COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our most popular brewmaster special brought back by overwhelming requests. A classic British nut brown ale. Full bodied, complex and interesting yet mild in flavor. Our interpretation of this style has distinctive hop aroma and flavor. (O.G.-1.052, IBUs 23)

12oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark brown with a one finger tan head. Aroma of caramel, coffee, cocoa, along with some toasted malt. Really a nice roasty character with this beer. The roasted characteristics continue into the taste. Some cocoa and coffee up front with caramel in the background. Toasted malt and maybe a little pipe tobacco. A light bitterness emerges towards the finish with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall, a run of the mill brown ale that doesn’t really stand out from the pack. Although it is fairly refreshing and a local brew that I would probably get again sometime.

A pretty nutty aroma; brown color. Decent. Some maltiness, sweet and a bit sticky but not too bad. Finishes too sweet for me.

Almost no aroma, off-white head, light roasted flavor with a dry, lightly carbonated finish. A little generic if you ask me.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2012
Clear red brown color with thin white lacing. A lot of roasted nuts on the aroma. Smooth and creamy mid palate with a nicely sweetened finish. Great example of a nut brown.

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2012
12 oz. Clear, deep copper-brown, with a lasting half inch of meringue. Big aromas of dark-roasted nut and earthy bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is the same, with some graham cracker and a hint of caramel apple. Nice finish of char and prickly green herb. Medium body is soft and smoothly carbonated, with a great balance between the caramely malt and the touch of hops and roast. Almost an old style English porter; excellent brown.

Bottle from Sean - thanks! Pours a clear, medium colored brown with a scattering of tan foam. Aroma has a nice roast quality followed by light tobacco and perhaps some minimal bitter hops. Taste is a very enjoyable mixture of roasted malt, tobacco, nuts, supporting bitterness from the hops, and the slightest tinge of malt sweetness after the finish. Excellent transition among the different components of the flavor. Mouthfeel is clean with some bite from the carbonation. This beer really impressed me with the focus and precision of the roast/tobacco character and the supporting hop bitterness. Excellent beer.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Excellent sweet brown ale. Maple brown color and leaves some lacing on the glass. Finish is sweet syrup and a hint of dry fruit at the finish. Very drinkable brown ale a winner in my book

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - NOV 8, 2011
12oz bottle, best by end of Nov 2011. Served at 45F.

Pours clear copper brown with a small light beige head that leaves a few spots of lacing and recedes to a wispy cap.

Aroma features some mild nuts, toffee, but also some unfortunate cardboard and maybe slightly metallic. Moderate strength but does get a little better as it warms.

Flavor is better than the aroma and has some caramel, toffee, brown sugar, nuts, some herbal hops, fair sweetness mild bitterness, little alcohol.

Mouthfeel is light/medium bodied with strong carbonation.

Average Brown Ale, not terribly impressed overall.
