A brown beer that balances the influences of English malt and yeast and American hops. Notes of chocolate, coffee, toffee and caramel play nicely with a healthy dose of citrusy hops, making for a noteworthy twist on the traditional concept of a Brown Ale.

Malt: Pale, Munich, Brown, Chocolate

Note: Formerly known as Black Market Anglo-American Style Brown.

TedE (811) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 25, 2015
22 fl oz bottle into pint glass. Cocoa/chocolate nose. Hazy red/brown beer with two finger white head. Sparse carbonation. Flat mouthfeel, oily texture. Finish is coffee bitterness and a hint of fruit cordial. Somewhere between a brown ale and a stout. Much nicer as it warms.

Little hop, lots of cocoa and coffee notes. Pretty progressive brown. Goes with the sandwich I’m eating.

CLeclercq1961 (118) - Temecula, California, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Overall pretty good brown. Poured an amazingly clear brown with nice layered tan head. Aroma subdued but brown malts evident. Taste of biscuit lightly toasted barley and some toffee sweetness. Way better than that swill Newcastle. I’d get again.

Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy dark copper color with a thick foam head. Rich malt aroma and flavor. Very nutty. Doesn’t have any sweetness to speak of. A little bitter even. Hop presence late in the palate. Middle of the line brown for me. Not bad.

Everything I want in a Brown Ale. Delicious malt body, not overly sweet, balanced hops. Really enjoyed this beer!
