COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Ring Neck Braun Ale is the initial offering in the Brau Single Batch Series of beers. A perfect autumn ale, this big double nut brown ale is dry and fruity, yet surprisingly drinkable. Nutty flavor is derived from both biscuit malt and toasted oats. A hint of raspberry and classic British hops round out this mild and complex brown ale.

A brown appearance of course. Some nutmeg, chocolate, and toffee in the aroma. The flavor is somewhat sweet and contains chocolate, nutmeg, and toffee. Overall I thought this was a nice brown ale.

oakbluff (414) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a dark mahogany with some ruby tones. Quickly disappearing head. Nose- expected brown malt smell along with a raspberry concentrate smell. Taste- biscuity malts and ripe raspberries. Finishes too quick- not much complexity on the back end. Light hopping. Good cabonation. Beer is somewhat sour as you get into it.Decent effort.

Pours a transparent copper mahogany with a thin-lacing light tan head. Aroma of sweet dark caramel malt and some nutty notes. Body starts lightly sweet with some chewy caramel malts and a touch of lightly toasted malts toward a drier finish. A pretty decent brown ale.

piscator34 (1968) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottled sample via oakbluff. Brown-red in colour with medium (albeit somewhat spritzy) carbonation. Aromas of vanilla fudge, a bit of strawberry and raspberry, and some toasted malt. A bit fruit forward in the mouth (raspberry again) with more mild chocolate, toasted nuts, and a bit of earthy British hop. More sweet than roasty. Would be fairly heavy in the mouth if not for the carbonation tingle. A bit too fruity for me, but still fairly nice.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Poured from a 12oz bottle(thanks Tyler!) and served in a Bell’s dimpled mug. This beer poured a semi-translucent brown color with a lasting tan head. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of caramel, nuts, and biscuit. The flavor was nice and malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, nuts, along with a mildly spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel was medium-bodied and smooth with light carbonation. A very nice example of the style. I wish I could get my hands on more of this!

Bottle thanks to tytoanderso: Pours a reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma, caramel, some dried fruits, and some spice. Flavor, nutty caramel, some spice and some earthy notes.

12 oz. bottle. Pours out a nice dark brown with a thin quickly fading head. The aroma is of a sweet bread/malty nature. Upon tasing I found it to be a little thinner on the palate than I was expecting but it was fine. Flavors I found were chocolate, nuts, and a little fruit. I found the finish to a bit off as it left a lingering after taste, (not in a good way) but very drinkable. No lacing to speak of. It is a good beer that could become better with a little more hops.

Tap at Stubs. Hmm, fairly high hopes for this one. I got a lot of coco sweetness to it, but overally thought it was quite thin. REally drinkable, but not as much flavor going on it the way of hops or nuts as I would like. Not bad overall.

Bottle. Biscuty and lightly toasted malt aroma. A hint of cocoa powder, which I imagine derives form the oats. Pours a fairly attractive rich brown with some nice amber highlights. Flavor is slightly nutty with some malt and oats. A tough of roastiness. Nice offering! Keep it comin’, Dustin and crew!

(bottle) Pours dark brown with an off-white head. Nice aroma of toasted nuts and roasted malt. The flavor was sweet with caramel initially and some roasted coffee, but then this yielded to a somewhat dry cocoa-like finish that was a little odd. Pretty good though.
