, mellow, a little molasses. Dark dark brown color allows light, but not a lot. Nice coffee and VERY light hop flavor. Wonderful mouth feel, not thick, or too thin. Goes down easy but doesn’t peter out and leave you disappointed either. Just good, malty chocolate without being sweet or overpowering like so many big beers. Sometimes I wish it had more punch but that would diminish the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th that always seem to follow so happily.

A good brown ale with a great strength of flavors. Good pour with foamy head and brown copper color. Malty but, a little more bitter than I’m accustomed to. Other than that its a good beer that goes good with anything.
