COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is loaded with a wonderful roasty/nutty flavor. Chocolate malt and the right touch of Chinook hops blend together for a full body.

looks like a mud puddle, but thatís a good thing, nice and nutty but in the immortal words of Chuck D. "Donít believe the hype" Bellís Best Brown and Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar blow this one away

Reddish-brown color. Small head. Malty, roasted aroma. Slight hop aroma. Some fruitiness in the nose. Some hop bitterness. Some roastiness. Malty flavor. Light body. A good solid brown. Extra points for a great label. ...... Towards the end of the bomber: Iím liking this beer more and more. A good drinking beer. Very smooth and yummy! Iíd love to try some of this on a cask.

Ruddier color than most brown ales. The aroma is strangely both too sweet and bitingly sour, at once. Itís not really very pleasant. It smells a little like prune juice. The flavor is nice, especially after the aroma. Itís mildly sweet -- not complex, but pleasant. A balanced, sweetness that has no beginning and no end. It sits in the middle of the tongue and kinda stays there.

Slightly cloudy red color. Sweet malty nose. Nicely balanced malt backbone, nicely bitter hop finish. This one has defenitely been talked up, or it was just humiliated by the awesome complexity of beers like La Terrible or Seigneuriale Reserve tasted in the same session.

Nice chocolatey malt aroma. Biscuity, mellow, nutty flavour. Well balanced, not too bitter (like some American brown ales). I wouldnít call it world class, as some have, but it is a better than average brown ale.

man, do I feel bad for this. expectations were sky high. very disapointing, Iíll take the Rouge anyday. Too bad that Boyne River is going under, because I feel that I should sample this again. None the less a good brown ale, just not the best.

Pretty good. A little light on the taste. Iíll take a Bellís or Rogue over this.

Really quite good but I donít see what the fuss was all about. Iíd still go with Rogueís Hazelnut Brown over this. A pretty straightforward Brown, I thought. (Note: this is going on memory from drinking it 2 days ago.)

Sweet roasted malt aroma, cloudy plum colour, medium sized toffee head. Smokey roasted malt flavour, with some bitterness. Smooth, creamy, an extremely fine Brown Ale! Thanks PsychProf.

Well, PsychProf was very fired up to make sure that everybody joined the Boyne Brown fan club...hmmm....dark brown, chocolate aroma, dry maltiness with biscuits, touch of toffee...pretty typical brown ale material quite frankly.
